Dear Friend,

The Delta surge has continued with a jaw-dropping 676 new cases this past week, a 43% increase over the previous week. Given the severity of the surge, I support requiring city employees to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to keep their jobs. It is important to engender confidence from the public who interface with city workers providing services to you. We have three vaccination sites in CD 1 at Glassell Park Recreation Center, Lincoln Park, and the Mexican Consulate. Get vaccinated. Stay safe.

I am so proud of the departments of the City and State who collaborated to complete the beautiful new Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown. What was once a thought to find a more convenient way to help our seniors get between Hill Street to their homes and fixing a blighted area developed into what is now there today.

My vote this week in council led with compassion to achieve compliance for safe and clean public right of ways that are completely obstructed. To do nothing is not compassionate for anyone. The actions the City Council took this week are progress and could not be delayed for perfection. Our actions make it our goal to offer services to anyone before and during efforts to clean and clear obstructions from the public right of way and not pursue a misdemeanor penalty for willful non-compliance rather maintain the issuance of a citation. 

The gravity of my vote to support these actions are moved by the accomplishments of my district to be leading the City with the most built permanent supportive housing, the only council office that deploys daily mobile laundry and mobile showers, the operation of four Project Room Key sites, two safe parking program sites, two interim shelter sites, and one Homekey site. While I continue to work with people who support and oppose my actions to be compassionate and achieve compliance, this is work we must do together to find a balance to make progress for all. 

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO ATTENDS EVENTS

Councilmember Cedillo Opens Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown

Councilmember Cedillo opened the new Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown. He was joined by the partnership that helped make the park a reality including State Senator Maria Elena Durazo, Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo, Bureau of Engineering, Department of Recreation and Parks, Library Services, California State Parks, and most importantly the members and residents of our Chinatown community.

What was once a thought to find a more convenient way to help our seniors get between Hill Street to their homes, the idea of an expansion of the Alpine Recreation Center and fixing a blighted area developed into what is now there today. This colorful urban setting, only a stone’s throw from the city’s civic and cultural center, is now further enhanced with this vibrant neighborhood pocket park that will become a destination for many. This new half-acre park transforms a once vacant and unmaintained hillside.

Cameraman: Frank Aguilera, Audio: Martin Martinez, Editor: Kevin King

Designed into 3 different levels, the Dragon Walk pathway seamlessly connects each of the terraces.

The Lotus Plaza sits at the lowest elevation—an area envisioned to bring together our seniors to practice Tai Chi, and a place of respite to those who may have visited the library down the street.

The second level holds a bamboo garden— an area that was imagined as a multi-generational space, where grandparents can congregate around chess tables while their grandchildren who go to Castelar Elementary play on a summer day.

The third level is called the Heavenly Garden, designed with viewing windows and a lantern tower—a peaceful place that opens up to Hill Place.

This urban green space was created to provide a place of social cohesion and physical activity, as well as to create a safe and sensible pedestrian pathway between the streets above and below.

"L.A. City Councilman Gil Cedillo said Monday that COVID-19 vaccination should be required for L.A. city employees. 'How do you engender confidence from the public,' he asked, 'if you’re not assuring that the people providing services are vaccinated?' A growing number of Los Angeles politicians want to require city workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as infection numbers have resurged, a step already announced in New York, San Francisco, and Pasadena."

ARTS AND CULTURE

Councilmember Cedillo Executive Producer of ARENA: A House Music-al

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all. Lucio attends EXIT and realizes that his truth is what is most important.

ARENA features over 15-20 original music compositions and great dancing, a signature of a TNH Production! The creative team that brought In The Heights, Disney’s Aladdin Dual  Language Edition, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The Broadway Musical and Sister Act to Boyle Heights brings you another high energy, poignant story that will bring you to your feet, touch your heart and inspire you to sing as you leave the theater.

ARENA is presented by: Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo, TNH Productions, CASA 0101 Theater, and El Centro Del Pueblo.

  • Planning For Pets If You Can’t Be There For Them

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

The COVID-19 delta variant continues to surge. This week’s 472 new infections is the most we have faced since Feb. 26th, when CD1 had 510 new cases. That is a 333% increase! Amazingly, we also had ZERO deaths this week. Stay safe.

Redistricting of council districts will be completed by December 31, 2021. Redistricting is where district lines are drawn and will determine where residents can vote, whom they can vote for, and even how responsive elected officials are to your requests. Representation is power. Who represents you in City Hall can mean more affordable housing, cleaner streets, better parks, and how they respond to crises like the pandemic. Making sure your district is drawn in a way that gives you fair representation can make a big difference for you and your family. I invite you to the public hearing for CD1 regarding redistricting on Saturday, August 14th at 10 am in a virtual format. You can register here.

For the thousands of readers of Cedillo Weekly, many of you have pets. In this week’s Pet’s Corner, I share with you information from Animal Services on planning for pets if you can’t be there for them.

Have a wonderful week and be safe. Please contact me if I can be of any service at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

Gil Cedillo

LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL REDISTRICTING COMMISSION

What is Redistricting?

Every person in the City of Los Angeles lives in a City Council district, which is defined by certain streets and neighborhoods. We have the opportunity to elect a city council member based on what district we live in. For example – Lincoln Heights, Boyle Heights, Pacoima, San Pedro, or Venice are each in different Council districts, and residents in those communities vote for different people to represent them.

Every ten years following the decennial U.S. Census, the Los Angeles City Charter requires that district boundaries for the City Council be redrawn. As communities get smaller or bigger, and people move in and out, it is important that the districts are defined fairly and equally. According to the U.S. Constitution, all electoral districts within a given redistricting map must contain approximately the same number of people. The maps drawn will determine the allocation of political power and representation at every level of government (city, county, state, and federal) across the nation for at least the next ten years.

As part of this process, a twenty-one-member Redistricting Commission is formed with members from the public with the authority to make recommendations on a redistricting plan to the City Council that sets boundaries for the City Council districts. Redistricting is primarily done using U.S. Census data, which is usually released around March 31, 2021, but is expected to be delayed until August or September 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Per the City Charter, the redistricting process for the City of Los Angeles must be completed by December 31, 2021.

Why Should I Care About Redistricting?

Where district lines are drawn may determine where residents can vote, whom they can vote for, and even how responsive elected officials are to your requests.

Past redistricting efforts have divided Asian, Black, and Latino communities to prevent them from electing their own representatives. The maps were drawn so that communities of color were split up in ways that they never had a majority – and thus, could never vote for one of their own people.  

Representation is power. Who represents you in City Hall can mean more affordable housing, cleaner streets, and better parks. And making sure your district is drawn in a way that gives you fair representation can make a big difference for you and your family.

Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission

The core purpose of the Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission (LACCRC) is to independently draw proposed Los Angeles City Council District boundaries based on census data that will allocate constituents proportionately while also accounting for the unique histories, experiences, and interests of communities, such that those interests will have the highest probability of being served by elected representatives and the City of Los Angeles.

LACCRC has developed a calendar for Redistricting Public Hearings that will provide residents the opportunity to talk about their “communities of interest”, a fundamental component of drawing new Council District boundaries.  There will be 19 public hearings that began July 1st and will go through September 25th.

The public hearing for CD1 is scheduled for Saturday, August 14th at 10 am in a virtual format.  Attached is a flyer, fact sheet, and second flyer with all public hearing dates.  The Commission will follow a standard format for introducing the redistricting process and receiving public testimony from as many residents as possible about their perceptions of their “communities of interest”.

Your illness, accident, hospitalization, or death could leave your furry companion out in the cold. Companion animals may end up all alone with no one to care for them due to their owner’s unexpected illness, accident, hospitalization, or death when no arrangements have been made for their care.

By planning for the unexpected, you can ensure that your furry family member has food, water, shelter, proper care, and love if you are no longer able to provide for them. Proper planning can help guarantee your best friend is well cared for in the event that something unexpected happens to you. Here is some information to get you started.

Dear Friend,

This week's rise in new infections is the worst since March 12, when we were coming down from the surge, and had 306 new cases. It’s also a 260% increase over last week’s 109 infections. Back in March we also had 16 deaths, compared to 2 fatalities now.

Wearing a mask indoors with others reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. The LA County Department of Public Health is now requiring masking for everyone while indoors at public settings and businesses, regardless of vaccination status so that we can stop the increased level of transmission we are seeing. Please take care of our family, friends, and neighbors by wearing a mask and getting vaccinated.

I'm now including County stats on vaccination rates in CD1 communities in the Cedillo Weekly. You can see why getting vaccinated is important and has a connection to the COVID-19 case rate. If you are not able to go to a vaccination site, you can now get vaccinated at home. Call the DPH Hotline at 833-540-0473 to schedule an appointment.

Please take advantage of the California Earned Income Tax Credit. For information and Free Tax Prep LA community locations go to Free Tax Prep – HCIDLA (lacity.org).

As we enjoy the summer, free concerts are back at Grand Performances at the renovated California Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles. Visit their event calendar here.

I also invite you to attend a wildlife seminar. Join LA Animal Services in a session on the wildlife you may encounter in your neighborhood.

L.A. County Community Transmission of COVID-19 Increases from Moderate to Substantial; Reinstating Masking Indoors for Everyone - 1,537 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County and 3 Deaths

Community transmission of COVID-19 has rapidly increased from Moderate to Substantial, based on the trend in daily new cases of COVID-19. The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified to require masking for everyone while indoors, regardless of vaccination status, as Los Angeles County sees more than a seven-times increase in new cases since the June 15 reopening. Wearing a mask when indoors reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. This additional layer of protection can help to slow the spread and does not limit business occupancy and operations.

Newsom Touts Budget In Campaign-Like LA Rally - Cedillo Successfully Advocates for $15 Million for UCLA Labor Center in CD 1

The California State budget includes $15 million as a one-time allocation for the renovation of a permanent home for the UCLA Labor Center, which will be named the UCLA Reverend James Lawson Jr. Worker Justice Center.

Councilman Gil Cedillo, who represents the center’s district celebrated the funding, “The UCLA Downtown Labor Center has been located in Council District 1 at 675 S. Park View St. in the Westlake/MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles for 19 years, and has made historic contributions to working-class communities, immigrants, and communities of color, who have faced the most severe consequences and mortality rates from the COVID pandemic. I look forward to continuing my support of the Center’s social justice work that is so important to my constituents,” Councilmember Cedillo said.

Small, Nonprofit Theaters Will Receive a $50 Million One-Time Subsidy As the First Step In Ongoing Funds Supporting Diverse Theater – Councilmember Cedillo Advocates For More Through SB 805

Photo Credit: CASA 0101, 24th Street Theater and LA Theatre Center

California’s beleaguered network of small, nonprofit theaters will receive a $50 million one-time subsidy under a $262 billion California state budget agreement signed this week by Gov. Gavin Newsom. This is a great first step to support small theaters in California. Councilmember Cedillo introduced a resolution in Council that was passed, supporting SB 805 (Senator Susan Rubio), the next step in supporting small theaters over the long term. SB 805, if fully funded, will help small theaters, who now have to provide a minimum wage, and cover payroll taxes, workers' compensation, and unemployment costs to their workers. Councilmember Cedillo strongly supports a coalition of small theaters that are pushing for this funding including CASA 0101 Theater, Los Angeles Theatre Center, and 24th Street Theater.

Audiencia pública sobre servicios de tránsito público

Durante los últimos dos años, LADOT implementó dos programas piloto de tránsito: DASH to Class que ofrece tarifa gratuita a estudiantes, y LAnow que brinda servicio de microtransporte compartido en West LA. Ambos programas han demostrado éxito en sus fases piloto y reflejan el compromiso de LADOT para quienes viven, trabajan y visitan nuestra ciudad.

Como lo requiere la ley federal, descrito en los requisitos de la Circular 4702.1B-Título VI de la Administración Federal de Tránsito (FTA), LADOT completó recientemente un análisis de equidad de tarifa para DASH to Class y un análisis de equidad de servicio para el piloto de microtransporte LAnow. El 14 de julio, LADOT ofrecerá dos audiencias públicas, de forma remota y telefónica, para discutir estos programas.

Como parte del proceso de audiencia, tendrás la oportunidad de proporcionar comentarios, preguntas o ideas. Si deseas aportar tu opinión pero no puedes participar en la audiencia del 14 de julio, tus comentarios escritos pueden incluirse en el registro público.

DASH E Route to Change Expanding Further From Downtown LA Into MacArthur Park

Starting July 10th, the DASH E route will change expanding further from Downtown LA into Macarthur Park. It will run along Alvarado Blvd. for a block before going back to downtown. It currently only reaches Witmer before doubling back. A few months back Councilmember Cedillo introduced a motion requesting LADOT to help us deploy additional DASH E buses into our district, and today he is very excited that the City is providing expanded DASH E service from Downtown LA into MacArthur Park. Our senior citizens, students, and families deserve improved services to enhance their mobility and this is one step towards the right direction to help meet our transit needs in our communities that rely heavily on these services. It is critical that our communities have access to clean, reliable, and affordable transportation.

You can see the route changes here.

LADOT Transit Fare Change Public Hearing

Over the last two years, LADOT implemented two innovative transit pilot programs - DASH to class, which offers free fare to students, and LAnow, providing on-demand shared microtransit service in West Los Angeles. Both pilot programs have demonstrated success in their initial pilot phases and reflect LADOT's commitment to improving mobility for those who live, work, and visit our city.  

As required by federal law, outlined in the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Circular 4702.1B-Title VI Requirements, LADOT recently completed a Fare Equity Analysis for DASH to Class and a Service Equity Analysis for the LAnow microtransit pilot. On July 14, 2021, LADOT is offering two public hearings, remotely and telephonically, to discuss these findings.

As a part of the hearing process, you have an opportunity to provide any comments, questions, or input. If you would like to provide input but cannot participate in the hearing on July 14, your written remarks can be included in the public record.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

La semana pasada, el Concilio escuchó al público y analizó diferentes ideas sobre cómo lograr con consideración el cumplimiento de los derechos públicos seguros y limpios que están completamente obstruidos. No hacer nada no beneficia a nadie. Las acciones tomadas esta semana son un avance y no se pueden retrasar mientras esperamos algo perfecto. Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer servicios a cualquier persona antes y durante los esfuerzos para limpiar y despejar los obstáculos del derecho de paso público, y no perseguir una pena menor por incumplimiento intencional.

Quiero aclarar que esto no criminaliza la falta de vivienda. Hace responsables a las personas si deciden no cumplir con las indicaciones del derecho de paso público después de que se les solicite que eliminen voluntariamente sus objetos personales o propios. Mis votos para apoyar estas acciones están motivados por los logros de nuestras comunidades para liderar la Ciudad con la construcción del mayor número de viviendas de apoyo permanente.

La oficina del Distrito 1 es la única que implementa diariamente lavandería y duchas móviles, la única en operar cuatro sitios de Project Roomkey, dos sitios de estacionamiento seguro, dos sitios de refugio provisionales y un sitio de Homekey. Sigo trabajando con personas que apoyan y se oponen a mis acciones para ser compasivo y lograr que se cumplan los reglamentos de la Ciudad. Debemos trabajar juntos para encontrar un equilibrio rumbo al progreso.

Aquí hay algunos puntos clave de lo que votamos la semana pasada, y que volveremos a analizar a fin de mes:

Permitir que el Concilio restrinja dormir, acostarse y acumular artículos cerca de instalaciones públicas como parques y bibliotecas, autopistas y refugios.

Prohibir que las tiendas de campaña y los campamentos bloqueen las aceras obstruyendo el paso a usuarios en sillas de ruedas, (esto es una violación de la Ley de Estadounidenses con Discapacidades – ADA – por sus siglas en inglés).

Prohibir que las personas se sienten, duerman o acumulen propiedades en una calle pública o banqueta a menos de cinco pies de la entrada de un edificio, o dentro de los 10 pies de un camino de entrada.

Exigir un aviso de 14 días, con letreros colocados, de que el campamento está prohibido en un lugar en particular, y buscar que las personas sin hogar cumplan voluntariamente.

Prohibir dormir y acampar cerca de escuelas, preescolares y guarderías con licencia.

Exigir que la ciudad cree una “estrategia de intervención en la calle” dentro de los 30 días para limitar los enfrentamientos entre las fuerzas del orden y las personas sin hogar, excepto en ciertos casos, como cuando se está cometiendo un delito.

Otorgar al Concilio el poder de prohibir acampar en lugares que representen una amenaza continua para la seguridad pública como incendios, delitos violentos u otras condiciones peligrosas.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

VACUNA DEL CORONAVIRUS

Con una mayor circulación de la variante Delta del Coronavirus y altamente transmisible, mantenemos la recomendación de usar mascarilla aun cuando ya te hayas vacunado. Por favor, usa mascarilla en lugares cerrados y/o públicos como medida de precaución. De acuerdo a los CDC, las variantes de Delta ahora se encuentran en 1 de cada 5 casos nuevos de Covid-19 en todo el país.

El Concejal Gil Cedillo le dijo a Los Ángeles Times que “… exigir la vacunación de los trabajadores de la ciudad es algo que deberíamos haber hecho desde en medio de la pandemia. Una orden es apropiada si es una condición de empleo. Servir a la ciudad es un privilegio”.

“Para inspirar confianza en las personas que servimos”, continuó Cedillo, “el público necesita saber que los trabajadores están vacunados y pueden actuar de manera segura. No queremos que el público dude en buscar los servicios que desea y necesita porque se siente inseguro".

Se pide a todos los residentes de Los Ángeles, vacunados o no, a usar máscaras ante la propagación de la variante Delta del COVID-19

Hace menos de dos semanas que se eliminó el requisito de usar mascarillas en lugares públicos cerrados, sin embargo, los funcionarios de salud del condado ahora “altamente” recomiendan que todos, incluidos los que ya estamos vacunados, usemos mascarillas en lugares públicos cerrados debido a la rápida propagación de la variante Delta, una mutación altamente contagiosa de COVID-19.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL GIL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Amigos y amigas:

El Concilio aprobó la resolución SB 805 que representé y secundó el Concejal Kevin de León. La SB 805 fue escrita por la Senadora Susan Rubio, en representación del Distrito 22 del Condado de L.A. para crear el Fondo de Nómina Equitativa de las Artes Escénicas para apoyar económicamente a las pequeñas empresas de arte sin fines de lucro y garantizar que todos los trabajadores reciban al menos un salario mínimo.

Me preocupa la falta de representación de latinos y latinas, personas de color y otras minorías en la industria de Hollywood, desde el teatro, la pantalla grande y la televisión. La SB 805 es un paso que la Legislatura y el Gobernador del Estado pueden tomar para igualar las oportunidades y aumentar los fondos para capacitar a talentos ya existentes de nuestras minorías. Cuando Hollywood contrate a más de nosotros, estaremos aun más capacitados. La SB 805 proporcionará más recursos para ello.

Muchas comunidades dependen de las pequeñas empresas sin fines de lucro como su único acceso a las artes escénicas, y muchos trabajadores de minorías en la industria comienzan en pequeñas organizaciones sin fines de lucro, como compartió Edward James Olmos.

SB 805 ha sido aprobada por el Senado estatal, por el Comité de Artes de la Asamblea y por el Comité de Trabajo de la Asamblea. Ahora le pido a la asambleísta Lorena González que programe su votación en su Comité de Asignaciones de la Asamblea.

REPORTE DE VIVIENDA

Solicitud de apoyo federal para la planificación de la comunidad William Mead Homes

Foto: publichousing.com

La semana pasada, el Concejo Municipal votó para respaldar una moción de la Autoridad de Vivienda de la Ciudad de L.A. (HACLA por sus siglas en inglés) para presentar una solicitud de subvención federal para apoyar la planificación impulsada por la comunidad en William Mead Homes.

Aquí hay un enlace a la Moción del Concilio

Si HACLA obtiene los fondos del Departamento de Vivienda y Desarrollo Urbano de los EE. UU. (HUD) como parte de su "Subvención de planificación de vecindarios de elección", HACLA trabajaría con los residentes y las partes interesadas existentes para formular una visión comunitaria y mejorar la calidad de vida impactando la capacidad de ingresos, la salud y la educación.

HACLA actuaría en una planificación basada en el lugar de impacta y con los criterios de los residentes para co-crear un "Plan de transformación" para revitalizar William Mead, transformar el vecindario circundante y crear resultados positivos para las familias. HACLA es elegible para recibir hasta $450,000 por este trabajo.

Nuestra oficina observará este proceso a medida que HACLA avance y dará una actualización una vez que sepamos la decisión final de HUD.

“Estoy muy feliz de ver a Elden Elms cobrar vida”, dijo el Concejal Gil Cedillo. “He apoyado este proyecto desde el principio y doy la bienvenida a estas familias y personas con los brazos abiertos”.

  • Cedillo Votes for Compassion With Compliance to Maintain Safe and Clean Public Right of Way

  • Report Illegal Fireworks

  • Council Supports Cedillo’s Resolution in Favor of SB 805 That Will Provide Grants To Small Nonprofit Performing Arts Companies

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week the City Council for three days heard from the public and discussed different ideas on how to lead with compassion to achieve compliance for safe and clean public right of ways that are completely obstructed. To do nothing is not compassionate for anyone. The actions taken this week are progress and cannot be delayed as we wait for perfection. Our actions make it our goal to offer services to anyone before and during efforts to clean and clear obstructions from the public right of way and not pursue a misdemeanor penalty for willful noncompliance rather than maintain issuance of a citation.

This does not criminalize homelessness it holds people accountable who choose not to comply after being asked to voluntarily clear their obstructions of the public right of way. The gravity of my votes to support these actions are moved by the accomplishments of my district and our communities to be leading the City with the most built permanent supportive housing, the only council office that deploys daily mobile laundry and mobile showers, the operation of four Project Room Key Sites, two safe parking program sites, two interim shelter sites, and one Homekey site. While I continue to work with people who support and oppose my actions to be compassionate and achieve compliance, this is work we must do together to find a balance to make progress for all. 

Here are a few key points of what we voted on and must return to finalize at the end of the month.

  • Allow the City Council to restrict sleeping, lying, and storing items near a variety of public facilities like parks and libraries, including freeways and homeless shelters
  • Prohibit tents and encampments from blocking sidewalks in ways that prevent wheelchairs users from traveling on them, in violation of the Federal Americans With Disabilities Act.
  • Prohibit people from sitting, sleeping or storing property on a public street or walkway that is within five feet of a building’s usable entrance or within 10 feet of a driveway
  • Require 14 days’ notice, with signs posted in an area, that camping is barred in a particular location and seek to have homeless people comply voluntarily.
  • Prohibit sleeping and camping around licensed schools, preschools, and daycare facilities.
  • Require the city to create a “street engagement strategy” within 30 days that would limit interactions between law enforcement and homeless people except in certain cases, such as when a crime is being committed.
  • Grant the council the power to prohibit camping at locations that pose an ongoing threat to public safety due to fires, violent crime, or other hazardous conditions.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO WEEKLY

Week of June 26 to July 2, 2021

Happy 4th of July

If you or any friends or family at 4th of July gatherings are unvaccinated or immunocompromised, stay outside as much as possible, and always wear masks when indoors except when eating and drinking. The Delta variant is more infectious than other variants. #StaySafe

Fireworks Are Still Illegal in the City of Los Angeles

As we approach the 4th of July, please remember that fireworks are illegal in the City of Los Angeles. Kids under the age of five have the highest estimated rate of emergency visits due to fireworks injuries. Call 311, 1 (877) ASK-LAPD or 1( 877) 275-5273 to report sites that are setting off illegal fireworks, anonymously provide a tip at LACrimeStoppers.org or go to this complaint portal.

View this video on illegal fireworks.

CORONAVIRUS VACCINE

With more circulation of the highly transmissible Delta variant, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health strongly recommends everyone, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors in public places as a precaution. Per the CDC, the Delta variants are now responsible for 1 in 5 new cases across the country.

Councilmember Cedillo Supports Mandating Vaccination for City Workers

Councilmember Gil Cedillo stated to the Los Angeles Times that “…mandating vaccination for city workers seems like something we should be doing amid the continuing pandemic. A mandate is appropriate if it is a condition of employment. Serving the city is a privilege,” Cedillo continued,  “In order to instill confidence in the people we serve, the public needs to know that the workers are able to serve them safely. We don’t want the public to be hesitant to seek services that they want and need because they don’t feel safe.”

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Dear Friends,

The resolution to endorse SB 805 I introduced, seconded by Councilmember Kevin de Leon, District 14 passed Council. SB 805 is authored by Senator  Susan Rubio, representing District 22 of LA County. SB 805 would create the Performing Arts Equitable Payroll Fund, which will provide grants to small nonprofit performing arts companies to guarantee that all workers are paid at least minimum wage.

I am very concerned with the lack of Latinos and Latinas and other people of color in mainstream Hollywood, whether that be in live theater, the movies, or television. SB 805 is one way for the State Legislature and the Governor to take action to help dramatically increase the funding for training a pipeline of talent, so eventually, when Hollywood hires more of us, they will hire well-trained talent. We of course already have well-trained talent, but SB 805 will provide more resources to train more.

Many communities rely on small nonprofit performing arts companies as their sole access to the performing arts and many workers of color in the performing arts industry get their start at small nonprofit performing arts companies as Edward James Olmos so eloquently shared in his advocacy for the passage of SB 805.

SB 805 is one way for the State Legislature and the Governor to demonstrate their support to level the playing field for people of color by taking action to help dramatically increase the funding to continue training a pipeline of talent.

SB 805 has passed the State Senate, Assembly Arts Committee, Assembly Labor Committee. I urge Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez to schedule a vote in the Assembly Appropriations Committee, which she chairs.

HOUSING UPDATE

Federal Grant Application to Support Community-Driven Planning at William Mead Homes

Photo Credit: publichousing.com

This week, the City Council voted to back a motion by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) to submit an application for a federal grant to support a community-driven planning process at William Mead Homes. 

If HACLA is successful in securing the grant from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of its “Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant” for William Mead Homes and the surrounding neighborhood, HACLA would work with existing residents and community stakeholders to formulate a “Transformation Plan”, a community vision for improving the quality of life for residents and outcomes related to income, health, and education. 

HACLA would engage in place-based, resident-informed planning work to co-create the Transformation Plan that will serve as the guiding document for the revitalization of William Mead while simultaneously directing the transformation of the surrounding neighborhood and creating positive outcomes for families.  HACLA is eligible to receive up to $450,000 for this work.

Our office will monitor progress as HACLA pursues the grant and will give an update once we learn the final decision from HUD.

PET CORNER

Councilmember Gil Cedillo is concerned with the safety of your pets during the Independence Day Holiday Weekend. To ensure the safety and well-being of Angelenos and their pets, LA Animal Services has a plan to help keep pets and people safe.

  1. Every year around the 4th of July, LA Animal Services Centers fill to overflowing capacity with frightened pets who escape their homes and yard due to the loud sounds and flashing lights of fireworks. Read LA Animal Services plan to help keep them safe here
  2. The 4th of July and the days following are the busiest times at the six LA Animal Services Centers throughout the City. For many pets, the loud booming sounds and the flashing lights of fireworks can be terrifying for dogs and cats causing pets to escape their home or yard in an attempt to look for somewhere safe to hide. 

To help ensure Angelenos and their furry family members stay safe this holiday weekend, LA Animal Services teamed up with the Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department, and LA CityView 35 on a joint Public Service Announcement about the dangers illegal fireworks pose to residents and their pets.

While enjoying the festivities with family and friends, please remember the following tips for keeping you and your pets safe during the Independence Day holiday weekend.

Amigos y amigas:

Los cifras de COVID-19 de esta semana son los resultados más bajos desde que comenzó la pandemia, con 29 nuevos casos positivos y 2 muertes. Mantente a salvo y permanece alerta. Si no lo haz hecho ¡Vacúnate ya!

Estamos celebrando el 83avo aniversario de Chinatown. La primera persona china en Los Ángeles se registró en 1852. Para construir Union Station, Old Chinatown se trasladó a su ubicación actual y se inauguró el 6 de junio de 1938. Para la gente de Chinatown es una fecha muy especial. ¡Les agradezco sus contribuciones a Chinatown y a la ciudad de Los Ángeles!

Estoy muy contento porque el Concilio aprobó mi Ordenanza contra el acoso de inquilinos que define y codifica las actividades de acoso ilegal, proporcionando una defensa afirmativa para los inquilinos en casos de desalojo cuando los propietarios realizan acciones de acoso y a la vez fortalecen sanciones civiles.

Los inquilinos que solicitaron el programa de asistencia de emergencia de alquiler pueden consultar el estado de su solicitud en el sitio web de HCIDLA en www.hcidla.lacity.org y haciendo clic en el botón "Búsqueda de estado". También pueden comunicarse a través de correo electrónico a [email protected] o llamando la línea directa de ERAP al (833) 373-0587.

Las familias que pagan renta, con la mayoría de mi distrito, por lo que es importante para mí hacer valer sus derechos. En la ciudad de LA, los inquilinos tienen 12 meses después de que expire la Declaración de Emergencia para pagar la renta atrasada. Los inquilinos que reciben un aviso de desalojo pueden presentar una queja ante HCIDLA llamando al (866) 557-7368 o en línea en hcidla.lacity.org.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

Semana del 19 de junio al 25 de junio, 2021 

83avo Aniversario de Chinatown

Muchas felicidades a los habitantes de Chinatown por su 83avo aniversario. La primera persona china se registró en Los Ángeles en 1852. Para 1870, había 200 personas en la cuadra entre El Pueblo Plaza y Old Arcadia Street. A pesar de ser discriminados, los chinos sobresalieron en las industrias de lavandería y productos expandiéndose a 3,000 habitantes.

Sin embargo, the Exclusion Acts frenó su crecimiento durante muchos años. Ante la imposibilidad de comprar una propiedad, sufrieron consecuencias nefastas más adelante.

Para construir Union Station, Old Chinatown se trasladó a su ubicación actual y se inauguró el 6 de junio de 1938. El lento aumento en el número de mujeres llevó al establecimiento de familias con niños.

Durante este tiempo, se organizaron la mayoría de las principales asociaciones de distritos y familias chinas, instituciones de Chinatown y misiones religiosas.

Para la gente de Chinatown el 6 de junio es una fecha muy especial. ¡Muchas gracias por sus contribuciones a Chinatown y a la ciudad de Los Ángeles!

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL GIL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Amigos y amigas:

Estoy muy contento porque el Concilio aprobó mi Ordenanza contra el acoso de inquilinos. Esto significa que por primera vez en Los Ángeles, la Ley de la Ciudad define, codifica y sanciona las actividades de acoso ilegal, proporcionando una defensa afirmativa para los inquilinos en casos de desalojo cuando los propietarios realizan acciones de acoso, a la vez que se fortalecen las sanciones civiles.

Durante estos tiempos difíciles, los familias que luchan por llegar a fin de mes son más vulnerables al desalojo. La ordenanza iniciada antes de la pandemia hará que las tácticas de intimidación y el comportamiento coercitivo del propietario sean ilegales. Los inquilinos de Los Ángeles necesitan de esta ordenanza estricta contra el acoso para protegerlos del desplazamiento ilegal.

Esta semana, el Concilio también aprobó un ajuste de tarifas para apoyar el Programa de Aplicación del Código Sistemático de la Ciudad (SCEP por sus siglas en inglés).

El SCEP se estableció en 1998 para prevenir el desarrollo o la creación de propiedades de alquiler multifamiliares peligrosas, deficientes, insalubres y deficientes. SCEP hace esto mediante la realización de la inspección obligatoria y los requisitos de cumplimiento del código del Código de Vivienda de Los Ángeles. Para más información visita aquí.

Ayuntamiento de Los Ángeles ordena reevaluación de personas sin hogar

Durante la votación del 16 de junio del Concejo Municipal para confirmar a Matt Szabo como Oficial Legislativo en Jefe en remplazo de Llewellyn, quien se jubila, el concejal Paul Koretz le pidió a Szabo que la oficina de CAO volviera a revisar los sitios de personas sin hogar, lo que llevó al Concejal Gil Cedillo a preguntarle a Szabo si se deberían realizar cambios culturales dentro de la oficina "para que no tengamos el escenario en el que se rechazaron 60 sitios".

El Equipo Cedillo, el Concejal Kevin De León y el actor Edward James Olmos se unieron a la lucha de activistas de teatro (Small Theatre Leaders To Advocate for Funding For Small People of Color Performing Arts Companies) para lograr la aprobación de la SB 805.

La SB 805 creada por la senadora Susan Rubio, busca crear un fondo de nómina equitativa de artes escénicas que otorgaría fondos económicos a pequeñas empresas de artes escénicas sin fines de lucro para garantizar que todos los trabajadores reciban al menos un salario mínimo, y establecería un Sistema de Pago de Artes Escénicas sin fines de lucro de California (California Nonprofit Performing Arts Paymaster), para proporcionar servicios de nómina y pagos a bajo costo a pequeñas empresas de artes sin fines de lucro, con un impacto muy positivo en teatros locales como Frida Kahlo Theatre, CASA 0101 Theatre, 24th Street Theatre y L.A. Theatre Center.

SB 805 Press Conference 6-21-2021 #1

La coalición de pequeños teatros con el apoyo de los concejales Cedillo y Kevin De León logró cabildear la aprobación de la SB 805 por parte del Senado estatal y los Comités de Artes y Trabajo de la Asamblea.

Dear Friend,

This week’s weekly COVID-19 numbers are the best results since the pandemic began with only 29 new infections and 2 fatalities during the past week. Stay safe and please remain vigilant. Please get vaccinated if you haven’t done so already.

Happy 83rd Anniversary to Chinatown! ! The first Chinese person was recorded in Los Angeles in 1852. Old Chinatown was moved to its present location to make room for Union Station and was dedicated on June 6, 1938. The people of Chinatown make it very special. I thank them for their valuable contributions to Chinatown and to the City at large!

I am pleased that the City Council passed my Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance.  The new law defines and codifies illegal harassment activities, providing an affirmative defense for tenants in eviction cases when landlords engage in actions constituting harassment while strengthening civil penalties.

Tenants who applied for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program can look up the status of your application by clicking on the “Status Lookup” button at the HCIDLA website at www.hcidla.lacity.org or contact  [email protected] or by calling the ERAP hotline at (833) 373-0587.

Tenants comprise a majority of my district, so it is important that you assert your rights. In the City of Los Angeles, renters have twelve months after the expiration of the Emergency Declaration to make up any unpaid rent. Tenants who receive an eviction notice can file a complaint with HCIDLA by calling (866) 557-7368 or online at hcidla.lacity.org.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO WEEKLY

Week of June 19 to June 25, 2021

83rd Anniversary of Chinatown

Congratulations Chinatown on your 83rd Anniversary! The first Chinese person was recorded in Los Angeles in 1852. By 1870, were 200 people in Chinatown on the block between El Pueblo Plaza and Old Arcadia Street. Despite the heavy discrimination, the Chinese held a dominant economic position in the laundry and produce industries and flourished, expanding to 3,000 people.

However, The Exclusion Acts inhibited any real growth for many years. Inability to gain ownership had dire consequences later.

Old Chinatown was moved to its present location to make room for Union Station and was dedicated on June 6, 1938. The slow increase in the number of women led to the establishment of families with children.

It was during this time, most of today’s leading Chinese family and district associations, Chinatown institutions were founded, and church missions were organized.

The people of Chinatown make it very special. I thank them for their valuable contributions to Chinatown!

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Dear Friends,

I am pleased that the City Council passed the Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance.  This means that for the first time in Los Angeles, city law defines and codifies illegal harassment activities, providing an affirmative defense for tenants in eviction cases when landlords engage in actions constituting harassment while strengthening civil penalties.  During these challenging times, tenants struggling to make ends meet have been most vulnerable to losing their homes. The ordinance initiated prior to the pandemic will make landlord bullying tactics and coercive behavior illegal. L.A.’s renters need a strong anti-harassment ordinance to protect them from illegal displacement.

This week, the City Council also adopted a fee adjustment to support the City's Systematic Code Enforcement Program, known as "SCEP".  SCEP was established in 1998 to prevent the development or creation of dangerous, substandard or unsanitary, and deficient multi-family rental properties. SCEP does this by carrying out the mandatory inspection and code enforcement requirements of the Los Angeles Housing Code.  For more information:  https://hcidla2.lacity.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/scep_english.pdf?download=0

HOUSING UPDATE

Update and Status Lookup of Emergency Rental Assistance Program ERAP

 

The City is disbursing $235.5 million in federal rental assistance funds. Applications opened March 15th and closed April 30th, and approvals and payments are being processed. The City's ERAP program accepted applications from low-income renters, prioritizing first those earning less than 30% of Area Median Income, then 50% of AMI. Applicants must be able to demonstrate that the inability to pay rent was related to COVID-19, including by self-attestation. The program can pay landlords up to 80% of the total rent unpaid between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021. If landlords decline to waive the 20% of total rent owed or otherwise declined to participate, payments of up to 25% of total rent owed can be made directly to tenants. Applications are being processed in priority order, with the lowest income households reviewed first.

Applicants can obtain the status of their application by clicking on the “Status Lookup” button on the HCIDLA website. Inquiries can be referred to [email protected] or by calling the ERAP hotline at (833) 373-0587 available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The TTY line number (for hearing or speech impaired) is (888) 705-5768

Eviction Protections Tenant protections for renters in the City of Los Angeles are stronger than those provided under State law. In the City renters have twelve months after the expiration of the Emergency Declaration to make up any unpaid rent. The City’s COVID-19 Tenant Protections continue in effect beyond June 30th (Ordinances No. 186585 and 186606). Under state law (SB 91), these protections cannot extend beyond August 1, 2022.

Tenants who receive an eviction notice can file a complaint with HCIDLA by calling (866) 557-7368 or online at hcidla.lacity.org HCIDLA is also supporting an Eviction Defense Program.

If you frequently drive through the Arroyo Seco Parkway (110 Freeway) tunnels in Elysian Park you may have noticed some recent changes. Most notably, the Art-Deco style portals or entrances to the four tunnels have been painted over. What's going on? The nearly 90-year-old tunnels are undergoing a $6 million renovation to improve safety and make them easier to maintain.

Dear Friend,

As we approach the 4th of July holiday, we are hearing more illegal fireworks in our neighborhoods. Fireworks are illegal in the City of Los Angeles, and violators will be prosecuted. Please complete this complaint form to report a site where illegal fireworks are being launched or call 311, 1 (877) ASK-LAPD or 1( 877) 275-5273.

This week we had no COVID-19 deaths and an increase of 5 new cases. We are holding steady, but we must all keep ourselves safe. Please follow the guidelines indicated in the new Health Officer Order. Get vaccinated, wear your mask where required, and maintain social distancing.

Please be aware of heat sickness as our city heats up. Although it is cooler this weekend, we expect heat waves throughout the summer and fall. I’ve provided information below on how to recognize signs of heat illnesses and tips on what to do if you experience any of these symptoms. This is especially important for our seniors.

I was so excited to dedicate two new Dodger Dreamfields this week at Lincoln Park including one exclusively for girls. Sports help our youth learn teamwork and responsibility that will help develop them to be our leaders of tomorrow.

We also cut the ribbon to open the new Dolores Wong Plaza in Chinatown. Dolores was a wonderful community leader and philanthropist. She was most proud of providing the resources to open the Chinatown Library.

The Alvarado Bus Priority Lane is being implemented to provide quicker commutes for bus riders. It will reduce opportunities for speeding and weaving in and out of the curb lane, maintain existing overnight street parking for residents and visitors to the area, and provide quick and easy access for workers and visitors to jobs, businesses, and other key locations along the corridor.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Dear Friends,

This week, Council approved an interesting combination of items that benefited the First District.

Prop O Funding, a CLEAN WATER GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND PROGRAM, was recommended for Lincoln Park. 

CRA/LA Excess Bond Proceeds were redirected for the Maya Corridor Project, a streetscape improvement project within the City's Promise Zone as identified in the Bond Expenditure Agreement and Bond Spending Plan for the Westlake Recovery Redevelopment Project Area. 

Council also approved the acquisition of the Goodwill property at San Fernando Road for the proposed Bureau of Sanitation's (LASAN) Clean Water Campus Project (CWC).  CWC is the product of LASAN's need for a new facility with sufficient parking for its employees who are currently stationed at nearby Media Center and the City’s desire to revitalize the corridor in the northwest comer of Lincoln Heights.

Lastly, the plaza right at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Cesar E Chavez Avenue has been officially named the “Dolores Wong Plaza.” Dolores Wong was regarded as one of the mothers of the Asian Pacific American movement.  She was a fourth-generation Californian whose great-grandmother had arrived in San Francisco in 1852. Dolores was the first member of her family to pursue higher education, graduating from the University of California, Berkeley in 1942 and then earning a Master’s degree from Smith College in 1946.  She was also a philanthropist who was instrumental in the establishment of the first public library in Los Angeles’ Chinatown. Dolores Wong Plaza officially opened last Thursday, the 17th of June.

In response to residents' concerns, Councilmember Cedillo had new fencing installed along the walking/jogging path at Avenue 44 and Avenue 45 adjacent to the 110 Freeway. We have made it more secure for the safety of our constituents. Here are two thank you notes we received from residents.

“I wanted to thank you and all of the LA city employees that were part of us getting our new fence on Avenue 45, it looks amazing and seems pretty secure so far?? I wanted to wait a bit before sending the email to see if it would hold up. Well, it's almost a week tomorrow and so far, it seems to be working great.  I can only speak for myself as my neighbors who are much closer might have a different experience.  As mentioned, before it's been almost 8 years since my neighbor Frank Delgado started this process.  We know how much the city has on its plate so getting to this point is a sign of relief finally.  So, once again thank you for all your help and understanding during this process, for listening to our complaints and concerns. I also wanted to thank the LAPD who have come out time & time again to escort the cleaning crew, who were cleaning the area of dangerous trash. 

Hopefully, our Neighborhood will become much safer in the future with the new fence.”

Best Regards,

Byron

*********** 

Very nicely said, Byron. 

I didn’t want to speak so soon either-and keeping my fingers crossed, but the fence is holding up! I feel a sigh of relief to see that so far, no crazies walking by, homeless, etc. They are gone I hope they stay gone! 

Thank you to City of Los Angeles employees who are in this email especially because you had to read all our emails! 

LAPD, LA Sanitation crew and Bill Cody thank you for all your follow-ups, texts, and coming thru for us. You’ve been responsive, professional and I am so grateful for you all. 

Big thank you to Frank Delgado for your relentless dedication to the safety of our street and Byron Licausi for continuing this process that started many years ago. 

Have a great evening all.

Esta semana, al abrir la economía, infórmate sobre los cambios que hay a partir del 15 de junio y la guía para el uso de mascarillas. En esta ocasión, incluí videos de testimonios de nuestros jóvenes en donde nos explican por qué creen que es importante vacunarse.

Como presidente del Comité de Vivienda, elaboré una Ordenanza contra el acoso de inquilinos que mis colegas del Concilio apoyan plenamente. El Fiscal de la Ciudad agregó enmiendas hechas por el consejo la semana pasada y esperamos que se apruebe esta semana para proporcionar protecciones cruciales para los inquilinos. También aprobamos una resolución sobre el “Derecho a vivienda” que presenté.

Les hago una cordial invitación a todos los grupos comunitarios para participar en “Beautify LA Grants”. Esta es una competencia de distribución de fondos de hasta $2,500 que se otorgará a grupos comunitarios seleccionados para financiar proyectos de embellecimiento de vecindarios con el fin de mejorar los espacios públicos en donde vivimos y trabajamos.

Con motivo del Mes de la Herencia LGBT, el Concejal Cedillo seleccionó a la organización Asian Pacific AIDS Intervention Team (Equipo de lucha contra el SIDA de Asia Pacífico). APAIT se distingue por proporcionar programas de alta calidad para defender, educar y lograr la salud y bienestar entre las comunidades mas vulnerables. La misión de APAIT es impactar positivamente la calidad de vida de quienes experimentan problemas de conducta, inseguridad en la vivienda y que están en riesgo de contraer el VIH / SIDA. APAIT se basa en valores fundamentales de compasión, compromiso, comunicación, empoderamiento, integridad, tutoría, respeto y trabajo en equipo.

APAIT se estableció en 1987 como una organización de servicios contra el SIDA para los asiáticos e isleños del Pacífico que morían solos a causa del estigma y la vergüenza relacionados con el SIDA.

La oficina de APAIT está en el 3055 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 300, Los Ángeles, CA 90010 en Koreatown. Tiene un lugar de vivienda provisional llamado Auntie Mele's House en Pico-Union y Casa Zulma en las áreas de Koreatown / South LA, que albergan a un total de 32 miembros de la comunidad LGBTQIA-2 en un hogar seguro. Casa Zulma pronto se mudará al Distrito 1.

APAIT llega a diversas comunidades multiétnicas de los condados de Los Ángeles y Orange que se identifican como LGBTQIA-2S, inmigrantes y refugiados, en riesgo de contraer VIH/ITS, con vivienda insegura y con problemas de conducta.

APAIT aparece en el minuto 36.47 en este video especial de las festividades del Mes de la Herencia LGBT en asociación con el alcalde Eric Garcetti, el controlador Ron Galperin, la presidenta del Concilio Nury Martínez, los Concejales Mike Bonin y Mitch O'Farrell y LA CityView35.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL GIL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana, el Concilio votó para solicitar al Fiscal de la Ciudad que prepare la Ordenanza contra el acoso de inquilinos basada en las recomendaciones del Comité de Vivienda, que me honro en presidir. En respuesta a múltiples reportes de acoso a los inquilinos por parte de los propietarios a quienes los obliga a desocupar su vivienda, la ordenanza prohibirá el acoso a los inquilinos en unidades multifamiliares y viviendas unifamiliares y condominios de propiedad corporativa.

La ordenanza proporcionaría al inquilino afectado el derecho de acción privada y una defensa afirmativa en caso de desalojo, expulsión y otras acciones, y convierte las violaciones en un delito. La ordenanza establece:

  • La definición de acoso de inquilinos.
  • Defensa afirmativa en detenciones ilegales, expulsión y otras acciones.
  • Derecho privado de acción y sanciones civiles, hasta $10,000 por violación, y si el inquilino es mayor de 65 años o discapacitado, $5,000 adicionales por violación.
  • Enjuiciamiento penal como un delito menor con condenas punibles con multas de hasta $1,000 por cada delito o hasta seis meses en la cárcel del condado, o ambos, según lo determine el tribunal.
  • La Comisión de Ajustes de Rentas para interpretar, implementar y aplicar todas las disposiciones de la nueva ordenanza, así como para realizar estudios e investigaciones, llevar a cabo audiencias y hacer cumplir sus regulaciones bajo.

La ordenanza se concibió luego de escuchar informes de defensores de la vivienda sobre un aumento en el acoso por parte de los propietarios para sacar a los inquilinos o hacerlos mudarse "voluntariamente" en un mercado inmobiliario subiendo de valor. A menudo, estas actividades las llevan a cabo nuevos dueños de propiedades de renta estabilizada que están interesados ​​en beneficiarse de un mercado inmobiliario ajustado y caro. Según los informes, una minoría de propietarios sin escrúpulos ha utilizado tácticas coercitivas (reducir los servicios de vivienda, emitir avisos de desalojo basados ​​en motivos falsos, amenazarlos con reportes a inmigración o no hacer reparaciones requeridas por la ley) para obligar a los inquilinos a abandonar su vivienda protegida bajo la Ley de Estabilización de Rentas (RSO), lo que permite a los propietarios aumentar los alquileres a la tasa de mercado.

La pandemia ha hecho que la situación de los inquilinos sea más precaria. Mi oficina continúa escuchando informes y presenciando incidentes de de acoso y comportamiento intimidatorio.

La Ciudad de L.A. se une a San Francisco, Santa Mónica, West Hollywood y otras ciudades para adoptar ordenanzas que prohíben diversas formas de acoso a inquilinos por parte de los propietarios y sus agentes.

Con 640,000 viviendas protegidas bajo RSO, L.A. tiene el segundo inventario más grande de unidades con alquiler estabilizado en la nación (New York tiene 1.1 millones). La ordenanza contra el acoso de inquilinos cubriría alrededor de 852,000 unidades el primer año del programa, incluidas 640,000 unidades RSO, 191,000 unidades multifamiliares sin RSO, 14,000 viviendas unifamiliares de propiedad corporativa y 7,000 condominios de propiedad corporativa construidos después de 1978.

El Departamento de Vivienda de la Ciudad investiga actualmente aproximadamente 10,000 quejas anuales de inquilinos por violaciones de RSO por aumentos de renta ilegal, desalojo ilegal, falta de publicación de la notificación de RSO, no registro de unidades de alquiler, acuerdos de compra de inquilinos ilegales y negación de asistencia de reubicación, según sobre las disposiciones existentes de la RSO. El 36% de las denuncias presentadas son por desalojos ilegales, el 23% son por aumento de alquiler ilegal y el 20% se basan en reducciones en los servicios del inmueble.

Dear Friend,

This week as we open the economy, be sure to read the information on what to expect on June 15th and guidance for the use of masks. I’ve also included videos from our youth explaining why they think it is important to get vaccinated.

As Chair of the Housing Committee, I have crafted a Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance that has garnered the support of my Council colleagues. The City Attorney is incorporating amendments added in council last week and we expect it to pass this week. The ordinance will provide crucial protections for the City’s tenants. Furthermore, we passed a Right to Housing resolution that I introduced.

And lastly, I invite community-based groups to apply for Beautify LA Grants. This is a competitive matching grant of up to $2,500 that will be awarded to selected community-based groups in the City of Los Angeles to fund exceptional neighborhood beautification projects that are designed to enhance the public spaces where they live, work, and play.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Friends,

This week, the City Council voted to request the City Attorney to prepare the Tenant Anti-Harassment Ordinance based on recommendations of the Housing Committee, which I chair.  In response to escalating reports of harassment by landlords to induce their tenants to involuntarily vacate their housing, the Tenant Anti-Harassment ordinance would prohibit harassment of renters in multi-family units and corporate-owned single-family homes and condominiums.

The ordinance would provide an aggrieved tenant with a private right of action and affirmative defense in an eviction, ejectment, and other actions, and makes violations a criminal offense. The ordinance establishes:

  • A definition of Tenant Harassment
  • Affirmative defense in unlawful detainer, ejectment, and other actions
  • Private right of action and civil penalties, up to $10,000 per violation, and if the tenant is older than 65 years or disabled an additional $5,000 per violation
  • Criminal prosecution as a misdemeanor with convictions punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000 for each offense or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period of not more than six months or both, as determined by the court
  • Authority of the Rent Adjustment Commission to interpret, implement, and apply all provisions, and to make studies and investigations, conduct hearings, and enforce regulations under this Ordinance

When this ordinance was initially conceived, we heard from housing advocates reports about an increase in harassment by landlords to encourage tenants to “voluntarily” move out in a gentrifying real estate market.  Often, these activities are conducted by new owners of long-time rent-stabilized properties interested in profiting in a tight, expensive real estate market.  A minority of unscrupulous landlords are reported to employ coercive tactics such as reducing housing services, issuing eviction notices based on false grounds, threatening to contact immigration authorities, or refusing to conduct repairs required by law in order to induce tenants to vacate their Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO) housing, subsequently allowing landlords to raise rents to market rate.

The pandemic has made the life of tenants even more precarious.  My office continues to hear reports and witness incidents of bullying tactics and intimidating behavior.

The City of Los Angeles joins other cities, such as the cities of San Francisco, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood, in adopting ordinances prohibiting various forms of harassment by landlords and their agents against tenants. 

With approximately 640,000 RSO units, Los Angeles has the second-largest inventory of rent-stabilized housing in the nation (second only to New York’s 1.1 million units). The total number of units subject to the Tenant Anti-Harassment ordinance in the first year of the program would be approximately 852,000 units, including 640,000 RSO units, 191,000 multi-family non- RSO units, 14,000 corporate-owned single-family homes, and 7,000 corporate-owned condominiums built after 1978. 

The City’s Housing Department currently investigates approximately 10,000 annual tenant complaints of possible RSO violations for illegal rent increases, illegal evictions, failure to post the RSO notification, non-registration of rental units, illegal tenant buy-out agreements, and denial of relocation assistance, based on existing provisions of the RSO. Thirty-six percent (36%) of complaints filed are for illegal evictions, 23% are for illegal rent increases, and 20% are based on reductions in housing services.

While over 50% of the population in Los Angeles is Latino or Latina, the entertainment industry hires less than 5%. Councilmember Cedillo emphasized that the entertainment industry must hire Latinos at all levels, not just as interns. CASA 0101 has well-trained professionals on stage and backstage that can be hired now.

Councilmember Cedillo participated in the panel at the Immigration Summit: Investing in the Power & Promise of our Future: Part II. He stated that as a policy we have to fully fund the Civil + Human Rights and Equity Department, support the work of the City Council Committee on Immigrant Affairs, Civil Rights, and Equity chaired by Councilmember Kevin De Leon and the Justice Fund. He shared that in addition to a legal response, we must also organize, advocate politically and serve immigrants in totality. He indicated that we have an opportunity with the positions of power that we now hold, that we cannot reiterate Trump rhetoric and policies and there is no reason to continue their programs.

Councilmember Cedillo Introduced a "Right to Housing" Policy

Councilmember Cedillo introduced a "Right to Housing" policy resolution with fellow councilmembers Nithya Raman and Mark Ridley-Thomas. The resolution calls for the inclusion in the City’s 2021-2022 Federal Legislative Program to support and/or sponsorship of any legislation or administrative action that would provide a significant increase in rental assistance resources, including the allocation of more project-based vouchers, which are necessary to sustainably address the homelessness crisis and ensure there is an equitable allocation of long-term affordable housing across Los Angeles. The resolution passed on a 14-0 vote, with one member absent.

OTHER UPDATES AND NEWS

Reducing California's Fire Risk

The U.S. Green Building Council-Los Angeles Chapter (USGBC-LA) will host its quarterly Thought Leadership event, a 4-hour mini-conference on “Reducing California’s Fire Risk”, online, Thursday, June 17th.  The event will begin with virtual tours and expert interviews provided by local green building chapters in Northern and Southern California, leading to multiple keynotes from community leaders, feature panels from industry experts addressing the issues from a community and building level, and then conclude with networking and meeting space for fire-safe councils throughout the state.  

Virtual tours illustrate proper preparedness, processes, materials, and actions any Californians can take. Policymakers and regulators leading California’s fire risk reduction efforts will speak to the policies that come into effect this year, as well as those that are currently under consideration. One panel conversation will address how urban planners can enhance the safety of the communities they invite. Another will cover the building materials and practices that can further reduce the risk of losing structures

The new grant program will support the efforts of community-based groups to beautify public spaces throughout Los Angeles and empower individuals to take personal action to improve their neighborhoods. Groups do not have to be official organizations - they can be as small as a constituent and their neighbors. More information can be found in the proposal packet available for download at http://laocb.org/beautify-la-grant/

The Beautify LA Grant is a competitive matching grant of up to $2,500 that will be awarded to selected community-based groups in the City of Los Angeles to fund exceptional neighborhood beautification projects that are designed to enhance the public spaces where they live, work and play.

REPORTE DE CORONAVIRUS

COVID-19 esta semana en el Distrito 1

14 nuevos casos para un total de 51,937

1 muerte más para un total de 1,340

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL GIL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó tres mociones de inversión en el Distrito 1:

  • El martes primero de junio, nos asignaron recursos de la Prop K —establecida hace muchos años por el ex concejal Mike Hernández — que principalmente es una fuente de fondos para parques.
  • El miércoles 2 de junio, el Programa para Personas sin Hogar, Vivienda, Asistencia y Prevención (HHAP por sus siglas en inglés) aportó fondos para nuestros servicios de duchas móviles.
  • En respuesta a una moción que presenté el año pasado, la CAO encontró fondos para medidas de salud, seguridad y protección muy necesarias cerca de Elysian Park Radio Hill Tower, un centro de comunicaciones vital para el funcionamiento del LAPD y LAFD. El aumento de incendios y el creciente número de campamentos de personas sin hogar, son una preocupación creciente para vecinos del lugar y para personal de los departamentos de policía, bomberos y parques.

Como siempre, mi equipo estuvo atento para escuchar y actuar con soluciones lo más rápido posible ante un peligro claro e inminente para la comunidad. Agradezco a la CAO y a todos los miembros de la familia de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles.

Bob Ramírez fue el maestro de ceremonias; durante el programa oficial, el Concejal Cedillo entregó una bandera a Terry Pérez, hija de John P. Pérez, quien sirvió en la II Guerra Mundial y vivió en Highland Park por más de 60 años. John aterrizó en la playa de Normandía y se abrió paso a través de Francia. Después de liberar a los franceses de la ocupación alemana, participó en una marcha por el Arco de Triunfo en la Avenida de los Campos Elíseos. La compañía de John pasó a liberar Bélgica y Noruega, y él fue enviado a Alemania, donde resultó gravemente herido en una mina terrestre.

Mucho calor es peligroso para tus mascotas

Dog Fan

Foto: Los Angeles Animal Services

Cuando hace mucho calor para ti, hace mucho más para tus mascotas. A medida que el sur de California comienza su temporada de verano, Los Ángeles Animal Services te recuerda que demasiado calor puede ser extremadamente peligroso, incluso fatal, para los animales de compañía.

Ten en cuenta que los perros y gatos intentan refrescarse jadeando o respirando rápido y como no sudan, es más complicado detectar su malestar debido al calor.

Consejos para la temporada de calor para perros y gatos: 

Nunca dejes a tu mascota sola dentro de un vehículo. Si no puede entrar a todos los sitios que frecuentas, déjala en casa en los días calurosos, ahí estará mas segura. Un automóvil se sobrecalienta incluso cuando la ventana está ligeramente abierta. Tu automóvil puede calentarse hasta 20 grados mas de la temperatura exterior. Verifica que los perros sean bienvenidos a donde vayas, de lo contrario déjalos en casa.

Asegúrate siempre de que tu perro o gato tenga suficiente agua fresca para beber. Un balde que contiene un galón o más de agua permanecerá más frío por mucho más tiempo que el agua en un plato. Si a tu perro le gustan los cubitos de hielo ¡agrégalos al balde!

Cat Drinking Water

Foto: Los Angeles Animal Services

Evita las superficies calientes. Mientras paseas a tu perro al aire libre, presta especial atención al pavimento, las aceras o la arena. Comprueba la temperatura con tu mano. Si hace demasiado calor para tocarlo, entonces es obvio que es demasiado caliente para las patas de tu perro. Por ejemplo, si afuera hace 92 grados, el concreto o el asfalto pueden alcanzar los 130 grados.

Dog in Tub - Photo Credit Pet Coach

Foto: Pet Coach

No dejes a tu mascota al aire libre durante mucho tiempo. Si tienes que dejarlo afuera de la casa/departamento por un tiempo prolongado, asegúrate de que tenga suficiente acceso a la sombra, como árboles, un patio cubierto o un lugar fresco debajo del porche. Ponle protector solar específico para mascotas en áreas sensibles como la nariz, la punta de las orejas y el vientre, especialmente si tienen un pelaje ligero o delgado.

Cat drinking ice Photo Credit Catster

Observa los signos de sobrecalentamiento: Si tu perro o gato hace ruido para respirar, lo hace rápido, tiene problemas para tragar y comienza a verse muy angustiado, podría estar sufriendo un sofocamiento. Aléjalo del calor. Envuélvelo en toallas frías y húmedas; asegúrate de enfriarle la parte posterior de la cabeza, entre las patas traseras y el vientre. Llévalo de inmediato al veterinario.

Dear Friend,

Keep it up, my friends! COVID-19 cases in CD 1 went dramatically down from 251 to 14 and deaths went down from 9 to 1. This is great. Please get vaccinated, keep your masks on, and maintain social distances. If you would like a free vaccine, please call 213-473-7001 or contact me at [email protected].

This week I honored members of our armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of all of us at the El Rio Veterans Memorial Day Commemoration. I was pleased to present an American flag to Terry Perez, daughter of John P. Perez who served in World War II and who lived in Highland Park for over 60 years.

When it’s too hot for you, it’s even hotter for your four-legged friends. Too much heat can be extremely dangerous or even fatal for companion animals. Read the Hot Weather Tips for your Cats and Dogs below.

The City Council has officially opened public comments for both of Highland Park Heritage Trust’s Historic-Cultural Monument (HCM) nominations of the Mechicano Arts Center and the Centro de Arte Público. Please join me in supporting these nominations.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Friends,

This week, Council passed three funding items for the First District:

  • On Tuesday, we were given an allocation in Prop K assessment funds.  Prop K is primarily a source for park funding established many years ago by former Councilmember Mike Hernandez. 
  • On Wednesday, the Homeless, Housing, Assistance, and Prevention (HHAP) Program provided funding for our Mobile and Shower Services.
  • Finally, in response to a motion I introduced last year, the CAO was able to find funding earmarked for much-needed health, safety, and security measures within the vicinity of the Elysian Park Radio Hill Tower.  This tower is an important communications hub for LAPD and LAFD.  The recent increase in fires and the growing number of homeless encampments have been a growing concern for the residents, law enforcement, fire and park department staff. 

As always, my field team was there to listen and acted as quickly as possible in addressing what could be a clear and present danger to the community.  I would also like to thank the CAO and the rest of the City family.  This City wouldn't be where we are, without you.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo honored members of our armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice on behalf of all of us at the El Rio Veterans Memorial Day Commemoration. Bob Ramirez served as master of ceremonies and the program included Councilmember Cedillo presenting an American flag to Terry Perez, daughter of John P. Perez who served in World War II and who lived in Highland Park for over 60 years. John landed on the beach of Normandy. The next day John fought his way through France. After liberating France from Germany’s occupation, he took part in marching through The Arc De Triumph on the Av. Del Champs-Elysees. John’s company proceeded to liberate Belgium and Norway, subsequently, his company was sent to Germany where he stepped on a landmine and was seriously injured.

Too Much Heat Can Be Dangerous For Our Companion Animals

Dog Fan

When it’s too hot for you, it’s even hotter for your four-legged friends. As Southern California starts to see warmer weather, Los Angeles Animal Services would like to remind you that too much heat can be extremely dangerous or even fatal for companion animals. 

Keep in mind that dogs and cats try to cool themselves by panting or rapid breathing and do not sweat through their skin.

Hot Weather Tips for Cats and Dogs:

Never leave your pet alone inside a vehicle. If your pet cannot go inside at every stop with you, they are safer at home on hot days. A car can overheat even when the window has been opened slightly. Even if the temperature isn’t too hot outside, your car can get up to 20 degrees warmer. Always check to make sure that dogs are welcome where you are going, otherwise leave them at home.

Give your pet extra water. Always make sure that your dog or cat has plenty of fresh water to drink. A bucket that holds a gallon or more of water will stay cooler much longer than water in a shallow pan. If your dog enjoys ice cubes as a treat, add them to the bowl!

Cat Drinking Water

Avoid hot ground surfaces. While walking your dog outdoors, pay particular attention to the pavement, sidewalks, or sand. Check the temperature with your hand. If it’s too hot to touch, then it’s too hot for your dog’s paws. If it’s 92 degrees outside, concrete or asphalt can reach up to 130 degrees.

Dog in Tub - Photo Credit Pet Coach

Don’t leave your pet outdoors for a long time. If your dog has to be left outdoors for a while, make sure they have plenty of access to shade such as trees, a covered patio, or a cool spot under the porch. Apply a pet-specific or hypoallergenic sunscreen on sensitive areas like the nose, tips of ears, and belly especially if they have light or thin fur.

Cat drinking ice Photo Credit Catster

Know the signs of overheating. If your dog or cat begins very rapid, noisy breathing has trouble swallowing and starts to look very distressed, they could be having a heatstroke. Get the animal out of the heat. Apply cold, wet towels to the back of the head. Place cold packs wrapped in towels or plain wet towels between the back legs and on the belly. Cool off your pet and take them to the veterinarian immediately.

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana, los casos de Covid-19 en el Distrito 1 aumentaron de 70 a 251 y las muertes aumentaron de 6 a 9. Tenemos que vacunarnos, usar mascarillas y mantener la sana distancia siempre. Sólo así podremos superar esta pandemia todos juntos.

Entregué un reconocimiento a Munson Kwok como uno de los cuatro homenajeados por el Mes de la Herencia Estadounidense Asiática del Pacífico. Kwok ha trabajado en varias organizaciones chino-estadounidenses y estamos agradecidos por sus contribuciones al gran Los Ángeles y al Distrito 1.

Estoy muy contento de informarles que mis puestos de vacunación suministraron 12,145 dosis. Muchas gracias a mi personal, colaboradores y voluntarios que hicieron esto posible. Nuestro puesto de vacunación en Glassell Park Recreation Center que proporciona segundas dosis y vacunas J&J está disponible desde el martes 1 de junio al sábado 5 de junio, de 9 am a 2 pm. Esta será la última semana de nuestro puesto en este lugar. Para saber dónde obtener una vacuna después del 5 de junio, llama al (213) 473-7001 o escríbeme a [email protected]

Por otra parte, agradezco al Departamento de Planificación de Los Ángeles por atender mi moción y publicar un informe solicitando una estrategia de vivienda más equitativa para distribuir viviendas asequibles en toda la ciudad. También me complace que los propietarios de Grand Plaza Senior Apartments decidieran mantener las rentas asequibles al extender los convenios que benefician a los inquilinos de 302 viviendas.

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó una moción para invertir $5.5 millones en personas y programas para marcar una diferencia en nuestra comunidad. A medida que la ciudad comienza a normalizarse, me complace compartir que la biblioteca de Cypress Park está reabriendo y que el Departamento de Recreación y Parques (RAP) está reiniciando sus programas de verano para jóvenes y niños.

¡Vacúnate y salva vidas!

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó mi moción para extender los alquileres asequibles en Grand Plaza Senior Apartments en Chinatown por otros 30 años. Son en total 302 viviendas asequibles con unidades de ingresos bajos y muy bajos para personas mayores en el Distrito 1. Construido en 1991 con un préstamo de la antigua Agencia de Reurbanización Comunitaria, el complejo estaba sujeto a un convenio de asequibilidad que expiró en 2019. El nuevo acuerdo protegerá a todos los inquilinos existentes de por vida y restringirá las rentas de rotación durante 30 años.

Grand Plaza Apartments

Grand Plaza Senior Apartments

La Ciudad corre el riesgo de perder miles de unidades de vivienda asequibles a medida que expiren convenios regulatorios que se registran en una propiedad para garantizar la asequibilidad a largo plazo, a menudo a cambio de un subsidio público o un bono de densidad. Muchos de estos convenios están cerca de caducar, lo que eliminaría los controles y permitiría al propietario aumentar los alquileres a la tasa promedio de mercado.

Distrito 1 se ve afectado por la expiración de convenios regulatorios porque provocarían el desplazamiento de hogares de bajos ingresos y personas mayores. Los datos del Departamento de Vivienda + Inversión Comunitaria indican que 1,839 apartamentos asequibles están en riesgo en el Distrito 1 desde julio del 2016 hasta diciembre del 2021, mientras que 11,412 unidades están en riesgo en toda la ciudad, lo cual es inaceptable. Es fundamental que la Ciudad construya más viviendas de muy bajos ingresos para la fuerza laboral y al mismo tiempo también debemos preservar las viviendas asequibles ya existentes.

En el Distrito 1 nos complace la unidad de la Ciudad y los propietarios de Grand Plaza Senior Apartments para encontrar una solución de mutuo acuerdo para ampliar la asequibilidad. Continuamos abordando el desafío de los convenios vencidos inminentes que ponen en riesgo la vivienda asequible en toda la ciudad.

REPORTE DE VIVIENDA

Concejal agradece al Departamento de Planificación de Los Ángeles por el informe que pide una estrategia de vivienda más equitativa

El Concejal Gil Cedillo agradeció al Departamento de Planificación de Los Ángeles por atender sus objetivos y emitir un informe solicitando una estrategia de vivienda más equitativa. El informe es resultado directo de la moción del concejal Cedillo sobre la distribución equitativa de viviendas asequibles en toda la ciudad.

En marzo del 2018, el Concilio se comprometió unánimemente a conseguir un mínimo de 222 unidades de vivienda de apoyo permanente en cada distrito para julio del 2020. Eso es 3,330 unidades en total, aproximadamente un tercio de la meta de 10,000 unidades de la Ciudad. El objetivo de 222 unidades era el mínimo, no el máximo.

El Distrito 1 superó en gran medida la promesa de 222 unidades de cada Distrito con 15 desarrollos de viviendas de apoyo que se han construido, están en construcción o en etapas de planificación que generarán un total de 2,254 unidades de viviendas de apoyo con proyectos financiados por HHH. Además, se han completado y alquilado 144 unidades de apoyo en cinco proyectos financiados con distintos fondos de HHH.

Distrito 1 es el número uno en comparación con todos los distritos del Concilio. Es fundamental que las unidades de vivienda asequibles se distribuyan de manera equitativa, ya que la asequibilidad y la prevención de la falta de vivienda afectan a todos los distritos.

Vivienda Asequible

La moción solicitó que el Departamento de Planificación de la Ciudad y el HCID informaran sus recomendaciones sobre políticas y estrategias a corto y largo plazo para abordar la distribución equitativa de nuevas unidades de viviendas asequibles restringidas dentro de la Ciudad y promover afirmativamente la vivienda justa, incluida la identificación de mínimos requisitos de vivienda asequible en áreas de altos recursos / oportunidades y desarrollo de incentivos para la provisión de vivienda asequible en estas geografías.

“Keep LA Beautiful” otorga fondos de $2,500 para proyectos de embellecimiento de la comunidad

Quienes vivimos en Los Ángeles tenemos algo pequeño o grande que nos molesta al pasar camino a la escuela, al trabajo o a la tienda de la esquina. Puede ser una banqueta llena de basura o una pared cubierta de grafitis cargados de insultos.

Un nuevo programa comunitario espera solucionar estas incomodidades urbanas. Financiados por “Keep Los Angeles Beautiful” y administrados por la Oficina de Embellecimiento Comunitario de la Ciudad, se destinarán nuevos fondos para grupos comunitarios con ideas para transformar espacios públicos en escenarios mas limpios, ecológicos y atractivos.

“Keep Los Angeles Beautiful” otorgará hasta $2,500 a 15 grupos comunitarios para proyectos de embellecimiento. Los proyectos podrían incluir desde obras de jardinería, murales, bancas, letreros y hasta contenedores de basura.

Keep LA Beautiful

Las organizaciones pueden solicitar los recursos para sus obras de embellecimiento antes del 30 de junio. Se otorgarán subvenciones de hasta $2,500 a 15 grupos comunitarios durante este año fiscal, con otra ronda programada para el 2022. Los grupos elegibles pueden ser desde dos personas que representan a un vecindario o a una organización sin fines de lucro. Incluyen grupos de vecinos, asociaciones de propietarios de viviendas, distritos empresariales, cámaras de comercio y comités de embellecimiento de consejos de vecinos.

No son elegibles individuos, empresas individuales, departamentos de la ciudad, grupos políticos, instituciones religiosas ni administraciones de escuelas privadas.

Los lugares propuestos para una obra de embellecimiento deben estar ubicados dentro de la ciudad de Los Ángeles y ser de acceso público. Estos lugares pueden ser banquetas, avenidas y paredes (incluso si son propiedad de la biblioteca o de escuelas públicas). Los proyectos pueden ser tan diversos como paisajismo, mercados sobre ruedas, plantaciones de árboles, murales, bancos, letreros, basureros y jardines.

La Oficina de Embellecimiento de la Comunidad ayudará a adquirir y pagar los permisos de proyectos que se hagan en propiedades públicas, lo que permitirá que el monto total de la subvención se destine al proyecto en sí. Los proyectos que se lleven a cabo en la propiedad de alguna escuela necesitarán permiso de la escuela, mientras que aquellos diseñados en una propiedad privada necesitarán permiso del dueño.

Dear Friend,

This week in CD 1 cases went up from 70 to 251 and deaths went up from 6 to 9. We must be vigilant in getting vaccinated, keeping our masks on, and maintaining social distances. We must do this to overcome this pandemic.

I honored Munson Kwok as my last honoree for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. He has served several Chinese American organizations and we are grateful for the wonderful contributions he has made to greater Los Angeles and CD 1.

I am so pleased that my vaccination sites have administered 12,145 doses. Thank you to my staff, partners, and volunteers that made this possible. This is the last week of our vaccination sites with Glassell Park Recreation Center providing second doses and J & J vaccines from Tuesday, June 1st to Saturday, June 5th, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. To find out where to get a vaccine after June 5th please call 213-473-7001 or contact me at [email protected].

I thank the Los Angeles Planning Department for executing my motion by issuing a report calling for a More Equitable Housing Strategy on the distribution of affordable housing on a citywide basis. I am also pleased that the owners of the Grand Plaza Senior Apartments maintained affordability by extending expiring covenants for tenants living in their 302 units.

This week the Council passed a motion that invests $5.5 million in people and programs to make a difference. As the City begins to open, I am also happy to share that the Cypress Park Library is reopening, and the Department of Recreation and Parks is restarting its youth recreation programs this summer!

Be safe and get vaccinated!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo has known Munson for over twenty years since he began his service in elected office in the State Assembly. One cannot mention Chinatown without referencing one of its most ardent advocates and community leaders, Munson A. Kwok. Throughout his years of public service, he has presided over several Chinese American organizations, including the Chinese Citizen Alliance, the Chinese Historical Society, the Chinese Benevolent Consolidated Association, and the Chinese American Museum.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo interviewed Munson Kwok on a special show featuring the honorees from each Councilmember for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Councilmember Cedillo’s interview of Munson Kwok begins on minute 16.37.

Councilmember Cedillo spoke out against Anti-Asian Hate at the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Day of Service in Chinatown. It has been a traumatic year for many in the AAPI community, particularly with the rise in violence and hate-related attacks throughout the pandemic. Councilmember Cedillo believes that through something as simple as this, we can show strong support for and help raise the spirits of our AAPI community during the Community Service Day.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

This week, the City Council approved my motion to extend the affordability at the Grand Plaza Senior Apartments in Chinatown for another 30 years.  It is a 302-unit affordable housing development consisting of low and very low-income units for seniors located at 601 N. Grand Avenue in Council District 1. Originally built in 1991 with a loan from the former Community Redevelopment Agency, the apartment complex was subject to a  CRA/LA affordability covenant which expired in 2019.  The new agreement will protect all of the existing tenants for life and restrict turnover rents for 30 years.

Grand Plaza Apartments

Grand Plaza Senior Apartments

The City is at risk of losing thousands of affordable housing units through the impending expiration of regulatory covenants. Regulatory covenants are recorded on a property to ensure the long-term affordability of units, often in return for a public subsidy or density bonus. Many covenants are now reaching an expiration date, which would effectively remove affordability requirements, and allow an owner to raise rents to market rate.

Council District 1 is critically impacted by expiring covenants that may lead to the displacement of low-income and senior households. Housing + Community Investment Department data indicates that from July 2016 to December 2021, 1,839 affordable units are at risk in CD1 alone, while 11,412 units are at risk citywide. This is unacceptable. While it is critical that the City build more very low income to workforce housing, we must simultaneously preserve existing affordable housing.

Council District 1 is pleased that the owners of the Grand Plaza Senior Apartments and the City came together to find a mutually agreeable path forward to extend affordability.  We continue to advocate for addressing the challenge of impending expiring covenants placing affordable housing at-risk citywide.

Housing Update

Councilmember Gil Cedillo Thanks the Los Angeles Planning Department For Executing His Goals by Issuing a Report Calling for a More Equitable Housing Strategy

Councilmember Gil Cedillo thanked the Los Angeles Planning Department for executing his goals by issuing a report calling for a More Equitable Housing Strategy. The report is a direct result of Councilmember Cedillo’s motion on equitable distribution of affordable housing on a citywide basis.

On March 20, 2018, the City Council pledged unanimously to support a minimum of 222 units of permanent supportive housing in each of their districts by July 1, 2020. That is 3,330 units in total—or about one-third of the City’s 10,000-unit goal. The goal of 222 units should serve as the floor and not the ceiling.

CD1 has greatly exceeded each Council District’s pledge of 222 units with 15 supportive housing developments that have been built, are in construction or in the planning stages which will generate a total of 2,254 supportive housing units, which are HHH-funded supportive housing projects. In addition, 144 supportive units in five projects funded through dollars other than HHH have been completed and leased up. We are number one compared to all other council districts. It is crucial that affordable housing units are equitably distributed as affordability and the prevention of homelessness impact all council districts.

economics-clipart-affordable-housing-3

The motion requested that the Los Angeles City Planning Department and the Housing + Community Investment Department report with recommendations on short-term and long-term policies and programmatic strategies to address the equitable distribution of new restricted affordable housing units within the City and affirmatively further fair housing, including identification of minimum affordable housing requirements in high resource/high opportunity areas and developing incentives for the provision of affordable housing in these geographies.

Keep LA Beautiful to Award $2,500 Grants For Community Beautification Projects

Most people who live in LA have a pet peeve eyesore. Maybe it is an overgrown median they drive by every day on the way to work. Perhaps it is a sidewalk littered with trash or a wall covered in expletive-laden graffiti.

So, a new community grant program is hoping to clean things up. Funded by Keep Los Angeles Beautiful, a volunteer organization managed by the City’s Office of Community Beautification, the new grants will be made available to community-based groups with ideas for making public spaces throughout Los Angeles cleaner, greener, and more alluring.

Keep Los Angeles Beautiful will award grants of up to $2,500 to 15 community-based groups for beautification projects. The grants are for projects that will make public spaces in LA cleaner, greener, and more beautiful. Projects could include landscaping, murals, benches, signs, and trash receptacles

Keep LA Beautiful

Applications for the community beautification grants are due June 30. The new program will award grants of up to $2,500 to 15 community groups this fiscal year, with another round of grants and funding made available in 2022. Eligible groups can be as informal as a pair of individuals representing a neighborhood or as large as a nationally recognized nonprofit. They include neighborhood block groups, homeowners associations, business improvement districts, chambers of commerce, and neighborhood council beautification committees.

Individuals, single businesses, city departments, political groups, religious institutions, and private school administrations are not eligible.

The proposed sites for beautification must be located within the city of LA’s boundaries and be publicly accessible. Street medians, sidewalks, parkways, library property, and public-school campuses are all fair game for projects as diverse as landscaping, neighborhood markets, tree plantings, murals, benches, signs, trash receptacles, and gardens.

The Office of Community Beautification will assist with acquiring and paying for permits on projects to be completed on public property, enabling the full grant amount to go toward the project itself. Projects that would take place on school property would need permission from the school, whereas those designed for private property would need permission from the property owner.

Proposal-RFP-graphic_3

The community beautification proposals will be evaluated for the thought process that went into the chosen location, their maintenance plans, and what the community group plans to build.

Groups whose proposals are accepted would need to provide a 25% matching fund, which could include the value of discounts and donated materials as well as volunteer time valued at $27.20 per hour.

The Office of Community Beautification is accepting applications for the first round of community beautification grant funds through June 30. Grant proposal applications can be downloaded at www.laocb.org and submitted via email to [email protected].

El Concejal Cedillo fue mucho más allá del objetivo. El Distrito 1 tiene 15 desarrollos de vivienda de apoyo en etapas de planificación y/o en construcción, que generarán un total de 2,254 vivienda de apoyo, como proyectos financiados por HHH. Además, se han completado y alquilado 144 unidades de apoyo en 5 proyectos financiados con fondos distintos de HHH. El Concejal del Distrito 1 es el número uno en comparación con todos los demás concejales. Como se puede ver en estas fotos, los proyectos en CD 1 son de la más alta calidad.

El Alcalde Eric Garcetti anunció medidas para ampliar el acceso a las vacunas entre los Angelinos, como: Extender el horario hasta las 8 pm en nueve centros administrados por la ciudad; administrar las tres vacunas aprobadas y ofrecer la vacuna sin cita previa en toda la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Estas medidas se realizaron inmediatamente después del anuncio de que los niños de 12 a 15 años ya son elegibles para vacunarse.

Los angelinos que visiten cualquier sitio fijo con horario extendido podrán elegir entre cualquiera de las tres vacunas disponibles actualmente: Pfizer, Moderna y Johnson & Johnson. No se requiere preinscripción o cita previa, pero para planificar con anticipación puedes hacer una cita en Coronavirus.LACity.org/GetVaccinated en donde también puedes encontrar el puesto de vacunación más cercano a tu domicilio.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

El presidente del presupuesto, Paul Krekorian dijo que "la preparación del plan de gastos de este año ha sido un momento como ningún otro para esta ciudad, para este comité y para este Concilio". Yo agregaría que el presupuesto de este año no tiene precedentes en su compromiso con la justicia y la equidad. El 2021 será recordado como el año de redención y recuperación de la ciudad más grande del estado más rico de la nación más poderosa del mundo. Como sede de las Olimpíadas dentro de unos pocos años, Los Ángeles será reconocida como uno de los mejores lugares del mundo para vivir: Una ciudad y una población fortalecidos por la diversidad pero con un propósito unificado.

Aun hay tarea pendiente. Los invito a participar en las próximas audiencias públicas del Comité de Presupuesto a partir del lunes 31 de mayo.

Dear Friend,

Ending and preventing homelessness is one of my top priorities. My commitment to housing the unhoused and providing a continuum of care to our unhoused neighbors is a matter of record.  This week I share with you the array of services I provided to the unhoused in the first quarter of 2021.

This year's budget is unprecedented in its commitment to justice and equity. This week I introduced eleven essential budget recommendations for the First District.

As we continue celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I honor the World Korean Foundation (WKA). The mission of the World Korean Foundation is to celebrate Korean Day and support community services.

With nearly 56 % of Los Angeles County residents not yet fully vaccinated, masking and distancing are still critical strategies for us. The LA County Health Officer Order remains in effect, and masks are still required in settings described in the order. 

If you need anything from my office, please call 213-473-7001 or contact me at [email protected].

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO WEEKLY

Week of May 17 to 21, 2021

Councilmember Gil Cedillo’s First Quarter 2021 Homeless Services Report on How He is Helping Our Unhoused Neighbors in CD 1

MARMION Way Apartments

Marmion Way Permanent Supportive Housing in Cypress Park

On March 20, 2018, L.A. City Councilmembers pledged unanimously to support a minimum of 222 units of permanent supportive housing in each of their districts by July 1, 2020. That is 3,330 units in total—or about one-third of the City’s 10,000-unit goal. 222 was just the start.

The-Six-dusk

The Six Apartments - Permanent Supportive Housing in Westlake

Councilmember Cedillo is way beyond his goal. CD 1 has 15 supportive housing developments either in the planning stages or under construction, which will generate a total of 2,254 supportive housing units that are HHH-funded supportive housing projects. In addition, 144 supportive units in five projects funded through dollars other than HHH have been completed and leased up. We are number one compared to all other councilmembers. As you can see from these photos, the projects in CD 1 are of the highest quality.

The CD1 PATH Outreach Team focus is to engage, motivate, and help people experiencing homelessness find solutions to help them while living in an encampment or vehicle that can lead to moving off the streets into housing.

Mobile Pit Stop Had 56,800 Visits

Mobile Pit Stop #1

Mobile Pit Stop #2

In 2018, Council District 1 deployed a Mobile Pit stop in the district to provide access to safe and sanitary restrooms that are staffed by attendants. It soon after became the most highly accessed Mobile Pit Stop facility in the City, proving to be a vital service that needs to be continued.

Mobile Laundry Truck Provided 1,364 Loads

Laundry Truck LA

Councilmember Cedillo secured funding to be the only Council District providing the Laundry Truck LA, which offers free mobile laundry services to the homeless until we house everyone. In 2020, we expanded this free service from 2 days a week to 5 days a week. We aim to operate daily starting in July 2021.

Shower of Hope Provided Mobile Showers for 2,326 Guests

Shower of Hope

To address public health concerns and the personal welfare of unhoused neighbors, in 2018, Council District 1 was the first office to partner with The Shower of Hope to launch mobile showers across the district. We are now deploying our showers 7 days a week. We believe that it is critical to provide hygiene services for our unhoused neighbors.

RV Mobile Waste Disposal Program With 155 Participants

RV Waste Disposal Site in Lincoln Heights Provided by Councilmember Gil Cedillo

In 2018, Council District 1 opened up an RV Waste Disposal Program, providing free waste disposal to RV-dwelling neighbors. Each participant is able to receive free waste pumping services for their RV at a City facility in our district. This program ensures we help properly dispose of hazardous waste and maintains health conditions for our RV owners. We believe that it is critical to provide a spectrum of services for our unhoused neighbors in Council District 1. Team Cedillo aims to provide dignity and health to our unhoused neighbors. 

Safe Parking Sites in Westlake With 286 Vehicles and 300 guests and in Glassell Park With 209 Vehicles and 286 Guests

Safe Parking Site in Westlake Provided by Councilmember Gil Cedillo

The Safe Parking Program in Westlake and Glassell Park offers a safe place for people living in their vehicles to sleep, access hygiene services, have meals and get connected to services. Each site provides restrooms, hand washing stations, and weekly mobile laundry. Participants are connected to our mobile shower program that operates daily at locations across the district.

In 2019, Councilmember Cedillo opened Casa Azul- A Bridge Home offering 41 beds to single women and women with children in a uniquely designed and decorated home environment. Casa Azul, the Blue House, was named in homage to the home (and now museum) of the world-renowned Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo, located in Mexico City. Another option to come indoors is our Echo Park Community Shelter with 27 beds. We welcome our unhoused neighbors who need a place to stay.

Team Cedillo has one hotel with 91 rooms and 273 guests that are part of Project Homekey that will transition from being an interim shelter site to become permanent housing. We are actively looking for more sites and aim to bring on more hotels soon.

We believe that it is critical to provide options to our unhoused neighbors whether interim shelter or safe parking while we work toward the ultimate goal of permanent housing. We are committed to being part of the solution to help our unhoused neighbors.

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a series of steps to expand vaccine access among Angelenos. Efforts include extending hours to 8 p.m. at nine fixed City-run sites; administering all three approved vaccines at mass vaccination centers; and offering doses appointment-free across Los Angeles. These increases in operations come on the heels of the announcement by public health professionals that 12- to 15-year-olds are eligible to get vaccinated.

Angelenos who visit any fixed site with extended hours will be able to choose from any of the three vaccines currently available: Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. Pre-registration is not required, but Angelenos who wish to plan ahead can visit Coronavirus.LACity.org/GetVaccinated to sign up or find the locations nearest to them.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.

Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

As Budget Chair Paul Krekorian said, "...the preparation of this year's spending plan has been a time like no other for this city, this committee, and this council."  This year's budget is unprecedented in its commitment towards justice and equity.  2021 will be remembered as the year of redemption and recovery for the largest city in the richest state in the most powerful nation in the world.   After we host the most successful Olympics just a few years from now, Los Angeles will find its rightful place as one of the world's best places to live.  A City and a people strengthened by diversity and unified in purpose.  

But the work is not over.  Councilmember Cedillo invites you to participate in the upcoming Budget Committee hearings starting as early as Monday, May 31st.

Amigos y amigas:

Estoy muy contento porque la vacuna Pfizer ya esta aprobada y disponible para jóvenes de 12 a 16 años. Lleva a tus hijos a vacunar en alguno de nuestros puestos de vacunación gratuita. Esto ayudará a lograr una inmunidad colectiva y poner fin a esta pandemia. Pero solo podremos lograrlo con tu participación. Por el bienestar y salud de tu familia y tu comunidad ¡Vacúnate ya!

Sé que muchos de ustedes ya se vacunaron, pero aún hay quienes no lo han hecho. Por eso mantengo mi campaña “Vacúnate” y el alcalde Garcetti también lanzó la campaña “Vacúnate Ya, Los Ángeles”.

En México, Guatemala y El Salvador, el Día de las Madres se celebra el 10 de mayo, así es que celebramos doble a las mamás del Distrito 1.

Esta semana les presento a Joanne Kumamoto, a quien reconocemos sus contribuciones con motivo del Mes de la Herencia Estadounidense Asiática del Pacífico.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Esta semana el Concilio aprobó dos mociones importantes.

Estas mociones son una bendición. Se refieren a los cambios de la Administración Trump a la Regla de Carga Pública en relación al impacto migratorio y al llamado “Flores Settlement Agreement”.

La primer moción propone una nueva regla para cambiar la definición de "carga pública" en el Manual de Asuntos Exteriores del Departamento de Estado en el criterio que decide si se permite el ingreso de un extranjero a los Estados Unidos.

La segunda, se refiere al intento de la Administración Trump de utilizar la separación familiar forzada como pretexto para no cumplir con las disposiciones de bienestar infantil observadas en el acuerdo “Flores Settlement Agreement”.

La Administración Biden ha revertido estas acciones atroces de la Administración Trump. Ahora son cosa del pasado, y es por eso que las acciones del Concilio para tomar nota y archivar dichas mociones son una bendición.

Por otra parte, HCID aprobó dos proyectos en el Distrito 1 los apartamentos Grandview y Menlo Avenue para solicitar la Ronda 6 de los fondos de Vivienda Asequible y Comunidades Sostenibles. El Departamento de Vivienda y Desarrollo Comunitario del estado tiene $240 millones en fondos de AHSC disponibles.

REPORTE DE VIVIENDA

Concejal presenta una resolución para pedir al estado de California el uso del superávit estatal para preservar convenios de vivienda asequible

El Concejal Gil Cedillo presentó una Resolución para que la Ciudad incluya en su Programa Legislativo Estatal 2021-2022 el apoyo y/o patrocinio, legislación o acción administrativa que proporcionen fondos para preservar los convenios de vivienda asequible.

Los Ángeles corre el riesgo de perder más de 9,500 viviendas asequibles debido al vencimiento inminente de convenios regulatorios en los próximos años. Estos convenios regulatorios se registran en una propiedad para garantizar la asequibilidad a largo plazo de las unidades, a cambio de un subsidio público o un bono de densidad. Muchos convenios están por vencer, lo que eliminaría los requisitos de asequibilidad, permitiendo al propietario aumentar las rentas a precio de mercado.

“La ciudad y el estado deben construir más viviendas de bajos ingresos para la fuerza laboral, pero al mismo tiempo debemos hacer cumplir enérgicamente las leyes locales y estatales para preservar las viviendas asequibles existentes. Debemos desarrollar e implementar un plan con soluciones inmediatas y de largo plazo para proteger a los inquilinos del aumento de los alquileres”, dijo Cedillo. "El plan debe incorporar las mejores prácticas, recomendar estrategias para extender los convenios que están a punto de expirar y retrasar cualquier aumento de alquiler".

Cedillo sugiere que parte del superávit del presupuesto de Sacramento estimado en $38 mil millones sea destinado a estrategias innovadoras para preservar la vivienda.

El Concejal Cedillo lucha para evitar el desalojo de una familia cuya casa fue embargada injustamente por Wells Fargo Bank. La historia en Primer Impacto de Univision.

“El concejal que representa esta parte de Los Ángeles, Gil Cedillo asegura que las acciones del nuevo propietario son contra la ley y se comprometió a apoyar a Leyda y su familia”, dijo la reportera de Univision Paula Rosado.

"¿Cómo puede suceder esto durante el COVID-19, y con una moratoria que tenemos para proteger a los inquilinos? No es posible", dijo Cedillo. "De inmediato hablé con mi jefa de personal y le dije que este caso es un abuso".

“Mientras tanto, el Departamento de Vivienda ha enviado cartas a los nuevos propietarios y sus abogados denunciando su acción. Asimismo, la oficina del Concejal Cedillo se comprometió a frenar el desalojo de Leyda y su madre ayudándoles a encontrar una mejor solución”, concluyó Primer Impacto.

  • Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Honorees

 

 

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

I am excited that the Pfizer Vaccine has been approved for 12-16-year-olds. You can now bring your children to our vaccination sites. This will make your families healthier so we can achieve herd immunity to finally end this pandemic. But we can only achieve that with your family’s full participation.

Although many of you have been vaccinated, we still need a ways to go to. That is why I continue my “Get Vaccinated” campaign and now Mayor Garcetti launched “Vacúnate Ya, Los Ángeles/Get Vaccinated, L.A.” Let us bring it home. Everyone please get vaccinated!

In Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador, Mother’s Day or Día de Las Madres is celebrated on May 10th. So, we recognized our wonderful moms a second day.

My honoree for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this week is Joanne Kumamoto. Joanne has contributed much to the Asian Pacific American community and the City of Los Angeles overall.

I wish you a great week. If you need anything from my office, please call 213-473-7001 or contact me at [email protected].

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Council approved significant items this week. 

For these two items, I consider it a blessing.  Both pertain to the Trump Administration's changes to the Public Charge Rule as well as its actions related to immigration and the Flores Settlement Agreement.  The former proposed a new rule that would change the definition of 'public charge' in the State Department Foreign Affairs Manual as the basis to decide whether to grant a person permission to enter the United States.  The latter was an attempt by the Trump Administration to use the forced family separation as a basis for relieving the Trump Administration from complying with the critical child welfare provisions in the Flores settlement.  The reports have since been rendered moot by the Biden Administration's reversal of most, if not all of the egregious actions made by the Trump Administration.  It is for this reason that the Council actions to note and file said items, are a blessing indeed.  And the actions of a previous Administration, a thing of the past. 

Meanwhile, two of our CD 1 projects, the Grandview Apartments, and the Menlo Avenue Apartments, have been approved by HCID to apply for the Round 6 Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) Program funds by the state Department of Housing and Community Development Department.  The available funds total $240 million dollars.

HOUSING UPDATE

Councilmember Gil Cedillo Introduces Resolution to Ask State of California to Support the Use of State Budget Surplus to Preserve Affordable Housing Covenants

Affordable Housing 2

Councilmember Gil Cedillo introduced a Resolution that would have the City of Los Angeles include in its 2021-2022 State Legislative Program to support and/or sponsor legislation or administrative action that would provide funding to preserve affordable housing covenants.

Los Angeles is at risk of losing over 9,500 affordable housing units through the impending expiration of regulatory covenants over the next several years. Regulatory covenants are recorded on a property to ensure the long-term affordability of units, often in return for a public subsidy or density bonus. Many covenants are now reaching an expiration date, which would effectively remove affordability requirements, and allow an owner to raise rents to market rate.

“While it is critical that the city and state build more very-low-income to workforce housing, we must simultaneously preserve existing affordable housing and continue to aggressively enforce local and state law and prioritize eligible revenues for the preservation of housing. We must urgently develop and implement a plan that has immediate and long-term solutions to protect residents from rising rent increases,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “The plan should incorporate the most effective best practices, recommend strategies for negotiating extensions of expiring covenants, and slow rent increases resulting from expiring covenants,”

It is anticipated that the State budget will have an estimated $38 billion surplus, of which the Councilmember is suggesting that a portion should be proposed for innovative housing preservation strategies.

Councilmember Cedillo Fights to Prevent Eviction of the Paz Family

Councilmember Cedillo fought to prevent the eviction of a family whose home was unjustly foreclosed upon by Wells Fargo Bank. View the story on Univision’s Primer Impacto.

“The elected councilman who runs this part of Los Angeles, Gil Cedillo assures that the new owner's practices go against the law and he pledged to support Leyda and her family”, stated Paula Rosado, reporter, Primer Impacto, Univision National News.

"How does this case happen during COVID-19, during this moratorium that we have to protect the tenants, how does this case happen? It's not possible, stated Councilmember Gil Cedillo.  “How can it be? And I immediately spoke to my Chief of Staff and I tell her that this case is not possible, it is not possible, it is an abuse.”

“Meanwhile, the Housing Department has sent letters to new owners and their lawyers denouncing their action. Likewise, Councilman Cedillo's office pledged to stop the eviction of Leyda and her mother by helping them find a better solution,” concluded Primer Impacto host.

Dear Friend,

This week we distributed gift bags to our wonderful mothers in CD 1. Thank you, mothers, for all that you do for our families.

Esta semana tengo el honor de presentarle a Theresa May de Vera:

“Mis padres me inculcaron los valores de la familia y la fe. La familia de mi padre vive a menos de 10 millas de nosotros. Crecí asistiendo a una escuela católica y cuando ocurrió mi "incidente", nuestra fe se puso a prueba porque todas las probabilidades estaban en contra.

Sin embargo, el Día de Orientación Académica para Discapacidades de la Universidad de Loyola en el 2001 conocí a mi increíble mentor, el presidente David Burcham; volví a presentar mi solicitud en la misma escuela de leyes que obligadamente dejé.

“En el 2002, re ingresé a la Universidad Loyola Marymount para terminar mi licenciatura en Ciencias Políticas y mi sueño se realizó al recibir mi diploma en el 2008.

“Después de mi 'incidente' quería asegurarme de que ninguna otra familia sufriera como nosotros: La incertidumbre de no saber si tu hijo se despertará, qué esperar cuando se despierte o que hacer cuando tenta que regresar a casa.

“Después de escuchar mi historia en el 2005, Loyola Marymount University me dio la oportunidad de obtener un título de posgrado. Se gradué con una Maestría en Teología Pastoral en el 2008 con énfasis en bioética.

“He sido bendecido de muchas maneras y tengo la suerte de ser la voz de quienes sienten que sus inquietudes no se escuchan en el Ayuntamiento.

“Me apasiona ayudar a los demás. Tengo reconocimientos a nivel federal, estatal, local y de varias organizaciones, pero mi mayor recompensa es la sonrisa de alguien cuando me dice que he hecho una diferencia en su vida”.

“Fui nombrada por el alcalde Antonio Villaraigosa y ratificada por el alcalde Eric Garcetti para servir en la Comisión de Discapacidad de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles. Es una experiencia de humildad servir a los residentes de Los Ángeles que no tienen voz en la elaboración de políticas y ser la vocera de una de las poblaciones menos representadas de nuestra ciudad. Mis especialidades son Defensora y Activista de Pacientes y Discapacidades, Transporte de Paratránsito y Ley y Código de la ADA".

Me siento profundamente entristecido por la muerte de Cruz Reynoso, el  primer juez latino en la Corte Suprema de California, quien murió el pasado 7 de mayo. Tuve el privilegio de reunirme con él varias veces a lo largo de mi carrera. Una vez que superé la emoción de estar ante su presencia, me impresionó su agudo intelecto, su objetividad y la nitidez de su mentalidad y pensamiento. Más importante aún, me conmovía su amabilidad y generosidad. Fue un pionero, un gigante y producto de las luchas de nuestra comunidad. Fue un hombre amable, gentil y sensible. Siempre te daba un regalo; un libro, una nota, carta o referencia cuando lo visitabas. Fue maravilloso conocerlo. Al mismo tiempo, no era casual en su función. Era un profesional consumado: hacía sus anotaciones, se preparaba, siempre estaba listo. Tuve el honor de que me tomara juramento como miembro del Concilio de Los Ángeles. Nunca lo olvidaré. Mi más sentido pésame a su apreciable familia.

Condado de L.A. llega al nivel amarillo con medidas de seguridad: servicio en interiores para bares y límites de capacidad más altos

El Condado de Los Ángeles alcanzó el nivel amarillo del Plan Estatal para una Economía más Segura. Esta semana, el estado publicó números de niveles de planos actualizados.

  • La tasa de casos ajustada del condado de Los Ángeles se redujo de 1.9 a 1.6 los casos nuevos por cada 100,000 habitantes.
  • La tasa general de casos positivos en pruebas del Covid-19 se redujo de 0.9% al 0.7%.
  • Y en las áreas más vulnerables la tasa de casos positivos en pruebas del Covid-19 en el condado de Los Ángeles se redujo del 1% al 0.8%.

El jueves 6 de mayo entró en vigor una Orden Actualizada de Salud del Condado de Los Ángeles reflejando las actividades recientemente re permitidas. El nivel amarillo permite aumentos en la capacidad en muchos sectores y que los bares comiencen a brindar servicio en interiores al 25% de su capacidad. Estos cambios seguirán requiriendo modificaciones de seguridad, incluyendo mascarillas, sana distancia y el control de infecciones para reducir riesgos de transmisión. Los sectores con aumentos en los límites de capacidad incluyen parques de diversiones y ferias, gimnasios y centros de ejercicio, estudios de yoga, eventos privados, bares, hoteles y alquileres de alojamiento a corto plazo, reuniones privadas, cervecerías, casinos, restaurantes, salas de juego e hipódromos, así como eventos y actuaciones en vivo en interiores y exteriores, bodegas y salas de degustación, centros de entretenimiento familiar y museos, zoológicos y acuarios.

Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

A veces nos cuesta entender cómo una ciudad encuentra su fuerza de manera justificada en la diversidad. ¿Cómo se puede encontrar unidad y consenso con un grupo de seres humanos que hablan diferentes idiomas, practican diferentes culturas y provienen de lugares de todo el mundo?

Esta semana en la reunión de Concilio, el concejal Mike Bonin presentó una moción reconociendo las contribuciones de los migrantes mexicanos y los mexicano-estadounidenses conocidos como los “Traqueros Mexicanos” que construyeron el legendario sistema ferroviario transcontinental. La rica historia y legado de los traqueros mexicanos sería conmemorada con una escultura de bronce, que se colocaría de manera prominente en Venice, en medio de la rotonda Windward, a unos pasos de Venice Beach, en honor a la historia de estos hombres que ha sido casi olvidada por completo. Los traqueros mexicanos surgieron después de que el Congreso aprobara la primera de muchas leyes contra los inmigrantes: La Ley de Exclusión China. Trabajadores migrantes mexicanos y mexicoamericanos que vivían en el área junto a los equipos de inmigrantes chinos y afroamericanos que trabajaron en las vías, se le llamaban "traqueros". Estos hombres rudos se movían conforme el trabajo avanzaba sobre las vías que ellos construían.

Los primeros traqueros eran diferentes en todos los sentidos de la palabra. Rechazados por la sociedad en general, se conectaban entre sí solo por un destino compartido de opresión y el único objetivo de unir a un gran país a través de un poderoso ferrocarril.

La moción para el Monumento a los Traqueros Méxicoamericanos de Venice fue aprobada por unanimidad, 15 a 0. Muchas gracias Concejal Bonin.

Los funcionarios, abogados y concejales de la ciudad de Los Ángeles expresaron sus opiniones sobre el veredicto de culpabilidad de Derek Chauvin. “Se ha hecho justicia”, dijo Gil Cedillo, Concejal de la Ciudad del Distrito 1. “Tengo la esperanza de que esto demuestre que nadie está por encima de la ley. Que descanse en paz George Floyd, y todas las víctimas de la mala conducta policial en donde no se ha hecho justicia. Su asesinato fue el catalizador que condujo al consenso nacional de que las vidas de los negros son importantes".

Cedillo hizo hincapié en la honestidad, la disciplina y la transparencia y dijo: "Ahora es el momento de continuar construyendo un movimiento fuerte por la justicia social como el legado vivo de George Floyd".

Councilmember Cedillo Honors Four Trailblazers in Celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In Celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am highlighting three individuals and one organization who have contributed to the improvement of the Asian Pacific American community. Thank you! #APAHM2021 #AAPIVoices

This week I introduce you to our first trailblazer Theresa May de Vera:

“My parents had always instilled in me the value of family and faith. My father’s family all reside within 10 miles of us. I grew up attending Catholic school and when my “incident” occurred, our faith was put to the test when all the odds were stacked against us. (Insert Link to KNBC story)

As a result of Loyola Law’s Disability Mentoring Day in 2001 and my amazing mentor, President David Burcham, I was inspired and encouraged to re-apply to the school from which I was forced to withdraw.

In 2002, I re-entered Loyola Marymount University to finish my degree in Political Science and my dream culminated when I received my diploma in 2008.

After my “incident”, I wanted to ensure that no other family had to endure what my family had to; the uncertainty of not knowing whether or not their child would wake up, what to expect when their loved one wakes up or comes home.

In 2005, after hearing my story Loyola Marymount University approached me for a Graduate degree. I gladly accepted and completed a Master’s of Pastoral Theology in 2008 with an emphasis in bioethics.

I have been blessed in many ways and am fortunate to be the voice for so many people who feel that their voices are not heard in City Hall.

My passions lay in helping others. I have received numerous recognitions from the federal, state, local levels and from various organizations but the greatest reward is the smile that I receive knowing that I made a difference in somebody’s life.

I was appointed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and reappointed by Mayor Eric Garcetti to serve on the LA City Commission on Disability.  It is a humbling experience to serve the residents of Los Angeles who do not have a voice in policymaking and be the voice for one of our city’s most underrepresented populations. My specialties are Patient and Disability Advocate and Activist, Paratransit Transportation, and ADA Law & Code.”

- Theresa May de Vera

I am deeply saddened by the death of Cruz Reynoso, the first Latino California Supreme Court Justice who left us on Friday, May 7th. I have had the privilege of meeting with him several times over the course of my career. Once I got past the awe of being in his presence, I was impressed by his keen intellect, his sharpness, and the crispness of his mind and thought. More importantly, I was so overwhelmed by his kindness and generosity. He was a pioneer, a giant, and a product of our community’s struggles. He was a kind, gentle and sweet man. He always left you with a gift; a book, note, letter, or reference when he visited with you. It was awesome to be in his presence. At the same time, he was not casual in his presentation. He was the consummate professional, he had his notes, he was prepared, he was ready. I was honored that he swore me in as a member of the Los Angeles City Council. I will never, never forget him. I offer my deepest sympathy, and strength to his family.

L.A. County Meets Yellow Tier Threshold, Indoor Operations for Bars and Higher Capacity Limits with Safety Measures

Yellow Tier Facts

Los Angeles County has met the threshold for the least restrictive yellow tier in the State's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This week, the State released updated blueprint tier numbers; L.A. County's adjusted case rate dropped from 1.9 new cases per 100,000 people to 1.6 new cases per 100,000. The overall test positivity rate dropped from 0.9% to 0.7%, and in areas with the fewest health affirming resources, L.A. County’s test positivity rate dropped from 1.0% to 0.8%.

A revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order went into effect on Thursday, May 6, to reflect newly permitted activities. Moving into the yellow tier allows, for increases in capacity in many sectors and allows bars to begin providing indoor service at 25% capacity. All of these changes will still require safety modifications, including masking, distancing, and infection control to reduce the risk of transmission. The sectors with increases in capacity limits include amusement parks and fairs, gyms and fitness centers, yoga studios, private events, bars, hotels, and short-term lodging rentals, private gatherings, breweries, indoor playgrounds, restaurants, cardrooms and racetracks, indoor and outdoor live events and performances, wineries and tasting rooms, family entertainment centers, and museums, zoos, and aquariums.

County of Los Angeles Public Heath Press Release: LA County Meets Yellow Tier Threshold 

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Many times, we are hard-pressed to understand how a City can justifiably find strength in diversity.  How can one find unity and consensus with a group whose members speak different languages, practice different cultures and come from places all over the world?

This week in Council, Councilman Mike Bonin introduced a motion recognizing the contribution of the Mexican migrants and Mexican-Americans who built the fabled trans-continental railway system known as the Mexican Traqueros.  The rich history of Mexican Traqueros would be memorialized with a beautiful bronze sculpture, to be placed prominently in Venice, in the middle of the Windward traffic circle, footsteps from Venice Beach, honoring this culture that has been too often forgotten and marginalized. They came after Congress passed the first of many laws targeting immigrants: the Chinese Exclusion Act.  Hard-working Mexican migrants and Mexican Americans who lived in the area labored alongside the teams of Chinese immigrants and Black Americans who were the track layers, called "Traqueros" in Spanish. These "traqueros" moved with the work along the tracks.  

The early traqueros were diverse in every sense of the word.  Not accepted by mainstream society, they were connected by a shared history of oppression and a single-minded purpose to unite a vast country by rail." 

The motion creating the Venice Mexican American Traqueros Monument passed unanimously, 15 to 0.  Again, thank you, Councilman Bonin. 

-Councilmember Gil Cedillo

Los Angeles City officials, attorneys and city council members aired their thoughts in response to Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdicts. “Justice has been served,” said Gil Cedillo, District 1 City Councilmember. “I am hopeful that this will demonstrate that no one is above the law. May George Floyd rest in peace, and others who were victims of police misconduct but where justice did not prevail. His murder was the catalyst that led to a broad national consensus that Black lives matter.” Cedillo stressed honesty, discipline, and transparency, saying, “Now is the time to continue building a strong movement for social justice as the living legacy of George Floyd.” Los Angeles Downtown News, May 1, 2021, By Jakaria Ross, LA Downtown News Staff Writer

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana en el Distrito 1, bajó la demanda en nuestros sitios de vacunación. Es importante que te vacunes. Es vital para la salud y bienestar de nuestros niños, jóvenes, personas mayores, amigos y familiares. Con nuestra comunidad a salvo del COVID-19, podemos avanzar hacia una recuperación completa. Ten en mente que solo vacunándote, si no lo haz hecho, podremos recuperarnos más rápido.

También esta semana durante una conferencia de prensa junto con la Coalición de Derechos Plenos para los Inmigrantes, di mi apoyo incondicional al Plan de Reforma Migratoria 2021 del Presidente Biden. La Coalición y yo exigimos un camino hacia la ciudadanía para 11 millones de indocumentados que viven en los Estados Unidos para proteger a nuestras familias y fortalecer nuestra economía.

Este mes celebramos el Mes de la Herencia Asiática del Pacífico Estadounidense (APAHM por sus siglas en inglés). Estás cordialmente invitado a nuestras celebraciones para conmemorar la historia y la cultura de los estadounidenses de origen asiático, que por cierto, conforman una parte importante del Distrito 1. El tema de este año es Unidad, Empoderar, Edificar, Solidaridad, Arraigo y Comunidad. Más información del calendario de eventos aquí.

Por otra parte, comparto mis condolencias por la muerte del obispo Jon Bruno de la Diócesis Episcopal de Los Ángeles. Sirvió a nuestra comunidad durante muchos años en la Catedral Episcopal y antes en la Iglesia de San Atanasio frente al lago Echo Park. Descanse en paz un gran pastor y amigo incomparable.

Atentamente,

A nombre de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles, los invito a celebrar el Mes de la Herencia Asiática del Pacífico Estadounidense (APAHM). Como orgulloso representante de miles de estadounidenses de origen asiático, este mes tiene un significado especial para mí y para muchos de nosotros. Es la celebración que preserva la historia asiático-estadounidense destacando su cultura y comunidad. Esperamos que el calendario de actividades refleje el tema de este año: Unir, Empoderar, Levantar, Solidaridad, Arraigo y Comunidad.

La ceremonia oficial de apertura del APAHM con el alcalde Garcetti, y los concejales Lee y Raman es el jueves 6 de mayo a las 4 pm. Se entregarán reconocimientos a líderes de la AAPI, incluidos aquellos que han luchado en contra del odio racial. Puedes confirmar tu asistencia aquí.

Para consultar horarios de eventos, visita aquí.

Muchas gracias a la Comisionada de la Junta de Obras Públicas Jessica M. Caloza, por su trabajo y apoyo para llevar a cabo la celebración de APAHM.

Lamento profundamente la muerte del Obispo Jon Bruno de la Diócesis Episcopal en Los Ángeles, quien falleció el pasado viernes 23 de abril. Yo, como Rough Rider de Roosevelt High School, y Obispo Bruno, como un Bulldog de Garfield High School, compartimos un profundo compromiso para ayudar a las personas sin hogar. Bajo su liderazgo y con mi apoyo, abrimos la Iglesia Episcopal de Todos los Santos en el Distrito 1 como un programa de refugio de invierno que se convirtió en un centro de servicios y programas adicionales. Los Ángeles necesita más personas religiosas como él, que sientan que dar un techo al prójimo, sea como recibir un regalo de Dios. Mis más sinceras y sentidas condolencias a su familia. Descanse en paz Reverendo Jon Bruno.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Si hay una lección que aprender de la pandemia y de los disturbios del verano pasado, es abordar y transformar de manera activa el daño que resulta de las desigualdades raciales producidas por políticas, prácticas y programas pasados, presentes y futuros.

Antes de la pandemia y los disturbios, el ex presidente del Concilio, Herb Wesson y yo presentamos una moción para crear una Comisión de Derechos Civiles y Humanos de la Ciudad dirigida por un director ejecutivo. El verano pasado, a medida que aumentaron los mítines y manifestaciones, las discusiones sobre el Presupuesto del Alcalde también se intensificaron. Fue entonces cuando escuchamos por primera vez al alcalde referirse al Departamento de Derechos Civiles y Humanos de la Ciudad.

Esta semana, el Concilio finalmente aprobó la ordenanza que crea el primer Departamento de Derechos Civiles y Humanos y Equidad de la Ciudad dirigido por Capri Maddox. El departamento ya tiene un menú completo que incluye una revisión de los programas de la Ciudad al tiempo que subraya la equidad en todas las políticas, prácticas y programas de la Ciudad.

Equipo Cedillo ayuda a nuestros vecinos sin vivienda con estacionamiento seguro

El Programa de Estacionamiento Seguro en Westlake ofrece un lugar para que las personas que viven en sus vehículos pasen la noche, usen el baño y se conecten a los servicios integrales. Ubicado en el centro de la ciudad, este lugar recibe a vecinos que viven en vehículos de las áreas central y sur del distrito.

Creemos que es fundamental proporcionar refugio provisional y servicios de higiene para nuestros vecinos sin vivienda en el Distrito 1. Equipo Cedillo no solo crea, sino también es parte de la solución.

REFUGIO PROVISIONAL: UNA OPORTUNIDAD PARA SALIR DE LA CALLE

En 2019, abrimos Casa Azul que ofrece 41 camas para mujeres solteras y mujeres con niños en un ambiente hogareño. Casa Azul fue nombrada en homenaje a la vivienda (y ahora museo) de Frida Kahlo en la Ciudad de México. Otra opción para salir de la calle es nuestro refugio comunitario Echo Park con 27 camas. Recibimos a nuestros vecinos sin vivienda que necesitan un lugar para quedarse y empezar de nuevo.

En el 2018, el Distrito 1 lanzó el Programa de Eliminación de Residuos de RV. Las personas que viven en RV’s reciben servicio gratuito de descarga de desechos para su unidad en una instalación de la ciudad en el Distrito 1. Este programa garantiza que se eliminen sin peligro los desechos de estas viviendas móviles mientras ayudamos a mantener las condiciones de salud de ellos y de las áreas alrededor de ellos. Creemos que es fundamental proporcionar este tipo de servicios en el Distrito 1. Uno de los objetivos del Equipo Cedillo es brindar dignidad y salud a nuestros vecinos sin vivienda.

Dear Friend,

This week we are getting less demand at our vaccination sites in CD 1. It is important that you get vaccinated. It is crucial to the safety of all our children, youth, seniors, and families. With our community safe from COVID-19, we can be on our way to full recovery. But only if you join me in getting vaccinated.

I announced my strong support for President Biden’s Bicameral U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 this week at a press conference of the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition. We demanded a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented in the U.S. to strengthen our families and boost our economy.

This month we celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), please join us at the many events to commemorate the history and culture of Asian-Americans, who comprise a significant portion of my constituents. This year’s theme is Unite. Empower. Rise. - Celebrating Solidarity, Belonging, and Community. You can view the schedule of events here.

I also mourn the death of retired Bishop Jon Bruno of the Episcopal Diocese in Los Angeles. He served our community for many years at the Episcopal Cathedral Center and before that St. Athanasius Church across from Echo Park Lake in CD 1. May He Rest In Peace.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

On behalf of the City of Los Angeles, I invite you to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM).

The kick-off event is this Sunday, May 2nd at 10:00 am in El Pueblo, the birthplace of LA, for a Community Day of Service. You can sign up here.

Our opening ceremony with Mayor Garcetti, Councilmember Lee, and Councilmember Raman is next Thursday, May 6th at 4:00 p.m. We will recognize AAPI leaders, including those who have made significant contributions to anti-AAPI hate issues. You can RSVP here.

I am deeply saddened by the death of retired Bishop Jon Bruno of the Episcopal Diocese in Los Angeles who left this earth on Friday, April 23 to be amongst the angels in heaven. As a Roosevelt High School Rough Rider and Bishop Bruno a Garfield High School Bulldog we both found profound commitment to helping people experiencing homelessness. Under his leadership with my support, we opened up All Saints Episcopal Church in my district as a winter shelter program that evolved to provide additional services and programs. Los Angeles needs more partners like him from the clergy community to make ending homelessness a gift from God. I send my prayers and strength to his family and thank them for sharing Bishop Bruno with us.

  • The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order was updated to align with the change in CDC recommendations around masking for fully vaccinated people. Additional modifications to the Order also include:
  • Allowing indoor arcades and indoor playgrounds (bounce centers, ball pits, laser tag) to open at 25% maximum indoor capacity with safety modifications.
  • Bars, breweries, and wineries hours of operation limitations due to the pandemic have been removed
  • Employees who are fully vaccinated at food service facilities have the option of wearing a face shield in addition to a face mask when in close contact with customers; wearing a mask is still required. Employers must verify and document an employee's full vaccination status if a fully vaccinated employee chooses not to wear a face shield.
  • In-person behavioral health (mental health and substance use) therapeutic and educational support groups, such as Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous or Patient Education groups may return to typical participant levels with specified safety modifications.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM COUNCILMEMBER CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.

For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

If ever there was a lesson to be learned from the pandemic and last summer's unrest is to proactively address and transform the harm that has resulted from racial inequities produced by past, present, and future policies, practices, and programs.

Before the pandemic and the unrest, former Council President Herb Wesson and I introduced a motion creating the City's first-ever Civil and Human Rights Commission led by an Executive Director.  Last summer, as the rallies and demonstrations increased, the discussions around the Mayor's Budget heated up as well.  It was during this time that we heard for the first time, the Mayor refer to the City's Civil and Human Rights department.  

This week, Council finally approved the ordinance creating the City's first Civil, Human Rights, and Equity Department led by its fearless General Manager, Capri Maddox.  The department already has a full plate including a review of City programs while underscoring equity in all the city's present and future policies, practices, and programs.

The Safe Parking Program in Westlake offers a safe place for people living in their vehicles to sleep, use the restroom and get connected to wrap-around services. Located centrally in the City, we welcome our vehicle-dwelling neighbors from the Central and Southern areas of the District.

We believe that it is critical to provide interim shelter and hygiene services for our unhoused neighbors in Council District 1. Team Cedillo has been acting to not only create but to also be a part of the solution.

Another option to come indoors, is our Echo Park Community Shelter with 27 beds. We welcome our unhoused neighbors who need a place to stay.

In 2018, Council District 1 opened up an RV Waste Disposal Program, providing vouchers to our RV-dwelling neighbors. Each participant is able to receive free waste pumping services for their RV at a City facility in our district. This program ensures we help properly dispose of hazardous waste and maintains health conditions for our RV owners. We believe that it is critical to provide a spectrum of services for our unhoused neighbors in Council District 1. Team Cedillo aims to provide dignity and health to our unhoused neighbors.

The CAO is also soliciting feedback from residents who live or work in Los Angeles, community organizations, and other non-governmental entities to help inform the parameters of an unarmed crisis response program within the City. Please submit responses through this form no later than Sunday, May 9, 2021.

¡Se hizo justicia!

Espero que este veredicto demuestre que nadie está por encima de la ley. En paz descanse George Floyd, así como todas las víctimas de una inapropiada y fatal conducta policial. El asesinato de Floyd fue el catalizador que condujo al consenso nacional de que Black Lives Matter. Aun cuando se trate de una sola vida perdida, es inaceptable.

Ahora fortalezcamos el movimiento por la justicia social como legado de George Floyd. Este proceso requiere honestidad, disciplina y transparencia. Creo que todos estamos de acuerdo en que la lucha es demasiado importante y no debemos fracasar. Nuestras vidas penden de un hilo.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

El impacto destructivo de esta pandemia, incluyendo la pérdida de vidas humanas y la inestabilidad física y económica de nuestras comunidades, pasará a la historia como una de las peores tragedias que ha enfrentado el país. El COVID-19 nos puso a prueba individualmente, pero comprender lo que sucedió nos enseñará lo necesario para seguir adelante.

COVID-19 reveló la creciente desigualdad en nuestro sistema de atención médica, que las muertes ocurrieron más y afectaron más entre las comunidades de color. El aislamiento forzado reveló cómo la creciente brecha digital hace que el aprendizaje en línea sea más difícil para quienes más lo necesitan: los niños de nuestros vecindarios más pobres.

Es por eso que el Concilio aprobó mi resolución para apoyar AB 1425, que transferiría $ 25 millones de dólares anualmente a la Cuenta de Vivienda Pública de Banda Ancha para conectar a los residentes a Internet. El Concilio aprobará más resoluciones para mejorar las oportunidades de progreso para quienes dependen de la educación como un camino hacia una vida mejor.

El tema del Día de la Tierra 2021 fue Restaurar Nuestra Tierra, que se centra en procesos naturales, tecnologías ecológicas emergentes e innovaciones que restauren los ecosistemas. El tema rechaza la idea de que la mitigación o la adaptación son las únicas formas de abordar el cambio climático.

Depende de cada uno de nosotros Restaurar Nuestra Tierra, no solo porque nos preocupamos por el mundo, sino porque vivimos en él. Todos necesitamos un planeta saludable para apoyar nuestros trabajos, medios de vida, salud y supervivencia. Un planeta sano es la opción por necesidad.

La empresa fue fundada por Jamie Caro y su esposa, Arminda Caro. Jaime emigró de Puerto Rico a California después de servir en el Ejército de los Estados Unidos y Armida emigró de México. Originalmente trabajaban desde su casa mientras Jaime todavía trabajaba como químico, y Armida consultó a nuevos clientes que eran principalmente familiares y amigos.

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing with you more that we have done to help our unhoused neighbors in CD 1.

I also invite you to tune into our virtual Eastside Budget Listening Session this Sunday, April 25, 2021, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be a brief presentation on budget basics of the City’s 2021-22 budget, and there will be time allotted for input.  Constituents MUST RSVP at this link to get the link/dial-in information for the Zoom webinar.

Justice has been served.

I am hopeful that this will demonstrate that no one is above the law. May George Floyd Rest in Peace and others who were victims of police misconduct, but where justice did not prevail. His murder was the catalyst that led to a broad national consensus that Black Lives Matter. We all agree that even one life lost is unacceptable.

Now is the time to continue building a strong movement for social justice as the living legacy of George Floyd. To succeed, this process will require honesty, discipline, and transparency, but I believe we all agree that the fight is too important to fail. All our lives hang in the balance.
