A section of El Sereno may receive a historical preservation designation. Meanwhile in Echo Park, residents want a safer community and they have to spell out what that means to the LAPD. And over in Glassell Park someone wants to put five dwellings where there should be four.
Before You Go: It’s a good idea to check with organizations to find out if meeting items and times have been changed or postponed.
- Does Chevy Chase Park need a dog (bark!)park? And possible action regarding the Glendale Hyperion Bridge improvement project. Wednesday, November 12.
- At this week’s Safety Committee meeting in Echo Park, a number of resolutions and motions will focus on removing war weapons from schools; concerns about an overreaching LAPD; racial profiling and keeping residents of Sunset Boulevard safe. Tuesday, November 11.
- A motion by Councilman Jose Huizar would appropriate $25,000 for a survey of the proposed El Sereno historic zone. The Berkshire Tract sits in the northeast section of El Sereno bordering South Pasadena and is an example of the old Arroyo Culture, probably because some of the homes date back to 1906 when the neighborhood was established. Wednesday, November 12.
- Three vacant seats are up for grabs on the LA-32 neighborhood council. At the same board meeting, LA-32 will review a motion against the development at 5639 E. Huntington Drive North because of the site’s historic significance. The board will discuss 12 streets in need of repair. Monday, November 10.
- The applicant at 3324 Chapman Street would like to put five dwelling units in an area zoned for four. The Zoning Administrator will consider if the 9,612 square-foot lot can accompany a new 7,714 square-foot multiple-family apartment building.
Glassell Park & Lincoln Heights
- Holiday lights are coming – At least to a pine tree in an Eagle Rock Boulevard median. Councilman Gil Cedillo is requesting $1,500 for maintenance fees for the installation and removal of holiday lights. Wednesday, November 12.
- Most neighborhood councils have been buzzing about holiday events for a few weeks now. The Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council has its own Holiday Parade Committee this Monday, November 10.
- The applicant at 2266 Edendale Place would like to convert a single-family dwelling into a duplex, along with the addition of a 400 square-foot carport on a 10,395 square-foot lot.
- Sunset Triangle Investors are requesting a conditional use permit to sell a full line of alcoholic beverages at 3705 Sunset Boulevard. This would be the former location of Indian restaurant Naya Sunset, so the location is equipped to be reopened as a restaurant and bar, with seating for 145 patrons. Thursday, November 13.
