We will continue to work to include additional streets to the approved list and we will let you know if we get more information.
4. FOCUS GROUP: ALCOHOL IN WESTWOOD
A public health agency (Institute for Public Strategies, www.publicstrategies.org) funded by the LA County Department of Public Health is conducting focus groups and needs 20 Westwood residents to participate. It will be an easy, casual and completely anonymous conversation about alcohol’s impact in Westwood, particularly as it relates to the retail alcohol environment. The focus groups will last 1.5 hours and will be hosted at a convenient Westwood location. Participants will receive a $25 Target card as a thank you.
