Message from the Chair
Coronavirus: PPCC stands with the Palisades community as we all struggle to cope with the pandemic and the resulting Safer at Home directives. We will continue to be a voice for Pacific Palisades during this difficult period. We invite you to visit:
- Coronavirus LA, County Public Health, COVID-19 Hub, and County COVID-19 (extensive information about the status of the virus in Los Angeles, including FAQ, orders, press releases and digital maps & dashboards)
- County Roadmap to Recovery and Recovery Poster (the phased approach to reopening safely)
- Coronavirus Updates (from Councilmember Mike Bonin)
- Capt. Tom Message (from LAPD West Division Commanding Officer Capt. Jonathan Tom)
- Post Business Hours List (Palisades store & restaurant hours during the crisis)
- Meeting Recaps, News & Announcements (past PPCC bulletins, ongoing information, updates and links)
BCC-PPCC Meals for Heroes: PPCC thanks the many generous Palisades and Brentwood community members who donated more than 4000 meals to our brave frontline healthcare workers and first responders from March-May 2020 — and supported our local restaurants — via the Meals for Heroes program!
Proposed Homeless Shelter: Councilmember Bonin has announced that the City will be winding down the use of recreation centers as emergency homeless shelters and that the Palisades Recreation Center is no longer being considered for use as a homeless shelter. For information about the Executive Committee’s position, see PPCC EC 4/4/20 letter and additional communications linked in our Meeting Recaps, News & Announcements page.
Officers’ Nomination & Election: The officers’ nomination & election process (2020-2021 term) is now suspended due to the pandemic, but the Nominating Committee has been appointed pursuant to our Bylaws and will resume its work when the PPCC board is able to begin meeting again (see information below). Nominating Committee members: Sue Kohl (Chair), Steve Cron and Cathi Ruddy.
Upcoming Meetings/Resolution to Suspend & Extend PPCC Elections: All PPCC board meetings from March through June have been cancelled due to coronavirus conditions and the Safer at Home orders. We don’t know when regular meetings can resume. Due to the uncertainty — and because processes required for the election of PPCC officers and Area & At-large representatives must take place at in-person board meetings beginning in May and continuing through September — the PPCC Executive Committee has adopted a Resolution suspending and extending the election processes and extending the current officers’ and elected representatives’ terms of office until such time as meetings can resume and elections can be held and completed. See 3/30/20 EC Resolution.
During the time that the PPCC board is unable to meet, items subject to a comment deadline or other emergency matters will be considered by the Executive Committee for possible action (per PPCC’s Bylaws). We encourage community members to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org about any urgent matters.
Tentative PPCC Virtual Town Hall: Although we can’t have regular in-person board meetings, the Executive Committee is considering holding a virtual “Zoom” Town Hall in the near future — date TBD — which might include reports & Q&A with officials and representatives and would provide a forum for the discussion of community issues and concerns. Stay tuned for more information!
I look forward to seeing you around town and at PPCC meetings as soon as possible . . . . Meanwhile, stay safe and well!
