      A. Request for support by the LA World Airport regarding the following:
The External Affairs Division of Los Angeles World Airports is in the midst of a public awareness campaign concerning their ongoing $14 billion modernization of Los Angeles International Airport, in particular their proposed Landside Access Modernization Program or LAMP for short.  It will consist of a 6 million square foot consolidated rental car facility, two 3 million square foot transit hubs and a 2.25 mile automated people mover connecting these facilities and the Expo/LAX Light Rail 96th Street station to the airport.  By creating a new front door for LAX they are hoping to reduce the traffic in Central Terminal Area, improve the passenger’s customer experience and maintain LAX at the international gateway for the West Coast (see links below for the attachments).
               Motion: HUNC to support the LAMP as it will: 1. Relieve traffic congestion; 2. Improve the LAX passenger experience; and 3. Make LAX a world class airport.

10. Neighborhood Council Resolution on Timing of the Neighborhood Council 2020 Elections
The Neighborhood Council elections for 2020 are currently set to be conducted from March through June.  Because the timing of the 2020 Neighborhood Council elections will conflict with the municipal elections transferring to the Los Angeles County Clerk, the Office of the City Clerk will not be able to administer the Neighborhood Council elections simultaneously.  This conflict requires shifting the Neighborhood Council 2020 elections to odd number years.   The choices are:
1. Conduct 2018 Neighborhood Council elections as scheduled. Board members elected would have 3 year terms. For boards with staggered terms, this would also require the term extension of board seats ending in 2020 by 1 year for 2021 elections at which time the entire board would be up and would have to restagger with 2 and 4 year terms. Other changes:  Subdivision applications would be open again at its current scheduled October 1, 2018 and would have to go through a selection process for its permanent board. There would be another application round opening on October 1, 2020.
2. Extend current board terms up in 2018 by 1 year and conduct elections in 2019. For boards with staggered terms, this would also require their terms to be  extended in 2020 by 1 year for 2021 elections OR shortened by 1 year to 2019 at which time the entire board would be up and would have to restagger with 2 and 4 year terms. Other changes:  The bylaw amendment deadline would be extended from May 1, 2017 to at least April 1, 2018.  Subdivision applications would be reopened on October 1, 2017 instead of October 1, 2018.
3.Conduct 2018 Neighborhood Council elections as scheduled and then conduct elections again in 2019 with all board members up for election at which time the entire board would be up and would have to restagger with 2 and 4 year terms. Board members elected in 2018 would have 1 year terms and board members with staggered terms could either be  extended in 2020 by 1 year for 2021 elections OR  shortened by 1 year to 2019. Other changes: No election related bylaw amendments or subdivision applications from May 1, 2017 to May 1, 2020.
Recommendation and motion to approve Option 2 as:  <Extend current board terms up in 2018 by 1 year and conduct elections in 2019. For boards with staggered staggered terms, this would also require their terms to be extended in 2020 by 1 year for 2021 elections.  The bylaw amendment deadline would be extended from May 1, 2017 to at least April 1, 2018.  Subdivision applications would be reopened on October 1, 2017 instead of October2018.>

April 1, 2016

So Tom, George, and I carpooled to the Treasurer's training yesterday.  And we got to talking about driving participation, motivation, all those good things.  I reflected on how hard we all have tried to not model ourselves on a mini City Council, and I remembered Carol Baker Tharp. Those were her words!  She's the reason that I work as hard as I do with our NC.  Erik, Robert A, and Susan P will remember her.  

She was the 3rd General Manager of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, following Lisa Sarno.  Appointed by Mayor Villaraigosa, she just plain inspired all of us.  She first came to speak to us in 2003.  Watch the videos and tell me that you don't wish that she hadn't died so young and so soon, only 11 months in office.  I can only think of what might have been had she been around to implement her vision.  But maybe, after watching this, you'll feel re-inspired too.

And it's pretty funny, I remember those long tables of food like it was yesterday!

Newsletter May 2007
President’s Message, By Susan Swan

Why get involved? We are asked that many times, and sometimes we even question that ourselves. It is indeed easier to not do something and let others make those tough decisions. But at some point, it becomes personal.

To quote the late Congressmen Tip O'Neill, "All politics is local." On July 21st, 2003, Carol Baker Tharp spoke to the HUNC board about volunteerism; “ people get involved initially because of a local issue that affected them personally. Then, the longer they stayed involved the more they began to see the connections between their own self-interests and the interests of the community.” (HUNC minutes, July 2003).

Her words, inspirational! We left feeling renewed and our commitment to the Neighborhood Council effort, positively recharged. We are even more thrilled because she is now the new General Manager of DONE*.

I’m certain that there is something that ‘gets’ you in your community, something that makes no sense, something that you wish ‘someone’ would do something about sometime! Well, that someone is you, and that sometime is NOW. Get involved!

We are planning several Town Halls this year that will address some of the most common concerns of our community, but maybe not your pet project or your pet peeve. The only way that you can ensure that you live in a vibrant, informed community, is to make it so. Email me with your thoughts. We are always there, and we are always listening. 

*Tragically, Carol Baker Tharp passed away on Nov 5, 2007.
