Jacquelyn Temple

I recently discovered that NO mail was being picked up by the carriers from a building at the corner of Sutro and W. 42nd Street...it's in an 'updated' mailbox that is installed for the use of the tenants, but a lot of us in the area have also been using it.

Hey! I recently reached out to the post to make sure things wouldn't be stuck at their centers. They did state that they are obligated to send all mail out on the day they are received. They are not allowed to hold mail at their centers in any way. So taking your mail to the actual post office may help.

How will the sale of the mall affect the proposed housing in that area? You also said retail in the mall will be changed forever. Doesn't sound like a good thing.

Thanks Ernest....that is what I thought and thus I am trying to understand the goal for trying to secure and build on those lots when parking for the theatre can't be lost.
Lamont Cobb

Is there a chart of monies needed for all of the various elements that are being sought to be developed in the area: Vision Theatre, the Conference Center, hotel, Destination Crenshaw, etc. On top of it there is the desire to have developers invest in redos/upgrades of the Baldwin Hills shopping center. Each of these and more requires a big dollar investment. For the area do you have an idea what that price tag is?
Misty fr Leimert
02:03:44
yes terry unlocked it. thanks

Kaya Dantzler
02:08:14
Is there an online petition available for people to sign?
iPad
02:08:19
Thank you Roland Wiley for being a leader, our voice, and motivator. my question is what do we do with the homelessness that has a negative impact on our beautification reject. I feel for them but our prosperities and communities are devalued. the tents and old RVs and bus stops homes have taken over but they have no where to live. under the Freeways and street that i do not walk in my community. you also made a comment that if we don’t develop our communities that other cultures will and we all know the Chinese are always doing development projects as they have primarily own Africa and the Lebanese own retail in Africa so LA is next.
Carla Mays
02:09:04
COVID19 recovery & opportunity funding is critical
Jacquelyn Temple
02:09:09
The ELECTEDS are so busy playing political musical chairs, and trying to maintain the spots they have occupied for 20 or more years...with NOTHING SIGNIFICANT being done that benefits the community, in the LONG run!
Carla Mays
02:09:51
The Master Plan must be updated
Carla Mays
02:10:09
To reflect this vision
Gail Molen
02:10:14
@Jacquelyn & Carla: AMEN!
Charmaine Jefferson
02:10:23
As you talk about the significance of Leimert Park and the Crenshaw Corridor it would be useful to point out that it should include the significant build out that West Angelus did and that includes building housing;. The Lula Washington Dance Theatre is a property owner; The Sentinel on Crenshaw; Angelus Mortuary. The point is that if you acknowledge the takeover of the Crenshaw, Baldwin, View Park, Windsor and Leimert Park Communities from the early 60's this is building upon our push back gainst restrictive covenants and we have held on even with ups and downs. These are existing strong rooted entities as well as those that are in Leimert Park now that have come in new and those that have existed for more than 30 or more years. Don't sell the total story short. This area of investing in Leimert Park can feel anchored and further supported by a long history.....don't leave that out....it is passing the baton in strength not the start of the race.
Carla Mays
02:12:00
The Master Plan, COVID19 Recovery & Opportunity Funding, and YIMBY must be mitigated
Feliz Mc Innis
02:12:17
African people need to be a part of the conversation. James, will you insure that the continent will be included?
Carla Mays

Jacquelyn Temple
02:12:34
YES to the petition online...and if there is a designated person to report back to us about the responses/results that we receive from the petition...TALK IS CHEAP, WE NEED TO SEE SOME ACTION, accompanied by REAL commitments from the ELECTEDS???

Michael Banner
02:14:08
Will the proposed Master Plan require approval by the City of Los Angeles? The USC University
Ernest Dillihay
02:14:35
It is about the corridor and the linkages with all the aforementioned. The plan should be inclusive, Think Disney Metrorail, Ben Cadlwell's Cars, e.g. Wakanda effect but for real. The entire corridor is The Village, but connected resources.
Carla Mays
02:14:54
We need plans to reflect this vision with dollars

California Endowment needs to seed fund
Charmaine Jefferson
02:24:55
If you want to attract all of the home owners in Leimert, Windsor, Baldwin, View, etc. to participate in the Leimert Park facilities, might need to create shuttle type services that can move people in and out of those areas so that they won't get in their cars but can feel like they can get to the sites. They are not going to pay $100 to a show and walk up and down the hills to get there. Finding some key neighborhood "shuttle" type spots to get back and forth between the Leimert Village hub would make it equally as attractive and viewed as a sustainable footprint. this same shuttle service could also connect to the Wellington Sq, Lafayette Sq areas where we also live and it would allow attracting even wider audiences without the use of their cars. Need this at least until LA's metro system gets even more elaborate.
