QUESTION: How accurate has SCAG been in allocating the housing unit number for LA City over time versus the allocation of all other cities in the SCAG region?
David Uebersax
01:04:47
And is there the Compass 2% plan still in play? (anticipating growth in 2% of the area, centered on current/potential transit such as Metro/Light Rail etc.)
Glenn Bailey
01:23:22

We will post link to presentation, which includes the contact information, on the LANCC.org website for this meeting.
Matt Glesne
01:28:28
Terrence - it is hard to know how accurate SCAG has been in their RHNA allocations to jurisdictions in the region. I will note that there was a major debate this year at SCAG that resulted in a different type of RHNA methodology that years prior, which focused more on coastal areas rather than inland areas with the idea that these areas are more in demand, have better transit and access to jobs.
Matt Glesne
01:29:40
David, thank you. I believe the Compass 2% plan was a SCAG plan. I am not sure if it is still in effect. SCAG recently updated their regional transportation plan and sustainable communities strategy (RTP/SCS), which charted out the regional growth plan.
Matt Glesne
01:35:25
Apologies Glenn and everyone The slides should be able to be opened by everyone now.

Thanks Matt!

Laura - we will take comments throughout the process,. But right now we are specifically asking folks to provide feedback on draft concepts and strategies by taking this survey: https://migsurvey.limequery.com/813839?lang=en#

That's my Sid! Great question. :)
Tony Wilkinson
02:02:04
In today's LA, even when the City Council passes an ordinance the Mayor then tells the police or other department (which he runs) not to enforce.
David Uebersax
02:03:28
We've had fatalities I believe in Sepulveda Dam area as an example...not just in the winter
Tony Wilkinson
02:03:44
We should get to a vite. I don't think we will get the people who want no fires or the people who want no restrictions on the unhoused (especially those who refuse housing) to change their minds.
Cord Thomas
02:06:49
hyperbole
Nina Royal
02:07:31
How can anyone say “my neighborhood council say “my neighborhood council won’t go for this” without a vote by them.?
Adriana De La Cruz
02:08:29
The Fire Code is a component of the overall Los Angeles Municipal Code and is a combination of the California Fire Code and the Los Angeles amendments. The Adoption Ordinance shows which sections of the California Fire Code were adopted and any changes that were made.Here is a link to the 2017 Los Angeles Fire Code and the California Fire Code. https://codes.iccsafe.org/codes/city%20of%20los%20angeles https://up.codes/viewer/california/ca-fire-code-2019/chapter/50/hazardous-materials-general-provisions#5003
Tony Wilkinson
02:09:01
Nina, we all know how our councils are likely to vote. The folks are just reporting what they know. Sirprises happen but are not frequent.
Cord Thomas
02:09:24
I was going to say that Tony
Cord Thomas
02:09:34
We have a sense of the voice of our NC
Cord Thomas
02:10:08
We need data. A lot of anecdotes
Tony Wilkinson
02:10:33
The tens prohibition is indeed "mission creep" for an anti-fire reolution
Tony Wilkinson
02:10:45
Tents prohibition
Adriana De La Cruz
02:11:11
They are created to keep the building and their residents safe from any fire emergencies. However, the problem occurs when the fire codes are ignored - not just for the unhoused but for those occupying the property of concern
Adriana De La Cruz
02:11:38
its a clearance - very minimal distance at best
Tony Wilkinson
02:11:50
Personally, I'm going to vote no because of the tents prohibition
Jennifer Goodie
02:12:18
Nina, I was appointed by my NC to represent their interests. From attending our meetings and seeing how we vote on things and how our discussions go, I have a good feel for how my NC would vote. This particular item was also discussed in committee meeting a couple days ago.
Lauren Buisson

https://www.npr.org/2019/12/16/788435163/supreme-court-wont-hear-case-to-ticket-homeless-for-sleeping-in-public-spaces
Jennifer Goodie
02:12:56
Personally, I would vote yes, but voting for my NC, I would have to vote no
Adriana De La Cruz
02:13:38
It applies to materials stored as well as equipment and forklifts and combustible materials, not necessarily directed towards the unhoused
Tony Wilkinson
02:13:51
Jennifer, you are free here to vote as you choose. We are voting as individuals, not as NC representatives
Tony Wilkinson
02:14:45
LANCC only has a one vote per NC rule to assure geographic diversity
Jennifer Goodie
02:14:56
I always vote how I feel my NC would want to vote since I am here representing them
Tony Wilkinson
02:15:09
That is your right also
Cord Thomas
02:15:24
Tony - aren’t we meant to represent our NC?
Cord Thomas
02:15:42
I have been confused about that on all alliances, coalitions, etc.
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:16:10
I can't vote on this today because all my NC's are present today but this is why I have been advocating taking over all municipal ⛳ golf courses for homeless camping because of the extensive sprinkler system that would help mitigate fires in tent encampments!
Tony Wilkinson
02:16:31
Alliances are not supra-legislatures. The NC appointment of reps is to honor NC ability not to have crazies saying they represent the NC interests
Keren Waters-VP GHNNC
02:17:00
The Getty and Sepulveda wildfires were caused by fires from homeless encampments.
Jennifer Goodie
02:17:02
I am both crazy and representing :D
Cord Thomas
02:17:15
More anecdotes, no data
Tony Wilkinson
02:17:17
Me too. A kindred soul!!!
Lauren Buisson
02:17:28
Absent data, numbers who refuse adequate housing is a feeling not a fact.
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:17:34
No body wants to live that lifestyle they are forcing people to get sobber first!
Lauren Buisson
02:17:53
Shelters are not housing
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:18:56
Housing before sobriety is what is needed!
David Uebersax
02:19:01
How you represent your NC in voting here is subject to the policy enunciated by your board, ideally, as part of their Motion to appoint LANCC Reps and alternates
Cord Thomas
02:19:05
I am 10000% for housing for everyone. I am tired of hearing people speak figures for those that refuse housing - that’s pure nonsense.
Tony Wilkinson
02:19:18
Its not about improving the shelter. It's about sober first instead of housing first, plus SOME (5% ??) ARE service resistant. To say NONE are is not realistic.
Cord Thomas
02:19:34
Thanks David on representation
David Uebersax
02:19:40
Yup
David Uebersax
02:20:45
When LANCC has staff (as if...or if I retire) we'll have our roster in a cloud, with links to nominating motions
Tony Wilkinson
02:21:19
There is no economic ability to build those low income units. FACT. Unhoused will be a permanent issue until a source of funding is found.
Lauren Buisson
02:21:26
Tiny Homes in NoHo was at near capacity. The site doesn't yet accept couples, or families (spaces too small) but does allow pets.
Keren Waters-VP GHNNC
02:21:49
My police officers advised that there are unhoused people who have bank accounts and/or trusts, The are substance abusers who were kicked out by their families. Needs meaning desire to abuse drugs and alcohol is unacceptable.
Lauren Buisson
02:22:01
No, Liz, I personally saw the storage lockers.
Terrence Gomes
02:22:49
I thought NoHo was two beds a tiny home and couple were welcomed from the promo video I watched.
Tony Wilkinson
02:22:58
Most unhoused folks live near their traditional home and friends, but on the streets.
Terrence Gomes
02:22:58
couples
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:23:13
Give the homeless the best most beautiful areas in LA to camp in so they can breath & have open space ⛳
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:24:42
In Vegas the homeless live in tunnels for flood mitigation!
Tony Wilkinson
02:24:48
Alvin is right. "Service resistant" is nogt root cause. It starts with ECONOMICS. After many months on the street despir leads to drug, arcohol and other issues.
Tony Wilkinson
02:25:04
sry for typos
Lauren Buisson
02:25:19
At the NoHo tiny homes site in Valley Village. There are 2 beds Terry but that would be really tight, and the site is not set up to accommodate couples with children. BTW, all toilets, showers are in separate trailers. Supportive services and security are on site.
Tony Wilkinson
02:25:45
Land costs do not support many more tiny homes sites.
Lauren Buisson
02:26:13
Tony -- this was on City property.
David Uebersax
02:27:16
CD3 Blumenfield is highlighting several Mini developments in pipelines, in addition to the Bridge facility in Canoga Park
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:27:43
Tony, there are no land costs if imminent domain is used, but we all know CC and the Mayor do not have the guts to do something that radical…
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:28:07
well…maybe fair compensation…I walk that back
Tony Wilkinson
02:28:39
Imminent domain require market rate compensation to owners.
Terrence Gomes
02:28:48
They selected the site because of it odd, unusable shape. There are other properties that they city owns that can be used. The CLAs report lists them.
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:29:07
Thanks to everyone here for putting on your thinking caps & remembering that the homeless are our neighbors & not criminals to be persecuted by hastily written motions 🤔
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:29:31
Indeed david
Alvin Waters Jr
02:32:52
Im noticing an uptick in the RVs under the underpasses in the valley as well as LA. Im sure there is a correlation between this and the major cutbacks in the city due to COVID.
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:32:55
You got it right Glenn
Keren Waters-VP GHNNC
02:33:21
When are the next Planning 101 sessions? We have 2 other board members who need to complete the training.
Jennifer Goodie
02:33:32
I still don't understand what problem Raquel thinks she is fixing by seating everyone at once
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:35:20
We got our…it’s outside of our boundaries and is at lease 2 miles from our closest boundary line
Laura Meyers
02:35:27
"Some" of the ballot boxes. UNNC asked to utilize a particular location, which has a box, and we were denied.
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:35:28
unacceptable
Jennifer Goodie
02:35:35
Same Rachael
Laura Meyers
02:36:00
I sent a rather, um, nasty email -- to no avail.
Jennifer Goodie
02:36:12
Our elections committee is asking for multiples to make up for them not being inside our boundaries
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:37:16
This Election Policy is insanity!!! There must never be a lame 🦆 duck session for the old boards interference to effect the new board that are chosen by the people! We just have to look at what happened in the National Elections for proof of potential shananagens that could effect new boards!
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:37:25
Planning 101 sessions have been added to Cornerstone…
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:37:38
check with your DONE rep
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:38:02
Raquel was at ARC last Tuesday with an update
Laura Meyers
02:38:06
They picked for UNNC a ballot box where there is no parking and not good access to public transit. We wanted the ballot box located at the Washington Irving Library, Washington Blvd and Crenshaw. Our northern area is the one zoned multi-family, more likely to be transit-challenged and certain car-challened. Should have been a no-brainer. But we were flatly denied.
Jennifer Goodie
02:39:05
Our southern boundary is the 10 and ours is all the way down off of Obama
Laura Meyers
02:39:15
July 1, 2023, by the way, is a Saturday.
Keren Waters-VP GHNNC
02:40:13
Yes Tony!
Glenn Bailey
02:40:56
The Northridge East NC Ballot Drop Box address provided by the City Clerk was a quarter-mile from the actual location. No voter will ever find it. Check the accuracy of your Drop Box location!!!
Laura Meyers
02:41:16
Jennifer, one positive: I think our elections administrator said people are not locked into one box. So while I am pissy that UNNC's official location is Jefferson Blvd. and 3rd Avenue, I think other NC stakeholders can use it if it is more convenient. I just don't think it is more convenient because there is very little parking. We may be asking the church across the street to make their parking lot available.

Yes Tony Raquel is wonderful & very rare but on the Election initiation she is dead wrong!
Jack Humphreville
02:44:20
Raquel has lost the trust and confidence of many NCs.
Nina Royal
02:45:05
yes, I agree with Lydia! No confidence in the neutrality of DONE!!
Adriana De La Cruz
02:46:26
So did both get Fired then? a cover up? Hmm
Adriana De La Cruz
02:46:37
both are now gone per Glenn
Tony Wilkinson
02:48:09
PLEASE come to the CONGRESS meeting at 1:30 pm and weigh in on the issue of reworking the leadership and offices (whichever side you may take). https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87694259086?pwd=Q0RyOGx1SDI4YnFyNUNxY0dDd2s2UT09
Jack Humphreville
02:48:31
It is impossible to fire anybody who works for the City..
Rachael Rose Luckey (RVNC)
02:49:55
At ARC Raquel said more than once that the seating change as been requested by many NCs. For me, if an NC wants to seat their board after the fiscal year, then they should change their bylaws…
Nina Royal
02:52:03
the grievance system is partial and political and his being used as a campaign tool by the President of our Council and it can be proven that she lies!

Nina Royal
02:55:37
The Congress is INDEPENDENT of DONE and should not be under it’s Jurisdiction It is wrong for,them to interfere!!.
Laura Meyers
02:55:56
Thanks, still doesn't excuse arbitrary denials of other existing County ballot boxes.
Laura Meyers
02:57:43
Another refusal from the Clerk: we asked the clerk to give a "welcome letter" to UNNc candidates (because some of ours are not on our email list -- so they may not even know about our meetings). "Welcome to the UNNC family" -- and the Clerk said "no" -- not until the end of March. We don't want their email addresses, we asked the clerk to pass along a memo.
Keren Waters-VP GHNNC
02:57:55
I have asked 3 times for the information. We are hosting a virtual meet and greet and still do not have the contact information for the new candidates!
Lauren Buisson
02:58:07
We got our lists and have had our first candidates' forum. O
Tony Wilkinson
02:58:50
I'm back. Had a local power event...
Cindy Cleghorn
02:59:22
we received our candidate list. not all have contact info.
Velinda&DavidRockello(they/them)RVNC,EPNC,HCNNC
02:59:56
What could come next is if you don't drop your ballots in the correct drop box they could do voter supression & through out your vote because you didn't follow instructions correctly!
Tony Wilkinson
03:01:02
I have a Rule committee agenda that says attempts to control Board member free speech and behavior are a threat to the entire NC system. Look under Rules Committee at https://parnoramacitnc.org
Tony Wilkinson
03:02:33
Also have an "Open House" for NC candidates (anywhere) and volunteers at 6:00 pm every Friday in March. Link is https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/296256549

I heard you can drop your ballot in any box in your region.
Tony Wilkinson
03:03:17
Only one box will be in use. Other county boxes will be locked
Glenn Bailey
03:03:25
Yes only within your Region for NCs that have same Election Day.
Tony Wilkinson
03:03:45
You can drop ballot in any of the boxes withing your region, yues.
Glenn Bailey
