Meetings are the first Thursday of the month
Los Angeles is a city full of movie stars and all-stars, but in the summer of 2015, the real STARS will be the 7,000 Special Olympics Athletes from around the world. Apply now as a volunteer to be a part of the biggest event to hit LA since the 1984 Olympic Games.
We had a very successful Jefferson Blvd Corridor Community Clean-up day on Saturday, March 7, 2015. Big thanks to all council members and community partners Food4Less and Dereke Carr, Redeemer Community Partnerships, LA Conservation Corp, USC Cadets and Officers, LAPD Senior Lead Officers, KYCC, Korean Cultural Center, Council District 8 Bernard Parks and Cathy Davis, our graffiti team, neighbors and friends and Earlz Grill. Thank you all! What a difference a day can make!
Letter sent to Councilmember Parks:
Dear Councilmember Parks and Ms. Davis,
Thank you all for your support with the first Jefferson Boulevard Community Clean-up day. Ms. Davis was very helpful in providing us with the proper contacts. Although some of the work is done, we still are trying to get red curb zones painted, fire hydrants painted, and side walks repaired. If a person was to try to ride down the side walks they would be impaired because of the cracks, etc.
We are also still working on trying to get the NANDC banners put up along Jefferson and eventually Western and Normandie Avenues. We submitted a grant to your office and haven’t heard back yet. We would appreciate any support you may provide for the hanging of the banners–something that will be sustained in our community while carrying a message and beautifying all at the same time.
Attached in this email is an article for the newsletter along with some photos. I hope that you will be able to post these in your E-news.
Thanks again for your support and I’ll be in touch.
EC NANDC President
Los Angeles – January 15, 2015 – Freeport McMoRan has withdrawn their application to drill a new well and redrill two existing wells at their current facility on Jefferson Blvd, west of USC, in part due to the efforts of the North Area Neighborhood Development Council (NANDC). NANDC provided a forum for community concerns on drilling at its meetings and rallied the community to attend public hearings on the subject in January and November of 2014. At a November hearing held by the Zoning Administration there was sufficient public concern to trigger an extension of the public comment period.
