Extend Community Plan timeline

Passage deadline: November 2018
Passed by
  • Brentwood Community Council
  • Mar Vista Community Council
  • Pacific Palisades Community Council
  • Westside Neighborhood Council
  • Westwood Community Council

Motion

The _____ Council finds the Community Plans Update Outreach Plan timeline of 3 years to be ambitious (consider that the West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert and Granada Hills Plans required 7 years, and the Expo Station Neighborhood Transit Plan required 4.5 years), potentially limiting adequate public input and feedback.

Therefore, we request that the Planning Department be funded to extend the timeline if and as needed to accommodate achievement-anchored benchmarks.

NC Systems Reform

Passage deadline: November 2018
Passed by
  • Brentwood Community Council
  • South Robertson Neighborhoods Council (modified version)

Motion

Refers to City Council file 18-0467

The _________ Council recommends that the Neighborhood Council reforms proposed by Councilmember Ryu (CF-18-0467) include the following:

  1. That the City Administrative Code be amended to revise the current definition of Neighborhood Council stakeholders (including removing the “community impact stakeholders”) as follows:
    “Stakeholders shall be defined as those who live, work, or own real property within the Neighborhood Council boundaries. With the approval of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, Neighborhood Councils may—and are encouraged to—expand this definition within their bylaws to include other defined groups of stakeholders.”
  2. That in the interest of ensuring that local constituencies represented by Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils are heard, City Administrative Code (Section 22.819) be amended to require that seating be reserved at City departmental hearings, commission meetings, and Council meetings for members of Neighborhood and Community Councils.
  3. That provision be made for qualified Community Councils to be officially recognized as independent City community advisory bodies, and afforded the same courtesies, notice, and access provided to Neighborhood Councils.
