  6. Executive Committee (5 minutes)
    1. Report by the President
  7. PLUM Committee
    1. Report by Committee Chair
    2. Discussion and possible motion to regarding neighborhood oil drilling within LA communities and health and human safety buffer zones for oil drilling sites within the city. PLUM motion approved unanimously: All residents workers, students and visitors to Los Angeles are entitled to and have the right to a safe and healthy environment. To the extent that the comprehensive analysis called for in the report associated with Council File 17-0447 finds that adverse health and environmental impacts are associated within a to-be-determined distance from petroleum and gas wells, then we endorse imposition of a setback/buffer from such wells that is necessary to mitigate those impacts. It has been suggested in the paper titled “Existing scientific literature on setback distances from oil and gas development sites” that a 2,500 foot minimum setback be the requirement. Any recommendations emerging from this analysis should be subject to review by the public and affected owners before any such imposition is created. If measures other than a setback can reasonably be implemented that would result in the same safety and health benefits, they should be considered. (5 minutes)
    3. Discussion and possible motion to regarding CIS on Council File 19-0046 (Developer Contribution Restrictions. PLUM Motion approved unanimously to support a CIS on Council File 19-0046 (Developer Contribution Restrictions – Ryu, Krekorian, Koretz, Martinez, Bonin and Buscaino) as follows: Hollywood United Neighborhood Council strongly SUPPORTS Council File 19-0046 to reform the Los Angeles City campaign finance system in order to reduce the influence of developer interests at City Hall and urges the Los Angeles City Council to schedule this item and approve it as soon as possible. Reform is necessary as developers have a clear financial interest in influencing City Hall to generate land use decisions that will benefit their projects. In 2011 the City approved Measure H, which limited campaign donations from contractors doing business or bidding to do business with the City due to the clear financial conflict of interest. A similar concern exists with real estate developments where discretionary action required by the City is part of the planning process and incentivizes developers to donate to political campaigns in the hope of partial treatment. Whether influence gained is merely perceived or real, the citizens of Los Angeles, like with Measure H, have a clear “anticorruption and anticircumvention interest” in prohibiting this activity. This ordinance has been upheld for similar bans by the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Ninth District. (5 minutes)
