Magnolia Park's Mom-and-Pop shops are in danger
of being forced out due to rent increases...
Magnolia Park is a beloved neighborhood in Burbank, California. Described by the Burbank Hospitality Association website VisitBurbank.com as “just minutes from Downtown Burbank, this hip neighborhood is truly in a world all its own. Look for quirky boutiques, vintage antiques, chic eateries, and something new around every corner.”
We are now in danger of losing what has made Magnolia Park the charming, cool, and quirky destination it has become: the small businesses that have worked so hard to create this special community.
Sadly, Mom and Pop shops are now being forced out due to astronomical rent increases – sometimes in the thousands of dollars a month. Even though they are successful, many independent merchants cannot afford such dramatic increases.
We have all come together because we recognize we are at a tipping point. We care about our neighborhood and want it to continue to thrive. Let’s all work together – Mom and Pop shops, Landlords, Residents, and the City of Burbank - to come up with common sense solutions that will allow Magnolia Park to keep growing while its roots are firmly planted in the community.
This site was created to help spread the word, get people involved with our community and ultimately #SaveMagnoliaPark from the same fate witnessed in Westwood Village and on Melrose Avenue: vacant storefronts, inconvenient parking, and loss of character and vital foot traffic for those businesses remaining.
#SaveMagnoliaPark is a work in progress and we will endeavor to update with information regularly.
Thank you for visiting and your continued support as we work to #SaveMagnoliaPark
