Intersection Improvements 4th St & New Hampshire

4th St & New Hampshire Mini-Roundabout proposed

LADOT is getting to work on a safer intersection! Part of the 4th Street Greenway Project corridor, the 4th & New Hampshire Mini-Roundabout is designed to calm traffic and improve connections and crossings for everyone, whether walking, biking, rolling or driving.

Please share your feedback and your experiences below. Learn more about the project by visiting https://ladotlivablestreets.org/projects/4th-Street.

To provide more feedback on ways to make traveling by bicycle and walking less stressful in Central LA, go to https://ladotlivablestreets.org/projects/central-la-stress-free

A test run was done early in the year. The results were great and met with good feedback from the community. Make sure you join the committee Transportation & Public Safety to get first insight into these projects.

Metro Line Extension Community Conversation Purple (D Line)

As we all know Koreatown has the Purple & Red line going through our neighborhood. This has provided useful transportations for many years now. As some might know or will start to hear about, Metro is doing an extension that will reach Westwood from Downtown. This means our community can visit more areas in the Purple Line.

Wilshire / La Cienega, Wilshire / Fairfax, Wilshire / La Brea


Metro is currently doing a community feedback for local neighbors of the area, stakeholders, & community members who would benefit from this extension. They are holding two events to ensure they get community feedback. Community Walk Audit & Community Roundtable. It’s important to participate as feedback can change the way the stations are finalized. Additionally, participating will get you a $50 gift card for attending both events.

Schedule

Thursday, January 14th: 6 – 7 pm: Community Walk Audit Training Session (Option #1)
Saturday, January 16th: 10 – 11 am: Community Walk Audit Training Session (Option #2)
March: Community Roundtable

Join Community Conversations to provide input on plans and receive $50!

How Do Neighborhood Councils Work?

Neighborhood Councils are the closest form of government to the people. They are advisory bodies, who advocate for their communities with City Hall on important issues like development, homelessness, and emergency preparedness. Neighborhood Councils are part of the Los Angeles City government, and have annual budgets funded by taxpayer dollars. Neighborhood Council board members are City officials who are elected by the members of their local communities, but they donate their time as volunteers. The Neighborhood Council system was established in 1999 as a way of ensuring that the City government remains responsive to the different needs and lifestyles of Los Angeles’ rich variety of communities. There are currently 99 Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles, each serving about 40,000 people.

WCKNC currently represents more than 140k residents.

Census 2010

State of Local Emergency March 4

Mayor Garcetti declared a state of local emergency March 4 for the City of Los Angeles to access state and federal funding to strengthen and support efforts to prepare our region and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

On Wednesday night, the Governor announced a new California Department of Public Health policy to cancel or postpone all gatherings of 250 or more in addition to smaller gatherings held in venues that do now allow social distancing of six feet per person.

Yesterday, in implementing statewide guidance to City policies, the Mayor announced his directive to postpone or cancel all non-essential public community events or group activities of 50 or more participants in order to limit the risk of exposing staff and the public to the virus.

In accordance with these guidelines, and in the interest of public health and safety,
ALL GENERAL BOARD AND COMMITTEE MEETINGS & EVENTS ARE HELD ONLINE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

First time at the general meeting

The general meeting is where it all comes together. Agendas are made public ahead of 72 hours from the set date. Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of the month. We’ll break down the structure of the meeting and give you a quick summary. The best way to understand a general meeting is to personally attend. It’s publicly available to everyone including committees.
