Three motions were passed during the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council last week that is of interest to Palisades Residents.
PUBLIC SAFETY MOTION | Alma Street Signage
The Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests that the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation immediately post weight limit signs on Alma Street entering from 25th Street and also from 37th Street, and that those weight restrictions be enforced by LAPD Trafﬁc Patrol ofﬁcers.
PUBLIC SAFETY MOTION | Alma Street
Whereas the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services and Bureau of Engineering, and Department of Transportation have identiﬁed numerous structural deﬁciencies on Alma Street between 25th Street and 37th Street, and
Whereas Los Angeles Police Department records document accident rates on this section of Alma Street far exceed the combined total of all Proposed Bond Eligible Streets in the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council District, and
Because the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council is aware of and concerned by the public safety issues identiﬁed by Los Angeles City and County agencies,
Therefore, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests a meeting with CD15 and representatives from the above mentioned departments to re-designate Alma Street between 25th Street and 37th Street from a Proposed Bond Eligible Street to a Priority Street so that funds can be allocated to make required repairs immediately, or, to close Alma Street to local trafﬁc only until all public safety hazards can be mitigated.
LANDSLIDE MOTION | White Point ad hoc Landslide Committee
Whereas the County of Los Angeles Coastal Development Permit No. 5-12-28 applicable to the newly rerouted storm drains at 1600 South Paseo Del Mar (east of White Point Landslide) includes the statement, “Once a final decision has been made regarding the repair of Paseo Del Mar, the Los Angeles County Flood Control District intends to develop and implement plans to relocate the storm drains to a location and alignment that is compatible with the repair to Paseo Del Mar, and will submit a separate application for a permit from the Coastal Commission for such work at that time.”
Therefore be it resolved, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests the California Coastal Commission and County of Los Angeles ensure that the referenced storm drains be replaced as soon as possible with a solution that eliminates the negative effects resulting from the current storm drains, including erosion, threat to public safety (the current above-ground piping is used as a stairway), and aesthetics in the otherwise beautiful coastal bluff area.
Further be it resolved, the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council requests that the City Council District 15 support the above CSPNC request as stated to the California Coastal Commission and the County of Los Angeles.
More is coming down the pipeline from the highly effective CSPNC White Point Landslide and Public Safety Committees which we’ll report it here.
