The Aug. 12 commission meeting approval has been RESCHEDULED
The Greek Theatre Management RFP award recommendation has been rescheduled. The Staff recommendation is not listed on the agenda for the August 12 Commission meeting. If you were planning to attend there is no need at this time. It is likely that the recommendation will be submitted to the Commission for approval at the next scheduled meeting on September 2. We will send out an alert if that is the case.
KEEP SENDING LETTERS
Let’s continue the push to register objections to the RAP takeover of the Greek Theatre.
Tell our new Councilmember how important this issue is to you. Again, some of the top objections are: lack of public input throughout the self-operation planning process, lack of transparency, no publically released traffic/parking plan, the attempt by RAP to keep the process away from City Council scrutiny, irregularities in the approval process, no protections for the neighborhood regarding a limit on the number of consecutive events, compulsory parking fees on each ticket and the fact that RAP staff has presented no supporting Income/Expense numbers to justify this plan.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
SEND AN EMAIL OR CALL THE COUNCIL OFFICE: (213) 485-3337
IF YOU’VE ALREADY WRITTEN: If you haven’t written in the last two months, write again, your input will be seen by a new set of eyes. (Previous communications did not transfer to the incoming councilmember.)
Every individual letter counts. Every in-person Public Comment counts. We must show them a wide community alarm on this matter.
