Message from the Chair

Dear Community,

Coronavirus:   We continue to invite you to visit County COVID-19 Vaccinations for updated information.

Disaster Readiness:   
Recent fires have brought the need for wildfire preparedness to the forefront.  PPCC has compiled extensive materials on public safety and emergency preparedness, which can be found hereNote also:  Emergency Preparedness Town Hall (via Zoom), September 23, 2021, with Brentwood Community Council — details to come.

Board Meeting Update:   At PPCC’s last Board meeting on September 9, 2021, we welcomed LAUSD Board Member Nick Melvoin, who spoke about school reopenings, the School Board’s recent decision to require all students ages 12 and over to be vaccinated, and upcoming infrastructure improvements in the Palisades schools complex.  We thank Mr. Melvoin and his Chief Advisor Allison Polhill (also PPCC’s Education Advisor) for attending and sharing this valuable information.

The Board heard updates about SB 9 and 10 (signed by the Governor since the 9/9 meeting — see PPCC EC Statement linked above) and about recent developments in the Will Rogers State Beach homeless housing matter (see report from the Executive Committee linked above).  We also had an update from CD 11 Transportation Director Eric Bruins on the status of the City’s “Micromobility” program (dockless electric scooters).  Residents should call 3-1-1 or use the MyLA311 app if they see scooters improperly parked or if they observe any other problems with scooters.  For more details about scooter requirements and reporting, see Scooters Reporting Information.

In addition, the Board took unanimous action on two important motions:  We voted to support the motion in City Council by CM Buscaino for a resolution designating all public (LAUSD) schools in Los Angeles as sensitive uses for enforcement under the new “anti-camping” ordinance; and we approved a letter requesting that CM Bonin bring a motion for the City Council to designate all schools, day care centers, public parks and libraries in the Palisades as sensitive uses under the anti-camping ordinance.

Finally, we started a brief discussion about proposed toll-pay express lanes in the Sepulveda Pass on the 405 Fwy; further discussion and possible action about comment on the proposal may occur at the next PPCC meeting.

For more information about our September 9th meeting, see the Meeting Recap.

Upcoming Zoom meetings (note differing start times):

September 23, 2021:  5:45pm — Abbreviated PPCC Board meeting:  farewell to outgoing PPCC members; thank you to Officer Rusty Redican; possible action re I-405/ Sepulveda pass toll-pay express lanes proposal; 6:30pm — Emergency Preparedness Town Hall with Brentwood Community Council (details to come).

October 14, 2021:  6pm — PPCC Board meeting:  Welcome new organizational members; additional topics to be announced.

October 28, 2021:  6pm — PPCC Board meeting; (tentative) LUC report on zoning in the Palisades.

Note:  PPCC resumes twice-a-month Board meetings in September and October, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month.  There will be one meeting each month in November and December.  Meetings will continue to be held via Zoom until further notice.

I look forward to seeing you around town and at upcoming PPCC meetings!

Best regards,

David Card
