HOW THE NC
GETS PROJECTS DONE
board member submits proposal for NC to approve project
stakeholders sign petition then
board secures funding and permits
we all work together in the neighborhood to realize the project
Current Projects are the top priority of the WSNC. This means that a need in the neighborhood has been identified by a constituent or board member. A board member has built a proposal outlining how to address that need with a project plan, and the board has approved resources to realize the project.
IDENTIFY NEW PROJECTS
WEEKLY STARTING NOVEMBER 2021
EVERY BLOCK IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
OUTREACH + COMMUNICATIONS
What project on your block would make the neighborhood better for all of us? Walkabouts are led by board members of your NC. Constituents are encouraged to join and point out potential projects. Public trash cans? More parking? Landscaping in the sidewalk median? LAPD patrols to deter crime? Sign up on the events page to join a Walkabout or email the team to suggest one in your part of the neighborhood.
CLOSE THE BLOCK!
PROVIDE A SAFE SPACE FOR RESIDENTS TO PLAY
MONTHLY STARTING JANUARY 2022
FOUR HOURS ON A WEEKEND AFTERNOON
OUTREACH + COMMUNICATIONS
Let's take back the street! Studies show that neighborhoods where neighbors know each other and socialize together are safer for everyone. The purpose of this project is to close a residential block to car traffic for two hours on a week night so kids and neighbors can play safely in the street. WSNC will provide refreshments and games and even clean up the trash on that block. Do you want to close your block so we can play?
Future Projects are what the WSNC plans to focus on next. Given board members are volunteers and the NC has limited resources, assistance from the neighborhood is critical to realize a project. Want to see these future projects get started? Sign the petition, or better yet, email the committee chair leading the project and volunteer to help!
TO GET SUPPORT AND FUNDING FROM OUR COUNCILMAN'S OFFICE AND CITY DEPARTMENTS WE HAVE TO DEMONSTRATE ENOUGH OF US SUPPORT EACH PROJECT.
ADD 32 PARKING SPACES - 1300 INGRAHAM
CREATE MORE FREE STREET PARKING
1300 BLOCK INGRAHAM ST + 600 VALENCIA ST
Not enough free street parking is the number one livability issue of the residents of 1300 Ingraham Street and 600 Valencia Street in the Westlake South neighborhood of the City of Los Angeles. Landlords have difficulty renting apartments given the lack of parking. Residents and visitors illegally and unsafely park their cars in alleys blocking access to first responder vehicles and legal tenant parking, block fire hydrants, regularly park in red zones, and families are forced to double park in the street to unload groceries and babies in car seats often creating an unsafe environment for drivers and pedestrians as well as at times causing the street to become impassable. And, residents have almost been hit by speeding drivers. A solution is to make the street one way and re-stripe the south side of the street for angle parking as LADOT has done in mid-City neighborhoods. The current estimate is that up to 32 free parking spaces could be created with this one solution.
