Mid City Neighborhood Council March 2011

The Mid-City Neighborhood Council’s March 14 stakeholder meeting ran smoothly without many major updates since its February meeting.

-  CIM Group Inc. forwarded enhanced drawings of Midtown Crossing to board member Bruce Durbin.

-  The council is looking into a parcel where RVs park and into a marijuana clinic on Redondo that is believed to be illegal.

-  The design committee is beginning to extrapolate graphic images from the MINC logo to be used on banners and other MINC signage.


Two funding requests in phase two (of four proposal stages) are a MINC music pavilion and a vinyl banner for Washington Boulevard.

-  There was no status update on the new MINC website. Edgar Arroyo of the outreach committee is in charge of the project but was absent. President Allan DiCastro reported the website name has been purchased and there is an internal website that has not been published because it is not ready.

-  Durbin has nearly completed his survey of sidewalk repairs to be submitted to Council District 10.

-  The board of directors approved a $500 grant to cover brushes, gloves and buckets for 100 local 7th graders who will repaint fire hydrants on Washington Boulevard between Fairfax and Redondo.

-  Two letters of support were authorized by the MINC board in February. One was for the median island on Washington Boulevard at Alsace. The council also supported CD 10’s extension of the Ballona Creek Bicycle Path addressing the same concerns as The Cochran Ave./Cloverdale Block Club. This block club is closest to the area impacted by the extension of the bike path, which stretches from Mid City to Playa Del Rey.

-  The council also is investigating whether it can adopt an unclaimed area on La Cienega. Though MINC submitted paperwork for adoption, adjacent neighborhood councils are interested in adopting it as well.

Celia Bell is resigning from the board because she is relocating to Vegas soon.  ( Editor: Neighborhood News Salutes the years of service and dedication Cecilia gave to her community!)

-  MINC’s new by-laws were approved.
