The cars are constantly blocking my driveway, they do not park in the garage, there is large commercial vehicle with advertising, they are parking in front of our house while their driveway is empty.  I have lived here for over 35 years and most of the renters are so disrespectful of the neighbors.  The owner is not helping and the problem is getting worst and worse.Is there anything that I can do?

LADOT Weekly Brief Wednesday May 27, 2015


PHOTO FEATURE:  You Go Girl!

Cast Your Vote for LADOT
The Downtown News is encouraging its readers to vote for their “Best of Downtown” choices from among nominees selected by newspaper.   While there are a large number of nominees within a number of categories to vote for, you don’t need to vote in every single category to make your vote count.  LADOT is listed in the “Best Services” category.
The on-line voting at www.votebestof.com opened closes on Sunday, May 31, 2015.  Let’s try to get as many people as possible to vote for DASH in the “Best Public Transportation” category.  The nominees are DASH, Metro Subway/Light rail, Metro bus and Regional Rail Services (Metrolink).  We were the runner-up last year – let’s be # 1 this year!

Stop, Look and Listen
Today, Fair Avenue Elementary School was one of many sites that participate in LADOT sponsored Safe Moves workshops.  Bicycle and Traffic Safety courses are given to approximately 175,000 students over the course of three years in both auditorium assemblies and interactive exercises that allow students to learn about safety by walking and bicycling through a miniature city called “Safe Moves City”. The ‘City’ consists of streets, sidewalks, intersections, crosswalks, traffic signals, traffic signs, residential areas, business districts, cars, trucks, buses and a railroad track with signals, crossing gate and train. It is designed to simulate the diverse traffic environments in Los Angeles and to create “problem solving” experiences for each grade level.  Safe Moves is a company contracted by LADOT to put on these types of events for lil’ Angelenos throughout the city.

CITYAGE: Build the Future
LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds will participate as a featured speaker at the Build the Future event: How we build — and rebuild — cities will shape the future. The number of people living in cities will increase from 3.8 billion to more than 6 billion by 2050. It means the business of city building will drive economic growth and innovation for a generation. That is the focus of this event. Her perspective as a panelist will guide this assembly of over 200 leaders from across the United States and around the world on May 28th & 29th.

dwell \on design\ LA: The Great Streets Debate
On Saturday, May 30, 2015, General Manager Seleta Reynolds, will participate in dwell \on design\ and discuss the “Great Streets Initiative” as well as its potential to guide Los Angeles into the 21st century. She will be joined with LA-Más director and co-founder Elizabeth Timme.  Together they will discuss what the future holds for L.A.’s streets and communities and how design will impact them.


LADOT’s Outstanding Performers
Members of the Transportation Committee along with LADOT General Manager Seleta Reynolds recognized Phan Vuong of the Temporary Sign Division and Barbara Porter of the East Valley District Office for their great efforts in providing excellent customer service and making our department a better place to work.

Phan Vuong consistently goes above and beyond her respective job duties to make Los Angeles streets safe for the public. Phan assists in processing a large volume of requests from FilmLA, DWP, Bureau of Streets Services, our Mayor’s Office and many more, processing 21,094 work orders with her team in this fiscal year to date. She has also gone to the extreme of working from home when needed, making work hours less hectic to process more requests, and better serve the City of Los Angeles. Phan’s dedication and professionalism make her essential to everyday operations.

Barbara Porter, Senior Clerk Typist at the East Valley District for 17 years splits her time between the East Valley and West Valley Districts when staff shortages arise. Each year, Barbara deals with over 10,000 phone calls, replies to more than 4,000 email requests, and logs and screens about 4,000 service requests. Barbara’s understanding of how the Department of Transportation operates makes her an asset to the city, and for callers with problems, she will know exactly who to refer them to if she can’t solve the problem herself. Barbara is always there to listen with a good ear, a big heart, and a desire to make the City of Los Angeles an even better place, one caller at a time.

Congratulations to both of these exemplary employees.

What We Do Series: LADOT’s Charter Bus Program

Mike Gatto and Crime Victims United Issue Statement Regarding AB 84 Being Held by the Assembly Appropriations Committee

image002Assemblyman Mike Gatto and Crime Victims United Issue Statement Regarding AB 84 Being Held by the Assembly Appropriations Committee

SACRAMENTO – The following is a joint statement from Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Glendale) and Crime Victims United regarding the Assembly Appropriations Committee’s decision today to hold AB 84 in the suspense file:

“Last December, the California Court of Appeal quietly struck down all of California’s DNA-testing laws, which are used to solve the most serious crimes.  An appeal is pending before the California Supreme Court.  If the high court does not overturn the intermediate court’s decision (and that outcome is in doubt), hundreds of thousands of California families awaiting justice for a murdered loved one, and hundreds of thousands of rape victims, will see their chances of obtaining justice greatly diminished.

The legislative process is old-fashioned, technical, and slow, and the Legislature remains a place that rarely speaks with uniformity on any issue.  It is therefore highly doubtful that the Legislature could react to a bad Supreme Court decision with the necessary rapidity to ensure that millions of criminals do not go free without being tested to solve other crimes.

Assembly Bill 84 was a rare example of the Legislature planning ahead to anticipate a less-than-ideal outcome, and had passed with bipartisan support and the support of crime-victims groups.  Today, the Assembly Appropriations Committee and Assembly leadership took a huge gamble on the outcome of a lengthy and complicated case by holding AB 84, in effect killing it for this legislative session.  Sadly, they chose political gamesmanship over victims’ families.  Words cannot express our disappointment at this outcome, and we will do everything it takes to ensure that there is no lag in DNA testing of our most heinous criminals.”

Mike Gatto is the Chairman of the Consumer Protection and Privacy Committee, and the longest-serving current member of the State Assembly.  He represents California’s 43rd Assembly District, which includes Burbank, Glendale, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Montrose, and the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Atwater Village, East Hollywood, Franklin Hills, Hollywood Hills, Los Feliz, and Silver Lake. www.asm.ca.gov/gatto

Van Nuys Neighborhood Council To Partner With The FBI & DEA To Address Sex Trafficking

Van Nuys Neighborhood Council To Partner With The FBI & DEA To Address Sex Trafficking 

VAN NUYS, CA — The Van Nuys Neighborhood Council (VNNC) will be hosting a special “Public Safety & Sex Trafficking Summit” on Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 at the Government Center in Van Nuys.  The VNNC will partner with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to tackle this epidemic head on, and really confront one of the primary public safety issues in the San Fernando Valley.

“Time and again, this sex trafficking issue is at the forefront of residents’ minds throughout Van Nuys and the Valley.  In my six years on the council, it is the number one issue the stakeholders and people of Van Nuys want to see dealt with, so our council is taking a lead role in tackling sex trafficking in the Valley,” said Honorary Mayor of Van Nuys and Council President George Thomas.

“It will be a great privilege to work with the FBI again, and incorporating the DEA into our fight will add a different perspective to this issue.  We want to go after and punish the johns, arrest the pimps, and rehabilitate the child sex slaves out there on Sepulveda Boulevard.  I look forward to the summit this June, and I hope we can come up with a new game plan to address this terrible issue that is happening literally right around the corner in our own neighborhoods,” said Thomas.

Sex trafficking is a form of modern slavery that exists throughout the United States and globally.  Sex traffickers use violence, threats, lies, debt bondage, and other forms of coercion to force women, men and children to engage in commercial sex against their will. Under federal law, any minor under the age of 18 years induced into commercial sex is a victim of sex trafficking—regardless of whether or not the trafficker used force, fraud, or coercion.

Sex traffickers may lure their victims with the false promise of a high-paying job. Others promise a romantic relationship, where they first establish an initial period of false love and feigned affection. During this period they offer gifts, compliments, and sexual and physical intimacy, while making elaborate promises of a better life, fast money, and future luxuries. However, the trafficker eventually employs a variety of control tactics, including physical and emotional abuse, sexual assault, confiscation of identification and money, isolation from friends and family, and even renaming victims.

U.S. citizens, foreign nationals, women, men, children, and LGBTQ individuals can be victims of sex trafficking. Runaway and homeless youth, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, war or conflict, or social discrimination are frequently targeted by traffickers.

Sex trafficking exists within diverse venues including fake massage businesses, online escort services, residential brothels, in public on city streets and in truck stops, strip clubs, hotels and motels, and elsewhere.  In street-based sex trafficking, victims are often expected to earn a nightly quota, ranging from $500 to $1000 or more, which is confiscated by the pimp. Women in brothels disguised as massage businesses typically live on-site where they are coerced into providing commercial sex to 6 to 10 men a day, 7 days a week.

For more information on the summit, or if you would like to participate or co-sponsor this important forum, please email George Thomas at info@vnnc.org.  For more information on the Van Nuys Neighborhood Council, please visit www.vnnc.org.

SIDEWALKS UPDATE: City Council Motion & Public Hearing

The City Administrative Officer released a report with policy options for the City Council to consider when establishing a sidewalk repair program for the City of Los Angeles.

Attached is a motion introduced by Councilmembers Krekorian and Buscaino announcing a joint Budget and Finance and Public Works committees meeting on Monday, June 1, 3:30 pm, in Council Chambers to discuss the report. The motion also announces that there will be a series of public meetings on sidewalks held throughout the city, so that all stakeholders can provide input into the policy proposals.

QUOTE
“This is a critically important issue for all Angelenos, said Councilmember Paul Krekorian. “We have an opportunity and obligation to move beyond piecemeal legislation and create a complete program to fix our broken sidewalks. This new report won’t be the final program, but it’s a good way to begin what will be a long, very public discussion. We want to hear from all residents and stakeholders so that we can come up with the best and fairest policy possible.”

MMLA Diversity and Inclusion

MMLAMMLA Diversity and Inclusion

Make Music LA was invited to present a diverse program of music and dance by Common Wealth Partners managers of the iconic City National Plaza in Downtown, Los Angeles in honor of “World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development”.

The title is long but this day represents raising awareness of the importance of intercultural dialogue, diversity and inclusion.

City National Plaza came alive with the sound of Brazilian Samba, presented by Samba and More, the lyrical sounds and dances of India presented by the Haseen Dance Company and the joyful drums and dance from Thiane Diouf West African Griot Drum and Dance Ensemble.

MMLA Diversity and Inclusion

Los Angeles is one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world with stakeholders speaking more than 100 languages. How many languages are spoken in your neighborhood and the regions of your Neighborhood Council?

Do you have stakeholders that just might feel what you do at your Neighborhood Council does not include them?

Do you want to increase your outreach opportunities?

Make Music LA can help you do just that…music is the universal language.

Your communities hold the keys to our future. The education children receive is your business. Just because you may not know them or will never meet them, how they spend their time today will eventually effect all our tomorrows.

Sharing our diversity with each other our history, music, food and interests will help us solve major problems. It sounds simple and it is…truly that simple.

Make Music LA asks you to extend a hand, share ideas and make music in your communities with your stakeholders.

National Public Works Week Celebrates Workers Who Build Our Communities

NPWWNational Public Works Week Celebrates Workers Who Build Our Communities

In accordance with the tradition of the American Public Works Association, recognition of more than 10,000 people that provide and maintain public facilities and services throughout North America is underway this week, National Public Works Week 2015, May 17-23.

The City of Los Angeles continued the celebration on Wednesday when Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Deputy of Infrastructure Services Greg Good presented the Mayor’s proclamation acknowledging the NPWW in Los Angeles during the 10am Board of Public Works meeting.   On Tuesday in City Council, Councilmember Joe Buscaino, chair of City Council’s Public Works Committee, presented a framed proclamation to Public Works Board President Kevin James, Public Works Bureau Directors, and staff.

Using the 2015 theme, “Community Begins Here,” Councilmember Buscaino thanked the five-member Board of Public Works and the more than 5,400 employees of the Department of Public Works for their largely unsung work and service. The Department is responsible for design, construction, renovation and operation of public projects ranging from bridges to wastewater treatment plants and libraries; curbside collection and graffiti removal; and maintenance of streets, sidewalks, sewers, streetlights and street trees.

Since 1906, the Department of Public Works has led the way to advance and sustain the foundation of infrastructure facilities, resources and services that enable the City of Los Angeles to deliver social, economic and environmental benefits that serve more than four-million residents in a 468 square mile geographic area. Public Works continually focuses on solutions for the infrastructure issues and challenges that invisibly but critically manifest themselves as uninterrupted everyday conveniences.

NPWW sponsor, the American Public Works Association, values local communities and the role public works professionals play in keeping them safe and functioning smoothly.  The Association’s objective is to increase public awareness of their contributions as well as to enlighten the public about the duties, practices, and goals of public works professionals.
For more information, call the Department of Public Works Public Affairs Office at (213) 978-0333.
