i.) CD4 – left prior to report
ii.) CD5 – no one present
iii.) Other

b.) Community Events
President Mann attended the Hollywood area NC Town hall meeting last Thursday. Wayne was there regard to traffic, Valerie and Patricia and Barbra were also present. City Council members Garcetti and LaBonge addressed traffic, parking, and planning construction & development. President Mann spoke about the concerns of HHWNC briefly, followed by the other loacal (central) area and NC president in attendance. The group broke into working groups and numbers of public and various reps were there to talk. We were not involved in the planning stages of this meeting nor did we have any financial participation. Estimate of people was 100-150 people, and all of the breakout sessions were full. It was publicized rather late with some confusion. Fliers were distributed rather late to the board. The original flier did not have an address on it. Question to the board members is if we should do mass distributions late like that, we have 2,500 stakeholders, only 2000 have emails, and some people get upset about getting emails.

c.) Executive Committee Meeting Update:
Clarification statement, all of the committees are able to propose items and bring projects to the board for considerations, open to all committee members. This is what we are supposed to be doing in your committees, every committee brings issues to the board and requesting funds have to use the tools you have to get people to come. People have to do the job at the committee level in order for it to be successful and have a result that is plausible. It is incumbent as committee managers to build up the community base. Had a meeting previous to general meeting, minutes will be posted on the website.

5. Vice President’s Report
(a) Orrin explained how the City Planning Department’s early notification system has been improved. In addition to the Planning Dept. sending those early notification reports to each board member, the Planning Dept. now makes the reports available to the public on the department’s website, which is htt://zimas.lacity.org. Also, the Planning Department requires many applicants to provide an additional copy of their applications, which the department sends to the neighborhood council for where the project is located. Those copies come to our HHWNC mail box. I read those applications, and send short summaries to the relevant board members so that they can be informed and inform other stakeholders about the proposed projects. It’s a “Paul Revere” type function/role.

6. Treasurer’s Report
(a) Update

7. Ad Hoc Committee Report for By laws
(a) Michael and Orrin explained how the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment’s role supervising neighborhood councils’ elections is being shifted to the City Clerk’s office, and that the City Clerk will start supervising neighborhood councils’ elections in early, 2010. Our bylaws need to be updated for this change and other issues. The ad hoc committee will hold a public meeting to hear comments about the open issues, which were outlined in a handout included in the package for this meeting. The committee anticipated that the meeting would be held in April, and that a new draft might be brought back to the board by May.

8. Committee Reports
a.) ISSUE COMMITTEES
i.) Community Development and Outreach
aa.) MOTION: HHWNC Board to support the 2008 Splash Bash event to include community outreach to increase stakeholders. A budget allocation not to exceed $22,500.00 is requested.
1. Very lively discussion among most all board members regarding the Splash Bash event proposal for this summer. Some board members were in support of the event and some opposed. Approximately 2000 new stakeholders signed up for HHWNC via the Splash Bash events over the past two years. Outreach Chair, Terry Migliaccio reported that.

Hollywood Hills council board is asked to; budget not to exceed $22,500.00 is not requested. HHWNC has done the event 2 years in a row, we have gotten about 1,000 new stakeholders per event, and the event had a huge impact and increased our numbers. The number one mandate is to increase stakeholders; now that we have gotten them we haven’t done anything with them. An issue has been budget in the past, I proposed a number that is about$8,000.00 less than we spent last year. I work in Hollywood and Highland, we are happy to do the event because it is part of our community. Looking to other contributors, they are very glad to participate. The fact that we get so many stakeholders out of this is reason that we should do this event again, therefore I have put it in motion. If other neighborhood councils get involved the price would go down. Will look into other councils to get involved with Splash Bash.

The ensuing discussion involved postponing until 2009 as was discussed after the event was approved for 2007 along with a variety of opinions in favor and opposed.

2. Original vote – 8 to 8 with one abstention – President Mann voted to beak the tie in favor: Vote- 9 in favor, 8 oppose, 1 abstention – Motion passes
bb. MOTION: HHWNC Board supports to improve the visual and usability of the HHWNC website, an allocation of not to exceed $20,000.00 is requested to update the website to include a link from the home page to a section for each Area and Issue Chair to display their events, tips, announcements, etc. The above funds will be used towards web design costs and then outreach to promote the site.
1. Amendments to motion:
a.)Cost from $20,000.00 to $11,600.00
b.) Elimination of “then outreach to promote the site”

2 .Outreach Chair Terry Migliaccio: What I want to do is create a website where we can have all the events going on in our community. Do a better home page that is more visual and takes into account typical Hollywood. Get links to a page, a map, each chair would have a page and issues that they have in their area. Have tips on EMS, each chair is responsible for loading information for their stakeholders, Important if everyone contributes and puts in their part. Once we get the web to where we feel that it’s functional, then we have to get the word out, splash bash would be a good place to launch the site and get feedback. Reinvest in logo and get in a new logo, if you feel the logo needs to be done then we can do that. Have a web design committee, would love that. It is part of the committee meeting. If there is something new that comes up I will send it to the board members that have expressed interest. If there was an outsider that designed the logo, it would bring the cost down $1,500.00.
a.) Look into designers for the logo

3. Steven the webmaster attended the meeting with the following input:
a.) The layout is not relevant anymore, it doesn’t represent what we are about, coming up with a whole new look and feel. Unlike what we have now, we need the ability to reach out to the community, have the ability to post articles on each and every homepage , reach out to the community and provide that information. The logo that is in the bylaws did not fit, so we amended it, it’s all about branding, we got a brand here that we need to promote, if we are going to do a logo change, now is the time to do it. I am very much in favor of a new logo. Put a focus of current events, feature items. Traffic information is available on the bottom of the page. It will tell you by the hour and which pages. Logo is part of the cost. Promoting or displaying public comments could be a nightmare, would have to monitor the comment, people don’t use it and it’s advertised negatively. A place where people can post comments and a place where people can see it. Have it accessible on the Home page.
4. Vote- unanimous in favor of motion
ii.) Emergency Services, Police & Fire
aa.) Valorie Keegan, Chair: Thank you for Anastasia for an alert, we have a real problem. The EMS committee, will be out at 1820 Las Palmas senior center, open house to inform on March 26. Coming out to speak and work with us Keith Garcia, I have already submitted questions: what radio station are you supposed to tune to. We are really far behind in this area. Patricia in area 2, Daniel in area 1, and Andy area 3, john area 9. These areas are huge, so we need people covered on all the ends. Also looking into having a basic CPR class in may, looking into it, host, hold, or have this. The meeting is start time 6 pm in the labara march 26 every person is responsible for them.

iii.) Environment, Beautification, & Aesthetics
aa.) MOTION: HHWNC Tabled to next meeting

iv.) Other Issue Committees
aa.) Reports by Committee Chairs in attendance: None

b.) AREA COMMITTEES
i.) Area 3/ Business/ House Committees
aa.) The Board has requested to support a motion recommending that the City Council make no amendment to the City Code limiting the creation of Permit-Only parking districts based on proximity to Metro Stations or streets served by Rapid lines.
1. They would bar the permit of parking districts from metro stations or streets served by rapid bus lines. My committee thought it would be very unfair to limit the amount of parking that they still need to be able to have permit parking available. This ordinance if put through would deny parking. But a proposal like this makes it so difficult for those who have to cars to be able to have parking, though we should use public transportation more. The proposal is being floated around; it is being strongly recommended by transportation. Want to be able to have parking, beating the pavement in order to have parking. A lot of them do not have garage parking. Need permit parking to protect themselves from businesses and force the business’ to provide parking. Permit parking districts need to be a minimum of 6 blocks in seize, may be depriving people outside of being able to park. I am sending a letter to Dunn.
2. Motion- 13 in favor, 4 oppose- Motion passes
3. Paul is going to write Peggy regarding the matter.
bb.) Item tabled for next meeting

ii.) Area 9
aa.) Report Update
1. There is a lot going on in area 9 had over 65 people at our meeting Feb. 19. Bought city engineers, laurel canyon south of Mulholland, community came together and fought that, limiting 3 or 4 development project in mull Holland design corridor to keep the neighborhood intact. Many of it is a fight against a project fuller drive.
bb.) The Board is requested to take a position by writing and recommending that the Los Angeles City Attorney examine emails and other communications between Gregg Vandergriff, P.E.- Civil Engineer, B-Permit Manager, Department of Public Works, Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, and Bulwer Drive LLC./ Donald Duckworth, its managing agent, to determine if any Los Angeles City laws or rules were violated in connection with the proposed Bulwer Drive roadway and whether it would be paved with a dust cap pending Bulwer Drive LLC’s preparation of an environmental impact report.

(on agenda) this passed 49/4, to abstentions, 1 negative, this is the only time area 9 has brought a motion since I have been a part of it. Excusing himself because his personal connection.
2. Fred, John’s neighbor, discussed how he has been involved with the development-
neighborhood has come together and spent a lot of time to do a report which unanimously has adopted it, and 2nd time in the state there has been an environmental impact report done. Bureau of engineering has jurisdiction over new roadways. The whole thing has been very shady. 11 days after they were ordered to do an environmental report, they wanted to skirt the EIR and pave over the road, make it more trapped for the two homes that were there. Here to appeal to all of you to get the votes. We are asking for an investigation of the relationship of the city employer and the contractor.
3. Vote unanimous

Condition 13; have inside music, no live entertainment, no bar. Police department has requested that any music section 116.1 of the Los Angeles municipal pole. The music will come from the ceiling; the sound is away from where people live. Parking lot will hold over 100 cars. Do have valet parking, in negations with other valets, have Patrons Park in parking lot and have employees in paved parking lot. Will have valet at opening because we want control of the parking and noise. The big concern was the alcohol license and control and being able to stop and midnight and be open afterwards.

9. Public Comments-
Ryan, Treasurer from Neighborhood Council. 4a. Community Report: Apologize for any late involvement, because I am the treasurer, a lot gets put on his plate because he has to spend the money. The first coalition event to try to get all Hollywood neighborhoods involved, it was a learning process. Anastasia will get an email with information. Had great turnout. Found it to be successful.

Sue lives in Sunset square. Unaware that Splash Bash was an outreach program, perhaps there are ways that it can be implemented better. Surprised that it took Anastasia’s speech to bring other people with me to meetings. During splash bash, I didn’t hear any announcements; it wasn’t as clearly articulated as it was tonight. I have some suggestions; I can send them to Anastasia. I come to meetings when I have a concern, and I have no reason to sign up for a committee. I think that’s hot stakeholders react to this, I think people don’t have that initiative. Anastasia I will write you personally.

Ryan- Every other council has public comment at the beginning. Talking about Splash Bash, I contacted my president and went through the minutes to I could get more information. When talking about committees, I would love to go to your bylaw meetings I am a stakeholder, and would love to contribute. We spent 75000 and only got 100 stake holders. At that rate, we spent more than 75 per stakeholder. I know that our participation was our fault; the person who was to take the lead dropped the ball and is no longer on the board. I know that this Hollywood coalition may just help you with outreach to get participants to get to come to the event. It would be a good opportunity to involve all Hollywood neighborhood councils involved. You have 45000 potential stakeholders, we only have 22000. All boards have made tremendous progress in the past two years. Spent over 17000 on elections, I can’t speak for the board, as your neighbor, that we own the fact that the biggest reason for our lack of success is ours.

Ryan – Bought, Hollywood coalition.com, would like to get all the councils involved, will link to the councils.

Allison, read by Anastasia- why you need a liquor license if you stop serving at midnight and are open until 4 am, as well as has limited parking.

Ryan-Looking to do another town hall among the Hollywood coalition, based on Saturday may 31, will email them to Anastasia, the town hall, renters, have a huge renters stakeholder shift, doing a forum on prop 98 being marked as eminent domain but is phasing out as rent control, the other 5 have made commitments to get financial and volunteers. From 11 am serve brunch, have Larry gross from cues, have rep from la housing department, purely informative, not taking a position on prop 98, have something educate renters on their rights, no breakout sessions. The big issue is finances, involved late in the town hall last week, 4 of the 6 have put up finances. Coming up to you to assist in financial, want to do banners. If you are going to organize the bylaw meeting, you can organize this particular item for April for approval for funds. Tuesday June 3 is the actual vote, going to get media coverage behind it. Our neighborhood council has committed $3000, don’t have a venue picked yet, whatever you feel you need to get your stakeholders, may have it at the Music box theatre on Hollywood blvd because we get it for free. The most important thing we need is volunteers for this event. [email protected], if interested in getting involved, please contact, would love to have help.
