Last week, GHNNC was proud to join Councilmember Mitchell Englander, community members, and stakeholders in activating the new traffic signal at the Knollwood Plaza.

The Balboa Blvd-Knollwood Plaza Driveway project added a traffic signal and vehicle entrance/exit to the Knollwood Shopping Center. Secondary work added new curb and access ramps that will provide safe passage to the center for pedestrians. The project’s undertaking is unique in that the local community and business owners of the Knollwood Plaza were instrumental in achieving its success. Without their support, this project would not have come to fruition.
