[SILVER LAKE NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL] 2016 in Review
Over the last six months the newly elected Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Governing Board (SLNC) has worked to be sure the issues Silver Lake residents and stakeholders care about most are addressed. Here are a just a few of highlights of what has been accomplished. We wish you all a peaceful, healthy and hopeful 2017!
- The SLNC partnered with CD4, CD13 and community organizations to be sure the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power fulfilled its commitment to refill the Silver Lake Reservoir. Three well-attended community meetings were organized, and the refilling of this landmark will begin in May 2017.
- After months of work by residents, the SLNC Transportation and Public Works Committee co-chair/Region 1 representative Doug Loewy, and Council Districts 13 and 4, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation installed Overnight Parking District (OPD) signs along the reservoir.
- The Urban Design and Preservation Advisory Committee worked with the community on a number of projects slated for development, including Junction Gateway. SLNC led a campaign to help the community avoid the harmful consequences of gas leaf blowers.
- Neighborhood streets and sidewalks were repaired, and SLNC supported and promoted nearly 20 community events. We also funded numerous special projects including bilingual CERT classes and Dog Waste Bags around the Silver Lake Reservoir, and recently approved a $1,000.00 grant to the AT Center in support of their Saturday Matinee Program.
- The SLNC also created the 50+, Homelessness In Silver Lake, and the Neighborhood Business committees to better serve specific needs and concerns of our community.
We would like to thank Alison Cohen and the Los Feliz Ledger for including our monthly letters in this terrific community newspaper. And special thanks to all SLNC Governing Board and Committee members who work so hard to serve their community.
