1. SHORT TERM RENTALS – SURVEY & MEETING
The Department of City Planning would like to invite you to an upcoming community listening session they are holding on the issue of short-term rentals, sometimes known as home sharing or vacation rentals (such as AirBNB). Short term rental is generally defined as a residence or room that is rented to a visitor or guest for less than 30 days.
The meeting will be an opportunity to learn about the issue and provide input that will help shape the City’s regulations regarding short terms rentals.
Also, to help them better understand the various ideas and concerns about short term rentals, they have prepared a short questionnaire. Copies will be available at the listening sessions as well.

2. DROUGHT-TOLERANT PARKWAY LANDSCAPING
In an effort to save water during the drought, HWPOA formed a committee recently to research alternative landscaping options for neighborhood parkways (the strip of grass/plants between the sidewalk and the street). The committee has completed their research, and their recommendations can be found here:
Please note, it is still important to water the trees on your parkway. Trees still need water, even in the drought, and can die or become unsafe if not cared for properly. A tree on Beverly Glen recently fell over as a result of not being properly watered.
3. LAPD COMMUNITY ALERT
Our LAPD Senior Lead Officer Chris Ragsdale has asked us to circulate this request for help in the LAPD’s investigation of a fire on Roebling in the North Village on Monday, in which a 4th-year UCLA student died.
