20. MOTION: That the HHWNC Board submit a comment on the Draft Griffith Park Master Plan requesting that additional off-leash dog walking areas be identified in the Griffith Park Master Plan.

2. PRESIDENTS COMMENTS
Vince and Jen are recording the meeting. Theresa said she would be late. Bylaws were posted on 5/23 at 5 locations and were also mailed. June 23 there is a meeting at Yucca Center for stakeholders so each board member please work on getting the word out. Dan gave background and history of council status and overview of council and why committees were formed but have not been successful, so a change is needed. Dan also informed the Board the HHWNC’s reputation is not what it use to be with City Council.

3. APPROVAL OF MARCH & MAY MINUTES
MOTION by Bob to table both minutes
SECOND: Vince

(a) Anthony wanted to know why and Bob said Vince wanted to table the minutes. Vince wants Jen to make some more changes in the March minutes, like removing Steve Kifer’s name from the absent list since he formally resigned months ago. Also, Vince wanted to know the difference between absent and excused absence. Vince asked Jen to change the minutes to read that he made a special appearance at the March meeting. Vince also wanted to change the March minutes to read that Theresa was appointed to ad hoc Election Committee, not the Election Committee. Dan informed that until the minutes are approved we couldn’t take action. If you make a motion to approve the minutes with corrections that the Board can move forward on motions.

(b) Vince responded that it’s important to get he minutes correct. Vince asked why Michele is an excused absence. Dan said she called and said she couldn’t come. Wilson wanted to know if in terms of parliamentary procedure, if minutes are tabled then does that makes this meeting null and void. Dan responded that until minutes are approved what we did in that meeting is not approved. Until we approve it in the next meeting they are not approved. Anastasia suggested just making the corrections and move on? Christine (DONE) reminded that if you have a budget item and the minutes are unapproved, DONE would not record them until they are approved. Paul wanted to know how that affects our bylaw changes.

VOTE: 3 in favor. Rest opposed. Motion fails.

(c) Orrin: Wilson and I will amend item #15 about the theater party. We will approve it for now and we will come back with better language later on.

(d) March Minutes Corrections: Correct spelling is “Durant” Library. Vince: Replace my absent with “special appearance.” Remove Steve Kifer’s name. Under #12 elections, motion to appoint Theresa as chair of Elections Committee. Dan said he didn’t think that’s what John said and that it was an extension of the original ad hoc committee so it takes the same name. Anthony suggested that John could have made a mistake but the minutes need not be corrected. Continued discussion on this subject. Christine said it is still an elections committee. Dan said he is willing to go along with ad hoc.

MOTION by Anthony to approve the March minutes
SECOND: Jen
VOTE: majority in favor. 3 abstain

4. APPROVAL OF MAY MINUTES
MOTION by Robert to approve May minutes
SECOND: Jen
VOTE: Majority in favor. 1 opposed – Vince. 1 abstain – Clair

5. TREASURER
(a) Bob distributed budget and audit report and went over all figures and balance. Reconciled through May 7, 2004. Audit papers submitted to DONE for several quarters; DONE finished auditing earlier quarters last week and sent an audit report. At any meeting food is served attendance is to be taken. There is $226 on prepaid card and $183.51 in demand warrant account. Orrin’s cancelled project money will be returned to the account. Bob asked for approval of his audit answers that go with DONE’s audit report for his visit tomorrow. Bob said he didn’t have any of the missing statements from before he took over, so there was discussion on how to get them. Bob said he would rephrase that answer because Anastasia said it could be misinterpreted. On the 2006 budget draft, it is close to the 2005, but something has to be given to DONE, but this is not what/how money will be spent. Orrin suggested that on Item 4 the Treasurer’s Motion dated 6/9/05 that the words, “as he sees fit” be deleted. In 2006 budget line item “All committee activities and projects” is for $18,900, when, Frank said, he thought it was a catch all category. Bob responded he was trying to be “general”. According to Christine she said the $18,900 is adequate for the election. This is needed before money has to be spent. Dan would have preferred for Theresa to be there to discuss it; the board didn’t want to give the executive board the authority to spend that kind of money.

(b) Regarding attendance Christine said the board needed general board meetings and committee meetings attendance and Bob said that DONE wants to take each event, divide by the number of names and what was spent and come up with a unit cost number. Guests and stakeholders were not required to sign in, as Dan thought was against the Brown Act. It was discussed if a head count or giving people the option to sign in would be ok. All the responses and items for the audit report were reviewed.

MOTION by Wilson to approve Bob’s responses
SECOND: Anastasia
VOTE: Consensus

MOTION by Wilson to approve the projected 2006 budget as submitted
SECOND: Anastasia
VOTE: Consensus

(c) Vince wanted to rename the 2006 line item “All committee activities and project” in Election budget, but Bob said he couldn’t. Orrin said that the Election Committee is like all the other committees. Christine suggested adding the words “and Elections” to the line item. Dan asked for a consensus to add those words and there was agreement.

MOTION by Clair to approve the budget report
SECOND: Paul

(d) Dan let Bob know that he wanted to discuss the use of HHWNC cash to cover our expenses for sponsored events at Yucca Community Center. Dan said if HHWNC was short of cash Bob should have been withdrawing cash from the credit card each month. . Bob responded that he never refused to give committee persons $50 and gave some more, but didn’t want to treat non board members different than board members. Dan wants to discuss it further in executive committee. Christine offered to facilitate the conversation.

VOTE: Unanimous

6. FINES FOR SIGNS – Agenda Motion #5
MOTION by Vince to table until November
Dan asked if he wanted to resubmit it and Christine reminded Vince there would be elections before November and maybe a new board. Vince withdrew the table motion.

7. VOGUE THEATER – agenda Motion #6
Paul had nothing further to report and Bob informed that an organization THS wants to see the theater restored.

8. NIGHT CLUB BUS – Agenda Motion 7. Robert Nudelman (Museum Dir) said no report on it yet.

9. RUNYON CANYON KIOSK – agenda Item 7b. Dan said the base has been poured. Rec and Parks will do work, as no one on this board showed interest. The volunteers’ graduation party is Saturday and Dan is providing drinks and dessert (is willing to be reimbursed later) and Roz from Yucca Center is preparing Lasagna and Councilmember LaBonge will hand out awards at 4p.m. at Yucca.

10. MOTION: Area 2, also known as the Cahuenga Pass West area (north of Mulholland Drive and west of Cahuenga Boulevard/101 Freeway)- moves to be transferred from the Sherman Oak, Studio City, Toluca Lake, Cahuenga Pass Community Plan to the Hollywood Community Plan as defined and administered by the City of Los Angeles Planning Commission.
Motion by Area 2 Committee
SECOND: Orrin

Area 1 under Paul Ramsey also supported it, but did not submit a physical vote. Charles gave the background, including slow police response time and Orrin talked about police response times and the new police facility being built on Olympic. Bob said he has spoken with other homeowner association Presidents in the area and is not sure there is unanimous support in Charles’ area for this. Orrin suggested working through the Planning Dept, and that the comment period had been extended so there may be a chance to testify or talk with planning staff.

VOTE: Majority in favor. 3 abstain – Vince, Orrin and Clair

11. MOTION: Due to a concern for increased traffic congestion and limited parking, the HHWNC hereby opposes the granting of a height variance for the development proposed at 1633 N. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, and stands in opposition to proposed double left-turn lanes from eastbound Sunset Boulevard to northbound La Brea Avenue. Hearing on variance scheduled June 22, 2005 (ZA-2005-1856-CU-ZV-ZAA).
Motion by Traffic Committee
SECOND: Anastasia

(a) Anthony said his Area 7 had a positive reaction to the project and thought it was well designed, but if opposed to density then should stand on that. Bob recommend entering into a dialogue with the developers because middle-income housing is needed and most developments need a variance. Robert Nudelman said that variances nullify the Community Plan and everything on this particular development needs one. He has also spoken to the developer. Anastasia said the condos start at around $600,000 and is not in favor of the way the plan is being put forth. Frank said there is the problem in dense corridors to create housing and there is talk about new ordinances, that we have to provide more housing and are losing workforce housing to Arizona and Texas. Also the place to create them is near transportation corridors. This project requires variances and is a mixed used high quality project.

(b) AMENDMENT by Bob that the board express its concern about this project and we form a subcommittee to meet with both the developer and the city planning department to hear our concerns.

SECOND: Anthony.

(c) Bob suggested Anastasia and Frank could join the committee. Anthony supports Bob, saying that the developer has asked to come before this board but we didn’t have a motion for it, so table this and make a motion for them to present. Anastasia said that whoever invites them to advise that we want to present neighborhood concerns. Dan reminded that their hearing is June 22, they did contact him, but the agenda was already full, so that’s when they chose to go with an open house. Robert and Dan agreed that the board could comment after the hearing if the ZA holds his decision off. Wilson asked if they could come in after June 22. Bob withdrew his motion.

(d) MOTION by Anastasia that this board oppose the proposed mitigation double left turn lane on LaBrea, which is part of this project, as it does not affect their building, but does affect traffic.

(e) FRIENDLY AMENDMENT by Bob that we authorize Anastasia and Frank to express our concerns at the hearing. [Not accepted]

VOTE: on Traffic Committee’s original motion. 4 in favor. 6 opposed. Motion fails.

SECOND by Paul on Anastasia’s motion

(f) Discussion on how to frame an alternative motion, whether variances should be part of the motion, should we make suggestions for other things for them to do, make written comments to the June 22 hearing and also have them come to us with a different traffic solution. The board won’t take a position on approval or opposition, but wants to see a traffic mitigation plan.

(g) MOTION by Orrin that the board agrees that the proposed mitigation plan with regard to the 2 left hand turn lanes would be an insufficient basis for granting the variance to permit construction of this project. We would hope that further studies and different mitigations would be considered.

SECOND: Charley

Dan suggested a cover letter be included inviting the developer to meet with the board.

VOTE: majority in favor. 1 abstain – Anthony

12. NEXT MEETING DATE:
Dan wanted a July meeting, but not enough people would be present for a quorum on July 7 or 14. Asked to look at July 21.

13. AD HOC ELECTIONS COMMITTEE – MOTION: That HHWNC approves the spending of the allocated funds for the Ad Hoc Elections Committee ($18,900 for the 2006/2006 Elections).
Motion by Ad Hoc Elections Committee tabled May 5th.
SECOND: ???

(a) Discussion on spending half the budget on elections and that DONE has resources the NC could use. Bob said he learned from DONE that last year average spent on an election was $4,700 by NCs. Anthony said that Theresa argued justifiably that it takes money to run an election, so maybe spend the money on an as need basis rather than hand the money over to the committee. Wilson wanted to see an actual budget and not finalize things tonight. Ken suggested $6,500 for the committee and anything over that be approved by the board. Vince said items 23 and 24 were discussed at their meeting and said the $3,000 was Dan Pasley’s retainer; he agreed with Wilson on the budget. Orrin said that San Pedro’s election was challenged and we need to ask Pasley about that since he worked on it. Also Theresa said there would be a party and awards event after the election. Clair wanted the PR put out for bids, and to vote on both motions now. Vince said he brought it up to Theresa, but nothing has gone out so far. Bob said that DONE has specific rules about contracting outside vendors. He agrees with Ken on the $6,500 start. Robert thought that the $18,900 was used before and that perhaps Theresa saw that number somewhere else.

VOTE: on Motion #23 approve spending of funds. Unanimous opposition – motion fails.

(b) MOTION by Ken that the board approve up to $6,500 for expenses for the election procedures and anything above that has to be approved by the board.
SECOND: Wilson

(c) We have to get a slate of candidates, so Bob suggested for outreach in July to get candidates, use $2,000. And further that the $6,500 fund the entire election and if need be come back for more money. Paul said he thought the $18,900 was to have the event in October. Anthony wanted to know what the $6,500 would be spent on since no one has seen a budget. Bob suggested up to $2,000 for outreach to candidates through the month of July and up to $4,500 for the election. Ken withdrew his motion.

MOTION by Bob that the board approve up to $2,000 for the election committee to spend for outreach to candidates through the month of July.
SECOND: Ken

(d) Discussion on whether Dan Pasley should make another presentation since some agreed he only gave an abbreviated on the first time.

SECOND: ????
VOTE: motion fails

MOTION by Elections Committee that election procedures and education be on the website (excerpt of agenda #25 motion)

SECOND by Bob
