The next Mar Vista Bi-Monthly LADOT/CD11/LAPD Traffic Committee meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 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 September 20th meeting is not complete at this time, but it will include any unresolved matters continued from the Committee’s previous meeting on July 19, 2017, plus any new items received prior to the closing of the Agenda for this meeting. The final Agenda will close on Wednesday, September 13th 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, September 13th 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 November 15, 2017
PLEASE NOTE THE DATE CHANGE TO 9/28!
Paola Cervantes and Kristin Sherman of Voyages Preschool will tell us about the GrandPals intergenerational activity program that she launched in 2016 with Sunrise Villa Senior Living. Together they set an intention to enrich the lives of participants by meeting weekly in a group they call GrandPals. The children and older adults share stories as they engage in activities manipulating multiple materials. Through these stories, they are strengthening bonds that will deepen their community ties. These bridges across lifetimes honor and reconnect the rich biological relationship between the very young and the very old and bring reflection and purpose to both.
This is part of the Mar Vista Community Council Aging in Place Committee Speaker Series.
Ful agenda will be posted 72 hours prior to the meeting
