I just wanted to clarify, regarding the Vision, if the motion passes, DCA would not be managing the space as we are currently doing with the other City-owned theatres I mentioned.

Dina Andrews
01:37:06
How many blocks is that? And where is it?
Ignite Daniel
01:37:23
There already isn’t enough parking for the barber shops across the street and you’re going to extend the sidewalk?
Officer Paul Evleth, LAPD Southwest Community Relations
01:37:25
Stanley or Edgar, can you please show what the alley side looks like as far as a fence? 4252 Crenshaw has a “see through” fence which seems to help because it provides visibility. Is this what you are referring to when you say “open area”? Also, is there a secure area for the trash containers to help prevent issues?
Tracey Brown
01:38:10
how is COVID affecting builders with millions unemployed. how do y’all continue to move forward
13233
01:39:01
we want you to be responsible for the alley where your building resides

01:43:11

Gwen
01:43:46
What is the parking for so many units?
Officer Paul Evleth, LAPD Southwest Community Relations
01:43:54
Can the tenant lease agreement include a clause that tenants are not allowed to place unwanted furniture / bulky items in the alley? This is an ongoing problem.
Dina Andrews
01:44:01
@Ignite Daniel, FYI - You are correct, parking for the businesses on Crenshaw is really challenging. In an effort to restore the parking on the CD8/West side of the street I met with CLAX Metro executives a couple of weeks ago to ask them how they can restore the parking for businesses asap. They are to report back to me next week. Its not a lot of parking, but its some.
Edmond Warren
01:44:06
I believe 60 parking spots
13233
01:44:11
agree about parking
13233

@ Tracey Brown. There is no moratorium's on construction. Construction is exempt, and still working.

01:47:21
will there be any cameras installed?

13233
01:47:42
lol
Ignite Daniel
01:47:49
@Dina, Thank You because I do hair in a couple of those barber shops and we were completely ignored when they came in and took our parking for our customers just to turn around and ticket everyone like crazy
devon williams
01:47:49
what’s the name of the group managing this project ?
13233
01:48:13
that sucks
Andraya W
01:48:37
that parking situation is an issue. Every new apartment bulding coming up is not providing enough parking. It's great that you want to add retail spaces. but all this lack of parking will move into our neighborhoods from apartments, shopping and train riders
Dina Andrews
01:48:39
Will tenants have to pay additional for their parking? That could impact whether or not they opt in for parking.
Ignite Daniel
01:49:03
How does 15% of the apartments being allocated to low income help serve the High Demand of Affordable Housing in This Area?
Nick Hill
01:49:12
estimated rent prices for non low income units.
Robert Sausedo
01:49:19
The information shared about a labor dispute with Africa Town is incorrect. We had a personnel matter that was not favorable for some. We continue to provide employment with 107 satisfied employees and find it unfortunate that some would attempt to discredit the valuable services we provide throughout South Los Angeles to include Leimert Park. Unfortunately there seems to be a few people who find it necessary to allow there recalcitrance to create a false narrative about issues and circumstances that are beyond the scope of their individual involvement. With respect to local businesses having issues with Community Build Inc., This is again another false narrative. The extent of our interaction with local businesses is limited to our work with the business improvement district and our survey data from the many care calls our team makes indicates a high level of satisfaction. Once again another false narrative from a few whose goal is to act on a compulsion to divide and conquer.
Gwen
01:49:19
who is the artist for the mural?
13233
01:49:28
the parking also brings up safety issues
13233
01:49:33
amen
Dina Andrews
01:50:35
That could be an issue. As an example, some landlords charge an additional $100.00 per month for parking. Most people can not afford that who live in this area.
13233
01:51:04
good point sir/mam
Dina Andrews
01:51:11
Did I miss the apartment rent range?
devon williams
01:51:42
I mean they talked a little about affordable housing 😅
13233
01:51:48
if its not around 900.00 it's terrible

@13233 you funny.

Officer Paul Evleth, LAPD Southwest Community Relations

Will the developer have an “anti-graffiti” protective coating on any walls subject to vandalism?

Gwen
01:53:46
Also, is there laundry in each unit?
devon williams
01:55:06
and maintain it
Patrice Fisher
01:55:29
You must have used a leasing figure to cost out the project. What figures did you use?
13233
01:55:56
does it include set asides for the unfortunate homeless community member W/hopeful section 8
Ignite Daniel
01:56:14
It sounds like you came in to the neighborhood under the impression you would be helping but it’s simply for financial gain..

Andraya W
01:59:30
Of course it's financial gain, we can't make that an issue unless we're developing our own structures. it's great to incorporate the building to fit in with our community per the colors and local murals. But please focus on the parking issue as the more developers that come in and build on this street, the more traffic and less parking we will have in our quiet and peaceful neighborhood of leimert
Ignite Daniel
01:59:33
Will look for it and share y’all!
