1. LAPD CRIME REPORT
BURGLARY (entry of structure w/intent to commit theft or a felony)
Incident #: 170817022
200 BLOCK CONWAY AV | 10/13/2017 @ 4:00 PM
Security Cameras and Video Surveillance
LAPD is now recommending homeowners install and use camera devices from companies like Ring and Nest, or devices offered by your security company, that send you a message on your smart phone whenever a person has entered a programmed zone.
HWPOA is not recommending any one system over another, or over the system you currently have, but like the LAPD, we do believe these new innovations have many benefits to homeowners who want to know what’s going on at their property when they’re home and away. Of particular use are the motion alerts which allow you to view on your browser or smartphone specific occurrences without watching hours of video.
2. DOG OWNER ETIQUETTE
HWPOA has recently received several complaints regarding dogs and dog owners:
Keep Dogs on a Leash
For the safety of your neighbors, children and other dogs, please keep your dog on a leash at all times when you are outside of your home. We have had several past reports of dog attacks in the neighborhood, injuring both people and dogs. Please follow the law and keep your dog on a leash.
Use Your Own Trash Bins
While everyone appreciates that you are picking up dog waste, please dispose of it in your own trash bin. Please be respectful and do not use your neighbors’ bins.
Thank you for your cooperation.
3. SHRUBS BLOCKING SIDEWALKS – PLEASE TRIM
Throughout the neighborhood, many shrubs and hedges have become overgrown. Some are encroaching on the sidewalk, making the sidewalk narrow and difficult to navigate.
If your bushes, shrubs or hedges are overgrown and blocking the sidewalk, please trim them as soon as possible. Thank you.
4. UCLA STUDENT HOUSING PROJECTS
UCLA is proposing to develop student housing at five different sites including:
- Lot 15 (near Veteran)
- Warren Hall (near Weyburn Place)
- University Extension building (at LeConte/Gayley)
- Bradley (at Gayley/Strathmore)
- Drake Stadium (over the concourse)
These projects will add a combined 6,900 beds to undergraduate and graduate student housing.
