NOTICE OF Mar Vista Bi-Monthly LADOT/CD11/LAPD Traffic Committee Meeting
The next Mar Vista Bi-Monthly LADOT/CD11/LAPD Traffic Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Council District 11 West Los Angeles Office, 1645 Corinth Ave., in Room 201.
As always, the purpose is to find solutions to neighborhood traffic and safety issues. However, some changes in the structure and operation of the Committee and the meeting procedure were necessitated by City of Los Angeles 2010-2011 budget cuts, which severely reduced staffing at LADOT District Offices and eliminated some DOT services. As a result, these meetings are now closed to the public and attended only by the four Committee members: representatives from LADOT, CD11 and LAPD, and the MVCC liaison chairperson.
All LADOT items are presented first on the Agenda. After discussion and/or resolution of the LADOT items, the LADOT representative may be excused, and the meeting will then continue with Agenda items for consideration by the remaining Committee members. The Minutes of the meeting will be posted on the Committee’s website about a week after the meeting.
The Agenda for the May 16th meeting is not complete at this time, but it will include any unresolved matters continued from the Committee’s previous meeting on March 28, 2018, plus any new items received prior to the closing of the Agenda for this meeting. The final Agenda will close on Wednesday, May 9th and will then be posted on the Committee’s website, at www.marvista.org.
This is your opportunity to help solve traffic-related problems and safety issues in your neighborhood. If you have concerns you want placed on the Agenda, please e-mail complete details to Committee Chair Linda Guagliano, firstname.lastname@example.org, by 12:00 noon on Wednesday, May 9th so the item(s) can be included and posted on the final Agenda for the meeting. Be sure to include your full name, address and phone number. Requests received after the Agenda is closed may be re-submitted to be heard at the next scheduled meeting on July 18, 2018.
Let’s talk about sidewalks and how to adapt without driving! Alissa Walker is the Urbanism Editor for Curbed. She covers the systems that govern our cities—like infrastructure, transportation, and policy—and how they are adapting with technology. Americans are, in general, living five to 10 years longer than they should physically be behind the wheel, says Jay Walljasper, author of America’s Walking Renaissance and a walkability consultant for AARP. “We are outliving our ability to drive safely and comfortably,” he says, yet seniors keep driving because their independence relies on it. “If you stop driving, you cease to exist as a viable human being.” This evening will be a great opportunity to provide input on what we need to age safely and to learn how LA is adapting to support our aging community.
At this meeting, the committee will be joined by Claudia Martin, Neighborhood Prosecutor from the Office of the Los Angeles City Attorney. Ms. Martin will discuss quality-of-life crimes including issues created by homeless encampments.
This meeting will continue the discussion of proposed revisions to MVCC Bylaws and Standing Rules.
