Councilman Jose Huizar celebrates a "Mere Parklet" while supporting a pending "Arbor Massacre at Hazard Park"

Time to give props to another Princeton Graduate's "Act of Political Hypocrisy".
From the Spin Office of (almost forgot to say Princeton Graduate) CD 14 City Councilman Jose Huizar.
Councilmember José Huizar and Living Streets LA are excited to present the brand new "Huntington Drive Improvement Vision and Action Plan.” Join us to celebrate its completion on Saturday, September 29 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in front of Food 4 Less, the site of our recently approved Street Plaza. Saturday's celebration will highlight many of the other improvement ideas the El Sereno community came up with for Huntington Drive through  numerous workshops, which resulted in the Huntington Drive Improvement & Action Plan booklet, with limited copies being distributed at Saturday's event. 
This is part of a larger effort that will bring four parklet projects all in Council District 14 – which will represent the City of Los Angeles’ first parklets and lead to future pedestrian projects throughout the City where parking spaces can be turned into public plazas and other uses.

MEANWHILE!! An Arbor Massacre is Pending at Hazard Park 
Councilman Jose Huizar gained City Council to FAST TRACK support for the following ......
PLANNING AND LAND USE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE REPORT relative to a review of the existing street standards involving street dedications, street improvements, street lights, and street trees for the community surrounding the University of Southern (USC) California Health Sciences Campus, including Los Angeles County USC Medical Center. Recommendations for Council action, as initiated by Motion (Huizar - Reyes): 1. AUTHORIZE the processing of B-permits. 2. INSTRUCT the Planning Department, Los Angeles Department of Transportation, Department of Recreation and Parks (to give up park land), and the Bureaus of Engineering, Street Services, and Street Lighting to report back to the Planning and Land Use Management Committee on December 4, 2012 with a status report regarding the review of existing street standards involving street dedications (demolish park handball courts), street improvements (widen Soto Street by taking park land), street lights (show USC employees the way to work), and street trees (killing park trees) for the community surrounding the USC California Health Sciences Campus, including Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, for conditions that are no longer relevant within the proposed street beautification project. Fiscal Impact Statement: Neither the City Administrative Officer nor the Chief Legislative Analyst has completed a financial analysis on this report. Community Impact Statement: None submitted. (** Its hard to submit an impact report with three days notice Councilman Huizar)
These "park trees" don't look like street trees. City Council will meet on Tuesday to vote on Councilman Huizar's "Arbor Massacre".
.......... and for USC Lobbyist and former Mayor Sam awardee David Galaviz?
He can laugh now knowing that he lied to Northeast Trees and the Greater Hazard Park Community, about USC not taking any of Hazard Park.
Your thoughts ..............
Scott Johnson in CD 14
