This Saturday is a very important day for our coastal neighborhood. 35 people are running for seats on the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council. The CSPNC represents you and me and what goes on in our neighborhood.

We have attended many CSPNC board meetings and have been directly involved with committee meetings as well as various Neighborhood Watches. Based on our experience, we are recommending the following candidates for the 17 available slots. We have worked closely with or witnessed the respectful and fair working styles of Richard Havenick, Dean Pentcheff, Doug Epperhart, Adele Healy, and Shannon Ross. They are and would be excellent leaders. We are also recommending Robert Brandin, Erin Carter, Louis Dominguez, Robert Farrell, Mario Garcia, Bob Gelfand, Brian Kruglak, Raymond Medak, Aaron Nettles, Chimesa Medina, Jonathan David Myers, and Liliana Nikoloski-Marich.

We would like to see the new board work on changing the CSPNC elections so that each vote is private, voting made available online, and several dates available to vote. We also would like air quality, LAPD resources and staffing improvements, and street racing to be important issues discussed by the new board.

To be eligible to vote, you must be 18 years or older and live, work or own real property in the neighborhood and also those who declare a stake in the neighborhood as a community interest stakeholder (child goes to a school, member of an organization that meets in the CSPNC area, etc.). Please bring proof of stakeholder status (drivers license, utility bill, etc). Visit CSPNC.org for complete rules and candidate statements.

Changes expected for 2016 Car Show by the Sea

Car Show by the Sea

Representatives from the Legends Car Club spoke at the Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council (CSPNC) meeting this week regarding this year’s Car Show by the Sea event which supports many local organizations. Changes for next years event were proposed so as to make a smaller impact on the community.

Some of the proposed changes to the 2016 event:

  1. Stage cars prior to the event in Angels Gate Park, instead of Paseo del Mar.
  2. One-day waiver of the no parking signs on the north side of Paseo del Mar (from Gaffey to Roxbury). This year LAPD handed out approximately 100 parking citations.
  3. Move the LAPD command post from the corner of Gaffey and Paseo del Mar up to Angels Gate Park by the Korean Bell.
