Motion

Refers to City Council file 21-0329-S5

____ NC/CC, a member of the Westside Regional Alliance of Councils (WRAC), opposes the motion in CF 21-0329-S5, which makes implementation of LAMC Sec. 41.18 unnecessarily and unreasonably complicated and needlessly involves county agencies in city policy.  We agree with the protection of sensitive use sites and deem this Municipal Code section to be a necessary tool for combatting the proliferation of homelessness and protecting public health and safety citywide.*  ____ NC/CC  therefore strongly supports LAMC Sec. 41.18, which has been effectively implemented in Council District 11 and other areas of Los Angeles to protect public health and safety and preserve the use of our public spaces for all constituents.  *According to the Chief Legislative Analyst, “LAPD believes that LAMC Sec. 41.18 and its subsections have an overwhelmingly positive impact on public safety’” (5/31/24 CLA Report in related CF 21-0329-S4).
