Did You Vote?

Our City Councilperson is one of the most important politicians we have representing us. Their ideas and actions guide how City Services are provided, where needed funding will be allocated, what kind of development will happen, how infrastructure will be maintained and a myriad of other areas. Our City Council Seat for District 4 is open and in the primary 14 candidates were on the ballot. There will now be two candidates competing in the May 19th election and it’s important that the right person be chosen. You can find more information about the candidates at CD4 Candidate Statements: http://graphics.latimes.com/towergraphic-candidates-city-council-district-4/
Please take a few minutes, decide what candidate best reflects your ideas about where the City should go and VOTE on May 19th!

Neighbors in Quadrant One (Lillian Way, Cahuenga and Wilcox), met to discuss options for managing the intersection of Rossmore and Clinton. The challenge was to balance safety with resident access to their neighborhood. The Department of Transportation will be modifying Clinton, westbound, at Rossmore so that only right turns will be allowed. The crosswalk will be removed and signage will be added to warn motorists to slow down. We’ve asked the Councilman to provide funding to move up the installation of left turn arrows at Rossmore and Melrose, reducing cut through traffic. After these measures are implemented the DOT will see if any further traffic safety measures are needed.

Don’t forget now is the time to plant a tree. Contact the Tree Committee on the Association website to get a tree planted.
