Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council to hold presentation on Huizar/ Reyes Hillside Ordinance

This is the new home of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council.

Thanks to the antics of past LHNC President David Galaviz and current Vice-President Vera Padilla, the LHNC was force to find a new meeting location.

Meetings take place on the first and third Thursdays of the month in the meeting room located in the basement on the right side of the Lincoln Heights Library, pictured above.

This Thusday, October 2, 2008, the LHNC will have a presentation on the hillside ICO, a plan by Councilman Ed Reyes and Jose Huizar to place new restrictions on developing hillside lots in Northeast LA.

At a recent meeting of the LA 32 Neighborhood Council in El Sereno, hundreds turned out, mostly to state their opposition.

One can see LHNC needing more than basement space on Thursday..............

37,000 citations have been issued and 13,000 cars towed since the inception of the TIGER TEAM enforcement. The cost for each citation is $140.00 which has generated over $5 million dollars. This does not include a towing fee that the city will obtain. How much of this money is being deposited into the General fund?

On September 30 Mayor Villaraigosa announced that he will add 13 officers to the TIGER TEAM for additional enforcement during rush hours in West LA, San Pedro, and Valley, but no mention of East LA.

AT least Lincoln Heights has meetings opened to the public. In Boyle Heights the new board (all Huizar lap dogs and kiss butts) are having secret meetings not telling the community. They are in violation of Brown Act because the executive board is voting on motions not sent to the general board. Most of the items approved on the budget are giving money to Huizar for his events. Why is Neighborhood Council money being given to the council members when they already have their own money???

The "hundreds" that opposed this new Hillside Ordinance is no other than PROH-LA. Founded by NFN Bradley, Tony Butka, and D. Paula Bagasau. Names sound familiar? http://www.glassellparknc.com/ Proh-LA did the same thing when Home Depot did when the Fletcher Square CDO was being approved. Home Depot bused in "community members" never seen before fed them lies, fed them a meal, and they got orange DOTs.

Proh-LA is doing the same thing, telling these hillside property owners lies that the city will not allow them to build their house and their property rights will be taken away.

Proh-LA is a lobbyist group made up of developers, real estate brokers, construction companies, claiming they are "concerned stakeholders"

The term, "East L.A.", generally refers to the unincorporated County area and CD-14 is your easternmost section of the city, none of it extending beyond the 710 freeway.

The "Eastside" of the city is a label often used for Boyle Heights, or the "Northeast L.A." label for Lincolh Heights, El Sereno and parts north, up to Eagle Rock."

There may be no actual EXCLUSION of the eastside from your Tiger Team action and revenue collection, although I wonder about the degree street traffic obstruction in the eastside areas mentioned compared to the same for the other parts of the city. Maybe it's less, maybe not.

But this is all entirely off the thread, so let's return to it. Ed Reyes, Jose Huizar and Jack Weiss compose the City Planning and Land Use Management Committee, from PDF list of all council members, assignments and contact numbers: http://cityclerk.lacity.org/cps/pdf/clkasgn.pdf

The LHNC and its alignment with Ed Reyes under the NC's partial change in members and the response to the ongoing anti-resident actions, including the fiscal trend of increases in fees/taxes, of the City Council, should be interesting. I wonder how the CMs on the committee will spin this because you know that more is happening than what these particular council members will reveal in order to achieve their goals.

When I see Huizar and Reyes together on something, you bet I wonder what's up for the city.

Let's see if the LH Library meeting site impacts attendance on the Hillside ordinance issue. NC's however, are only advisory, and past oppostion to the phone tax and term extensions were exercises in futility as far as the voters and the Council were involved.

Huizar-boosters complained yesterday on the Vernon powerplant matter that whatever Huizar does he gets criticized. That's right. He sided up too closely with Villaraigosa and was endorsed by him, so is it any wonder? Huizar's LAUSD track record is another series of wheel-spinning, money-burning exercises he led, with an achievement of his being the "A-G" college track for all students, complete with the failings that any one-size-fits-all plan brings.

So far, he's come up with so much b.s. "action" moves as CM, in the mayor's style, that we want to be careful of what REALLY is being done LESS openly. And now I'VE gone off the thread.

PHOH-LA is a group of aggressive, in-your-face a--holes. There is a group of real estate developers who want to be free to build oversized houses for the luxury market in Northeast and East Side Los Angeles. The new set of zoning regulations in no way prevent reasonable development of anyone's property. However, PROH-LA keeps whipping vacant lot owners into a frenzy using false claims about the impact of the regulations.

Anyone who supports their programs are slandered by PROH-LA as racially intolerant and all sorts of other silly claims.

The Councilmembers need to stand up to these bullies and enact these common sense protections for the community.
