Community Meetings Tonight: GWNC, School Safety and TNP

They say good things come in threes.  Well, if you want to keep up with local issues and events, then tonight is your night, with three big community meetings, sponsored by three different Neighborhood Councils, in our general area.  The only bad thing is that it’s hard (even for us!) to be in three places at once.

First up, and most local, is the monthly board meeting of the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council, 7 p.m. at the Ebell of Los Angeles, 743 S. Lucerne.  Tonight’s agenda includes a discussion of the new city rules for dockless shared vehicles (bikes and scooters), GWNC Sustainability Committee projects, and discussions and possible votes on five local land use projects.

Next, the Mid-City West Community Council and Greenway Court Theatre will host a presentation on “Keeping Our Kids Safe at School and Beyond,” 7 p.m. at the Greenway Court Theater, 544 N. Fairfax.  Featured speakers will be LA City Attorney Mike Feuer and a panel including Daniel Barnhart, UTLA; Michale T. Pinto, architect and activist; Jacquelyn Lawson, School Safety prosecutor; Sharee Sanders Gordon, School Safety Prosecutor; Amari Williams, Fairfax HS student representative; and Scott Epstein, Chair, Mid-City West Community Council. The discussion will be moderated by Rob Wilcox. Space is limited, so please RSVP at http://www.midcitywest.org/school-safety

And finally, for those who would like to know more about the Purple Line Transportation Neighborhood Plan (TNP), which will likely bring very big changes (and lots of new density) to the zoning along our major transit corridors (Wilshire, La Brea, Fairfax ) within a half mile of the new Purple Line subways stops, the PICO Neighborhood Council will be holding a special meeting tonight, 7 p.m. at the Claude Pepper Senior Center, 1762 S. La Cienega Blvd., to discuss that topic.  Los Angeles City Planner Andrew Jorgenson will present details of the plan, and talk about how it will affect density and other facets of our local neighborhoods from La Brea to La Cienega, and Beverly to Pico.  Come make your voice heard…and, as an added bonus, we hear there will also be cookies.
