Located on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles Fire Department Station 69 is a familiar sight to every Palisadian and traveler who passes through.
Tracey and David Price of the American Growers Company, a local organization, are now preparing to launch a landscape beautification project to re-vamp the exterior greenery and ensure the station maintains visual appeal.
At a recent Pacific Palisades Community Council meeting on Oct. 25, Tracey shared details of the proposal, including the installation of “flowering trees” and “an automated sprinkler system” to take care of the low-maintenance plants. There will also be a grassy seating area.
In order to raise money for the project, LAFD Captain Robert Bates announced that a Pancake Breakfast and Buffet Fundraiser would take place on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8 to 11 a.m. at Porta Via Palisades, located at 1063 Swarthmore Ave.
He identified the most important aspect of the event as the chance to “meet the community members and serve them [well].”
“The family friendly event will offer children and adults the chance to get behind the wheel of a fire truck, pose for photos with our local heroes and even meet the Wilshire fire dog,” according to a statement from the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation.
Tickets to the Pancake Breakfast are suggested in the form of a $100 donation, which includes a “hearty stack of pancakes” in addition to a wide array of breakfast specialties.
There will also be a silent auction and an opportunity to win prizes and gift packages to restaurants and retail stores in Palisades Village.
