The Residential Issues committee is working to develop a list of trees in the downtown area that could use trimming. Right now, the city has downtown on a 12-year tree-trimming cycle, even though this includes trees that could benefit from annual trimming. Some overgrown trees actually pose a safety hazard — blocking lights at night or interfering with fire escapes.

You can use this Google Map to help identify trees that need trimming. Once a list has been compiled, the Residential Issues committee will work to secure funding to trim the trees, which could end up costing around $100 per tree.

DLANC may not end up paying for all of the tree trimming. Russell Brown of the Historic Downtown BID said that they may be willing to pay for the trees within their borders.

Ginny-Marie Case, chair of the Residential Issues Committee and VP of Outreach for DLANC, posted her meeting notes for the meeting on December 11. Note that these are not official minutes.

Filming ad hoc update
As feared, we’ve been caught up in the holiday season. The special conditions are still being reviewed by Mr. Gilmore, and there are plans for him to meet with Councilmember Perry and CCA to review and identify potential options.

Recreation and Park Community Workshops
The City’s Recreation and Parks department recently started a citywide assessment of park services. January 30th at the DWP building, downtowners are invited to participate in a discussion on recreational programming, and potential park locations.

If you are unable to participate in the meeting, we are encouraged to participate in the online survey by visiting: http://laparks.org/assessment_blog.htm

Outreach Materials (Discussion)
We need to order more pens, and Ginny needs to finish the brochure and get it off to the printer.

Website
The website will be updated more regularly, and there will be updates to the mailing lists.

The Homeless committee listing should be updated to reflect “Affordable Housing and Homelessness” so that the AHH meetings can be listed on the website.

The yahoogroups will be subscribed to the DLANC.com mailing lists, but over the next couple of months, we will need to encourage our stakeholders to register on the website.

Stakeholders need to register in order to participate in elections, and other DLANC actions.

The pictures and board member listing needs to be updated on the website. Alias email addresses for boardmembers will need to be developed as well. There are a couple of options:

Firstname@dlanc.com
f.last@dlanc.com
Firstname.lastname@dlanc.com
Firstname.l@dlanc.com

Which would you prefer? We’ll post a poll to make a decision.

The last thing we talked about was Targeted Outreach.
It’s important to invite people to community events (Like the 1/30 meeting)
Additionally – we should look ot ways to reach out to new residents
Invite bloggers to cover committee meetings (Particularly the Planning and Land Use)
Look to bring in more speakers and have more presentations at committee meetings.

The December meeting of the Residential Issues and Outreach Committees (combined because they share a common chair) will be next Tuesday, December 11, at Red Dot Gallery & Bistro at 500 S. Spring (enter through Weeneez). Special items on the agenda include:

  • Filming ad hoc update
  • Recreation and Park Community Workshops
  • Outreach Materials (Discussion)
