Garcetti's List

El Grito

Last night, hundreds of Angelenos attended our city's El Grito festivities on Olvera Street.

El Grito celebrates Mexico's independence and is not only part of Mexico's history, but a part of Los Angeles's cultural heritage.

I'd like to thank Consul General of Mexico David Figueroa Ortega and Jose Duarte, President of the Comite Civico Patriotico, for joining us.

Celebrating the New Echo Park Solar "BigBelly"

Today we installed a solar-powered “BigBelly” trash can on the corner of Echo Park and Sunset Boulevard. Because it has a built in compactor, the BigBelly unit can hold four times as much trash as the average trash can making it more cost-effective and more environmentally- friendly than traditional trash disposal options.

The BigBelly unit, which was funded through city grants, will help prevent overflow trash from ending up in storm drains and in places like Echo Park.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the BigBelly installation possible, including the Trash Abatement Project.

FAME Church's 7th Annual Back to School Giveaway

Echo Park Landscape Architecture Survey

Posted by Landscape Architecture Survey on February 28, 2014 at 2:45pm 0 Comments

Hello, 

I am currently a graduate student in the landscape architecture department at CSU Pomona, and am doing thesis research concerning the extent in which the public participation process surrounding the Dodger Stadium and Barlow Hospital developments have engaged the public. I have posted this in hopes of collecting responses from a broad range of people. This is an academic project, and the responses will be used for research purposes only. Your information will NOT be used for commercial purposes. 
Here is a link to the survey. If you would be kind enough to forward this survey to anyone that you think may be interested in participating as well, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Elections

Where to go, what to do, when to do it:

I noticed you while I was waiting at the deli. You're a gorgeous latina (I think) with a lip ring. I'm a white guy. We made eye contact a few times, but I should've said hello while we were waiting at check-out. Hopefully you see this.
