ADAMS HILL — In a move that members say will allow it to better represent the neighborhood, the Adams Hill Homeowners Assn. will now welcome renters and businesses into its ranks.
The group, now called the Adams Hill Neighborhood Assn., is the only such association to make the move.
“We’ve always welcomed people who were renters to come to our meetings and express their opinions,” said President Christopher Welch. “We wanted to make it a little more official and really truly welcome all people who live in the neighborhood.”
The change makes the organization similar to the 89 neighborhood councils found throughout the city of Los Angeles. These groups welcome all stakeholders — defined as anyone who lives, works or owns property in the defined area — to participate.
