Board Meeting Update: PPCC’s last Board meeting on June 10, 2021, featured an update on the CAO’s study of CM Bonin’s proposal to use Will Rogers State Beach parking lot for homeless housing.
First, the Executive Committee has retained experienced environmental attorney Dean Wallraff, Executive Director of Advocates for the Environment, to represent PPCC in connection with our opposition to the Bonin proposal. We are very pleased to be working with Mr. Wallraff. In addition, the Executive Committee has sent a strong letter to the CAO, listing the many reasons was the proposal to use the Will Rogers State Beach parking lot for this purpose is infeasible.
We invite the community to donate to PPCC’s legal fund, in order to ensure that Will Rogers State Beach will not be used for homeless housing. Donate HERE.
We also had informative presentations by CD 11 Transportation Deputy Eric Bruins on regulation of robotic “personal delivery devices,” and by PPCC Homelessness Advisor/PPTFH Co-President Sharon Kilbride on the recent, successful multi-jurisdictional hillside encampment task force, spearheaded by Capt. Jonathan Tom. Thanks to all who participated in this tremendous initiative.
In addition, the Board passed two motions recommended by the Westside Regional Alliance of Councils: support for use of “5150” holds and for additional funding for more psychiatric beds for severely-mentally ill homeless people, and support for clarity of regulations regarding “ghost kitchens.”
Last but not least, PPCC current officers were re-elected by acclamation for the coming term, 2021-2021. The officers thank the Board for its support.
