News

Every year, Los Angeles City Council Members get the chance to honor one woman in their district; a pioneer whose work is changing the lives of Angelenos every day.
This year the honor went to Sylvia Lacy!

Council President Herb Wesson said in a very touching speech, "It's a woman's world and Sylvia Lacy helps run it."

Previous "Pioneer Women" are our own Stevie Stern (Past President, UNNC) and Donna Jones (West Adams Avenues).

It’s time for the neighborhood Street Fix Blitz! The Bureau of Street Services will be sending out a repair truck to streets in our neighborhood on October 31 that need repairs such as potholes, pop outs and patching of eroded and cracked areas. Report any areas that you have seen that need repairs to streets2fix@unnc.org by October 22 and we will send this information to Street Services, thank you!

LOS ANGELES — Changes to the City of Los Angeles' Water Conservation Ordinance went into effect today for Los Angeles City residents and businesses, allowing LADWP customers to water with sprinklers up to three days per week.

Customers whose street addresses end with an odd number – 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 – are permitted to use their sprinkler systems on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Customers whose addresses end in even numbers – 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 are permitted to do so on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Dear Neighbors,

We would like to update you on UNNC’s efforts to have more community and City Planning Department oversight at the Murphy Drill Site (2126 West Adams Blvd., at Gramercy Place.)

Recently, the oil and gas operator at that location (Freeport McMoRan, or “FMOG”) proposed an expansion of its natural gas operations (installation of a CEB 800 gas burner) into the landscaped hillside adjacent to 27th Street in Jefferson Park. 

What is the West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert New Community Plan?

The city is required by the state to have land use plans. Since Los Angeles is so large, there are 35 different plans. These plans are updated on a rolling basis, with plans getting updates roughly once a decade.

UNNC is in two of these planning areas: West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert New Community Plan and the South Los Angeles Community Plan.

What is the South Los Angeles New Community Plan?

UNNC has voted to support the renovation of Leslie Shaw Park in Jefferson Park. This park is the only open space in the boundaries of Jefferson Park.

A committee of Jefferson Park residents has formed to advocate for the park.

The initial meeting was November 15, 2012 at the Jefferson Branch Library.

Thank you to all of the candidates, voters, and volunteers who participated in our election.

Here are the results of the 2014 Elections.

Zoning is part of the story behind many of our everyday experiences: that vast, unshaded parking lot you had to cross from the sidewalk to the store entrance, the convenient bicycle parking space waiting for you, or that new building with solar panels down the street. MapIt creates a first-hand look at where zoning is and isn't working in neighborhoods across the City. Share a photo and tell us what you like or don't like about where you live, work or visit. Join the conversation as re:code LA moves forward.
