Pledge Summary

The City of West Hollywood was officially incorporated in 1984. At approximately 1.9 square miles and 35,000 residents, the city provides core services with eight public parks and an overall walkability score of 91. West Hollywood is located in the heart of metropolitan Los Angeles County and has earned a reputation for being “the creative city” with its progressive approach to local government including many critical social movements and protection of our environment. Mayor Sepi Shyne is committed to saving the monarch butterfly and other pollinators with the signing of the Mayors’ Monarch Pledge and looks forward to engaging with community members in building more pollinator habitat throughout the city.
