In 2011, Los Angeles adopted a Bicycle Plan that includes a network of bike facilities spanning the entire city.

In 2013, LA DOT proposed installing 0.4 miles of bicycle lanes along Devonshire between Haskell and Sepulveda within the right-of-way. This installation will bridge the existing bike lanes on either end and create a continuous bike lane from Topanga Canyon in Chatsworth to Woodman in Arleta (8.7 miles). The then-department manager of DOT, signed off on the project in October of 2013.

The proposed  project would include restriping only. No excavation or construction will occur as a result of this project and will not change access to existing facilities and properties. On-street parking spaces will not be eliminated.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ray Garcia  Zoning and Land Use Chairmen Member.

As California continues to weather through the drought, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s Water Conservation Response Unit (WCRU) is stepping up public education and enforcement of the water conservation ordinance with three additional staff members and specially marked vehicles. The additional staff has already begun patrolling the city of Los Angeles for water waste and responding to tips provided by phone, email and through social media.

LADWP’s General Manager Marcie Edwards says, “The WCRU will help remind customers about our watering restrictions, the importance of saving water, and enforce the ordinance in a friendly yet firm way.” She adds, “They are also great sources of information on how to become more water efficient in your home and outdoors, where about half of all water is used.”

L.A. is currently in Phase 2 of the mandatory water conservation ordinance. This phase prohibits the following uses of water in Los Angeles: Continue reading

Zero.

Goose Egg.

There were NO robberies reported within the boundaries of LAPD’s Mission Area last week.

“Frankly, I can’t remember another week when that happened, not even Christmas week,” said Lt. Paul Vernon.

So how does that compare?

In the prior 4 weeks there were: 5, 14, 8, and 5, respectively.

This year, the weekly average of robberies is 7.

One-quarter to one-third of the robberies are what’s called ESTES (court case) robberies, where a shoplifter at a store is confronted by security then then the thief uses force to overcome resistance to arrest in order to keep the stolen loot and get away.  Such action elevates a petty theft to a robbery, by law.

Year to date, there have been 219 robberies in the Mission Area, compared to 238 last year, a drop of 8 percent.

Los Angeles: Today, Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff stated the following:

Today, my fellow Commissioners and I completed the process of reviewing Chief Charlie Beck’s request for a second five-year term, and we granted him that request in a 4 yes and 1 no vote.

We received a great deal of help in our decision making process, and that help came from the people of Los Angeles. I want to thank each and every person who sent an email, wrote a letter, or came out to a community meeting to let us know exactly what they want, need and deserve in their Chief of Police. These comments made an impact on each of us and we are very appreciative for the assistance.

This process lasted approximately three months and included numerous interviews with Chief Beck. During those interviews, Continue reading
