Board Meeting Update: PPCC’s board meeting on April 8, 2021 featured a discussion about Councilmember Bonin’s recent motion to place homeless housing on Will Rogers State Beach. With an audience of almost 480 interested persons, the Councilmember presented information about the purpose and status of the motion. Board members and other meeting attendees expressed numerous serious concerns about public health, safety, beach access and the use of this public resource — enjoyed by thousands of people from throughout Los Angeles — for a homeless shelter. The overwhelming opinion expressed was that the motion should be opposed. An informal straw poll of the Board indicated unanimous support for a motion to oppose the use of beaches and parks for this purpose: see Straw Poll Motion.
In addition, the Chair announced appointment of the Nominating Committee for the 2021 PPCC officers election. The Committee members are: Steve Cron (Chair), Jenny Li (member) and Joanna Spak (member).
