Board Meeting Update: PPCC’s Board meeting on April 22, 2021 featured the Board’s consideration of the Executive Committee’s proposed Position Statement opposing the proposal in Councilmember Bonin’s recent motion for a “study” to place homeless housing on Will Rogers State Beach. A large crowd was in attendance. The overwhelming opinion expressed was that the motion’s proposal should be opposed. The PPCC Board voted unanimously to adopt the Position Statement. Accordingly, a letter containing the Position Statement has been sent to public officials. See Position Statement Letter.
In addition, the Board heard an informative presentation on the 2021 City redistricting process, by Michele Prichard, Commissioner/CD 11 volunteer representative to the 2021 LA City Redistricting Commission.
For more information about our April 22nd meeting, see the Meeting Recap.
