This Saturday, May 10, Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council will hold (S)Elections for the 2014-2015 CSPNC Governing Board from 11:00 to 3:00 at CRAFTED – 112 East 22nd Street right next to the park. You don’t really need the address do you?
Palisades Residents may be reminded of the continuous, positive work CSPNC deals with related to our quality of life. Most recently was the announcement of the widening of Hamilton Avenue between Patton and Barbara among other traffic developments related to the Landslide and general resident and school traffic flow. Much more is ahead and being solved, including Neighborhood Watch enhancements with Senior Lead Officer Eve Wight and the LAPD.
Meanwhile, on the voting front, there are prizes for the 250th, 500th and 1,000th, voter – so let’s get out to CRAFTED and make our vote count… There is not a candidate forum, however you will likely find several of the candidates at CRAFTED depending when you show up to vote, if you have questions or issue positions you’d like to understand. And, of course while at CRAFTED you can do a little shopping, socialize with neighbors.
This is your chance to “Select / Elect” who you feel is most qualified to “Locally Listen and Lead” our Coastal neighborhood. It’s been a very productive, positive year, with many positive developments and accomplishments to carry forward –
In case you were wondering, yes, there is still time to run! (May 8 is the deadline to submit) See cspnc.org for details.

“Last week, work crews under the supervision of the Bureau of Engineering uncovered a crack eight feet below the surface while performing excavation work at the White Point Landslide in San Pedro. While we do not know how long the crack has been there, the preliminary investigation determined that there has been no additional earth movement since the landslide in November of 2011.
A more detailed geotechnical analysis is being conducted and should be complete in about a week. The current work to drain and stabilize the hillside is unaffected and remains on schedule.
The safety of the hillside continues to be my top priority. That’s why I support the recommendation from the White Point Landslide Advisory Committee to restore the roadway with a retaining wall that will maximize the safety and stability of the entire area,” said Councilman Joe Buscaino who represents the Los Angeles’ 15th Council District.
Yesterday, after learning new cracks emerged in the White Point Landslide area, Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council (CSPNC) made immediate contact with the necessary agencies (mainly CD15 and Bureau of Engineering), for the safety of the residents and general public in the event of another incident, and will be monitoring / communicating the situation to stakeholders and Palisades residents as it develops or learns more.

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!
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.
