Hancock Park/Windsor Square Power Outage Virtual Town Hall Tonight at 7

Hundreds of local residents lost power for three days during the last winter storm. LADWP officials will join City Councilmembers Katy Yaroslavsky and Hugo Soto-Martinez for a Power Outage Town Hall tonight at 7 p.m., organized by the Hancock Park and Windsor Square homeowner associations.

This evening at 7 p.m., our CD13 and CD5 City Council members Hugo Soto-Martinez and Katy Yaroslavsky will participate in a Town Hall on the recent power outage, organized by the Hancock Park Homeowners Association and the Windsor Square Association to help residents understand what happened and what the city can do to prevent extended power outages in the future. Officials from LADWP and a representative of the Mayor’s office will also be participating. All are welcome to join the virtual town hall followed by questions and answers.

“Our residents would like some answers about what happened,” Cindy Chvatal-Keane, Hancock Park HOA President told the Buzz. “We spent the weekend advocating for repairs in the neighborhood with Councilmember Yaroslavsky and her team.”

“If you were impacted by the recent power outages, some of which lasted over 48 hours, please join us tonight to ask your questions of the LADWP,” wrote the Windsor Square Association board in an email sent to residents today. “Tonight’s Town Hall meeting will focus on the City’s response to the recent power outages.”

In our reporting throughout that weekend, we  heard from readers who were completely frustrated with the communication and response from LADWP. We also heard from readers who were deeply grateful for efforts of the crews many working late into the night, in the rain and the cold to restore power.

As we reported last week, LA City Councilmembers Katy Yaroslavsky, Nithya Raman and Hugo Soto-Martinez are asking what happened and how we can be better prepared for the next disaster that will inevitably come. Yaroslavsky and Raman introduced a motion to the Los Angeles City Council calling on the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power to report on its response to last weekend’s winter storms, as well as its plan for increasing resilience in our power grid. The motion was seconded by Soto-Martinez.
