Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council Board (S)Elections Tomorrow

That’s right – don’t forget – CSPNC Board (S)Elections are 11:00 – 3:00 at the White Point Nature Preserve Education Center… Help keep the momentum of our CSPNC’s hard work for Palisades Residents! Public Safety, Landslide Traffic, SPHS Olguin Campus Developments, – it’s been quite a year…

Candidate Statements / Bios can be seen by clicking here…

Look for your copy of CSPNC’s Coastal Currents in your mailbox today.


CSPNC Board Seats Open, (S)Elections at WPNP

Just in case you didn’t see the “Get on Board” mailer, need an extra push or see an announcement in some form of media, Governing Board Seats on the 2013-2014 Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council are up for (S)Election on May 18 at the White Point Nature Preserve Nature Center from 10:00 – 3:00. Free refreshments, Naturalists and of course, voting!

But before that happens, you still have a few days to submit your name to be publicized via CSPNC’s Coastal Currents to the entire neighborhood – to be voted on.

You gotta admit (with PRA’s help and initiation of several key issues affecting us), CSPNC has done a stellar job serving this neck of the woods on behalf of the residents and is a good place to bring issues needing solving. Maybe it’s your time to lead.

Go to cspnc.org and see what is involved!

At the very least, there will be announcements soon re: the PRA Board, Annual Meeting, and yes, dues! Membership is an integral part of the fuel that drives the communication in this neighborhood.

Do you care about the future of the new Ports o Call development? Chime into our Neighborhood Council’s position of the Port’s Ports o Call Selection process at cspnc.org or attend the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council Meeting (Monday night 12.17 6:30) and the Port’s website.

Yes, it is “time to chime” rather than a fast track development process that passes you by.

CSPNC Selection on May 19 – See Doug tomorrow

On May 19, Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council is having a “selection” for its new Board Members – the same Board helping our PRA navigate through what it needs to solve our traffic, landslide and other challenges here and in the rest of the Harbor Area.

Tomorrow, (May 6) CSPNC Board Member and fellow PRA neighbor Doug Epperhart will be available at The Corner Store from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon, if anyone wants to drop by and submit their application.

In addition to upcoming Board opportunities with PRA, this is your opportunity to make a difference in our local Neighborhood Council, recognized as a leader in the City of Los Angeles and here’s your chance to run and be selected to guide the area’s direction and position – or simply vote who will!

Save the date – on Saturday, May 19, the CSPNC will hold a meeting to choose the 17 Board Members to serve for the 2012-2013 term. Anyone who lives, works, owns property or has a stake in the neighborhoods of our community is eligible to run and vote. You must be at least 18 years old.
