Amigos y amigas,

Esta fue una semana corta, pero sustanciosa. Alcanzamos un gran logro para preservar la vivienda asequible cuando el Concilio confirmó mi uso del dominio eminente y ordenó al Departamento de Inversión Comunitaria y de Vivienda que comenzara la evaluación de los Apartamentos Hillside Villa en Chinatown para que la Ciudad los compre. Este es el primer paso importante para que la Ciudad ofrezca a los dueños actuales un precio justo por su propiedad. Cuando se compre, la Ciudad continuará protegiendo a cientos de familias que han llamado hogar a Hillside Villa en los últimos treinta años.

Ante la llegada del 4 de julio, reitero que todos los fuegos artificiales en la ciudad de Los Ángeles son ilegales. Ponen en riesgo de un posible incendio a nuestros vecindarios: Desde nuestras áreas de laderas hasta los vecindarios densos con grandes edificios de apartamentos como Pico-Union/Westlake y Temple-Beaudry.

Si tiene una queja visite aquí para hacer un reporte sobre fuegos artificiales ilegales. También pueden aprovechar mi Programa de Entrega Voluntaria de Fuegos Artificiales, a través del cual, puede llevar fuegos artificiales ilegales a una estación de policía y nadie le hará preguntas. Vea información en el siguiente volante.

Desafortunadamente, los casos de COVID-19 se han disparado en el condado de Los Ángeles y en California. Tenemos que dar un paso atrás y cerrar el servicio al interior de restaurantes, bodegas y salas de degustación, gimnasios, cines, zoológicos, museos y casas de juegos durante las próximas tres semanas. Todas las playas estarán cerradas del 3 al 6 de julio.

Les deseo a todos un feliz fin de semana del 4 de Julio que celebra al Día de la Independencia de los Estados Unidos. Es fundamental que celebremos de manera segura ya que su salud es mi máxima prioridad. Evite las multitudes, los espacios cerrados y el contacto personal cercano. Si está enfermo, permanezca aislado. Use mascarilla de tela cuando esté fuera de su casa y cerca de otros, desinfecte los artículos que toca con frecuencia y lávese o desinfecte las manos con frecuencia.

Sinceramente,

Gil Cedillo

Por favor reporte fuegos artificiales ilegales

Es vital que los fuegos artificiales ilegales no se detonen, porque amenaza la vida, seguridad y pertenencias de nuestros residentes en todo el Distrito 1. Desde las laderas susceptibles del noreste de Los Ángeles ante la próxima temporada de incendios hasta los vecindarios densamente poblados como Pico-Union, Westlake y Temple-Beaudry, los fuegos artificiales ilegales podrían provocar un desastre. Por eso son inaceptables y peligrosos, sin importar dónde vivamos. Reporte fuegos artificiales ilegales usando este formulario o llamando al (877) ASK-LAPD  (877) 275-5273.

TRABAJANDO PARA TI

Gil Photo at Council 7-1-2020

Esta semana, el Concejal Cedillo presentó nuevas mociones para buscar más fondos para viviendas asequibles en el Distrito 1, así como para mejoras al puente peatonal Cypress Park y trabajos de limpieza en Albion Riverside Park.

El complejo habitacional West Third Apartments cuenta con 137 unidades, de las cuales, 136 han sido destinadas a viviendas asequibles y de apoyo desde hace 57 años. Para asegurar el éxito del proyecto, el concejal está tratando de asignar nuevos fondos para reemplazar los fondos de HHH, para que, a su vez, esos recursos se utilicen mejor en otros lugares. Las nuevas fuentes de financiamiento para el proyecto permitirán que la obra sea mas grande, para que más residentes del Distrito 1 cuenten con el apoyo y refugio que necesitan para levantarse de nuevo.

Preservando viviendas asequibles en riesgo en Chinatown

Esta semana, el Concilio respaldó al Concejal Cedillo para preservar viviendas asequibles "en riesgo" en Chinatown. El Concilio votó por unanimidad para aprobar un acuerdo entre la Ciudad y los propietarios de Grand Plaza Senior Apartments para extender por otros 30 años la asequibilidad de las unidades que alojan a personas de la tercera edad de bajos ingresos, protegiéndolos del desalojo de por vida.

El Concilio también afirmó que el uso del dominio eminente es legal para preservar la vivienda asequible. El Concilio ordenó al Departamento de Vivienda e Inversión Comunitaria que comenzara la evaluación de los Apartamentos Hillside Villa para que la Ciudad los compre. Este es el primer paso importante que permitirá a la Ciudad ofrecer a los dueños actuales, un precio justa por su propiedad; Cuando se compre, la Ciudad continuará protegiendo a cientos de familias que han llamado hogar a Hillside Villa en los últimos treinta años. La Ciudad inició la evaluación de la propiedad de los Hillside Villa Apartments  de 124 unidades como primer paso del proceso.

“En medio del aumento de casos de COVID-19, los legisladores de Los Ángeles acordaron el miércoles que no reanudarán la emisión de multas durante el barrido de calles cuando menos hasta agosto. El Concilio Municipal votó 13 a 1 para extender las disminuidas reglas de estacionamiento de Los Ángeles, que entraron en vigencia en marzo cuando se impuso por primera vez la orden de Mas Seguro en Casa. La ciudad no multará a los autos que estén estacionados en las horas pico y en zonas anti-estancamiento o en áreas residenciales durante el barrido de calles hasta el 1 de agosto, dijeron las autoridades. Los oficiales de estacionamiento tampoco multarán a los vehículos con matrícula vencida”.

Friends,

This has been a short week, but a great deal has occurred. We achieved a great milestone to preserve affordable housing when the council affirmed my use of eminent domain and ordered the Housing and Community Investment Department to begin the assessment of the Hillside Villa Apartments in Chinatown for future purchase by the City. This is the critical first step in allowing the City to offer the current owners a fair amount for the property. Once purchased, the City can continue to protect the hundreds of families who have called Hillside Villa home for the last thirty years.

As we approach the 4th of July, I want to reiterate that all fireworks in the City of Los Angeles are illegal. They put all our neighborhoods at risk of a potential fire disaster; from our hillside areas to the dense neighborhoods with large apartment buildings such as Pico Union/Westlake and Temple-Beaudry. Please use this complaint link to report illegal fireworks. Constituents can also take advantage of my Fireworks Take-Back Program, no questions asked, where illegal fireworks can be taken back to a police station listed in the flyer below.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 cases have skyrocketed in Los Angeles County and throughout California. We have to roll back and close indoor restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, entertainment centers, movie theaters, zoos, museums, and card rooms for the next three weeks. And all beaches are closed from July 3rd to 6th.  

I wish all of you a Happy Fourth of July weekend as we celebrate American Independence Day. It is critical that you celebrate safely as your health is my highest priority. Please avoid crowds, confined spaces, and close contact. If you are sick remain isolated from everyone. Wear a cloth covering when outside your home and around others, disinfect frequently touched items and wash or sanitize your hands often.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Please Report Illegal Fireworks

It is critical that illegal fireworks are not detonated, which can threaten the lives, safety, and properties of our residents throughout the first council district. From the susceptible hillsides of Northeast LA with the upcoming fire season to the dense neighborhoods of Pico Union, Westlake, and Temple-Beaudry, where illegal fireworks could spark a disaster, are unacceptable and dangerous to all of us no matter where we live. We ask you to report illegal fireworks using this complaint form or by calling 877-ASK-LAPD - 877-275-5273.

We are being proactive about brush clearance, even offering help with clearance for people who have not done so yet. Brush should have been cleared by June 15th, but we do know that sometimes folks have difficulties getting clearance done, such as seniors, who have been really hard hit during the pandemic. If you know of someone who needs help with brush clearance, please let us know at 213-434-4054 or Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org.

Please take advantage of Councilmember Cedillo's Fireworks Take-Back Program. No questions asked. Take-back illegal fireworks to a police station listed on the second flyer below.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Gil Photo at Council 7-1-2020

This week, Councilmember Cedillo introduced new motions seeking further funding for affordable housing in the First District, as well as motions regarding improvements to the Cypress Park Pedestrian Bridge and cleanup work at Albion Riverside Park.

The West Third Apartments is a 137-unit housing project, with 136 of the units restricted to serving as affordable, supportive housing for 57 years. In order to secure the project's success, the Councilmember is seeking to allocate new funds to replace HHH funding, so that the HHH funding may be better utilized elsewhere. The new funding sources for the project would allow the project to increase in size so that more First District residents can have the support and the shelter they need to get back on their feet.

Preserving At-Risk Affordable Housing in Chinatown

This week, the Council endorsed Councilmember Cedillo's efforts to preserve "at-risk" affordable housing in Chinatown.  The Council unanimously voted to endorse an agreement between the City and owners of Grand Plaza Senior Apartments to extend the affordability of units serving low-income seniors for another 30 years.  The agreement would protect all existing tenants for life. 

The Council also affirmed that the use of eminent domain is legal for purposes of preserving affordable housing.  The Council ordered the Housing and Community Investment Department to begin the assessment of the Hillside Villa Apartments for future purchase by the City. This is the critical first step in allowing the City to offer the current owners a fair amount for the property; once purchased, the City can continue to protect the hundreds of families who have called Hillside Villa home for the last thirty years. The City has initiated a property appraisal of the 124-unit Hillside Villa Apartments as the initial step in the process.

"LISC LA is proud to be selected as a fund administrator to help lead this economic recovery initiative that includes administering loans, grants, technical assistance, and other resources to local entities throughout the LA region," says Tunua Thrash-Ntuk, LISC LA Executive Director. To date, LISC has established its own multi-million-dollar Rapid Relief and Recovery Fund, providing grants ranging from $2,500 to $10,000 for small businesses nationwide.

“Amid a surge in COVID-19 cases, Los Angeles lawmakers said Wednesday that parking officials will not resume writing tickets during street sweeping until August at the earliest. The City Council voted 13 to 1 to extend L.A.'s relaxed parking rules, which took effect in March when the pandemic stay-at-home order was first imposed. The city will not ticket vehicles that are parked in rush-hour and anti-gridlock zones or in residential areas during street sweeping until Aug. 1 at the earliest, officials said. Nor will parking officials ticket vehicles with expired registration.”

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

This week we had the first meeting of the Ad-Hoc Police Reform Committee where I voiced the importance of doing what is right when we are considering changes, as we begin to reimagine public safety. Tackling the homeless remains one of my top priorities as the LA Downtown News recognized our work to exceed the City Council’s pledge to build 222 units of permanent supportive housing as we have built 902 units—680 over the goal, in addition to our 810 existing permanent supportive housing units in the district, being second to the top leading 13 other districts in this effort.

As we approach the 4th of July, my staff has been working closely with LAFD, LAPD, the Neighborhood Prosecutor, and community groups to respond to the dramatic increase in illegal fireworks. As we have for the past three years, we are focusing on education, mitigation of brush on our hillside neighborhoods, and enforcement. Please share the complaint link and flyer that are included in my newsletter this week.

Beginning this week, I will provide you with weekly numbers of COVID-19 infections and deaths by Council District 1 neighborhoods in my newsletter. The numbers are devastating in some of our communities. That is why we must continue to wear cloth face coverings, social distance, wash our hands regularly, and clean surfaces frequently.

This week I introduced a motion seeking to restrict disruption caused by construction in Mount Washington and other hillside areas in the City. The Mount Washington community will benefit from this land use regulatory control inasmuch as it is located in a geographic area that is narrow, often unpaved, and substandard even according to the City’s standards for hillside streets. The expansion of development in this hillside community has and continues to have impacts related to ingress/egress, accessibility, safety, noise, infrastructure, grading, and slope stability.

Councilmember Cedillo speaking on Police Reform at AD-Hoc Police Reform Committee 6-24-2020

Police Reform Doing What Is Right

On Wednesday, during the Ad-Hoc Police Reform Committee, Councilmember Cedillo voiced the importance of doing what is right when we are considering the changes we need to make as we redefine and reimagine the police here in our City.

LA Downtown News: Tackling the City’s Homeless Crisis Remains a Priority for Cedillo

“Tackling the city’s homeless crisis remains a priority for Cedillo. Understanding it takes years to build housing and the thousands of apartment units needed to house every person experiencing homelessness, he knew that it was critical to provide interim shelter and hygiene services in his district to unhoused Angelenos being second to the top leading 13 other districts in this effort.” Survey Shows Rise in Homelessness By Downtown LA News Staff, June 23, 2020

LA Downtown News Also Recognized that Councilmember Cedillo exceeded the City Council’s pledge to build 222 units of permanent supportive housing

Councilmember Cedillo exceeded the City Council’s pledge to build 222 units of permanent supportive housing and has built 902 units—680 over the goal, in addition to the 810 existing permanent supportive housing units, being second to the top leading 13 other districts in this effort.

MARMION_Way Apartments COLLAGE

Councilmember Cedillo strongly advocated the construction of the Marmion Way Apartments, Permanent Supportive Housing in Cypress Park with 49 housing units that combine chronically homeless veterans, families, and affordable units for individuals and families with a preference for formerly homeless veterans. It includes 33 one-bedroom units, 8 two-bedroom units, and 8 three-bedroom units.

Councilmember Cedillo also opened two Safe Parking Programs, one in Glassell Park and one in Westlake, each with 20 spaces that offer a safe place for people living in their vehicles to sleep and get connected to services.  

Responding to Widespread Illegal Fireworks

fireworks-300x255

Councilmember Gil Cedillo, the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD), the Los Angeles Police Department, and the Neighborhood Prosecutor with the Office of the City Attorney, have been working closely together to respond to the dramatic increase in illegal fireworks.

In light of the upcoming fire season, susceptible hillsides of Mt. Washington, Glassell Park, Montecito Heights, Elysian Park, and Solano Canyon; the vulnerability of LAPD’s communications tower; and extreme density of multi-family housing in neighborhoods in Westlake-Pico Union; it is critical that illegal fireworks are not detonated which can threaten the lives, safety, and properties of our residents.

For the last three years, we have been addressing this problem through 1) Education at primarily at local schools and community groups 2) Mitigation by working with LAFD to make sure brush clearance happens in our hillside areas in a timely manner; and 3) Enforcement, by working with LAPD to target blocks where fireworks are happening regularly and using confiscation as well as citations for repeat offenders. We are distributing the educational flyer below. Please use this complaint link shared by the City Attorney's Office and LAPD.

We are being proactive about brush clearance, even offering help with clearance for people who have not done so yet. Brush should have been cleared by June 15th, but we do know that sometimes folks have difficulties getting clearance done, such as seniors, who have been really hard hit during the pandemic. If you know of someone who needs help with brush clearance, please let us know at 213-434-4054 or Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org.

View this PSA on illegal fireworks: People say you should think about your neighbors, children, pets, veterans, and NOT set off illegal fireworks; and they also cause fires.

Fireworks Flyer ENGLISH 6-22-2020

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, Councilmember Cedillo introduced motions to support neighborhood efforts to improve public safety and community benefit. Radio Hill, a small hilltop near Solano Canyon and Chinatown, is a possible fire risk to the neighborhood, and with the site hosting critical radio infrastructure for public safety, it will benefit from improved security to protect the radio mast and the surrounding neighborhoods as well as Elysian Park. Also introduced this week was a motion seeking to restrict disruption caused by construction in Mount Washington and other hillside areas in the City. The effects of street closures and extensive landscaping and regrading work create an extreme disturbance to residential communities on Mount Washington, and the Councilmember is looking forward to the City Planning Department reporting on ways to mitigate these negative effects of construction.

In early May, Mayor Garcetti announced a new program to feed qualified seniors using restaurants across the City and encouraged businesses to apply online. The same night it was announced, Dino and George Pantazis with Dino's Burgers in Lincoln Heights applied. The pool of restaurants was reduced due to State requirements and only a limited number of businesses were offered a contract including Dino's Burgers. Locals enjoy their famous fried chicken plate and pastrami sandwich from a menu with a variety of options. To see this local family-owned restaurant, help feed seniors nutritional meals that are delivered by taxi drivers that experienced work reductions, is a win for everyone. To meet the demand to feed seniors, Dino’s has hired 3 additional staff and retained their original 8 staff, are doing around 3,800 meals a week, and utilize 25 taxi drivers. The program has generated numerous calls from seniors thanking Dino's for their food and once in a while a special request for a famous pastrami sandwich.

ENFORCEMENT

LA Represents


nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

I applaud my colleague Councilman Herb Wesson for introducing a motion to replace LAPD officers with unarmed, non-law enforcement agencies who will be responsible for responding to non-violent calls for service. I joined with him and others to push for further reform of the LAPD and its policies. We demand further clarity on the LAPD's Use of Force and video recording policies, as well as their continued compliance with their own policies.

I am also supporting efforts by my colleagues to push for better Black, Latino, Asian and Indigenous People of Color representation in the LAPD, ensuring that our communities are being safeguarded by people from our communities, fostering collective understanding and deeper connections between the LAPD and our neighbors.

I also want to add Los Angeles' collective voice in support of recent state motions. AB 1950 is a bill that would limit probation for misdemeanors to a 1-year maximum and for felonies to 2 years, and AB 2054, which would expand State programs allowing community organizations to respond to non-life-threatening emergencies. Although these bills bring much-needed new thinking to our criminal justice system, they are merely the first steps in building a more equitable criminal justice system here in California.

The call to “defund and dismantle” the LAPD requires us to redefine what we want police to do, and I know we are taking small steps, but we are taking steps forward in a positive direction. We need to do this right.

As the author of the 2011 California Dream Act (AB 130 and AB 131), which allowed undocumented children to apply for state-funded financial aid and non-state funded scholarships for colleges and universities; the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision rejecting President Trump’s attempt to repeal DACA is great news. The Supreme Court made the right and just decision and reflects the overwhelming popular viewpoint of most Americans.

Our young DACA recipients came to the United States with no fault of their own. They are an example of the vibrancy of immigrants who have come to this country since it was founded; to make a better life for themselves.

I celebrate this decision and congratulate all our Dreamers! 

However, undocumented immigrants who are a cornerstone of our economy, will not be safe from deportation until a comprehensive immigration law with a pathway to citizenship is passed by Congress.

That is why elections matter. We must keep our eyes on the prize, vote, and get others to vote to remove President Trump and a new Senate majority that will finally vote and pass immigration reform. Mr. Trump, you are not my or the Dreamers’ president!

I also want to share with you a story--of what the African American community means to me. It feels like yesterday, when we were in council chambers before the pandemic, honoring our brothers and sisters like we do every year during African-American Heritage Month. Everything I said that day in this video comes from my heart.

Thank you to our trailblazers, thank you to our communities. We are in this together.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Governor Jerry Brown signs AB 130, The California Dream Act authored by then Assemblymember Gil Cedillo on July 27, 2011.

As the author of the 2011 California Dream Act (AB 130 and AB 131), which allowed undocumented children to apply for state-funded financial aid and non-state funded scholarships for colleges and universities, Councilmember Cedillo celebrates the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision rejecting President Trump’s attempt to repeal DACA.

Juneteenth-2020-Celebration

Today, Juneteenth arrives at a moment of change not only in Los Angeles but around the nation. The elemental sermon embedded into the history and lore of Juneteenth has always been one of hope. Juneteenth matters because it inspires resilience to keep going, because the world you want to come into existence can happen, and the future you want is coming.

 

Councilmember Cedillo Celebrates LGBTQ+ Heritage Month

LGGTQ Heritage Month COLLAGE 6-19-2020

Councilmember Cedillo celebrates Pride Month with the LGBTQ+ community. The community has achieved many victories over the years with the most recent being the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Monday that the 1964 Civil Rights Act protects Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender employees from employment discrimination. But much more needs to be done as the White House continues to attack the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. We cannot allow those attacks to continue after November 3rd. We must keep our eyes on the prize!

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, Councilmember Cedillo introduced motions seeking further assistance for rent-burdened and homeless Angelenos. Although City Council has given renters 12 extra months, longer than almost anywhere else in the nation, to repay back rent after the end of the public health emergency, Councilmember Cedillo knows that this may not be enough, and is aiming to strengthen tenant rights and eviction defense measures before it is too late.

Further actions taken this week by the Councilmember include the initial formation of a Civil and Human Rights Department in the City, to support actions taken by the previously established Civil and Human Rights Commission, establishing rules, regulations, and outreach programs to directly address discrimination and inequity in the City of Los Angeles. Councilmember Cedillo also introduced motions seeking to establish a municipal Wi-Fi network to support at-home work and education, continuing operation of a Safe Parking Site in Central City West, and supporting a state bill, AB 2196, that would expand a statewide microloan program that can aid small businesses both during and after the COVID-19-caused public health crisis.

Mayor Garcetti Signs Executive Directive to Study and Promote Racial Equality and Proposes Ballot Measure to Implement Affirmative Action in Contracting if Proposition 209 is Repealed

Mayor Eric Garcetti called for affirmative action in City government and signed an executive directive to study and promote racial equity in City departments. To help lead, coordinate, and drive these efforts, he also named Deputy Mayor Brenda Shockley as L.A.’s first-ever Chief Equity Officer. Mayor Garcetti also proposed a City Charter Amendment on a future ballot to implement affirmative action in City contracting should Proposition 209 be repealed. If passed by city voters, the ballot measure would amend the City Charter language that currently limits the City’s ability to give preferences in awarding contracts.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

The Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) has once again
shown that there is a homelessness crisis in this country and in the City of Los Angeles. According to the 2020 Point-In-Time Homeless Count, there are 41,108 (+13.6% in 2019) homeless individuals in the City of Los Angeles.

I will continue to contribute and exceed my fair share to help solve this housing and homeless crises, but until we address the structural and systemic drivers of increasing housing supply and access and economic injustice from all levels of government and people in leadership positions, we will continue to see our black and brown communities overrepresented in homelessness and economic hardship cited as the number one cause of homelessness. Housing people is good, but preventing homelessness is our calling.

Tackling our City's homeless crisis remains a priority. Understanding it takes years to build housing and the thousands of apartment units needed to house every person experiencing homelessness, I knew that it was critical to provide interim shelter and hygiene services in my district to unhoused Angelenos. 

I exceeded the City Council's pledge to build 222 units of permanent supportive housing and we have built 902 units—680 over the goal, in addition to the 810 existing permanent supportive housing units, being second to the top leading 13 other districts in this effort.

Furthermore, in the early Spring of 2019, I opened A Bridge Home offering 41 beds to single women and women with children in a uniquely designed and decorated home environment, unlike traditional mass shelters that have become a model for the City. In addition, we opened two Safe Parking Programs, one in Glassell Park and one in Westlake, each with 20 spaces that offer a safe place for people living in their vehicles to sleep and get connected to services.  

I have been at the forefront of addressing public health concerns, and the personal welfare of unsheltered residents, providing resources that are unique to my Council District. In 2018, Council District 1 was the first office to partner with The Shower of Hope to launch mobile showers across the district 2 days a week, then in 2019 funded the expansion to five days a week.  Furthermore, in 2019, my office was the first to fund and develop a partnership with The LA Laundry Truck to provide mobile laundry in our district 2 days a week. Most recently, in response to COVID-19, I have funded the expansion of the mobile showers from 5 to 7 days a week and the mobile laundry from 2 to 5 days a week. Today, the mobile showers have 200 guests weekly and the mobile laundry performs 100 loads weekly. 

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo’s Vision is Realized for New LA City Department to Address Racial Inequities in Housing, Education, Employment and Commerce

Capril Maddox

To help fight discrimination in Los Angeles against people of color and other disenfranchised communities, Mayor Garcetti and the city council created a new Department for Civil and Human Rights Issues.

Capri Maddox, the first executive director for the L.A. City Civil and Human Rights Department, joined ABC7 live via Skype to discuss the role of this new department. She stated, "The mayor and city council, particularly Councilmember Gil Cedillo, envisioned this department over a year ago. However, they recently accelerated the start date to address discrimination and systemic racism against people of color and other disenfranchised communities," Maddox said. "Diversity is our strength, but compared to Caucasians, our majority population faces inequities of housing, education, employment, and commerce. And those are the four areas where this new department seeks to address."

Examples of the courses we will offer include:

Animation: Working together with Illumination, the creators of “Despicable Me,” and James Cameron, the award-winning director of “Titanic,” we will help students learn to draw, create animation and share their own stories and to learn about the biology and physics of the deep ocean and underwater exploration on a special voyage of the Titanic.

Environmental Science: This class will prepare students to think globally and act locally. Students will learn about conservation and climate change as they make drawings of the world around them.

Science of Sports: The Los Angeles Chargers are part of a class that will focus on the science, nutrition, and medicine of sports with all sorts of practical advice on a healthy lifestyle.

Space Exploration: The Columbia Memorial Space Center will help with classes about space exploration. Students will learn about astronomy, planets, comets, galaxies, and technology used to explore space.

Music: Fender Guitars is helping to provide the opportunity for 1,500 students to learn to play the guitar or ukulele. Instruments will be provided to students free of charge.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

With flash-bang grenades and tear gas for an introduction, Donald Trump announced yesterday that he is now the “Law and Order President.” Nothing during nearly 41 months of the Trump Administration, however, has been legal or orderly.

Police kill more than 1,000 Americans every year, with higher tolls in Black and Latino communities. George Floyd’s murder at the hands of four Minneapolis officers last week touched a national nerve. Floyd’s last words on a now-viral video – “I can’t breathe” – have become a rallying cry.

Rallies across the country reflect legitimate anger and pain at Floyd’s death, amplified in L.A. and other cities by horrific local police abuses. Looting is not a legitimate response. It distracts and provokes instead of educating and uniting. Every torched building means dozens of lost jobs, just as many employees were planning to return to work.

African Americans’ fight against racism and repression has inspired generations of activists around the world. Angelenos have rallied against police abuse for decades, from Sheriff’s deputies killing newsman Ruben Salazar in 1970 and LAPD officers killing Eulia Love in 1979, to current ICE attacks on immigrants and asylum seekers.

I came of age during the fight for social justice in the 1960s and ‘70s, as did many of my fellow councilmembers and many of you. We kept up the fight during the ‘80s and ‘90s and into the new century. It’s still our fight. We will not flinch when injustice drags down our communities. We will always stand up for what’s right.

History also teaches us to keep our eyes on the prize. We are in an unprecedented fight against the coronavirus. Our lives changed when the pandemic exploded in March. The Council has since focused on this medical and economic crisis.

During the past three months, Covid-19 has claimed hundreds of my District 1 constituents and threatens tens of thousands of others. Unemployment runs rampant from MacArthur Park to Highland Park.

We cannot turn away from the medical fight against the virus or from the political fight to keep working families’ heads above water while we restart the economy.

I learned from years in the labor movement that building solidarity is hard work. It’s easy to get friends to act together; it takes years to unite people from different backgrounds.

L.A. is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and George Floyd’s murder is uniting us all – old and young, men and women, LGBTQ, and a broad spectrum of religions and communities. Our police chief and police union have denounced the four Minneapolis officers’ actions.

This is a national movement, but there can be no decisive victory against police abuse or the coronavirus, much less for social and economic justice unless we dump Trump in the most important presidential election of our lives this fall.

Trump hopes that acting like a strongman will mask three years of disastrous policies. He wants to whip up racial conflict to distract us from the devastating toll of his failed policies on our families and country. We cannot allow that to happen this November 3. We must keep our eyes on the prize!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

P.S. View my 7-minute commentary at Monday's City Council meeting on the fight for justice for George Floyd, and against organized looters trying to exploit this week’s mass public outpouring.

  • They are looters and they are trying to exploit this moment.
  • They are stealing attention from the righteous cause of ending violence against Black men.
  • They are stealing our resources for the fight against Covid-19 and the economic and political crisis.

Mayor Garcetti Reforms

Mayor Garcetti is working to identify $250 million for further investments in community programs, including cuts to LAPD’s budget:

  • Put a moratorium on putting people in the CalGang database and expand the juvenile diversion program to ensure that as few young Angelenos as possible see the criminal justice system.
  • Require officers to intervene when they see the inappropriate use of force and always report misconduct and have more regular departmental training in implicit bias.
  • Expand Community Safety Partnership sites and programs throughout the city to build stronger relationships between officers and the Angelenos they serve.
  • All LAPD officers will complete de-escalation and crowd control training by the end of the year to better support peaceful protests.
  • Expand LAPD’s mental health intervention training program to train a minimum of 900 additional officers this year. 
  • The Police Commission will review our early warning system to better identify problematic behavior and intervene earlier with officers who have exhibited a pattern of high-risk behavior.
  • We will convene our first meeting of the Civil and Human Rights Commission late next week, and set up the Civil and Human Rights Department and its Office of Racial Equity months ahead of schedule.

Friends,

During times of tragedy and uncertainty, we, as a community and as a nation, have never failed to come together and work towards one common goal.  The crisis we face today has no equal in what we have faced before.  Yet again, we have shown the power of community and made it our mission to preserve life.  Because life is irreplaceable, whether they be a stranger or a loved one.  But to lose a loved one's life either to sickness or calamity or for any reason is an unbearable pain that remains for life.  I would like to take this opportunity to send my condolences to the family of George Floyd, a good man whose life was needlessly cut short.  My prayers are with his family. 

In our continued efforts to protect our most vulnerable, Council has unanimously passed my motions to reallocate $250,000 in City funding to provide further economic assistance to the residents of the First District impacted by COVID-19.  It will be used to pay for bills, food, and other necessities.

I am also pleased to be appointed by our great Council President, Nury Martinez, to the newly-formed Ad Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment.  Part of the mission of the Committee is to ensure that hundreds of millions of dollars in federal emergency assistance are allocated to Los Angeles and to prepare the City in addressing critical issues and concerns when the Emergency Orders are lifted, and we move forward towards recovery.   

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

Spectrum News 1 covered Councilmember Gil Cedillo’s Hot Meal Program featuring HomeState - A Texas Kitchen providing free hot meals to families at Para Los Niños Evelyn Thurman Gratts Primary School. Councilmember Cedillo provided grants from his discretionary budget to seventeen non-profit organizations that serve constituents in his district; and they, in turn, selected twenty-five local restaurants in Council District 1 to purchase hot meals. This creative free hot meal program has provided much-needed nourishment to families during these difficult times while providing greatly needed financial support to the frontline workers employed by these restaurants.

Mayor Garcetti at opening of Dodger Stadium Testing Site
5-22-2020

Mayor Eric Garcetti opened a new COVID-19 testing site at Dodger Stadium, with the capacity to test 6,000 Angelenos a day free of charge –– making it three times larger than any other location in L.A. County. COVID-19 testing IS available there to ALL Los Angeles County residents, whether or not you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

The new site will be the 36th across the County. The critical partners who helped make this step possible are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who contributed the space in their stadium parking lot, Community Organized Response Effort (CORE), which is dedicating 60 staff to help operate the site, Live Nation and Red Rock Entertainment, which are donating Jumbotron screens to show videos that walk guests through the process and the Los Angeles Fire Department, which oversees testing site logistics.

Some members of Team Cedillo took advantage of the new Dodger Stadium testing site. Please join us in taking a COVID-19 test.

Testing is by appointment only. Request a test here and visit our FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions.

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced an $11 million economic relief package for small businesses impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital.

The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small. It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans. To apply for a microloan or view the toolkit, please visit lamayor.org/loan.

Amigos y amigas,

Esta semana felicito a estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria por su graduación. Admiro su arduo trabajo y agradezco el apoyo a sus padres, maestros y administradores, ya que nuestros jóvenes son nuestro futuro.

A medida que seguimos las pautas para enfrentar la crisis de salud del COVID-19, lentamente comenzamos a reactivar la economía. Esta semana, el alcalde anunció la apertura de los negocios fijos y móviles de servicios para mascotas; los clientes podrán dejar y recoger a sus mascotas fuera de la tienda. También abrirán todos los lavados de autos; no solo lavados automáticos y de autoservicio. Por supuesto, todos los negocios abiertos deben mantener el protocolo de salud del Condado.

Estos negocios se han abierto porque como comunidad, mantenemos las pautas de más seguros en casa, el distanciamiento social, usamos mascarillas, nos lavamos las manos y desinfectamos superficies siempre que es necesario. Si seguimos así, podremos pasar a la Fase 3.

¡Juntos lo haremos!

Sinceramente,

Concejal Gil Cedillo, Distrito 1

LADOT extiende pautas flexibles de estacionamiento como parte de los esfuerzos de la ciudad para combatir COVID-19

La agencia que regula el estacionamiento público de LADOT anunció que las pautas flexibles de estacionamiento seguirán vigentes hasta el lunes 1 de junio.

A continuación, una lista con detalles sobre las normas temporales de estacionamiento de la ciudad.

LADOT es flexible temporalmente en las siguientes categorías:

  • Limpieza/barredora de calles residenciales
  • Registro vencido del vehículo
  • Restricciones de estacionamiento en horas pico/zonas de congestionamiento
  • No multas ni remolque de vehículos abandonados y/o estacionados durante la noche/madrugada.

Además:

  • No aumenta la multa de estacionamiento hasta después del 1 de junio
  • Período de gracia extendido para áreas de pick up
  • Extensiones inmediatas en todos los plazos para pagos hasta el 1 de junio
  • LADOT proporcionará un permiso temporal para imprimir a los residentes dentro de una zona de estacionamiento preferencial que hayan renovado su permiso pero no han recibido su nuevo comprobante antes de que expire su permiso actual.

Siguen vigentes:

  • Todos los parquímetros.
  • Límites de tiempo dentro de zonas de estacionamiento preferenciales para vehículos sin un permiso válido o recientemente vencido.
  • Zonas de límite de tiempo señaladas en áreas residenciales y comerciales.
  • Todos los letreros temporales de No Estacionarse
  • No bloquear el acceso de emergencia (callejones, hidrantes, etc.)
  • Líneas rojas.
  • Restricciones de estacionamiento para lugares específicos de la ciudad.

LADOT continúa ajustando las operaciones para ayudar a los residentes y las empresas a cumplir con los requisitos de distanciamiento físico y limitar la propagación de COVID-19. Estos ajustes incluyen restricciones flexibles de estacionamiento, extensiones de pago de multas, audiencias y procedimientos de permisos en línea, reducción total del botón de paso para peatones en intersecciones muy concurridas, zonas de estacionamiento pick up para restaurantes y tiendas minorista, cambio de señales de tráfico al "modo nocturno" para reducir la velocidad y cambios del servicio de transporte público.

Debido a las restricciones durante la pandemia del Covid-19, los gimnasios están cerrados y a muchos padres como Raúl y sus hijos, les resulta imposible tener una ducha aun en una ciudad tan importante como Los Ángeles.

Más allá de una sensación de limpieza, las duchas durante Covid-19 son vitales para que las personas se mantengan a salvo. El equipo ejecutivo de The Shower of Hope estamos muy agradecidos con voluntarios, donantes y socios por su apoyo en las recientes 6 semanas. Agradecemos al Concejal Gilbert Cedillo, quien fue el primer funcionario electo que nos otorgó fondos del gobierno y ahora nos apoya para operar los 7 días de la semana en Los Ángeles en su Distrito 1, incluyendo aquí mismo en Lincoln Heights.

Covid-19 demostró que hay una línea muy delgada entre estar bajo techo y estar sin hogar. Es hora de que comencemos a observar a una ciudad sin personas sin hogar.

¡Hagámoslo posible!

Friends,

This week I salute middle and high school students on their achievement of graduating. I commend their hard work and also thank their parents, teachers, and administrator as they are our future.

As we all continue the guidelines to manage the COVID-19 health crisis, we are slowly beginning to open the economy.  This week the Mayor announced the opening of all pet grooming and pet training retail businesses and mobile services. Customers will be able to drop off and pick up their pets outside the store and all car washes; not just automated and self-service washes; are now allowed to open. Of course, all open businesses must adopt the County’s retail establishment protocol.

We were able to open these businesses because as a community, we continue to stay safer at home, maintain social distancing, wear a cloth face covering, wash our hands, and sanitize surfaces. We will be able to move on to stage three if we continue with these measures.

Together we can do this!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

Councilmember Cedillo Congratulates Our Middle and High School Graduates

Cedillo Commencement Video 5-21-2020

Councilmember Cedillo congratulates students on their achievement of graduating from middle and high school. He thanks teachers, administrators, and parents for helping graduates accomplish this milestone. He encourages graduates to continue their education and becoming our next teachers, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, epidemiologists, and scientists. He also urges them to give back to make our communities better. See his address to graduates here.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, in response to the continued crisis created by the novel coronavirus, Councilmember Cedillo introduced two motions to reallocate an additional $250,000 in funding for community resources and support efforts in District 1. Over $130,000 of the $250,000 will be used to provide direct economic action in support of residents and businesses in the First District, helping our neighbors pay rent and bills, and continuing to support workers temporarily furloughed during the public health crisis.

A mask is a symbol of respect. We wear masks and facial coverings during this pandemic to not only protect ourselves but more importantly to protect others. Please remember that it is now mandated for all Angelenos (except for small children and those with certain disabilities) to use a mask or facial covering when going outdoors. See the video of Team Cedillo Protecting everyone from COVID-19.

This Week Mayor Garcetti Live-streamed From CD 1

We were so thrilled to see our Mayor Eric Garcetti in Council District One outlining our steps on how we are safely reopening Los Angeles. He live-streamed from Caveman Vintage Music in Lincoln Heights. Thank you for your leadership Mayor Eric Garcetti and for continuing to share the great information on our resources the City has been providing during this unprecedented time. The Mayor promoted shopping locally, the City's microloan program, and LADOT's curbside pick-up locations for small businesses. 

In light of the sweeping impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our small business community, the City of Los Angeles has responded swiftly and decisively to support our local, community businesses. The newly established Small Business Emergency Microloan Program now provides financing needed to strengthen small business enterprises in this time of acute need that has been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The State of CA is rolling out the California Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants (DRAI) program on Monday, May 18th.

DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, THE PHONE LINES ARE VERY BUSY, BUT KEEP TRYING.

California acted in April 2020 to make state emergency funds available to a limited number of Californians excluded from the federal disaster assistance on account of their immigration status.

  • DRAI provides $500 in direct assistance per person, a maximum of $1000 per household.
  • Eligible individuals must provide information that they 1) are undocumented and over 18y/o; 2) are not eligible for federal COVID-19 assistance; 3) have experienced a hardship.
  • People in LA County may apply starting May 18, 2020, through these 3 organizations only:
  • Nonprofit organizations will not be assisting individuals prior to May 18. Individuals should not contact them ahead of time. Application assistance will not be provided in person.
  • 40,000 individuals in LA County will receive assistance.

More information available here.

P-EBT Flyer ENGLISH

Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school will get extra food benefits. These food benefits are called Pandemic EBT or P-EBT benefits.

P-EBT benefits help families in California buy food when schools are closed because of the coronavirus emergency. Families will get up to $365 per eligible child on their P-EBT card to use on food and groceries.

Families with children who get CalFresh, Medi-Cal, or Foster Care benefits do not need to apply. Most will get their P-EBT card in the mail during the month of May. P-EBT cards will begin arriving around May 12, 2020.

Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do not get their P-EBT card in the mail by about May 22, 2020 must apply online before June 30, 2020.

The online application will be available beginning May 22, 2020 at ca.p-ebt.org.

LADOT Extends Relaxed Parking as Part of City's Efforts to Curb COVID-19

covid-update-01_6 ladot

LADOT Parking Enforcement announced that relaxed parking regulations will remain in effect until Monday, June 1. While certain parking regulations are relaxed, others remain enforced to ensure that emergency services and other city functions continue to operate properly. Please see the list below for full details regarding city parking enforcement.

LADOT has relaxed enforcement for the following categories:

  • Residential street sweeping
  • Expired registration on a vehicle
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • No ticket/tow for abandoned vehicles and overnight parking
  • Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts will have a two-week grace period following the expiration to renew

In addition:

  • No parking fine increases until after June 1
  • Extended grace period for people dropping off or picking up
  • Immediate extensions on all deadlines for payments until June 1
  • LADOT will supply a temporary, print-at-home permit to residents within a preferential parking district who have renewed their permit but will not receive the new hangtag before their current permit expires

Enforcement continues for:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas
  • All posted Temporary No-Parking signs
  • No blocking emergency access (alleyways, fire hydrants, etc.)
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for city-owned lots

LADOT continues to adjust operations to help residents and businesses comply with physical distancing requirements and limit the spread of COVID-19. These adjustments include relaxed parking restrictions, deferred payment deadlines for citations, online hearing and permitting procedures, elimination of pedestrian push-button functionality at intersections with heavy pedestrian activity, food and retail pick-up parking zones, switching traffic signals to "night mode" to reduce speeding, and service changes on transit lines. 

Here is more information about LADOT's COVID-19 response.

With all the gyms closing due to Covid-19 dads like Raoul find it impossible to shower and keep his kids clean even in such a wealthy city like Los Angeles.

Forget staying clean, with Covid-19 spreading showers are vital for people to simply stay alive. We at The Shower of Hope are grateful to our volunteers, donors, and partners for their support in helping us expand so much in the last 6 weeks. We are grateful to Councilmember Gilbert Cedillo who was the first elected official to give us government funding and is now supporting us to operate 7 days a week in LA in his district including right here in Lincoln Heights.

If Covid-19 proved anything it is that it is a very thin line between being housed and homeless. It's time we start looking at an LA without homelessness.

It's only impossible until it's done!

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Amigos y Amigas,

Como lo he dicho antes, los inquilinos son nuestros residentes más vulnerables. Tomando en cuenta que un 64% de los habitantes de Los Ángeles rentan sus viviendas, cada miembro del Concilio busca todas las medidas posibles para mitigar el pesar y las dificultades causadas por esta pandemia. Medidas como un plan de pago de un año para renta atrasada/acumulada y el congelamiento de aumento renta de un año de acuerdo a RSO, son las acciones más progresivas que una ciudad ha adoptado en el estado, y quizá en todo el país. La única medida que quedó sin aprobación, pero para bien, fue el respetar indicaciones de nuestra Constitución y garantizar que cada vez que el gobierno toma una propiedad, cada individuo afectado por ello, tendrá derecho a una compensación justa.

Tomando en cuenta esta realidad, concentramos esfuerzos para ayudar a nuestros más vulnerables con medios y recursos disponibles y más allá, manteniendo a las familias seguras y protegidas. Junto con las mociones aprobadas esta semana por mis colegas y yo en los programas de alivio de rentas, hay un nuevo proyecto de ley presentado en el Congreso que es la "Ley de Asistencia de Alquiler de Emergencia y Estabilización del Mercado de Alquiler 2020". Junto con el Presidente del Concilio, presentamos una moción que respalda y apoya firmemente esta legislación enarbolada por nuestro líder en la Cámara de Representantes.

Este proyecto de ley establecería un programa de Asistencia de Alquiler de Emergencia, que proporcionaría $ 100 mil millones para ayudar a familias e individuos a pagar el alquiler de su vivienda y servicios públicos para permanecer seguros bajo un techo; también ayudaría a los dueños de propiedades de alquiler -de todos los tamaños- a cubrir sus costos, incluidos los de mantenimiento necesarios para garantizar la salud y seguridad de los residentes; este proyecto de ley, ayudaría a su vez, a la recuperación económica mediante la estabilización de los inquilinos en sus hogares y un mercado más amplio de viviendas de alquiler durante y después de la emergencia del COVID-19.

Sinceramente,

Concejal Gil Cedillo, Distrito 1

REPORTE DE CORONAVIRUS

El Alcalde Eric Garcetti modificó la orden de emergencia de Más Seguro en Casa: TODOS DEBEMOS USAR MASCARILLA SIEMPRE QUE SALGAMOS A LUGARES PÚBLICOS EN LOS ÁNGELES

SOCIAL - Face Coverings (ESP)

Mas Seguro L.A.

El miércoles pasado, el alcalde Eric Garcetti emitió una orden que requiere a los angelinos que usen mascarillas cuando salgan de casa. La orden ayudará en la lucha contra COVID-19, mientras que las restricciones se reducen gradualmente para permitir que más personas regresen a su trabajo y/o hagan actividades al aire libre.

El alcalde también modificó la orden de emergencia "Más seguro casa" de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles para permitir que todos los negocios minoristas, -excepto aquellos en centros comerciales cerrados-, reanuden operaciones pero limitados a entregar sus productos en la acera o en la puerta; el alcalde también ordenó y para abrir playas y espacios recreativos públicos para ejercicio al aire libre con ciertas restricciones.

Las nuevas pautas sobre uso de mascarillas omite a los niños menores de 2 años y a las personas con ciertas discapacidades y se basan en la acción previa del alcalde Garcetti que exige que los trabajadores y clientes comerciales no médicos esenciales usen mascarillas.

"Si bien la orden de la Ciudad de Más Seguro en Casa seguirá vigente después del 15 de mayo, se ajustará gradualmente para permitir más actividades de manera segura, más negocios para operar y más angelinos para volver a trabajar", dijo el alcalde Garcetti. "No vamos más allá del COVID-19, estamos aprendiendo a vivir con él, y seguiremos dando pasos seguros hacia una nueva realidad en los próximos días y semanas". Encuentre aquí los requisitos de reapertura para establecimientos minoristas: Reopening Protocols for Retail Establishments. Y aquí encontrará la orden de Más Seguro en Casa que comienza su transición a la Fase 2 del Condado emitida el 13 de mayo de 2020.

Alcalde Eric Garcetti emitió una orden que requiere el uso de mascarilla fuera de casa

La orden ayudará a la lucha contra el COVID-19, al tiempo que las restricciones se reducen gradualmente para permitir que más personas regresen a su trabajo y/o a las actividades al aire libre. La orden omite a los niños pequeños para evitar riesgos de asfixia y a las personas con ciertas discapacidades.

Las mascarillas frenan la propagación del virus, y usarlas en público representa una capa de protección. Cubrirse la cara no sustituye a otras medidas necesarias para combatir  al COVID-19; lo más importante es quedarse en casa siempre que sea posible, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y mantener la distancia física de 6 pies en todos los entornos. Encuentre aquí más detalles sobre este requisito.

Recientes actualizaciones del alcalde Garcetti

 VENTAS MINORISTAS: Todas las tiendas minoristas, desde productos electrónicos hasta productos de belleza, pueden abrir en la acera y para entregar en la puerta.

 FÁBRICAS: Pueden abrir las que surten a vendedores minoristas; las condiciones son operar con una capacidad reducida de personal y cumplir con los protocolos de higiene y distanciamiento físico.

 PLAYAS: Están abiertas solo para recreación ACTIVA, como nadar, surfear, correr y caminar. Los estacionamientos, muelles, baños y concesiones comerciales permanecen cerrados. No se permiten reuniones, tomar el sol, sentarse, ni practicar deportes en grupo.

 OTRAS DEPORTES/INSTALACIONES: Canchas de tenis, campos de tiro con arco, centros ecuestres y jardines comunitarios en las instalaciones de la Ciudad ya estarán abiertos partir del pasado fin de semana.

 DEBEMOS USAR MASCARILLAS CUANDO SALGAMOS DE CASA: Todos los habitantes de Los Ángeles debemos usar mascarillas cuando salgamos de casa, excepto niños pequeños y personas con discapacidades.

• SE AMPLIA PROGRAMA DE ZONA PARA PICK UP: Todas las tiendas minoristas, no solo restaurantes, dentro de la Ciudad pueden obtener un permiso de zona de pick up temporal para estacionamiento al frente de su negocio para que sus clientes puedan recoger sus alimentos y/o productos. Negociantes y restauranteros pueden solicitar los nuevos letreros que designan estos lugares; una vez aprobados, los letreros se instalarán en un plazo de 3 días de forma gratuita. Para más información y solicitar su letrero, visite en línea.

El alcalde Eric Garcetti lanzó la campaña All In for LA para alentar e inspirar a los angelinos a permanecer unidos, alertas y fortalecidos frente al COVID-19. Ver la campaña PSA aquí.

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

As I mentioned before, tenants remain as our most vulnerable.  In a city that is comprised of 64% renters, every member of this Council has pushed for every conceivable measure to ease the pain and hardship caused by this unprecedented pandemic.  A measure for a one-year rent repayment plan and a one-year rent freeze for RSO's stand as the most progressive actions a city has ever adopted in the state, if not the nation.  The only difference with those that didn't pass, though well-intentioned, was the single hurdle presented by no less than our Constitution in ensuring that whenever there is a government taking of property, every individual is entitled to just compensation.  

For these reasons, we have focused our efforts on assisting our most vulnerable with the means and resources while keeping families safe and sheltered. Along with motions passed this week by my colleagues and I in rent relief programs, there is a new bill introduced in Congress that is the " Emergency Rental Assistance and Rental Market Stabilization Act of 2020". Along with the Council President, my colleagues, and myself, we introduced a motion strongly endorsing and supporting this legislation led by our Speaker and the House of Representatives.

This bill would establish an Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which would provide $100 billion to help families and individuals pay their rent and utility bills and remain stably housed; help rental property owners of all sizes continue to cover their costs, including the costs of necessary maintenance to ensure residents’ health and safety; and help the economic recovery by stabilizing renters in their homes and the broader rental housing market during and after the COVID-19 emergency.  

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Remembering Nativo Lopez

Nativo Lopez

It is with a heavy heart that we remember longtime activist Nativo Lopez who passed away almost a year ago on May 19, 2019. Nativo was the executive director of Hermandad Mexicana Nacional – a community service organization and advocacy organization for Mexican and Latin American immigrants. He was also a national president of the Mexican-American Political Association. He lost a battle with cancer. Nativo was born on October 3, 1951, in Los Angeles. May he continue to rest in peace.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

On Tuesday, Council passed Councilmember Cedillo's motion to issue $16,000,000 in bonds to construct 41 affordable housing units in the Pico-Union neighborhood, at a project known as Mariposa Lily. The project's 41 units will be kept affordable for 55 years after construction due to a covenant with the City of Los Angeles. Councilmember Cedillo continues to push for further construction of affordable units to help alleviate the shortage of housing units in Los Angeles.

Councilmember Cedillo supports the "Emergency Rental Assistance and Rental Market Stabilization Act of 2020" detailed in his letter above. You can read more about the legislation here: Page 1  Page 2 Page 3 and Page 4

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Mayor Eric Garcetti Modifies Safer at Home Emergency Order: ANGELENOS MUST WEAR FACE-COVERINGS WHEN OUTSIDE OF HOME

SOCIAL - Face Coverings

Mayor Eric Garcetti issued an order on Wednesday requiring Angelenos to wear face coverings outside their homes. The order will aid the fight against COVID-19, as restrictions are gradually eased to allow more people to return to work and outdoor recreation.

The Mayor has also modified the City of L.A.’s “Safer at Home” emergency order to allow all retail businesses except those in indoor malls to resume limited operations with delivery and curbside or door side service and to open beaches and more public recreational space for outdoor exercise. New guidelines on face coverings exempt children under 2 and people with certain disabilities and build on the previous action by Mayor Garcetti requiring non-medical essential business workers and customers to wear face coverings

“While the City’s Safer at Home order will remain in place beyond May 15, we will also continue to adjust the order gradually — to safely allow more activities, more businesses to operate, and more Angelenos to get back to work,” Mayor Garcetti said. “We’re not moving past COVID-19, we’re learning to live with it — and we will keep taking measured steps toward a new, safer reality in the days and weeks ahead.”  Here are the Reopening Protocols for Retail Establishments and the continuation of the Safer at Home Order that Begins to Move The County into State 2 the County’s Roadmap to Recovery issued May 13, 2020.

Latest Updates From Mayor Garcetti

  • RETAIL - All retail locations--from electronics to beauty stores--can open for curbside, door side, and delivery.
  • MANUFACTURING - Manufacturing that supports any retail that can also open at reduced capacity, as long as they adhere to sanitation and distancing protocols.
  • BEACHES - Beaches as also open for ACTIVE recreation only, like swimming, surfing, running, walking. Parking lots, piers, beach bike baths, and concessions remain closed. Gatherings, sunbathing, sitting, and group sports are not allowed.
  • OTHER SPORTS/FACILITIES - Tennis and pickleball courts, archery ranges, equestrian centers, model airplane areas, and community gardens at City facilities will open this weekend.
  • FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN OUTSIDE HOME - We’re requiring all Angelenos to wear masks when they leave their homes, except small children and people with disabilities.
  • EXPANDED PICKUP ZONE PROGRAM - All retail shops within the City can get a temporary pick-up zone permit (not just restaurants) to reserve parking spots right out front for customers to pick up items. For businesses and restaurants that apply and get approved, new signs designating these spots will be installed within 3 days for free. To find more information and apply, go to LADOT.LACity.org/retailpickup.

Mayor Eric Garcetti launched the All In for LA campaign to encourage and inspire Angelenos to remain unified, vigilant, and resilient in the response to COVID-19. See the campaign PSA here.

  • Beaches Reopening Guidelines

New Reality

Golf and Trails Will Be Open

LA City Golf Courses and most trails are open consistent with the Mayor's modified SAH directives to allow for golfing and trail usage compiled in consultation and following the County Department of Public Health's recent expansions. 

Our updated park closure rules are attached and the websitelaparks.org

Golf: We have strong rules and regulations in place to address social distancing, mitigate risks, and keep health and safety at the forefront in and near our Golf Courses. We have a reservation only golf system, with heightened social distancing, limits on capacity and other appropriate safety and sanitation rules. *Note putting course in Holmby Park remains closed.

Trails: For our trails, we have developed a robust parking, messaging system, communication program, and enforcement from Rangers, LAPD, aerial support, and other monitoring methods. *Note Runyon Canyon closed until further notice and does not reopen this weekend.

Tennis and Pickle Ball: The City of Los Angeles has issued a Tennis and Pickleball Reopening Plan. Tennis and pickleball courts host tennis and pickleball, which is a non-contact sport. Participants are separated while engaging in the sport. Here are restrictions, maintenance protocols, and monitoring protocols that are required to ensure compliance with COVID guidelines: Page 1 Protocols Page 2 Protocols

COVID-19 Small Bus Info 4-9-2020Economic And Workforce Development Department Will Provide $11 Million In No-Fee Microloans of $5,000 To $20,000 Business Tool Kig Mayor Eric Garcetti announced an $11 million economic relief package for small businesses impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service, and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

Before I talk about the good news in Council this week, I just want to do a shout out for our seniors to apply for the City’s latest version of the senior meal program that provides 3 meals per day. There are eligibility requirements, but I would rather have more apply rather than less.

This week, we voted for a one-year rent freeze for RSO units.  We also supported Council President Martinez’s motion and a related ordinance to provide a private cause of action for tenants in cases where the landlord violates City guidelines enacted during this crisis.  As an added option to this court related action, I introduced a motion requesting HCID to report back in a week for a second option where tenants, in lieu of the private cause of action, can choose for an administrative remedy much shorter than the court process provided by the private cause of action.

We also passed innovative City programs that assist the restaurant and beverage industry, as well as its workers, to recover from the economic crisis caused by COVID-19. 

As we enter a new phase of slowly returning to a new normal, it is up to all of us to remember that our recent success in flattening the curve in the fight against COVID-19 was the result of tireless efforts from first responders, health care workers, selfless individuals and everyday heroes, combined with the City’s unyielding resolve to be unified in thought and action.  Together, we can do it again.  This time, get one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world, back to work.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Week of May 2-May 8, 2020

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

UPDATE: Safer LA Guidelines

Mayor Garcetti has updated the City of Los Angeles’s Safe At Home orders to move into Phase 2 of Safer LA.

Until there is a vaccine or effective treatment, COVID-19 will continue to be a serious public health threat to our communities, our city, and our country. We must learn how to live with the new reality and find ways to safely begin to gradually lift restrictions, making minor adjustments over a long period of time.

As we move forward, it is critical that we continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and avoid a surge in the number of cases that would overwhelm our hospitals.

The City of Los Angeles will take a gradual and staged approach to our response to this crisis — working with leaders across the region and continuing to be guided by expertise from County, State, and Federal public health officials. This approach will enable us to slowly lift restrictions while carefully monitoring risks and needs, and adjusting our approach as needed.

The gradual relaxing of restrictions will require the patience, persistence and partnership of residents, businesses, workers, government representatives  and public health officials.

STAGES OF A GRADUAL AND SAFE ADJUSTING OF RESTRICTIONS

Starting May 8, the City and County of Los Angeles will enter Stage II and begin the process of slow and gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order. Physical distancing, face coverings, and other safety measures will remain in place and will be even more important. 

Safer at Home Timeline 5-8-2020

Starting May 8, the City and County of Los Angeles will enter Stage II and begin the process of slow and gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order. Physical distancing, face coverings, and other safety measures will remain in place and will be even more important.

A gradual approach is necessary to safely navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to slowly taper restrictions so we can avoid a surge of new COVID-19 cases that could overwhelm our healthcare and other systems. This strategy will be slow, deliberate, coordinated, and driven by data and public health criteria.

The first stage — where Los Angeles has been over the last several months — is crisis management mode, which has the goal of saving as many lives as possible.

The second stage aims to transition Angelenos back to a “new reality,” with a slow and gradual change to some restrictions, while always ensuring that there are adequate safety measures in place.

In the third and fourth stages, the City will transition to a state of monitoring and aim to lift additional restrictions. In the fifth and final stage, the City will be fully reopened and turn its attention to reimagining itself in a post-COVID-19 period.

Stages ultimately become less restrictive as they progress. Key milestones must be reached before the City can transition to the next stage of recovery.

We have a reservation only golf system, with heightened social distancing, limits on capacity and other appropriate safety and sanitation rules. *Note putting course in Holmby Park remains closed.

Trails: For our trails, we have developed a robust parking, messaging system, communication program, and enforcement from Rangers, LAPD, aerial support and other monitoring methods. *Note Runyon Canyon closed until further notice and does not reopen this weekend.

The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service, and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

Last week, we protected renters with rent relief.  Circling back to this landlord-tenant component of our City’s overall housing process, Council approved an initiative to notify by mail all rental property owners and their tenants of housing rights and responsibilities during the COVID-19 local emergency period.

Similar to renters, small business is the City’s economic lifeblood.  Our restaurants, bars, as well as modestly-sized retail and service companies need all the flexibility to recover and restore their financial health prior to Covid-19.  At the same time, laid-off workers who were instrumental in the growth and prosperity of larger-sized companies require the same protections given to those we deem our most vulnerable.

In Wednesday’s meeting, Council voted to exempt small businesses while protecting laid-off employees of large corporations.  The ordinance allows service employees with seniority to have first right of rehire, with five days to respond. Employers will be able to notify former employees through writing, email, and text messages when work is available again.  Employers with 25 or less employees, as well as restaurants, bars, and similar establishments, are not covered by this ordinance.

I also seconded a motion by my colleague, Paul Krekorian, to provide senior meals citywide.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council Meeting 3-27-2020 Photo 1

At Wednesday's Council meeting, Councilmember Cedillo continued his commitment to the residents of the First District and Los Angeles. Council passed Councilmember Cedillo's motion to reallocate over $3 million in federal funding to the City renter assistance program and passed first consideration of a "right of recall" ordinance to provide long-term employment security to workers made unemployed by the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Councilmember Cedillo also provided key support to Councilmembers Krekorian and Price's motion to fund and begin a program to ensure food security for seniors across Los Angeles, by providing them with meals delivered by transportation providers. Currently, each district has been engaging in piecemeal solutions to provide food and meals to seniors, but the new $25 million Senior Meal Delivery program will provide a unified, city-wide system to ensure none are left behind.

Mayor Garcetti: Free Covid-19 Testing Now Open To All Residents, With Or Without Symptoms


Mayor Eric Garcetti announced this week that L.A. will be the first big city in America to offer wide-scale, free COVID-19 testing to all residents, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms of the virus. The testing will be open to any resident of Los Angeles County, with tests administered at eight locations inside the City of Los Angeles.

“So long as COVID-19 spreads, we have to scale up our response — and because this disease can be a silent killer, we have carefully built the capacity to get more people tested,” said Mayor Garcetti. “No one should have to wait, wonder, or risk infecting others. Do not leave it to chance. Schedule a test.”

The online portal where testing appointments are made now enables any resident of Los Angeles County to schedule a test, regardless of whether they are showing symptoms of COVID-19. Priority for the same or next-day testing is still given to people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Testing is also prioritized for medical professionals and certain other critical front-line workers who interact with the public as part of their job duties.

The testing program — which began with one Los Angeles Fire Department-staffed location, and has grown to eight sites within the City and 34 across the region — has grown dramatically in just over one month. Thanks to partnerships with Los Angeles County and the nonprofit emergency response organization CORE, the program has already completed about 140,000 tests since March 20. 

Request a test here. For more questions about testing, please visit our FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions.

The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service, and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Amigos,

En una ciudad donde las personas que pagan rentan son mayoría, es obvio que durante esta crisis sin precedentes, el Concilio proteja a los más vulnerables.

Por esta razón, durante la reunión maratónica de 12 horas que sostuvimos todos los integrantes del Concilio a través de Zoom, presenté una moción que brinda un respiro de alivio a los inquilinos. Mi moción fue secundada por nuestra presidenta del Concilio, Nury Martínez.

El 2 de abril del 2020, el Departamento de Vivienda y Desarrollo Urbano de los Estados Unidos (HUD por sus siglas en inglés) anunció la primera asignación de fondos CDBG-CV para la Ciudad, que es de $31,963,374. Para complementar las protecciones de desalojo aprobadas por el Concilio para inquilinos y negocios durante esta crisis, la moción asignará una parte de los fondos para crear el Programa de Ayuda de Emergencia para Inquilinos COVID-19 (COVID-19 Emergency Renter's Relief Program).

También secundé otra moción presentada por la Concejal Martínez que contraataca a la vergonzosa postura del presidente Trump contra la ciudad de Los Ángeles. El paquete de estímulo federal de $2.2 billones, en un acto indigno de discriminación y crueldad vergonzosa, excluyó a las personas indocumentadas y a sus familias.

Es importante tener en cuenta que los legisladores federales, incluidos nuestros representantes locales, están proponiendo la iniciativa de ley “No Taxpayer Behind Act”, (Ley de No Contribuyentes Atrasados). Los inmigrantes pagan impuestos de aproximadamente $27 mil millones anuales a los gobiernos federales, estatales y locales y están trabajando en muchos servicios esenciales durante esta pandemia.

Mientras el Congreso debate la Ley “No Taxpayer Behind Act”, mi moción, con todas las vías legales, busca que en la Ciudad de Los Ángeles todos los contribuyentes sean tratados con igualdad, independientemente de su estatus migratorio. Esta es la posición del Concilio ante la actitud negativa de la Administración de privar a los padres inmigrantes el derecho fundamental de proporcionar techo y comida a sus hijos.

Sinceramente,

Gil Cedillo

TRABAJANDO PARA TI

El miércoles, el Concejal Cedillo presentó dos mociones para reasignar recursos de la Ciudad al fondo de alivio de alquiler durante la crisis. Los $35 millones en fondos federales reasignados se proporcionarían a los programas de emergencia de la Ciudad creados en respuesta a los efectos económicos de la crisis de salud pública de COVID-19, incluidos los programas de alivio de rentas y préstamos para pequeñas empresas. Estas mociones son solo los primeros pasos para remediar las secuelas económicas de la crisis de salud pública, y el Concejal continuará identificando y procurando la reasignación de fondos adicionales de la Ciudad para ayudar a todas nuestras comunidades.

Lewis MacAdams – Fundador de Friends of the LA River - Octubre 12, 1944 - Abril 21, 2020

Lewis MacAdams Photo Mark Boster-LA Times

Foto: Mark Boster-LA Times

Lewis MacAdams falleció esta semana y el río Los Ángeles perdió a uno de sus defensores más poderosos. Fue maestro, poeta y activista.

MacAdams, murió de complicaciones relacionadas con el mal de Parkinson el martes 21 de abril por la mañana a los 75 años de edad; fue una figura visionaria que fundó Friends of the Los Angeles River, una organización sin fines de lucro, e inspiró a toda una generación de activistas que lucharon para reducir el daño al rio a través de un canal de control de inundaciones de 51 millas para que volviera a su cauce natural.

MacAdams comenzó su historia de amor con el río LA en 1986 cuando él y algunos de sus amigos cortaron la cerca que impedía el acceso a la zona rivereña y declararon la liberación simbólica del rio. Así comenzó toda una vida de lucha que ayudó a obtener la aprobación de un proyecto federal de $ 1.6 mil millones para recuperar el hábitat, crear lagunas y construir senderos para bicicletas a lo largo de 11 millas por la rivera al norte del centro de la ciudad.

En reconocimiento a su legado, en el 2016, se edificó un monumento de concreto de 7 pies de altura con la imagen de McAdams y su característico sombrero, en medio de una renacida flora y  fauna en los alrededores, incluidos sus preferidos álamos y ranas de patas rojas; desde entonces ese lugar a la orilla del río es conocido como Lewis McAdams Riverfront Park. Descanse en paz.

City Attorney Enforcement English

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

In a city where renters far outnumber non-renters, it only makes sense that during this most trying time, the City should protect our most vulnerable.

For this reason, I introduced a motion in yesterday’s 12-hour marathon Zoom Council meeting, seconded by our great Council President, Nury Martinez, that provides relief to our renters.

On April 2, 2020, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the first allocation of CDBG-CV funds for the City, which is $31,963,374.  To supplement the Council-approved eviction protections tenants and businesses during this crisis, the motion will earmark a portion of the funding to create a COVID-19 Emergency Renter's Relief Program to help tenants.

Another motion introduced by Council President Martinez which I seconded, fights back against President Trump’s disgraceful war against the City of Los Angeles.  Under his direction, the $2.2 trillion federal stimulus package, in a blatant act of discrimination and unabashed cruelty, excluded undocumented individuals and families.   

It is important to note that federal lawmakers, including our local representatives, are introducing the No Taxpayer Behind Act. Immigrants pay U.S. taxes worth roughly $27 billion annually to federal, state, and local governments and are working in many essential services during the pandemic response.

While Congress debates the Leave No Taxpayer Behind Act, this motion directs the City to pursue all legal avenues to ensure that every taxpayer in Los Angeles is treated equally, regardless of immigration status.  This is the Council’s way to meet the moment and stand in the Administration’s way to deprive immigrant parents the fundamental right to be able to provide food and shelter for their children.   

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

Week of April 18-24, 2020

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

On Wednesday, Councilmember Cedillo introduced two motions to reallocate City funds to provide rent relief during the crisis. The $35 million in reallocated federal funds would be provided to City emergency programs created in response to the economic effects of the COVID-19 public health crisis, including rent relief and small business loan programs. These motions are only the first steps in remediating the economic fallout of the public health crisis, and the Councilmember will continue to identify and order the reallocation of further City funds to assist all our City communities.

Lewis MacAdams - Founder of Friends of the LA River                    October 12, 1944 to April 21, 2020

Lewis MacAdams Photo Mark Boster-LA Times

When Lewis MacAdams passed away this week, the Los Angeles River lost one of its most powerful advocates and the City lost a true original. A teacher, poet, and activist. 

McAdams, who died of complications related to Parkinson’s disease early Tuesday at a healthcare facility in Los Angeles, was a visionary figure who founded the non-profit Friends of the Los Angeles River and groomed a generation of activists to fight to reduce the damage along the 51-mile flood control channel and return to its natural state.  

McAdams began his love affair with the LA River in 1986 when he and some friends cut a hole in the fence and declared the river to be liberated. That late-night stunt turned into a lifetime advocating for the river and helping to get the approval of a $1.6-billion federal project to bring back habitat, create wetlands and provide access points and bike trails along an 11-mile section of unpaved riverbed north of downtown.

In recognition of his contributions, a 7-foot-high concrete relief featuring artistic renderings of McAdams in his trademark porkpie hat; and fauna and flora, including cottonwood trees and red-legged frogs were installed in 2016 in a park along the river’s edge. The park was renamed Lewis MacAdams Riverfront Park.  May he rest in peace.

The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Amigos,

Ahora que terminamos nuestra cuarta semana de Mas Seguro en Casa, quiero felicitarlos por seguir todos los pasos para proteger nuestra salud pública. El Equipo Cedillo está al frente ayudando a distribuir mascarillas, alimentos y otros recursos, pero afortunadamente no estamos solos en este esfuerzo para proteger nuestra salud pública.

La crisis derivada del COVID-19 demostró la fortaleza de nuestro Distrito 1. Personas que ponen en riesgo su propia salud, continúan trabajando incansablemente en hospitales y refugios, así como voluntarios para distribuir comida a personas mayores y mascarillas en organizaciones y negocios esenciales, y otros más mantienen sus negocios abiertos para apoyar a sus clientes aun ante la cara más oscura de la adversidad. Todos en este distrito estamos haciendo nuestra parte: desde comprando en nuestros negocios pequeños locales, lavándonos las manos correctamente y enseñando a los demás como hacerlo, hasta simplemente quedarse en casa y salir solo si es absolutamente necesario.

Continuemos haciendo todo lo posible para mantener la salud y el bienestar de nuestros amigos, familiares, vecinos y de nuestra comunidad. La batalla contra el virus no se ganará fácilmente, pero todos y cada uno de nosotros luchamos desde nuestros hogares y nuestra comunidad. Ante esta crisis sin precedentes, saldremos adelante a través del esfuerzo conjuto.

Manténganse fuertes, seguros y a salvo. Mi equipo y yo siempre estamos a su disposición, así es que no duden en contactarnos.

Sinceramente,

Concejal Gil Cedillo, Distrito 1

Alcalde agrega enmiendas a la Orden de Protección Laboral para expandir el requerimiento de mascarillas y desinfectante de manos a más negocios

Mayor logo

Las empresas Amazon, Caviar, Doordash, GrubHub, Instacart, Lyft, PostMates, Shipt, y Uber fueron agregadas por el alcalde Garcetti a su Orden de Protección Laboral requiriéndoles que proporcionen a sus conductores mascarillas y productos desinfectantes para las manos.

Si la empresa no puede entregar directamente estos artículos a sus conductores, podrá designar un lugar para que sus trabajadores pasen a recogerlos en horario conveniente para ellos (incluyendo horas por la tarde y fines de semana), o bien reembolsar el costo por la compra de estos productos (mascarilla y desinfectante).

Alcalde lanza programa de emergencia para alimentar a personas mayores

Hot Food Under cover Image

En respuesta a una creciente necesidad durante esta crisis, el alcalde Eric Garcetti anunció su programa de emergencia para alimentar a personas mayores (Emergency Senior Meals Response). Para mantenerse Mas Seguro en Casa, las personas mayores podrán recibir sus alimentos en la puerta de su hogar. Angelinos de 60 años de edad y mayores que no participan en otros programas de comidas pueden llamar al 213-263-5226 entre las 9 am y las 5 pm para solicitar esta ayuda.

Gobernador Newsom anuncia pago por enfermedad para los trabajadores del sector alimentario afectados por COVID-19 y más protecciones para los consumidores

Governor Newsom

El gobernador Gavin Newsom firmó una orden ejecutiva para beneficiar a trabajadores de grandes empresas en la industria del sector alimentario afectados por la pandemia COVID-19 con dos semanas de pago por enfermedad, llenando así un vacío dejado por la ayuda federal que proporciona este beneficio similar a empleados de empresas con menos de 500 trabajadores.

Los trabajadores del sector alimentario, incluidos trabajadores del campo, obreros agrícolas, empleados de supermercados, de cadenas de comida rápida, así como choferes de camiones distribuidores, son parte de la fuerza laboral esencial del estado y han trabajado durante la pandemia para servir a los californianos.

Además, para aumentar las medidas de higiene, esta Orden Ejecutiva incluye normas de salud y seguridad para proteger a los trabajadores y los clientes, permitiendo por ley que los trabajadores en las instalaciones de alimentos se laven las manos cada 30 minutos, o cada que sea necesario.

Gobernador Newsom firma una segunda orden ejecutiva

El gobernador Gavin Newsom firmó una segunda orden ejecutiva que aborda una variedad de temas en respuesta a la pandemia COVID-19, incluido el ajuste de los requisitos de admisión para el sistema de la Universidad Estatal de California y la flexibilidad durante 60 días en las verificaciones de antecedentes para sectores críticos de infraestructura.

Específicamente, el sistema CSU podrá prescindir del requisito de audición y en cambio podrá hacer ajustes a sus criterios de admisión para los solicitantes de este otoño para ingresar como estudiantes de primer año en el otoño de 2021.

Además, la orden permitirá al Departamento de Justicia de California desarrollar procedimientos más ágiles para realizar verificaciones de antecedentes y evitar demoras en el procesamiento de solicitudes de empleo para sectores muy necesitados de fuerza laboral, como son servicios de atención médica y la atención a las poblaciones vulnerables.

La orden ejecutiva también permitirá que las verificaciones de estímulo federal fluyan directamente a los padres con custodia atrasados ​​en los pagos de manutención de los hijos y, además, permitirá que los camiones de alimentos (food trucks) con licencia comercial puedan operar temporalmente en áreas de descanso en la carretera durante un período de 60 días, para garantizar que trabajadores esenciales tengan acceso a los alimentos. Caltrans se encargará de desarrollar e implementar un proceso para tramitar los permisos temporales.

Alivio temporal para todos los infractores de tráfico por 90 días

 

 

Superior Court Logo 1

Con vigencia inmediata, el juez Kevin C. Brazile anunció el alivio temporal para todos los infractores de tráfico durante 90 días. El período de gracia de 90 días incluye el aplazamiento de la fecha de todas las multas de infracción de tráfico y violaciones de estacionamiento, así como un sistema simplificado para liberar las licencias suspendidas.
