CSPNC (S)Elections this Saturday

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.

Here’s who is “Feelin’ Board”, in alphabetical order, so far – and of some them are familiar names who are fellow Palisades residents who have been successfully guiding the ship on behalf of us:

Here’s the Daily Breeze article.

CSPNC | January Motions near the Ocean

Three motions were passed during the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council last week that is of interest to Palisades Residents.

They are:

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.

PRA Members are busy serving on the CSPNC Board and Committees for all of our benefit. Stay tuned for a PRA Annual Meeting notice.

Palisades Point of View – November

As November comes to a close – Happy Thanksgiving! Warm, healthy, holiday wishes to you and your family…

Here’s a couple of updates for you:

SOCIALLY CONNECTED |
Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Watch – plugged into LAPD. If you have not already added yourself (Facebook account needed), now’s the time. Very informative and relatively up to the minute for residents of the Palisades, South Shores and General Vicinity.

WHITE POINT LANDSLIDE |

Watch the (City’s) latest update on the “stabilization” progress. Many residents are increasingly interested in the original cause, in addition to the preparation of one of the couple of road restoration options and interim activity leading up to it.

Well-spoken Stars of the Show: Palisades very own Mike Browne and Peggy Lindquist.

MIRACLE ON 37TH STREET |

That’s right – the Corner Store is delivering once again – a great neighborhood event on December 21, beginning at 5:30. Make sure to check out all the very cool, popular kids and local Holiday gift items available in store beforehand though, as they are likely to be sold out by the 21st!
