1. LT GENERATORS – 15% DISCOUNT
HWPOA has negotiated a 15% discount on all generators sold by LT Generators. Residents have been receiving occasional postcards from LT Generators over the past two years. The company is knowledgeable and has a variety of generators available. They automatically switch from gas to propane if an earthquake triggers an automatic shut off of gas.

Please call Andrew at 818-787-1470 and identify yourself as a resident of Holmby Westwood to get the discount. Valid until September 30, 2016.

2. VANDALISM REPORT
A resident on the 700 block of Beverly Glen reported that overnight on June 12 (or early morning June 13), an egg was thrown at their front door.
3. SUPPORT GAYLEY AVE. BIKE LANE AMENDMENT
The Mobility Plan – The Holmby Westwood Board of Directors voted to support the Gayley/Midvale bike path from Wellworth to LeConte because it is safer for cyclists, first responders, and cars. Westwood Blvd. carries 940 buses and 29,000 car trips daily and creates significant congestion on the street.
Please send an email of support to the City Planning Commission before the public hearing on June 23.
Please cut and paste the letter below into an email and include your name at the end of the letter.

Support Gayley Ave. Bike Lane Amendment
The Hon. David Ambroz, President
Los Angeles City Planning Commission
RE: SUPPORT MP 2035 AMENDMENT TO SUBSTITUTE MIDVALE/GAYLEY AVENUE BIKE LANE FOR WESTWOOD BOULEVARD BIKE LANE (JUNE 23, 2016 PUBLIC HEARING)
Dear President Ambroz and Commissioners:
I support Councilmember Koretz’s amendment to replace the Westwood Boulevard bike lane with Gayley/Midvale. The alternative is just a block away and much safer for cyclists, first responders, and will not slow the 940 daily buses carrying over 35,000 bus riders each day.

4. PURPLE LINE CONSTRUCTION NOTICE
