New Howard Drollinger Street Sign in Westchester

Councilman Bill Rosendahl and Karen Dial, daughter of Howard Drollinger, reveal a street sign named after the Westchester developer.

Councilman Bill Rosendahl presented the unveiling of the new Howard Drollinger Way street signs today in Westchester at 89th and Sepulveda, and honored Karen Dial, Drollinger’s daughter.

The City officially changed 89th St. to Howard Drollinger Way years ago, but did not replace the street sign until today.

Founded in 1947, H.B. Drollinger Co. grew to be Westchester’s largest property management company, responsible for developing much of downtown Westchester.  Howard’s mother, Ella Drollinger developed the first commercial building there, the Jim Dandy Market.

“The history was amazing that this man was a part of, and helped to create,” Rosendahl said, as he recalled a meeting with Drollinger as the developer talked him through 70 years of Westchester real estate and business growth.

Also honored at the event was Miki Payne, Operations Manager of H.B. Drollinger Co. who was recognized for her  ever-present commitment to Westchester community progress.
