Empowerment Congress West Area Neighborhood Development Council [ECWANDC]


10 Sept 2k11

Attending the regularly scheduled Neighborhood Council meeting I discovered we have a lot of work to do. Be that as it may, an opportunity does exist for the legacy of our community to step-up our game and lean forward n2 the 21st Century.


**The vacancies that were open on the Board for Area Rep and At Large Representative were filled by unanimous consent. The vacancies for Treasurer and Planning & Land Use were not filled.


** Council's FY2011-12  Budget Proposal was accepted.


**Updates for The Crenshaw/Lax 'Light-Rail' line were discussed. Making clear that when the MTA Board meets on the 22nd of Sept they will be "voting" to "approve" a plan NOT supported by The Crenshaw Subway Coalition [CSC]. http://crenshawsubway.org/2011/09/mtas-final-document/. Please lend your support to have our Leimert Park Villiage Station returned to the Project Plan! OUR LEGACY IS AT STAKE. Thank you-_-*


**A motion presented by Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Krekorian, 2nd District, was mentioned and decided upon quickly to be addressed at next regular TownHall meeting. The motion...  a plan for the implementation of a training program for Neighborhood Council board members that covers the following topics: 1. Ethics and Legal Issues; 2. Workplace violence and Sexual Harassment; 3. Funding Program; 4. City Government Basics; 5. Parliamentary Process; and 6. Counity Leadership


**Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Update from Jason Lombard, BHCP Community Outreach Director. Tyler's "Free" Film Festival at The Rave; Post & Beam scheduled to open on Sept 30 2011; Staples on slate to open in November of this year. Concert Series is in full swing, with SheilaE @ 7pm on the 21st of this month.


So Neighbors, there we have it. As you can see there is much work before us. I encourage you to pay-forward the skills and talents you have in the service of our Children and the honor of our Ancestors-_-* Together we should have the highest standard and quality of life that provides living-wage jobs and the excellence in education our Children deserve.


I warmly thank you for your earnest consideration. Next TownHall will meet: Spt 19, 2011 * Mon 6:30p - 8p at DWP Community Room, 4030 Crenshaw Blvd. [behind KrispyKreams]...


Peace Always BWithYou,

Thanks for the update!  I was sad to see so many vacancies on the ECWANDC board.  These meetings are a fascinating method of learning what's going on in the city and our locale.  I wish more people attended them.
