Creating safer streets in the Seventh Council District for all users of the road has been a top priority. My team worked with LADOT Official on safety improvements for Foothill Boulevard from Sherman Grove Avenue to Apperson Street. Last year, LADOT selected this stretch as a Vision Zero Priority Corridor’ due to the high number of traffic fatalities and serious injuries between 2009 and 2019. This provides additional funding and design improvements to improve traffic safety. 

These improvements include: 
•13 high visibility continental crosswalks at minor intersections, and green conflict zone striping to the existing bike lanes. 
•Redesign including new striping and reflective bollards to simplify traffic flow through the complex intersection at Foothill Boulevard, Greenburn Avenue, and Summitrose Street. 
•A left turn restriction from a busy driveway was implemented to restrict cross-traffic  left turns and improve queueing 
•Signal upgrades and installations are planned to include protected left-turns and flashing beacons for crosswalks and emergency services. 

To make suggestions for future improvements in this area, please go to https://ladotlivablestreets.org/projects/foothill-safety. For additional information on this project, contact my Sunland-Tujunga field office at (818) 352-3287.

This green paint and signs are nice but they are useless as the fireworks ordinance as there is ZERO enforcement. We need cops to enforce speeding laws and reckless drivering, Can you get traffic cops out here ?

Today, I joined Mayor Eric Garcetti, Capri Maddox the Executive Director of the Los Angeles Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department, and Shari Davis the Co-Executive Director of the Participatory Budgeting Project to launch LA Repair - a participatory budget to lift up Los Angeles. The LA REPAIR Participatory Budget will distribute roughly $8.5 million in city funds directly to nine LA City communities called LA REPAIR Zones. Out of those nine communities Pacoima, Mission Hills, and North Hills are included. 

Community members of each REPAIR Zone will submit ideas that everyone in the neighborhood can vote on, empowering individuals to decide how dollars are spent in their community. This pilot project serves as an important tool to empower disenfranchised communities to have greater input on spending decisions for their neighborhoods. This process will be instrumental in uplifting voices that too often are overshadowed by the voices of more affluent areas. To learn more about how to participate, please visit https://repair.lacity.org/ or call (213) 978-1845.

Thank you for being an ardent supporter LA REPAIR!

Does this plan also include Sylmar, or are we just too affluent?

Today, the City Council approved the City Budget for the 2022-2023 Fiscal Year. Funds were allocated for city services, new programs, and employment opportunities. I’m proud that this budget assures the fiscal prosperity of our city. Now the budget will be presented to the Mayor for approval. For more information about the proposed budget please visit https://cao.lacity.org/budget/.

I’m extremely happy with the FY 22-23 Budget that was passed today. Great job LASAN, CAO, B&F Committee, CLA, and City Council. Now the Mayor needs to approve and sign it. Congratulations to all who made it possible. 😁

I’m happy to vote for Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. Her hard work and dedication to the SF Valley is always greatly appreciated.

Idiots, all.^^

During our recent community drive, my team identified illegal dumping items in the 11100 block of Stranwood Avenue in Mission Hills. My team reported this site to the Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment and the department picked up the items that were blocking the public right-of-way. 

Don’t wait for illegal dumping or debris in your neighborhood to become a nuisance. Report it to our city crew via 3-1-1. If you have a corridor in mind that may benefit from Operation Bright S.P.O.T., please call the Pacoima office at (818) 485-0600, Sylmar office at (818) 756-8409, or the Sunland-Tujunga office at (818) 352-3287.

How is the performance of the 311 system?

Any reason why LAPD police protective league is NOT endorsing you ?
