1. CONSTRUCTION NOISE
This is a reminder to please adhere to the law regarding construction noise.
LIMITS ON CONSTRUCTION NOISE
Contractors generating any construction noise are restricted by law to the following days and times:
- NO Construction noise allowed on Sundays,
- Monday through Friday, construction noise is allowed between 7:00 am and 9:00 pm
- Saturdays and National Holidays, construction noise is allowed between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm
2. STREET REPAIR REQUESTS
The Bureau of Street Services has scheduled a Small Asphalt Repairs (SAR) truck (which is described as 1 small asphalt repair truck, consisting of 2 workers and asphalt), for the Westwood Neighborhood Council area, to perform small asphalt repairs on March 14, 2016.
The type of repairs that can be addressed with this program include the following:
– Potholes and pop outs
– Skin patching of eroded or cracked areas
– Some repairs on concrete streets
The Westwood Neighborhood Council has asked us to submit suggested locations in our neighborhood for small street repairs. The city will only send the SAR truck to a total of 15 locations in the entire Westwood Neighborhood Council area, so Holmby Westwood will only see a handful of repairs.
If you are aware of any spots in our neighborhood that would be particularly good candidates for this program, please send requests to Dana at email@example.com no later than February 28. Please only send street repair requests, not sidewalks or curbs.
3. PARKING PERMIT REMINDER
If you live on a street that has parking by permit only, please be sure to purchase guest permits whenever you have guests, gatherings/parties, on weekends, etc. Cars without permits will be ticketed by parking enforcement.
In addition, please be sure that you and your guests do not block your neighbors’ driveways. Thank you for your courtesy.
4. CONGRESSIONAL ART COMPETITION
From the Office of Congressman Ted Lieu:
The Congressional Art Competition is a national competition that recognizes and encourages artistic talent in high school students. Students submit their original art piece to their representative and a panel of art professionals select the winning entry. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington D. C. The winning works are displayed for one year in the U. S. Capitol. More details about the competition can be found here: http://www.house.gov/content/educate/art_competition/
This year the competition for our congressional district is taking place on Saturday April 16, 2016 at the Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. CLICK HERE for submission details. For a student to be eligible, they must either live or attend school in our district.
