The Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department is, hosting six community forums throughout the City, in October 2013.
The City is organizing a series of Consolidated Planning Community Meetings to solicit and engage the public in providing feedback on their respective neighborhood needs and meet of the criteria that the current neighborhood plans require.
These sessions are open to the public and the Council is requesting participation and input. Help create your neighborhood!
The results are in! The winners of the 2013 EmpowerLA Awards were finalized at the September 9th special meeting of the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners. The vote on Monday was the culmination of a process that began in May. A total of 45 nominations were received for projects that exemplified the mission of Neighborhood Councils to engage local stakeholders with government and make government more accountable and responsive to the needs of their communities. DLANC is very honored to be amongst the many prestegious entries who have accepted an award.
This week DLANC had the pleasure of assisting locally community leader Coach Ron Crockett and DTLA social organization, DTLA Rendevous with a school supply drive for the children that live in the mission. Stakeholders and board members were encouraged to bring much needed supplies for the children such as backpacks filled with notepaper, folders, crayons, markers, pens, and pencils.
Coach Ron was striving for fifty backpacks and together we acheived thirty. We will still be taking ongoing donations at each DLANC board meeting.
