LOS ANGELES CITY HALL JOURNAL

April 22, 1993|LEE HARRIS

A summary of significant Los Angeles City Hall decisions affecting the Westside in the last week.

CITY COUNCIL

CHILD CARE: Approved an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District to allow a child-care facility to be operated at 804 Broadway in Venice, which is school district property. The agreement allows NYA, a nonprofit organization, to operate the facility at no rental cost.

DENIAL: Denied a conditional use permit to open a restaurant at 8001 W. Melrose Ave. because of inadequate on-site parking. Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky, who represents the area, said he could not approve the request of the applicant because there "simply is not enough room for parking." He added, "We already have a lot restaurants in the Melrose area."

ETHNIC UNDERSTANDING: Approved a proposal by Councilman Michael Woo to promote "greater understanding and appreciation of the Asian Pacific American experience." As part of the proposal, the Asian Pacific American community will present special events and programs during the month of May explaining its heritage. About $920 in fees for banners announcing the events was also waived.

HOW THEY VOTED

How Westside representatives voted on selected issues.

SETTLEMENT: Approved spending $462,000 to settle a lawsuit brought by the wife of an 81-year-old man who was injured when his car was struck from behind by a city employee driving a city trash truck. The accident occurred in September, 1991, at the intersection of Fairfax Avenue and Pico Boulevard. The man was stopped for a signal. PASSED: 10-0.

VOTING YES: Ruth Galanter, John Ferraro and Yaroslavsky.

ABSENT: Marvin Braude, Nate Holden, Mark Ridley-Thomas and Woo.
