Proposed Project: The redesignation of street classifications in the vicinity of the University of Southern California Health Sciences Campus, as part of a streetscape beautification project. the redesignation would generally reduce roadway widths, increase sidewalk widths, and allow for the redistribution of on-street parking spaces.
There is a public hearing scheduled for Friday, February 7, 2013 at 10:00am at City Hall (200 N. Spring St, Room 1010 on the 10th floor). This is the same hearing location that was used for the previous student housing project. After the hearing, the case will then be brought to the City Planning Commission and later on to the City Council.
Click here for a copy of the hearing notice, radius map, and plans. The radius map highlights in grey the streets that will be affected. The attached plans also show the proposed street and sidewalk dimensions for each street. Please note that the correct Norfolk Street alignment has not yet been updated on the plans.
If approved, the street redesignation would allow USC to implement their Street Beautification plan, by allowing for street and sidewalk widths that differ from typical City Standards, generally creating wider sidewalks for pedestrians, additional landscaped areas along the sidewalks, and narrower streets.
Communities can transform underused areas of L.A.’s largest public asset—our 7,500 miles of city streets—into vibrant and accessible public space with People St, a program of the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT).
“People St is a bottom-up, community-based approach to improving Continue reading
The LA-32 NC voted, with a community impact statement, to reject Los Angeles City Council motion to ban plastic grocery bags. Voting to reject basically states that there will be no benefit to the NC community by not allowing plastic bags at grocery store outlets, also rejects council motion that paper bags must be purchased by grocery shoppers.
The impact statement can be viewed here. More info is included in the link below: a Los Angeles Times article with background info.
The ordinance goes into effect Jan 1, 2014.
On Wednesday, December 18, 2013, LA’s City Council voted unanimously to approve CF 12-1682, changing the name and definition of the Factual Basis Stakeholder to Community Interest Stakeholder, defined as those who have a “substantial and ongoing participation within the Neighborhood Council’s boundaries.”
The ordinance now goes to the Mayor for his signature and then must be posted before it becomes effective, anticipated to be around the end of January, 2014, which is in advance of any of the upcoming Neighborhood Council elections scheduled to take place in March, April, and May of 2014.

On September 2, 2013, the LADWP completed the replacement of its 39-year old Customer Information System (CIS) after over three years of planning and development.
This CIS platform touches nearly every aspect of utility operations, including customer service, meter reading and billing. It is the heart of our customer service system and used during each customer interaction by phone or online. Over time, this system will help us significantly improve the customer experience.
Any time an information system of this size and scope is replaced, issues will arise and need to be addressed within the first 1 to 3 billing cycles. LADWP is currently near the beginning of the 2nd billing cycle.
To date, approximately 3% to 5% of our customers have experienced delayed bills and late notices, and incorrectly estimated bills, which has led to periods of Continue reading
L.A.’s hidden earthquake dangers
Thousands of Southern Californians live and work in a type of building vulnerable to collapse in an earthquake. To assess the danger, a team of Times reporters combed through thousands of city and county records to identify these buildings – concrete structures built before 1976. We found more than 1,000.
Experts say we’re overdue for a major earthquake. So find out where the dangers lie, and why so little has been done about them.
