WEST HOLLYWOOD – The City of West Hollywood and the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce (WHCC) annually partner on a “State of The City” event to engage the City’s business leaders and the community at-large in a conversation about new initiatives, economic trends, and innovations in the City. This year’s focus will examine how the City’s redevelopment efforts on the Eastside have catalyzed the resurgence of entertainment and film industry businesses and promoted people to live, work, and play in West Hollywood.

This year’s State of The City will feature a conversation, led by NBC4 anchor/reporter Robert Kovacik, with Erik Logan, President of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network and Harpo Studios, which recently announced it will move its headquarters to West Hollywood’s historic studio complex, The Lot. WHCC Chairman Hany Haddad will deliver a welcome address and discuss the organization’s vision regarding the City’s Eastside business development. West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico will discuss the City’s vision for a vibrant Eastside business and residential community. City Manager Paul Arevalo will address the crowd with a comprehensive update about the City’s sound financial position. There will also be a short awards presentation.
