New Playgrounds at Alvarado Terrace Park and MacArthur Park

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

I am so happy to announce that my FREE Latin Jazz and Music Festival is returning. The in-person event is at Sycamore Grove Park, 4702 N. Figueroa Street in Highland Park on Saturday, October 9th, and Sunday, October 10th 12:30-8 p.m. We have a great line-up with headliners Ozomatli and Little Willie G on Saturday and La Sonora Dinamita with Vilma Diaz and Joe Bataan on Sunday. Your health and safety are my priorities. All guests will be required to show proof of vaccination. So please bring a copy of your vax card. All California residents may request a digital vaccination record at MyVaccineRecord.cdph.ca.gov that you can download to your phone.

I was the only Councilmember voting to support the Governor’s Comeback Plan in Council. The plan passed the legislature and was signed by the governor to create up to 84,000 new housing units. The plan includes SB 8, SB 9, and SB 10.

We opened a new playground at Alvarado Terrace Park in Pico-Union and will open a new playground in MacArthur Park on Monday. I am happy to provide safe outdoor activities for my constituents and a place for our children to have fun, especially in a community that lacks sufficient open space and playground facilities.

Please get in touch with me if I can assist you at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

HOUSING UPDATE

Councilmember Cedillo Hails Housing Bill Signed by Governor Newsom

Photo Credit: Office of Governor Gavin Newsom

Councilmember Cedillo thanks Governor Gavin Newsom for signing his California Comeback Plan, including SB 8, SB 9, and SB 10. The plan will lead to over 84,000 new housing units and exits from homelessness, including this week’s announcement of $1.75 billion in affordable housing funding for the new California Housing Accelerator.

SB 8 extends the Housing Crisis Act of 2019 to jumpstart more housing production. Gov. Newsom Signs SB 8, Extending the Housing Crisis Act | Senator Nancy Skinner (ca.gov)

SB 9 gives homeowners additional tools to add critically needed new housing and help ease California’s housing shortage. Bill Text - SB-9 Housing development: approvals. (ca.gov)

SB 10 establishes a voluntary, streamlined process for cities to zone for multi-unit housing -- making it easier and faster to construct housing. Bill Text - SB-10 Planning and zoning: housing development: density. (ca.gov)

“We must now act and act affirmatively and build our toolbox so that we can take the actions necessary to build housing,” Cedillo said. “At the end of the day, the prospect of not disturbing or disrupting these communities, not challenging these communities who want to maintain the apartheid that exists in the city is simply an argument for the status quo.”

The Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education passed an additional $ 26 million to allocate an additional $ 26 million to the existing $ 190 million comprehensive modernization project on the Roosevelt High School campus.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo was among the alums who attended. “Of course, I was in the Chicano era and the Chicano movement, and that was our demand and our interest. We wanted dignity and respect. But above all, we wanted fairness, “said Councilmember Cedillo. “We wanted to have the same kind of resources, the same kind of commitments, the same kind of promises that every young man in the region had.”

Captain Stabile retired as the Commanding Area Officer at LAPD Hollenbeck Division and served in numerous assignments in his career with the Los Angeles Police Department. He was responsive, always spoke from the heart, and his frankness helped us know the severity of community crime and how we needed to work together to achieve safety. We wish him a healthy and enjoyable retirement.

Make Sure Your Furry Four-Legged Friends Are Part Of Your Family Emergency Plan

Photo Credit: LA Animal Services

September is National Emergency Preparedness Month, and LA Animal Services wants to make sure your furry four-legged friends are part of your family emergency plan. Here’s a checklist to create a family emergency preparedness plan.

Plan where you and your pet will stay in case you need to evacuate your home.  

Prepare an emergency kit. Put together a bag of emergency supplies for your pet, such as food and water for several days, treats, medications, toys, and blankets. Make sure that perishable items are replaced every few months.

Create copies of important documents for your animal such as vaccination records, microchip information, photos of your pet, your contact information, friends/relatives contact information, notes on feeding, medication, and behavior. Keep a copy off-site with a friend or family member in digital storage, and tape a copy to a portable kennel.

Make sure you have the proper equipment for pets to ride in the car (carriers, harnesses, pet seat belts, etc.).

Have your entire family, including your furry family members, practice evacuating so everyone knows what to take, where to find the pets, and where to meet.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

Please vote by Tuesday, September 14th in the Special Election. The results will impact our state, and maintaining protection from the devastating effect of COVID-19 on all of us is at stake.

For the next several days, I am partnering with Councilmember Kevin de León to illuminate City Hall with the colors of Mexico and Central American nations to celebrate the bicentennial of their Independence. Watch for the illumination to begin on Monday, September 13th at dusk.

This week I partnered with our mobile laundry provider, Laundry Truck LA, to pass out backpacks at some of our service locations. Each backpack includes supplies people experiencing homelessness have asked to receive, and we are assembling more backpacks to help meet the needs in our district.

Please get in touch with me if I can assist you at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

  • Programa de asistencia de emergencia para rentas abre parte 2

  • Censo incompleto en distritos del Este de Los Ángeles

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

El Concilio aprobó la moción de financiar a Homeboy Industries para lanzar un Programa de Comidas para Personas Mayores en el Distrito 1; Homeboy podrá distribuir 25,000 comidas a adultos mayores a la semana.

Esta semana se abrió la Parte 2 del Programa de Asistencia de Emergencia para Rentas. Si eres un inquilino, aprovecha este apoyo vital.

Me preocupa la respuesta débil al Censo 2020, que refleja la disminución de 6,022 en la población del Distrito 1. Esto resulta increíble tomando en cuenta el hacinamiento en algunas partes del distrito. Creo que la campaña del ex presidente para que el estatus migratorio fuera parte de la encuesta hizo que los habitantes temieran ser deportados si participaban en el Censo.

Por otra parte, tu participación en las audiencias de redistribución de distritos es crucial para diseñar el Distrito 1, particularmente porque tenemos que ganar terreno.

El Concilio aprobó una moción presupuestaria vital muy significativa para mí. Como quedó escrito en la agenda, el Concilio aprobó la recomendación que ordena al Director Administrativo que busque fondos de $2 millones para un proyecto de Homeboy Industries para un programa de comidas para personas mayores en el Distrito 1. Para mí, significa mucho más. Es un proyecto que construye un puente entre los jóvenes de Homeboy Industries y nuestros adultos mayores en torno a un elemento que salva vidas: la comida.

Espero que más proyectos como este se realicen en nuestras diferentes comunidades y proporcionen las mejores comidas para personas mayores en la ciudad.

Censo informa que la población está disminuyendo en el este de L.A.

Calle Figueroa en Highland Park, en donde el Censo de EE. UU. Encontró una disminución del 7% en la población, lo que alimentó la preocupación de un conteo insuficiente. | Foto: Myung J. Chun, Los Angeles Times

El Concejal Cedillo cree que es posible que hayamos sufrimos una gran falta de conteo en el Distrito 1 debido a varios factores. El estado migratorio de un habitante tuvo un impacto porque los inmigrantes temían por una deportación. La campaña de la administración Trump para cuestionar sobre el estado migratorio redujo la participación. Además, mi distrito tiene una de las concentraciones más altas de inmigrantes, con viviendas superpobladas llenas de varias generaciones de miembros de la familia. Muchos de estos residentes son trabajadores esenciales y trabajadores de la industria de servicios que a menudo están fuera de su casa. Nos enfrentamos a desafíos como estos que pueden evitar una precisión del 100% en el conteo.

Cedillo dijo que “la débil respuesta al censo se debió al impulso del ex presidente para que el estatus migratorio fuera parte de la encuesta y al temor a la deportación entre algunos de sus habitantes”.

Censo informa que la población está disminuyendo en el Este de Los Ángeles, alimentando el temor de un recuento insuficiente, por David Zahniser, Los Angeles Times, 30 de agosto de 2021.

Mujeres de la Tierra salieron a la calle para convencer a personas que no han sido vacunadas

Nanette Machado, trabajadora de Mujeres de la Tierra, logró convencer a las hermanas Vilma y Mónica Santiago para que se vacunaran.

Con el aumento de las infecciones por Covid-19, las mujeres visitan comunidades difíciles y peligrosas para aclarar dudas sobre las vacunas.

"A medida que seguimos viendo un aumento de los casos de coronavirus, en mi distrito [en una semana de 699 a 1070 y de dos muertes a seis], es más importante que nunca que las personas se vacunen, se hagan pruebas con regularidad, usen mascarilla que cubra la nariz cada vez que están fuera de su casa. Lávete las manos con frecuencia y respeta el distanciamiento social”, dijo el Concejal Cedillo.

Durante los últimos meses, el Equipo Cedillo ha trabajado con los residentes que viven alrededor de Debs Park y Elysian Park junto con LAFD, LAPD y el Departamento de Parques y Recreación para ayudar a educar al público y prevenir incendios. La Zona de Alto Riesgo de Incendio (o "Zone") se estableció por primera vez en la Ciudad de Los Ángeles en 1999 y reemplazó al "Distrito de Incendios" y la "Zona de Disminución" más antiguos. La "Zone" se determinó cuidadosamente de acuerdo con la Ley del Estado de California. El área de gravedad de alto riesgo de incendios comprende la mayoría de las regiones montañosas de la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Los primeros 20 letreros se instalaron en las ubicaciones más críticas, mientras que se identifican más áreas para instalar letreros.

Cedillo Weekly:

  • Homeboy Industries Funding Recommended to Launch Senior Meal Program in CD 1

  • Emergency Renter's Assistance Program Part 2 Opens

  • Census Undercount in Eastside Districts

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week Council approved the recommendation providing funding for Homeboy Industries to launch a Senior Meal Program in CD 1. Homeboy will distribute 25,000 meals weekly to seniors.

The Emergency Renter's Assistance Program Part 2 opened this week. If you are a renter, please take advantage of this vital support.

I am upset that there was a weak response to the census, with CD 1 losing 6,022 in population. The loss of people is unbelievable given the overcrowding in parts of the district. The reason was the former president's push to make immigration status a part of the survey and deportation fears among some of my constituents.

Your participation in redistricting hearings is crucial for designing CD 1, particularly because we will be gaining territory.  Please call 213-263-5765 for more information or click here.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council passed a vital budget motion that is near and dear to my heart.  As written on the council agenda, the Council effectively approved the recommendation directing the Chief Administrative Officer to find potential budget sources for a $2 million Homeboy Industries project for a Senior Meal Program in Council District 1.  To me, the project is symbolic of something more.  It is a project that builds a bridge between the youth at Homeboy Industries and our seniors around a life-changing and life-saving item - food.  A compassionate and quality-of-life project is transpiring at a time of humankind's worst pandemic in modern history. 

I look forward to more projects partnering our different communities, our seniors and youth, and providing the best senior meals in the city.

Census Reports Declining Population On L.A.'s Eastside, Fueling Undercount Fears

Councilmember Cedillo believes it is possible that we also naturally suffered a vast undercount in the First District due to several factors. A resident's immigration status had a significant impact because immigrants feared deportation. The Trump administration's push for asking about immigration status put a chill on responses. Furthermore, my district has one of the highest concentrations of immigrants, with overcrowded housing filled with several generations of family members. Many of these residents are essential workers and service industry workers who are often out of their residence. We face challenges such as these that may quickly and organically prevent 100% accuracy in counting.

Mujeres de la Tierra Take to The Streets to Convince People Who Have Not Been Vaccinated

Nanette Machado, a Mujeres de la Tierra worker, managed to convince sisters Vilma and Monica Santiago to be immunized.

With the increase in covid infections, women visit difficult and dangerous communities to clarify doubts about vaccines.

"As we continue to see COVID-19 cases rise, in my district [in a week from 699 to 1070 and from two deaths to six], it's more important than ever that people get vaccinated, get tested regularly, wear a mask that covers their nose whenever they're out of their house. Wash your hands frequently and respect social distancing," said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

Over the past several months, Team Cedillo has been working with residents living around Debs Park and Elysian Park together with LAFD, LAPD, and Recreation and Parks to help educate the public and prevent fires in these areas. The Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (or "Zone") was first established in the City of Los Angeles in 1999 and replaced the older "Mountain Fire District" and "Buffer Zone." The "Zone" was carefully determined according to California State Law. The Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone comprises most of the hilly and mountainous regions of the City of Los Angeles. The first 20 signs were installed with ten at each park at the most critical locations, while more areas get identified for signs to be installed.

Amigos y amigas:

Seguimos registrando un aumento de los casos de COVID-19 en el Distrito 1. En la semana reciente los casos aumentaron de 699 a 1,070 y el número de decesos de dos a seis. Es más importante que nunca que te vacunes, te hagas la prueba con regularidad, uses mascarilla que te cubra la nariz cada vez que estés fuera de su casa, te laves las manos con frecuencia y mantengas tu sana distancia.

Si necesitas ayuda para ubicar un lugar de vacunación cerca de tu domicilio o un viaje gratis para vacunarte, visita LAC | DPH | Vacuna COVID-19: cómo vacunarse (lacounty.gov), también puedes contactarme en [email protected] o llamado al (213) 473-7001.

Por otra parte, me complace informarles que el Ayuntamiento aprobó la designación de Mechicano Arts Center y Centro de Arte Público como Monumentos Histórico-Culturales. Muchos de mis amigos desarrollaron su arte en estos sitios, incluidos Judithe Hernández, Richard Duardo, Bárbara Carrasco, Frank Romero y George Yepes.

Aún hay más: Prepárense para dos nuevos proyectos de viviendas 100% asequibles. Berendo Sage tendrá 42 unidades y Mariposa Lily tendrá 41. Estoy comprometido a crear más viviendas asequibles en el Distrito 1, además de las 2,423 construidas desde que estoy en el cargo.

Por último, me complació mucho asociarme con Pico-Union Project para regalar 250 carritos para el mandado. Esta fue una idea de Terri Boggan, una voluntaria del Pico-Union Project que se dio cuenta de que los vecinos necesitaban estos carritos para poder llevar muchos más productos a casa.

Por favor cuídate.

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó una moción que presenté pidiendo al personal de la Ciudad que explorara la posible adquisición de las instalaciones de la antigua Corte del Condado de Los Ángeles ubicadas en el 1150 N. San Fernando Road, con el objetivo de convertirlas en viviendas asequibles y/o de apoyo para personas sin hogar. Durante muchos años, el Condado de L.A. administró el edificio, pero al cerrar la corte ha estado vacío. Mi oficina inició pláticas con su propietario, el Consejo Judicial del Estado. La crisis de vivienda de la Ciudad es severa y debemos ser creativos para solucionarla. Aquí está la Moción del Concilio.

Fue un viernes maravilloso en Pico-Union Project: 250 familias recibieron un carrito para el mandado cargado con frutas y verduras frescas gratis para transportar más fácilmente a sus hogares los productos regalados. Esta idea fue de la voluntaria Terri Boggan, que se encarga de empacar bolsas de frutas y verduras cada semana y se dio cuenta de que los vecinos podrían llevarse a casa muchos más productos si tuvieran estos carritos. El Concejal Cedillo junto con el Proyecto Unión Pico hizo realidad la idea de Terri.

Dear Friend,

This week we continue to see COVID-19 cases rise in CD 1. In the last week cases rose from 699 to 10,070 and deaths from two to six. It is now more important than ever that you get vaccinated, get tested regularly, wear a mask covering your nose whenever you are out of your home, wash your hands frequently , and social distance. If you need help locating a vaccination site close to you or a free ride to a vaccination site, please contact me at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

The City Council voted to designate Mechicano Arts Center and Centro de Arte Publico as Historic-Cultural Monuments.  Many of my friends practiced their art at these sites including  Judithe Hernández, Richard Duardo, Barbara Carrasco, Frank Romero, and George Yepes.

We have two new 100% affordable housing projects under construction. Berendo Sage will have 42 brand-new units, and Mariposa Lily  41 units. I am committed to bringing more affordable housing to CD 1 above and beyond the 2,423 that have been built since I’ve been in office.

At lastly, I was so pleased to partner with the Pico Union Project to give away 250 grocery carts. The giveaway was the brainchild of Terri Boggan, a Pico Union Project volunteer who realized that neighbors could take home much more produce if they had carts.

Be safe.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Pursuing Affordable Housing Opportunities in Northeast Los Angeles

Photo Credit: City News Service

This week, the City Council approved a motion that I sponsored asking city staff to explore the potential acquisition of the former courthouse facility located at 1150 N. San Fernando Road and to study the feasibility of converting it into affordable and/or supportive housing serving formerly homeless individuals.  For many years, the County of Los Angeles operated the building as a courthouse, but it has since stood vacant.  My office initiated discussions with the State Judicial Council which owns the property.  The City’s housing crisis is severe, and we need to think creatively.  Here is the Council Motion.

We had a very successful Friday at the Pico Union Project. Two hundred constituents received a free shopping cart loaded with free fresh fruit and vegetables that help them transport their fresh produce to their homes. This year's gift was the brainchild of longtime volunteer Terri Boggan who packs produce bags every week. She realized that neighbors could take home much more produce if they had carts. Councilmember Cedillo partnered with the Pico Union Project to make Terri’s idea a reality.

Amigos y Amigas:

Esta semana voté por exigir que todos los empleados de la Ciudad usen mascarilla. Quise asegurarme de que el público sepa que aquellos que están haciendo pruebas, vacunando y atendiéndolos, son los primeros en mantenerse a salvo cuando prestan atención y ayuda. También apoye la decisión del condado de Los Ángeles de exigir mascarillas en todos los eventos masivos.

Conoce y aprovecha los servicios de centros de estudios y atención contra el cáncer. El Centro “Ruby Cedillo”, que honra el nombre de mi difunta esposa, se encuentra en Arroyo Vista Family Health Center en Highland Park. Las mamografías y los exámenes de los senos gratuitos están disponibles para quienes califiquen.

También me da gusto informarles que la Ciudad de Los Ángeles está ofreciendo $25 millones en fondos de su Programa de Recuperación de Restaurantes y Pequeñas Empresas y $12 millones en un Programa de Asistencia de Alquiler para Pequeñas Empresas. Estos fondos ayudarán a los restaurantes y otras industrias vulnerables que necesitan asistencia para recuperarse de la recesión económica.

Por otra parte, sé que entre nosotros hay muchos amigos de los perros en el Distrito 1. Este 26 de agosto, celebraremos juntos el Día Internacional del Perro. Es un día para dar un poco más de amor y cuidado extra a nuestros amigos peludos.

Mientras tanto, ¡ponte a salvo!

Ayuntamiento vota para exigir la vacuna COVID-19 a todos los empleados de la Ciudad

Los empleados de la ciudad de Los Ángeles deberán estar completamente vacunados contra el COVID-19 a principios de octubre, a menos que se obtengan una exención por razones médicas o religiosas, según una nueva ordenanza aprobada el miércoles por el Concilio.

Esta ordenanza permitirá que algunas personas con enfermedades médicas o creencias religiosas reales que les impiden recibir las vacunas, busquen una exención, pero tendrán que someterse a pruebas periódicas. No se permitirá a los empleados municipales optar por la prueba para evitar vacunarse por otras razones. El objetivo de la Ciudad con esta ordenanza es tener una fuerza laboral vacunada.

Aquí es donde puedes vacunarse

La vacuna sigue siendo gratuita y está disponible para cualquier persona de 12 años o más sin seguro o sin importar su estado migratorio.

Puestos de Vacunación

Con más de 800 puestos de vacunación en todo el condado de Los Ángeles, obtener la vacuna nunca ha sido tan fácil. Puedes visitar los puestos de drive-thru (sin bajar de tu auto), caminando en clínicas locales y en puestos de vacunación cercano de ti. También puedes vacunarte durante tu viaje en las estaciones LA Metro. El centro de llamadas del condado de Los Ángeles también puede ayudarte a encontrar lugares de vacunación en tu área y ayudarte para hacer una cita. Puedes llamar al (833) 540-0473 entre las 8 am y las 8:30 pm todos los días. Trae un comprobante de edad al puestos o clínica de vacunación. Para los jóvenes de 12 y 17 años, tienen que llenar este formulario.

PRUEBAS GRATIS DE COVID-19

Muchos puestos de vacunación también ofrecen pruebas gratis de COVID-19. Es muy recomendable que te hagas la prueba si tienes síntomas de COVID-19, incluso si estás completamente vacunado, y has estado en contacto cercano con alguien que haya dado positivo en la prueba de COVID-19. Puedes encontrar una lista de sitios de prueba en Coronavirus.LACity.org/Testing.

VACUNAS A DOMICILIO Y TRANSPORTE GRATIS PARA VACUNARTE

Si están impedido de salir de tu hogar, puedes solicitar una vacuna a domicilio. También puedes solicitar un viaje gratis a través de Uber o Lyft. Para más información sobre las vacunas a domicilio y los viajes gratuitos, comunícate con el Centro de llamadas del condado de Los Ángeles al (833) 540-0473 o completa este formulario en línea.

LEGISLANDO PARA TI

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó uno de los primeros mandatos de vacunación COVID-19 para los empleados de la Ciudad.

Estamos en uno de los momentos más cruciales en la historia del país, principalmente lidiando con esta devastadora y peligrosa pandemia.

A pesar de todos los debates entre la decisión personal y la extralimitación del gobierno, ahora es el momento más que nunca en que debemos unimos contra un enemigo común: El virus del COVID-19.

Luchar contra el virus significa eliminarlo y evitar que cobre más vidas.

La ciencia ha demostrado que las vacunas nos protegen del virus y evitan que se mute.

Las vacunas nos permite producir una inmunidad colectiva y, al igual que otras infecciones mortales como la poliomielitis, la viruela y la influenza, recibir una dosis impedirá que el coronavirus cause mas muertes.

La vacuna obligatoria para nuestros empleados de la Ciudad, nuestros héroes durante nuestra lucha contra la pandemia es nuestra forma de unirnos contra un enemigo común y, al hacerlo, nos acercamos a otra victoria contra las pandemias del mundo.

-Concejal Gil Cedillo

Concilio de Los Ángeles aprueba mandato de vacunación para trabajadores de la Ciudad | MyNewsLA.com

Declaraciones de Cedillo en el debate del Concilio para exigir vacuna a los empleados de la Ciudad

"Estamos aquí para ser servidores públicos y atender a la comunidad. Hemos hecho un trabajo extraordinario, aunque no tenemos un departamento de salud. No tenemos una enfermera ni un médico en la nómina, pero hemos vacunado a más personas que nadie (y) realizamos pruebas a más personas que nadie. Sin embargo, debemos asegurarnos de que el público sepa que quienes están realizando pruebas, vacunando y atendiendo, estarán seguros cuando vengan a verlos. Como servidores públicos, nuestro deber es primero con el público. Es nuestra responsabilidad vacunarnos para mantener seguras a nuestras comunidades, familias y a nuestros seres queridos".

La nominación de Monumento Histórico-Cultural para Mechicano Art Center, ubicado en 5337-5341 North Figueroa Street y 110 North Avenue 54 y el Centro de Arte Público, ubicado en 5605-5607 North Figueroa Street, está programada para ser presentada ante el Ayuntamiento este Martes 24 de agosto.

Los dos edificios, fueron los inmuebles más influyentes del condado de Los Ángeles durante el movimiento artístico latino en las décadas de 1960 y 1970. Desempeñaron un papel fundamental al permitir que los artistas latinos se expresaran y exhibieran su trabajo creativo en un ambiente seguro y agradable. Tenemos que preservar estos centros históricos para garantizar que las historias y el trabajo de estos artistas permanezcan vivos para las futuras generaciones de angelinos. Algunos artistas exponentes en Mechicano Art Center y / o Centro de Arte Público incluyen a Richard Duardo, Carlos Almaraz, Leo Limón, Harry Gamboa, John Valadez y Roberto Chávez.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week I voted to require all City employees to wear a mask. We must make sure that the public knows that those who are testing, vaccinating, and responding, that your first responders are going to be safe when they come to your aid. I also support the decision by LA County to require masks at all mega-events.

Please take advantage of the Ruby Cedillo Breast Cancer and Imaging Center. The Center, named after my late wife, Ruby, is at the Arroyo Vista Family Health Center in Highland Park. Free mammograms and Breast Exams are available for those who qualify.

I am also happy to share that the City offers $25M in grants from their Restaurant and Small Business Recovery Program and $12M in a Small Business Rental Assistance Program. The funds will help restaurants and other vulnerable industries needing assistance in recovering from the economic downturn.

In closing, I know we have many dog lovers in CD 1. I will join you in celebrating International Dog Day on August 26. It is a day to shower some extra love and care for our furry friends.

Be Safe!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

City Council Votes to Require COVID-19 Vaccine For City Employees!

Los Angeles city employees will have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by early October, unless they are granted an exemption for medical or religious reasons, under a new ordinance approved Wednesday by the City Council.

The law would permit people with medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs that prevent them from getting the shots to seek an exemption, requiring regular testing for such employees. However, it would not allow municipal employees to opt for testing if they wish to avoid getting vaccinated for other reasons. The proposal states that the City's goal is to have a vaccinated workforce.

Here is Where You Can Get Vaccinated

The vaccine remains free and available to anyone age 12 and older without insurance or immigration status proof.

VACCINATION SITES

With more than 800 vaccination sites across Los Angeles County, getting the vaccine has never been easier. You can visit drive-thru, walk-up, and pop-up sites near you — or get vaccinated during your commute at LA Metro transit stations. Los Angeles County's Call Center can also help you find vaccination sites in your area and help you register ahead of your visit. You can call (833) 540-0473 between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. daily. Remember to bring proof of age to the site and if you are between 12 and 17 years oldbring this form.

FREE COVID-19 TESTING

Many vaccination sites are also offering free COVID-19 testing. We highly recommend that you get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms — even if you are fully vaccinated — and have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. You can find a list of testing sites at Coronavirus.LACity.org/Testing.

IN-HOME VACCINATIONS & FREE RIDES

If you are homebound, you can request an in-home vaccination. You can also request a free ride through Uber or Lyft. For more information about in-home vaccinations and free rides, contact Los Angeles County's Call Center at (833) 540-0473 or fill out an online form.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, Council passed one of the first-ever COVID-19 vaccination mandates for City employees.  We are in one of the most pivotal times in our nation's history, mainly dealing with the most devastating and dangerous pandemic the world has ever seen.  Notwithstanding all the debates about personal choice and government overreach, now is the time more than ever that we all unite and not be divided against one common enemy, the COVID 19 virus.  To unite against the virus is to remove it from existence and stop it from claiming more lives.  Science has shown that vaccinations protect us from the virus and prevent the virus from mutating.  Increased vaccinations allow us to achieve herd immunity and, much like previous deadly infections, have stopped polio, smallpox, and influenza from causing deaths.  Mandated vaccinations for our valued City employees who themselves have emerged as heroes during our fight against the pandemic is our way of uniting against one common enemy and, in doing so, assures us of another victory against the pandemics of the world.

Councilmember Cedillo's Remarks During Council Debate To Require City Employees To Be Vaccinated

"We are here to be servant leaders and serve the public. We have done an extraordinary job even though we do not have a health department. We do not have a nurse or doctor on the payroll. Yet, we vaccinated more people than anybody (and) we tested more people than anybody. Yet we must make sure that the public knows that those who are testing, vaccinating, and responding, that your first responders are going to be safe when they come to see you. As public servants and first responders, our duty is first to the public. It is our responsibility to get vaccinated to keep our communities, families, and loved ones safe."

I am ecstatic that 1,550,985 million undocumented immigrants obtained their driver's licenses between January 1, 2015, and May 2021. I ran for office for the opportunity to serve and advocate for vulnerable communities and delivered for them with the passage of AB 60, granting undocumented immigrants the right to apply for a driver's license. I tried nine times since 1998 to get bills passed in the California State Legislature that would allow undocumented.

These are two of Los Angeles County’s most influential buildings during the Latino arts movement in the 1960s and 1970s. They played a pivotal role in allowing Latino artists to express themselves and showcase their creative work in a welcoming environment. There is a dire need to preserve these historic centers to ensure the stories and work of these artists stay alive for future generations of Angelenos. Some artists exhibited at Mechicano Art Center and/or Centro de Arte Publico include Richard Duardo, Carlos Almaraz, Leo Limon, Harry Gamboa, John Valadez, and Roberto Chavez.

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.

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana tuvimos el peor aumento de nuevas infecciones desde febrero, con cerca de 700 nuevos casos de Covid-19. Por favor, sigue usando mascarilla, mantén la sana distancia, lávate las manos con regularidad, vacúnate si aun no lo haz hecho y realízate una prueba de coronavirus.

Esta semana estaré votando a favor de las nominaciones de Monumento Histórico-Cultural del Centro de Arte Mechicano y el Centro de Arte Público ante el Comité de Planificación y Uso de la Tierra (PLUM). Estos son dos de los edificios que fueron más influyentes durante el movimiento artístico latino en las décadas de 1960 y 1970 y jugaron un papel fundamental al permitir que los artistas latinos se expresaran y exhibieran su trabajo creativo en un ambiente seguros.

Por otra parte, los invito a participar en el Programa para Compradores de Casa por Primera Vez, un excelente programa ofrecido por la Ciudad que ayuda a los compradores de vivienda por primera vez de ingresos a comprar sus viviendas en Los Ángeles.

Y mientras la pandemia de Covid-19 continúa, la Ciudad ha extendido “L.A. Al Fresco” hasta fines del 2021. Este programa para restaurantes con servicio al aire libre, ofrece espacios saludables que reciben y atienden a los clientes en áreas de comedor extendidas a estacionamiento, calles bloqueadas y áreas privadas adyacentes vacías.

Director de respuesta a crisis del alcalde afirma que la vacuna COVID-19 "literalmente me salvó la vida"

Joe Avalos, a reserve LAPD officer and director of Mayor Eric Garcetti's Crisis Response Team.

Foto: Joe Avalos

Joe Avalos, oficial de reserva de LAPD y director del Equipo de Respuesta a Crisis del Alcalde Eric Garcetti, admite que la vacuna de Pfizer le salvó la vida.  

Cuando Joe Avalos sintió una tos seca hace un par de semanas, pensó que podrían ser sus alergias o el polvo de una nueva construcción en su vecindario. El oficial de reserva del Departamento de Policía de Los Ángeles y director del Equipo de Respuesta a Crisis del Alcalde Eric Garcetti dijo que no creía que fuera el COVID-19. Ya se había vacunado con la dosis Pfizer en diciembre, y siempre mantuvo el distanciamiento social y el uso de su mascarilla.

"Yo estaba incrédulo, no hay manera", dijo Avalos. Pero estaba equivocado. Tenía COVID-19, de la variante Delta altamente contagiosa, dijo. Y casi lo mata. Lo que lo salvó, dijeron sus médicos, fue el hecho de que estaba vacunado, razón por la cual ahora está invitando a todos, incluidos sus compañeros oficiales de LAPD, a "pensar dos veces" antes de rechazar un pinchazo.

Por Kevin Rector, Los Ángeles Times, 10 de agosto de 2021.

COVID-19 esta semana en el Distrito 1

Se registraron casi 700 casos de Covid-19 la semana pasada, el peor aumento semanal de nuevas infecciones desde el 12 de febrero. Esto es casi el doble de la semana anterior. No hubo fallecimientos esta semana, y en la anterior hubo tres. Por favor cuídate y cuida a tu familia.

693 nuevos casos para un total de 54,878

3 muertos para mantener un total de 1,357

VACUNA DEL CORONAVIRUS

Hay 800 puestos de vacunación en el Condado de Los Ángeles

Nunca ha sido tan fácil obtener una vacuna contra el coronavirus. Ahora puedes vacunarte incluso en tu auto o a pie en cualquier clínica sin cita, sin seguro médico y sin importar tu estatus migratorio. Hasta puedes vacunarte durante tu rutina diaria porque en las estaciones del L.A. Metro, hay puestos de vacunación en todo el condado. Para más información, consulta este enlace.

Los adultos mayores no vacunados o aquellos que sufren condiciones de salud inestable, tienen un riesgo mayor de contraer COVID-19. Vacunarse reduce el riesgo de hospitalización y que sus enfermedades se agraven. Encuentra un puesto de vacunación cercano a tu domicilio en VaccinateLACounty.com¿Necesitas ayuda?

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO

El Concilió aprobó las acciones del Concejal Kevin De León hacia una meta de la ciudad de 25,000 unidades de vivienda asequible y mi enmienda para distribuirlas equitativamente. Es esencial que los residentes que buscan viviendas asequibles no sean limitados a unos pocos distritos del Concilio; el Distrito 1 representa uno de los mayores números de unidades de vivienda asequibles permitidas, pero esto debe ser en todos los distritos. Es hora de que hagamos que todos nuestros vecindarios se conviertan en comunidades diversas en todas las categorías posibles. La diversidad refleja la equidad. Esa es la Ciudad de Los Ángeles por la que todos luchamos.

Concejal Gil Cedillo, productor ejecutivo de “ARENA: A House Music-al”

ARENA es una obra musical basada en el ritmo house de la década de 1990 y enmarcada en el legendario club nocturno ARENA de Hollywood. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de amigos durante una época turbulenta en la que los contagios por VIH / SIDA aumentaron un 130% entre los latinos LGBTQ. ARENA es la historia de Lucio Torrez, un joven chicano de 21 años con una voz excepcional y director del ministerio de música en la Iglesia Pentecostal de East L.A., donde su padre es el pastor. Lucio tiene una relación íntima con el guitarrista de la iglesia y sus padres se enteran. Exigen que asista a Exist in Truth (EXIT), un grupo de conversión gay, para mantener su ministerio y seguir siendo parte de su familia o perderlo todo. Lucio asiste a EXIT y se da cuenta de que su verdad es lo más importante.

ARENA presenta más de 15 composiciones musicales originales y una gran coreografía, en una producción de TNH. El equipo creativo que trajo a Boyle Heights  obras como In The Heights, Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, Disney's Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical y Sister Act, ahora te presenta esta historia conmovedora y de mucha energía que te tocará el corazón, te pondrá de pie y saldrás cantando del teatro.

Sinopsis de ARENA:

Este musical inicia en la víspera de Año Nuevo de 2015 a 2016, la última noche en que ARENA y Circus Disco estuvieron abiertos. El personaje principal Lucio Torrez nos lleva a la década de 1990 mientras seguimos su "viaje de salir del closet" y reacciones de amistades, lecciones y momentos que impactaron su vida y a la de muchos. Basada en el género House Music de la época y ambientada en Los Ángeles, esta historia exuberante y apasionada muestra cómo una comunidad lidió con los problemas de la vida, el amor, la identidad, la orientación y el racismo y cómo un espacio increíble, fantástico y valiente, unió a las personas para celebrar sus diferencias, les dio el coraje para perseguir sus sueños y vivir en su ser más auténtico a través de la música.

DESCRIPCIÓN DE PERSONAJES:

LUCIO TORREZ:

Edad: De 18 a 26 años, masculino – Tenor principal, no requiere baile.

Criado en la iglesia apostólica, su padre es pastor. Tiene una voz melódica, es el Ministro de Música de la iglesia y tiene una relación secreta con el guitarrista de la iglesia Ricky Soto, de quien está enamorado. Su padre le ha dado el ultimátum de ir a EXIT, un grupo de conversión gay si quiere seguir en el ministerio de música, mantener su lugar en su familia y en la iglesia. Lucio siempre ha sabido que es gay, pero ¿cómo puede encontrar la manera de ser quien es y, lo que es más importante, expresar su verdadera voz?

MARTIN:

Edad: De 20 a 35 años, masculino – Tenor, se requiere algo de baile.

Ha sido drag desde que tenía 17 años y es un personaje fuerte con mucha experiencia de vida pero sin educación formal. Es un artista por derecho propio y la creatividad le resulta natural. Isleño del Pacífico adoptado por una familia mexicana, creció en Boyle Heights y ha luchado duro para mantener su lugar como un hombre abiertamente gay que no se disculpa por quién es. La vida no ha sido fácil para él y, a veces, esconde sus miedos y demonios con las drogas de fácil acceso para una figura de la vida nocturna. Es la diva definitiva con un corazón para los demás.

Mayor’s Crisis Response Director Says COVID-19 Vaccination ‘Literally Saved My Life’

Joe Avalos, a reserve LAPD officer, and director of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Crisis Response Team, credits the Pfizer vaccination with saving his life.

“When Joe Avalos developed a dry cough a couple of weeks ago, he thought it must be his allergies acting up, or all the dust from the new development in his neighborhood. The reserve Los Angeles Police Department officer and director of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Crisis Response Team did not think it was COVID-19, he said. After all, he’d received the Pfizer vaccination in December, and he was careful with social distancing and wearing his mask. “I was like, there’s no way,” Avalos said. But he was wrong. He did have COVID-19, from a breakthrough case of the highly contagious Delta variant, he said. And it almost killed him. What saved him, his doctors said, was the fact that he was vaccinated — which is why he’s now urging others, including fellow LAPD officers, to “think twice” before they refuse the jab.", By Kevin Rector, Los Angeles Times, August 10, 2021.

It's never been easier to get vaccinated. You can get vaccinated from your car or walk up to any clinic without an appointment or insurance. You can even get vaccinated during your daily commute because LA Metro offers the vaccine at transit stations across the County.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council passed Councilmember Kevin De Leon's efforts towards a Citywide goal of 25,000 affordable housing units and my amendment to integrate equity in the distribution of the aforementioned housing goal.  It is essential that residents seeking affordable housing are not limited to the few Council districts, the First District accounting for one of the largest number of permitted affordable housing units, but to all Council districts.  It is time that we evolve all our neighborhoods into communities that are diverse in every category possible.  Diversity reflects equity.  This is the Los Angeles, for which we all strive.

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.

Concejal Gil Cedillo, productor ejecutivo de “ARENA: A House Music-al”

ARENA es una obra musical basada en el ritmo house de la década de 1990 y enmarcada en el legendario club nocturno ARENA de Hollywood. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de amigos durante una época turbulenta en la que los contagios por VIH / SIDA aumentaron un 130% entre los latinos LGBTQ. ARENA es la historia de Lucio Torrez, un joven chicano de 21 años con una voz excepcional y director del ministerio de música en la Iglesia Pentecostal de East L.A., donde su padre es el pastor. Lucio tiene una relación íntima con el guitarrista de la iglesia y sus padres se enteran. Exigen que asista a Exist in Truth (EXIT), un grupo de conversión gay, para mantener su ministerio y seguir siendo parte de su familia o perderlo todo. Lucio asiste a EXIT y se da cuenta de que su verdad es lo más importante.

ARENA presenta más de 15 composiciones musicales originales y una gran coreografía, en una producción de TNH. El equipo creativo que trajo a Boyle Heights  obras como In The Heights, Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, Disney's Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical y Sister Act, ahora te presenta esta historia conmovedora y de mucha energía que te tocará el corazón, te pondrá de pie y saldrás cantando del teatro.

Dear Friend,

COVID-19 cases are leveling off slightly in CD 1, but still rising all around us. I ask you to please keep up your vigilance against the pandemic. I ask everyone to get vaccinated, tested if symptomatic, wear a mask, social distance, and wash their hands regularly. Be safe.

I invite you to take advantage of COVID-19 Residential Tenant Protections Webinars provided by the Housing + Community Investment Department. The workshop provides essential information for Los Angeles renters, property owners, and property managers who want to know their rights and responsibilities.

I am also happy to report that we have fully restored the hours at City libraries. Enjoy a good book!

We also thank our community partners who helped residents cope with the pandemic for participating in housing and domestic violence workshops, providing services, mobile grocery truck distribution, food, and hot meal distribution, and vaccination and testing sites.

I also join our cat lovers in celebrating International Cat Day on August 8th! Do not worry, dog lovers. Your day will come later this month.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO IN THE NEWS

“We support the economic opportunity that night markets provide to vendors and the culinary experiences it provides to consumers. However, it is unacceptable the way this site has negatively impacted the quality of life of Lincoln Heights residents and businesses. The illegal activity taking place at the Ave 26/Artesian Night Market is unacceptable,” stated Councilmember Gil Cedillo. “Our duty is to maintain clean, safe and secure neighborhoods.”

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.

The Los Angeles Public Library has fully restored service hours at all locations across the city, bringing the hours of operation back to the pre-pandemic schedule.

The library system began a phased reopening of its branches with limited operating hours in mid-April.  

While regular service hours are back, the libraries will continue to offer limited in-person services, such as browsing and checking out of materials inside the libraries, surfing the internet, and mobile printing orders

On International Cat Day, what better way to celebrate than by adopting or fostering a feline friend or a canine companion? August 8th is International Cat Day, a day to recognize these independent, curious, and adventurous pets who have the power to heal by themselves — at least most of the time. To encourage pet adoptions, LA Animal Services will be offering discounted adoption fees on Saturday, August 7th, and Sunday, August 8th. Adoption fees for dogs will be $51 (not including license) and $75 for puppies. The adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA.

Visit laanimalservices.com/adopt and identify an animal you would like to adopt.

Call 888-452-7381 with the Animal ID number or A# (example: A1234567).

LA Animal Services will share all the information available on that animal.

If you're interested in moving forward with the adoption, LA Animal Services will take your information and schedule a pick-up appointment.

During the appointment, the staff will introduce you to your selected animal.

To follow COVID-19 safety protocols, social distancing will be observed, and face coverings will be required during your scheduled appointment.

Amigos y amigas:

La variante Delta del COVID-19 sigue en aumento con 676 nuevos casos registrados durante la semana pasada, lo que significa más del 43% con respecto a la semana anterior.

Dada la gravedad de este aumento repentino, estoy apoyando que se requiera a los empleados de la Ciudad que muestren la prueba de que están vacunados contra el COVID-19. Es importante generar confianza en la ciudadanía y la seguridad en que los trabajadores de la ciudad que brindan sus servicios están vacunados. Hay dos puestos de vacunación en el Distrito 1: Glassell Park Recreation Center y en el Consulado de México. Por favor, vacúnate. Cuídate y cuida a tu familia.

Estoy muy satisfecho de los trabajos en conjunto de los departamentos de la Ciudad y del Estado para completar el nuevo “Ord and Yale Park” en Chinatown. Lo que comenzó como una idea para ayudar a nuestros adultos mayores a movilizarse entre Hill Street y sus hogares y arreglar un área en ruinas, se ha convertido en un hermoso paisaje urbano.

Mi voto de esta semana en el Concilio fue para lograr el cumplimiento de los derechos de paso público seguro y limpio que están completamente obstruidos. No hacer nada no conviene a nadie. Las acciones que tomó el Concilio esta semana son un progreso y no se deben retrasar. Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer servicios a todas las personas que lo necesite antes y durante los esfuerzos para limpiar y despejar el derecho de paso público, no poner una sanción por delito menor por incumplimiento intencional.

Mi voto para apoyar estas acciones fue impulsada por los logros de mi distrito sobre la construcción de las viviendas de apoyo más permanentes, en lo cual Distrito 1 es el número 1; la única oficina del Concilio que implementa diariamente lavandería móvil y duchas móviles, la operación de cuatro sitios clave de Project Roomkey, dos sitios del programa de estacionamiento seguro, dos sitios de refugio provisionales y un sitio de Homekey, es la oficina del Distrito 1.

Sigo trabajando con personas que apoyan o se oponen a mis acciones, para lograr el cumplimiento del bien común, lo cual es un trabajo que debemos hacer juntos para el progreso de todos.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

EVENTOS CON EL CEDILLO

Concejal inauguró parque público en Ord y Yale en Chinatown

Fotos: Team Cedillo and Steve Weingarten

El Concejal Gil Cedillo inauguró el fabuloso “Ord and Yale Park” en Chinatown. Estuvo acompañado por personalidades que colaboraron en la realización de este parque, incluyendo a la senadora María Elena Durazo, asambleísta Wendy Carrillo y funcionarios del Departamento de Ingeniería, del Departamento de Parques y Recreación, Biblioteca Pública, Parques del Estado de California y, los más importantes, miembros de la comunidad de Chinatown.

Lo que alguna vez fue una idea para que nuestros adultos mayores pudieran movilizarse entre Hill Street y sus hogares, ahora es una realidad. La expansión del Centro de Recreación Alpina y la reparación de un área en ruinas, se convirtió en lo que vemos hoy: Un armonioso entorno urbano, a unos pasos del centro cívico y cultural de la ciudad; este parque, con una dimensión de media acre, pronto se convertirá en un destino de esparcimiento para muchos.

Disfruta y comparte el reportaje del Canal 35 sobre la gran inauguración de la expansión de “Ord and Yale Park”.

Camarógrafo: Frank Aguilera, Audio: Martín Martínez, Editor: Kevin King

Diseñado en tres diferentes niveles, el corredor “Dragon Walk” conecta a tres terrazas del parque.

La Plaza Lotus, se encuentra en la parte más baja y está diseñada para practicar Tai Chi, y un lugar de descanso para quienes visitan la biblioteca al final de la calle.

El segundo nivel tiene un jardín de bambú, un área en donde los abuelos pueden reunirse alrededor de mesas de ajedrez mientras sus nietos juegan en un día de verano; está muy cerca de la Primaria Castelar.

El tercer nivel es el “Heavenly Garden”, diseñado como mirador y una torre de luz; es un lugar tranquilo en donde inicia la calle Hill Place.

Este espacio verde urbano fue creado para proporcionar un lugar de conexión social y actividad física, así como para crear un camino peatonal seguro y atractivo.

El concejal Gil Cedillo dijo el lunes que se debería exigir la vacuna COVID-19 para los empleados de la Ciudad. Cuestionó: "¿Cómo se genera la confianza del público si no se asegura que las personas que brindan los servicios estén vacunadas?" Un número creciente de políticos de Los Ángeles quiere exigir que los trabajadores de la ciudad se vacunen a medida que aumenta el número de infecciones, un paso ya anunciado en Nueva York, San Francisco y Pasadena.

Concejal Gil Cedillo, productor ejecutivo de “ARENA: A House Music-al”

ARENA es una obra musical basada en el ritmo house de la década de 1990 y enmarcada en el legendario club nocturno ARENA de Hollywood. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de amigos durante una época turbulenta en la que los contagios por VIH / SIDA aumentaron un 130% entre los latinos LGBTQ. ARENA es la historia de Lucio Torrez, un joven chicano de 21 años con una voz excepcional y director del ministerio de música en la Iglesia Pentecostal de East L.A., donde su padre es el pastor. Lucio tiene una relación íntima con el guitarrista de la iglesia y sus padres se enteran.

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.

'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.

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.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

COVID-19 in Council District 1 This Week

283 Additional Cases and 52,528 Total

2 Additional Deaths and 1,346 Total

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.

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.

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".

COVID-19 esta semana en el Distrito 1

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

Reporte Semanal

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.

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

Beautify LA Grant

SM_Beautify-LA-Grant-LOGO-MED

The Board of Public Works, Office of Community Beautification (OCB) and Keep Los Angeles Beautiful (KLAB) have launched the KLAB Community Beautification Grant or Beautify LA Grant. 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.

OCB and KLAB are now accepting proposals for the Beautify LA Grant until the submission deadline on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.

Amigos y amigas:

Los casos nuevos de COVID en el Distrito 1 disminuyeron drásticamente de 251 a 14, y las muertes bajaron de 9 a 1. Por favor, vacúnate, usa mascarilla y mantén la sana distancia. Si necesitas una vacuna gratis, llama al (213) 473-7001 o escribe a [email protected]. ¡Sigamos adelante!

Esta semana, en nombre de todos nosotros, en la ceremonia del Día Conmemorativo de los Veteranos en El Río, reconocí a miembros de nuestras fuerzas armadas que se sacrificaron por la libertad y democracia de nuestro país. Tuve el privilegio de honrar la memoria de John P. Pérez, quien sirvió en la II Guerra Mundial y vivió en Highland Park por más de 60 años; le entregué una bandera a Terry Pérez, hija de John, como muestra de nuestro profundo agradecimiento.

Por otra parte, te recuerdo que cuando hace mucho calor para ti, es más intenso para tus amigos de cuatro patas. Esto puede ser extremadamente peligroso, o incluso fatal, para las mascotas. Infórmate sobre los consejos para la temporada de calor para gatos y perros que te presento a continuación.

El Concilio abrió oficialmente la audiencia pública para las dos nominaciones de Monumento Histórico-Cultural (HCM) de Highland Park Heritage Trust: el Mechicano Arts Center y el Centro de Arte Público. Te pido tu apoyo importante para estas nominaciones.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

Concejal, Distrito 1
