1. STREET REPAIR REQUESTS – FINAL REMINDER
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 August 30, 2017.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Tuesday, August 15. Please only send street repair requests, not sidewalks or curbs.
2. CONSTRUCTION HOURS
We have received comments from concerned neighbors regarding construction noise outside of the permitted construction hours. If you are doing any sort of construction on your home, please be sure to follow the Los Angeles Municipal Code rules:
41.40 LAMC- Construction Noise
Allowable Construction Hours:
- Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
- Saturdays and National Holidays between 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
- Sundays, no construction except by residents in their own home
