Studio City NC Zoom/Call-in meeting

Posted on 03/31/20

Studio City Neighborhood Council

To the stakeholders of Studio City (hopefully) staying safe at home--

I hope you are all making the best out of these strange times and are well.
 
Despite our inability to formally hold meetings, the SCNC has been working overtime to serve the stakeholders of Studio City.
 
We want to hold a Zoom/Call-in meeting tomorrow night to update everyone. I believe the current plan is for myself and Randy Fried (SCNC VP) to run them and moderate everyone’s questions and updates, but more importantly, to just see some friendly faces and meet other neighbors.

If you'd like to join us, please download the Zoom app from zoom.us and download the app (or use the call-in number). At 6pm on Wednesday click on this link:

Meeting ID: 355 061 954
Password: 629325
Or by phone: 253-215-8782
 
If anyone has any other questions on how to join, reach out to me and I can try to walk through any sticking points – I only learned of Zoom since this whole thing started, so I’m also trying to catch up with the technology a bit.

See you there!

Statement from the LAPD

Posted on 03/17/20

Deployment of LAPD Area Detectives and Front Desk Operations due to COVID-19

In an effort to augment staffing levels, reassure the public, and create a safe environment for our employees, the Los Angeles Police Department is modifying some of our regular services. We ask for your patience during this time, as this shift of resources may impact the public.

Effective immediately, we will be deploying 50 percent of our area detective workforce to uniformed patrol assignments. These dedicated resources will perform high visibility patrols to critical locations throughout our 21 geographic areas, ensuring the safety of the residents and any store operators that may be dealing with very large crowds.

This deployment is not a response to any specific heightened criminal activity. To date, we have experienced very few isolated non-medical calls for service throughout the entire region related to the health emergency. There is no indication that there will be any change to this posture. We have seen Angelenos rise to the occasion by social distancing, good hygiene and sheltering with loved ones.

Also, starting Wednesday, all of our geographic areas will be closing their front desks and walk-up service. This move is an effort to ensure social distancing and do our part to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Instead of going to your local area station, we are asking the public to use unique email addresses assigned to each of our 21 area front desks. Those emails will be monitored 24/7 and routed to the proper channels. Rest assured, we will still respond to crimes in progress or a crime in need of immediate follow up, as Watch Commanders will dispatch patrol officers to those incidents.

There will be some exceptions to the closures for specific business that requires an in-person meeting including, but not limited to:

-Vehicle/Property Release
-Child Custody Exchanges
-Attorney Visitation (with an individual in custody)
-Bail/Bond Releases

An officer will give specific directions on how those visits will be handled.

These new guidelines will greatly reduce contact between members of the public and Department personnel, hopefully ensuring the health and well-being of our workforce.

The LAPD is committed to providing professional service for our community and keeping our employees healthy, is critical as we continue to protect and serve the people of Los Angeles.

Here are the unique email addresses for the Geographic Areas:

SCNC coronavirus information - March 13, 2020

Posted on 03/13/20

To the stakeholders of Studio City - what a week, huh?

In order to take the precautions necessarily to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, this month's SCNC board meeting is cancelled, as well as any committee meetings until the end of this month. Simple hygiene practices and social distancing are very effective in situations such as this, so all of the neighborhood councils are now operating from the same guidance as the city.

A lot of you are just looking for reliable information on what's going on, so please sign up for NotifyLA for frequent updates and information about the coronavirus including prevention.

For more, I'd like to share some of the information from Mayor Eric Garcetti:
 


  • Public events: All non-essential public community events or group activities with 50 or more participants –– or that require close contact between vulnerable individuals –– will be postponed or cancelled in order to limit the risk of exposing staff and the public to the virus. This includes all events or conferences on City-owned properties that are anticipated to attract more than 50 people.
  • Entry to city buildings: The City will stagger entry for visitors in public buildings to no more than 50 at a time — including City museums, libraries, parks, pools, and community centers. Transit locations and similar facilities, including LAX and the Port of Los Angeles, as well as all City shelters, are exempt from this requirement at this time. The Los Angeles City Hall complex, including City Hall East, City Hall South, and Van Nuys City Hall, will be temporarily closed to members of the public, except for public meetings of the City Council.
  • Sanitation protocols: Hand-washing and sanitizing stations will be available in City-owned public buildings, and extra steps are being taken to clean facilities regularly and thoroughly.

More about what the City is doing:

  • Prevention and preparedness: We’re working to get the word out with the latest information about COVID-19, and ways to protect yourself and your family, including practicing social distancing. Learn more from the L.A. County Department of Public Health.
  • Homeless Angelenos: Our Unified Homelessness Response Center (UHRC) is closely monitoring the situation and taking steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among Angelenos experiencing homelessness. The UHRC is coordinating with the L.A. Homeless Services Authority and the L.A. County Department of Public Health to ensure unsheltered Angelenos have information about the virus and resources to protect their health and safety. Homelessness outreach teams and shelter providers are receiving additional training on best practices for addressing a coronavirus outbreak and referring individuals experiencing illness to medical professionals. We’re adding new hygiene stations throughout the city, as well as providing hand sanitizer to homeless Angelenos.
  • Public transportation: Metro, Metrolink, and LADOT are closely monitoring the current situation. Each agency is vigorously cleaning buses, trains, stations, and facilities on a regular basis and will continue to review and update cleaning protocols as needed.
  • Public schools: The L.A. Unified School District Board of Education voted this week to delegate emergency powers to the Superintendent in the event that action needs to be taken swiftly as the COVID-19 situation unfolds. LAUSD is coordinating with and following the guidance of the CDC and the County Department of Public Health should school closures be required at any point. In the meantime, the District has implemented several new policies — including cancelling all large gatherings of staff and/or students, and all off-campus visits by students and staff to public places where crowds may gather. At this time, student competitions are allowed to proceed without spectators.

Here are steps you should take:

  • Know the symptoms: COVID-19 symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath — and may appear in as few as 2 days or as long as 14 days after exposure. Person-to-person spread mainly occurs via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, like the flu. A less common form of transmission can take place from objects or surfaces that become infected.
  • Take precautions: If you are sick, stay home. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Cover your cough or sneeze. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces. If you have recently traveled in an area with COVID-19 infections or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 and are showing symptoms, monitor your health and contact your doctor.
  • Plan ahead: Make sure you have extra food, medical supplies, and emergency kits in your home. Talk to your family, friends, and neighbors to develop emergency plans — particularly for children, seniors, and anyone with chronic medical conditions that may make them particularly susceptible to illness. And remember, L.A. City tap water continues to be of the highest quality and is 100-percent safe to drink. LADWP’s treatment processes are specifically designed to protect the public from all viruses and harmful bacteria. 
  • Stay informed: Stick with trusted and official sources for accurate and timely updates, including CDC.govPublicHealth.LACounty.gov, and LAMayor.org/Coronavirus. And don’t forget to sign up for NotifyLA, our city’s emergency notification system. For more questions, you can call 211, the County’s hotline, which is available 24/7.


Please share this information with your friends, family, and neighbors.

Community fears are best faced with community bonds, and by keeping yourself prepared, you protect those around you. Looking out for each other in this way is what neighborhoods are all about, and I can think of no better neighborhood than Studio City to be diligent in helping limit the impact of this coronavirus.

Stay safe, watch your hands thoroughly, and be kind to your local retail workers!

Studio City NC Update - February 16, 2020

Posted on 02/16/20

Happy President's Day, stakeholders of Studio City, let's get to the updating...

It's the week of our monthly SCNC board meeting, this Wednesday, February 19 at 7pm in building 8, room 3 on the CBS Studio Center lot. As always, all of our meetings are open to the public, so please take a look at this month's agenda and see if anything catches your interest or come join us even if you just want to get a glimpse of how our local government operates!

One item of note, of course, is the filling of the vacant board seat for the At-large stakeholder. Thank you to those who have already submitted your candidacies, and to those still interested, there's still time! If you'd like to throw your hat into the ring, email a brief candidate statement to our Corresponding Secretary, Alexa Steinberg. We ask that all candidates be present at the board meeting so other board members can ask questions and make an informed choice.

But that's not all this week for the SCNC. This Friday, starting at 5:30pm at the Studio City Library, we kick off our Open Forum series for local candidates on the March 3rd ballot. If you have any questions or are a candidate and would like to participate, please contact our Government Affairs Committee chair, Eric Preven.

See you all on Wednesday for the board meeting and thank you for the continued privilege of serving Studio City.
