Area 3 Minutes

January 12, 2011

Meeting Started at 5:05 p.m.

There were 14 people in attendance, two of which myself and Marcello Robinson (Housing Chair)were board members.

After introductions there was a brief over view of upcoming events and street closures in Hollywood including the Oscars and the L.A. Marathon. I also gave an update on the pylons that were located on Cherokee, Las Palmas and Whitley. Currently CD13 Representative Angela Motta has set up a meeting with the stakeholders that pushed for the pylons and once she meets with them, there will be a decision made as to what will happen to them.

There was a brief over view of the problems in the area with dog waste along Yucca Corridor and the need to have muttmitts placed in area3 with Trash cans.  Paul Woolsey had spoke about the purchase that was made by the board for Runyon Canyon. It was agreed by the attendees that it was a necessity.

Paul Woolsey brought forth the motion to submit a proposal to the general board to purchase muttmitt containers as well as garbage cans for area 3. It was seconded by area 3 Stakeholder Vinny Laresca. It was unanimously voted a yes for the motion.

Then we had a presentation by the CIM group, which was doing a presentation on an Italian Food Restaurant that would be at 6615 Hollywood Boulevard. It will serve a full line of liquor with the food. It has a contract with DOT for 243 parking spaces for their customers to be able to park. They will also provide valet service. The operating hours will be from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. A concern from several stakeholders was raised about whether or not a DJ would be there and they were told no and that it was not going to be any type of nightclub but a restaurant only.

After their presentation  and under new business, Katheryn Penny, the director of Yucca Recreation Center did a brief over view of what the Yucca Center does and that they were preparing for their spring event and were looking for donations of food and decorations in order to provide for the large number of children they were expecting.

Vinny Laresca had brought up the fact, that it may be beneficial if he and area 3 work to get the word out to other businesses so that they can help support the Yucca Recreation Center and its activities.

At the end of the meeting Paul Woolsey had inquired if the meeting was set at 5:00 p.m. in order to fit in to my schedule and I explained that the time difference was an attempt to assist those who had trouble finding parking.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:50 p.m.
