Message from the Chair

Dear Community,

Congratulations to the worthy 2021 Awards honorees!

Citizen of the Year:  Christina Spitz

Golden Sparkplugs:  Ingrid Steinberg, Krishna Thangavelu, Matthew Rodman, Rick McGeagh and Scott Cullen.

Board Meeting Update:  At PPCC’s last Board meeting on November 18, 2021, we heard important presentations and announcements.

First, we were honored to welcome Captain Jonathan Tom, Commanding Officer, LAPD West LA Division, as our guest speaker.  Capt. Tom provided information about crime and public safety in the Palisades.  He will return at future meetings to give a three-part presentation about a program that LAPD is developing for community engagement with law enforcement.

The Awards Committee also officially announced the Citizen of the Year and Golden Sparkplug awardees. The awards will be presented and we will celebrate with the honorees on December 9, via Zoom.  All are invited — stay tuned for more information!

The Pacific Palisades Historical Society announced an upcoming special event on January 15, 2022, to celebrate the Centennial of the founding of Pacific Palisades.  For more information and to register for the event, visit Palisades History.  PPCC expects to sponsor and facilitate the planting of up to 100 trees to honor the Centennial.

I also announced that the PPCC Land Use Committee (LUC) will hold a public meeting on January 11, 2022 at 5:30pm, to discuss and consider input from the community about zoning development standards that govern residential construction in R-1 / non-hillside / coastal areas of the Palisades.

Finally, the Board unanimously voted to support a motion in City Council by Councilmember Buscaino, calling for an ordinance to ban overnight vehicle dwelling on residential streets while allowing such dwelling in other designated areas via a free permit system coordinated by homeless services providers.  See the PPCC position letter HERE.

For more information about our 11/18 meeting, see the 11/18 Meeting Recap.

Public Safety: Extensive materials on public safety and disaster readiness, compiled by PPCC, can also be found HERE . . . and we continue to invite the community to visit County COVID-19 Vaccinations for updated information about COVID-19 vaccines and booster availability.
