The LA-32 Neighborhood Council Elections are SATURDAY from 9am to 5pm at Farmdale Elementary School (MAP).

Come and vote for the candidates of your choice. Those that are elected will be YOUR voice to the LA City Council for the next two years. We are your neighbors who have volunteered for this service to our community.

You may be wondering if you are a stakeholder. According to our Bylaws:

Neighborhood Council membership is open to all Stakeholders. Stakeholders shall be defined as those who live, work, or own property in the neighborhood and also to those who declare a stake in the neighborhood and affirm the factual basis for it.

Basically, if you are reading this, you are probably a stakeholder of the LA-32 Neighborhood Council. When you come to vote, be sure to bring with you the proper documentation to prove you live, work, own property, or can claim a factual basis in the LA-32 NC area. Click here for a list of acceptable forms of documentation.

Phone-Scam-Flyer-041414

Persistent phone scammers are deceiving LADWP customers into paying non-existent water and power bills with threats of immediate service shut off. Don’t fall victim to phone scammers posing as LADWP “collection” personnel.

  • LADWP employees will NEVER ask for personal payment information over the telephone. They will never ask you to purchase pre-paid cash cards from a convenience store to pay your utility bill.
  • Payment by telephone can ONLY happen through the Department’s voice automated payment system, not with live employees. LADWP personnel do not accept payment information verbally over the telephone.
  • If you get a call asking for a cash card or credit card number or other personal financial information, hang up and call LAPD.

Safety and service excellence are of utmost importance to LADWP. Victimization of our customers will not be tolerated. Impostors can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Wake Up Call

111424C-PROPOSED-SIDEWALK-EXHIBIT-B

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.

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.
