Westside Town Hall Budget Meeting - Engaging, Informative, and Inspiring

Posted by Adrienne Luce on February 27, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

More than 200 people packed the Mar Vista Community Center last night for Mayor Garcetti's Budget Town Hall meeting. Daniel Tamm who represents Mayor Garcetti on the Westside (and was the Regional Field Director for Obama) introduced Deputy Mayor Rick Cole (who happens to be the former Mayor of Pasadena, and former City Manager of Ventura and Azusa) who gave a very informative presentation on the City of LA budget. Rick started out by saying, that there are two words to keep in mind when thinking about the City of LA budget:

1. The news is sobering
2. Solutions must be collaborative

Even though the State of CA may have surpluses and seems to have recovered, the City of LA is still facing a shortfall and is very much in recovery mode. 
The $242 million shortfall actually represents only about 5% of the total City of LA budget.
He explained that the two biggest sources of city revenue are sales tax and property tax. Property taxes do not rise significantly and internet sales have impacted retail on the local level. 


Two additional challenges that the City faces are:

1. Pension costs - The City will be paying to restore lost pension money during the Great Recession over the next 30 years

2. Salaries are going up this December after a 3 yr. freeze on raises for city workers



Another challenge is that the city has already made cuts so there is not a lot of fat left to trim. For example the city has already have reduced its…

Top Sawtelle Restaurants According to the Los Angeles Times

Posted by Orli Belman on January 9, 2014 at 12:03pm 0 Comments

We've been spending a lot of time on Sawtelle Blvd recently. It's walking distance, buzzing at night and emerging as one of LA's best dining streets. I still have yet to get a table at the no-take out Tsujita or the Tsujita Annex. And judging by where they rank on this Los Angeles Times list, it will probably be even more difficult.

Sawtelle question of the day...Brian's Shave Ice or Blockheads?

Residents Near Expo Line are Driving Less and Exercising More

Posted by Orli Belman on December 16, 2013 at 10:53am 0 Comments

Since the Expo Line opened, people who live within a half mile of a station are driving 10 - 12  fewer miles each day, according to a new USC study looking at before and after impacts of the light rail line. 

Among the report’s findings:

• Residents living near Expo Line stations produced about 30 percent less carbon emissions from their vehicles after the opening of the rail line than did residents living farther from the stations.

• Those living near the Expo Line stations who were the least physically active before the line’s opening increased their moderate or vigorous physical activity by 8 to 10 minutes per day, as compared to those living farther away.

You can read the full report here.

The study was also covered in the Los Angeles Times.

Noodles Anyone? Check out these West LA Ramen Recommendations

Posted by Orli Belman on September 26, 2013 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I don't usually think of car companies for food reviews but General Motors is getting into the content creation craze and has put together this list of West Los Angeles ramen restaurants that has me wanting some warm noodles on this relatively cool fall day. I'm at work so I don't have a Pho-to (get it? Pho!) of any noodles to add but if anyone is in the area, please snap and pic from your favorite Rancho Park, Westwood, or Sawtelle area place and post it here. Hopefully, we'll soon have an album of oodles of neighborhood noodles.

With Expo Line light rail legal issues resolved, attention turns to Expo Line Bike Lanes

Posted by Rancho Park Online on August 25, 2013 at 11:00pm 5 Comments

Though the Expo Line lawsuits seem to have come to an end, bicycle advocates are concerned about bike trails in Cheviot Hills, reports LAStreetsblog.org publisher Damien Newton.

Thought LADOT and federal authorities and "Northvale 7" reached a settlement last year, cyclists are worried about access to the path.

The Westside Neighborhood Council and Council District 5, currently represented by Paul Koretz, will be provided with a presentation and a chance to weigh in on whether or not there should be an entrance to the bike path at Northvale and Dunleer Drive and whether or not the access should be 24 hours.

"The Westside Neighborhood Council isn’t exactly known for it’s support for transportation options," Damien stated. He noted that one member appeared on radio railing against Westwood bike lanes and highlighted Rancho Park Online  member …

California Supreme Court Denies Neighbor's For Smart Rail's Expo Line Petition

Posted by Orli Belman on August 5, 2013 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

This just in...

The California Supreme Court says Expo Line Phase Two construction can proceed without any further study. The court affirmed the appeals court's Expo Line decision and denied Neighbors for Smart Rail's petition to have the line's environmental impacts restudied.

You can read the ruling here.

The majority of the court actually agreed with NFSR's first claim that the EIR failed to disclose the effects the project will have on existing environmental conditions. However, the court deemed this non-prejudicial to the case.

In a statement on their website, Neighbors for Smart Rail says their attorneys are are reviewing this unique opinion to understand what it means and does not mean.

Streetsblog LA covered the breaking news, with some history on this case, and quoted Expo Construction Authority CEO Rick Thorpe.

“We are gratified that the California Supreme Court has affirmed the lower court rulings," he said.…
