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.

Studio City NC Update - February 9, 2020

Posted on 02/09/20

Look out Studio City stakeholders, it's time for some SCNC updates!

First up, let's take a look at some of this week's committee meetings:

Monday, February 10 at 6:30pm, Government Affairs Committee in our conference room in Editorial 2, Room 6. CBS Studio Center. (agenda) (map)

Tuesday, February 11 at 7:30pm, Homelessness Committee in their usual meeting place at the First Christian Church on the corner of Moorpark and Colfax. (agenda)

Wednesday, February 12 at 7:00pm, Land Use Committee in the meeting room where we usually have our board meeting in building 8, room 3. CBS Studio Center. (agenda)(map)

As always, all of our meetings are open to the public, if you're attending one of the meetings on the CBS Studio Center lot, please park in the Sater lot and allow enough time to check in with security and walk directly to the meeting rooms. Maps are attached below this update.

SCNC’s Land Use Committee Chair, Lisa Karadjian would like to thank the tireless effort put forth by the Tujunga Village Neighbors in particular, Elisa Gabrielli and Julie Faubert for having filed and fought for an appeal against the Verizon Cell Tower in our neighborhood. An update will follow as soon as a final decision has been made by City Planning. Residents organizing together to have a voice in their own neighborhoods is one of the best ways local communities stay local and speaks to the purpose of the neighborhood council system.

Additionally, all involved would like to express their gratitude to Assemblymember Adrian Nazarian, Councilmember Krekorian, and their staff for their vital assistance and support. Their staff-members attendance at the hearing was greatly appreciated.

All stakeholders are welcome to attend Wednesday night's Land Use Meeting - 7PM. 

Speaking of people getting involved, a reminder that we will be filling a vacant board seat for the At-large stakeholder at our monthly board meeting next week on February 19. 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.

With that, I'll sign off for now, and leave you with a sincere thank you for the continued privilege of serving Studio City.

Studio City NC Update - November 17, 2019

Posted on 11/17/19

To the friends and stakeholders of Studio City,
 
Our monthly board meeting is this Wednesday, November 20 at 7pm in our usual meeting room on the CBS Studio Center lot in Building 8 (here's a map on where to park and where to go). This month, we have a special guest – City Councilmember Paul Krekorian, who will give an update on our community and take any questions you may have.
 
We will, of course, hear updates from our hardworking Committees on the various ways they’ve been making Studio City better for all, and since this will be our last board meeting before our annual Luminaria on December 8th, we will be reaching out to the public for ways you can help with this year’s event.
 
Please know that all of our meetings are open to the public, and everyone is welcome to attend and give public comment on any issue that affects us here in Studio City. Take a look at this month’s agenda and see if there’s anything that grabs your attention, things that you wish to get more involved in, or even if you just want to grab some light refreshments and see how it all works! Our work is best served when it’s done in close collaboration with everyday members of the public.

One thing that's coming up beforehand, we have a last minute need for two Census Goodwill Ambassadors for the upcoming 2020 census from Studio City. The training is this Tuesday, November 19 from 6:30-8:00pm at Los Angeles City Hall, and we need to make sure that Studio City is counted! You don't even yet need to be directly involved with the SCNC to become one of our census liaisons, so please reach out to me and I'll get you set up. We need all hands on deck to ensure that Los Angeles is properly counted to get the funding and representation that we deserve for the next 10 years.
 
And finally, if you’d like to stay in touch with the SCNC, our social media presence has come alive, through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, or you can always directly email me and I can help you reach answers for which you may have questions.
 
That’s all for now, thank you for the continued privilege of serving Studio City, and I hope to see you all on Wednesday night!

Studio City NC Update - October 8, 2019

Posted on 10/08/19


A quick update on how the Studio City Neighborhood Council is doing the work of the community this week!

Tonight, the Outreach Committee meets, led by its new chair, Alli Spotts-De Lazzer - if you've noticed the more engaged SCNC social media presence over the last month, you have Alli to thank. She has been committed to making sure that the stakeholders of Studio City are aware of all of the updates that affect our neighborhood, but she can't do it alone! If you're interested in getting involved helping out, please attend tonight and see how best you can help our outreach efforts.

Tomorrow night is the Land Use Committee meeting, where Lisa Karadjian will be organizing a street cleanup for November 10. Any participation is needed and welcome and is another great way to serve your community and get out and meet your neighbors!

Thursday, we travel outside of our homebase to the Studio City Rec Center in Beeman Park for the Public Safety Committee, in part, for a community discussion on the proposed changes to LAMC 41.18.

In just over a week, we'll be having our monthly board meeting, and part of this month is hosting Department of City Planning to provide an informational update on the launch of the Ventura-Cahuenga Boulevard Corridor Specific Plan amendment process. Please see this FAQ document for the proposed updates and hope to see you at the meeting for any further questions you all may have.

That's all for now! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me for any issues or even if you wanted to have a gentle chat about Studio City. I am always honored everyday I have the privilege of serving our neighborhood, and part of that is hearing from all of the different voices that make up our little corner of Los Angeles.

Studio City NC Update

Posted on 09/15/19

To the stakeholders of Studio City (that's pretty dry and formal, isn't it?)

I cannot believe that another whole month has gone by and it's now time for our September board meeting this Wednesday - same Studio City time, same Studio City place - 7pm in Building 8 on the CBS Studio Center lot. And get a look at this agenda! Another month of hard work from our volunteers, stakeholders, and committees.

Take a look over the agenda and please join us. Among many things, we'll be hearing from the Clean Water Outreach Team from LA Sanitation & Environment to brief us on an emergency sewer repair and putting forward the proposed revisions to our Bylaws and Operating Procedures.

Also on the agenda is to fill the Residential Renter vacancy (as well as the still-vacant Youth Member position). If you're interested in being considered for the seat on the SCNC Board, email me by noon on Wednesday to throw your hat into the ring! Make sure to be present at the board meeting to field any questions.

Of course, that's not the only way to get involved with the SCNC. If you wanted to be one of our liaisons to the city or wish to join one of our committees, reach out and we can find the right spot for you to help contribute to your community.

I'd like to take this time to thank Alli Spotts-De Lazzer and our Vice President, Randy Fried, for taking on the SCNC website and making it much more approachable and welcoming. More changes coming soon, but we're starting to get rid of all of these cobwebs. If you haven't checked out the website lately, it's definitely worth a look (and a bookmark!)

Thank you to all the stakeholders that emailed me last week about the styles of these updates - I will continue to keep these as lively as I can! This kind of feedback is great and helps us make sure we're getting the right messages across to fit your needs.

And with that, I'll sign off for now and of course, a thank you for the continued privilege of serving the people of Studio City.
