We are writing in support of a City of Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument (HCM) designation for The Taylor Residence, owned by Louis and Suzanne Wenzlaff, at 3247 Waverly Drive, Los Angeles (90027).
The LFIA, representing all residents of Los Feliz, encourages the City’s Recreation and Parks Department in its ongoing study of a strategic transportation plan for Griffith Park. Los Feliz is dominated by the park on its entire northern boundary and is therefore significantly impacted by automobile traffic visiting the park’s numerous popular venues. Some of those venues can only be accessed through our residential hillside neighborhoods, which have limited transportation infrastructure.
As the oldest neighborhood advocacy group in Los Angeles, LFIA has a long history of addressing the needs of the residents of Los Feliz. As you may be aware, in the 1990s, this included playing a significant role in the original plans for the conversion of the Rowena Reservoir.
The Los Feliz Improvement Association (LFIA) was pleased to see that on September 10, 2019 you voted YES on Council File 19-0939, supporting an Interim Control Ordinance (ICO) to prohibit the issuance of demolition, building, grading and other applicable permits in C2 zones, where the property is located immediately adjacent to an R1 or more restrictive zone and fronts a local street.
Our historic neighborhood, full of both single-family homes and various forms of multi-unit buildings, has benefited greatly from zoning regulations and we object to the one-size-fits-all approach coming from Sacramento.
LFIA is writing in support of AB 1788, introduced by Assemblymember Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica). The bill would ban second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) in California.
We request that the Los Angeles Department of Transportation collaborate with this Working Group and take action to improve street safety, manage speeding, and promote safety on this corridor (Hyperion).
The bill would ban second generation anticoagulant rodenticides (SGARs) in California—the most toxic, “one-feeding kills” poisons—as well as first generation anticoagulants (FGARs) on state-owned properties.
