Community Support Still Needed to Keep Greater Wilshire Area United in Round 2 of Redistricting Hearings

As the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council and many of its stakeholders were pleased to learn last week, the entire Greater Wilshire area has been reunited in the draft map of new city council boundaries released by the City Council Redistricting Commission.  But the job isn’t finished yet.  Now, as discussion and refinement of the draft map continues, the Redistricting Commission will hold a second round of public hearings to invite input. The first of these meetings will be held on Wednesday, February 1 in our own back yard – at the Ebell Theater, 4401 W. 8th St., at 6:30 p.m.

As with the last Commission meeting before the draft map was released, the GWNC is urging as many area stakeholders as possible to attend the meeting to show support for maintaining our reunited area.  We need to remember,  as the inevitable tweaking of the draft map continues, that whatever new boundaries are finally settled on, they will serve us for the next 10 years. So until the new maps are set in stone, we need to keep the momentum going. Please attend Wednesday’s meeting and add your voice to the chorus for a united Greater Wilshire.

  1. I would like all of GWNC to be united in CD4.

    We at Ridgewood Wilton Neighborhood Association [RWNA] have worked successfully with that office on so many issues and don’t want to lose support by being the eastern frontier of a westside district.

    For example, the Buzz did a great job reporting the recent CD4 meeting with LAPD, SASNA and RWNA to combat street prostitution next to elementary schoolyards at Charles Kim and St. Brendan’s. That is just an example of the work we don’t want to have de-railed by changing Council Districts.
