SONC February Meeting on Homelessness

The SONC Board meeting February 12 will feature a presentation on Homelessness. We get many calls on this issue. There are 60,000 homeless in Los Angeles and many thousands more across the country. Our guest speaker will be Gita O’neill, Assistant City Attorney, who will speak on Mike Feuer’s program on homelessness. The City Attorney’s program is one of the best. This will be SONC Board’s regular monthly meeting at Sherman Oaks Elementary School Auditorium 14780 Dickens Street. We will be reviewing and voting on issues with the elephants at the LA Zoo, a proposed car wash, and other issues that affect you. Do you have an opinion? There will be time on the agenda for you to speak on what is important to you. For more information check our website for the agenda. www.shermanoaksnc.org.


Girl Scout Cookies
 
This is the 101st year that Girl Scouts will be selling cookies to raise funds. Look for a Girl Scout Cookie Table somewhere in the neighborhood. What’s back? Smores Cookies in two versions. You can get them in either chocolate dipped or Graham Cracker Sandwich. On a diet? No problem! You can buy the cookies and have them sent to our soldiers overseas. Just ask for the “Gift of Caring” cookie program to have your cookies sent to men & women serving us around the world.
 
Free Frozen Yogurt February 6
 
If you didn’t get enough sweets from the Girl Scouts stop by Yogurtland on Tuesday February 6. From 4-7 they will be giving free 5 oz. cups of frozen yogurt in lots & lots of flavors. There are 3 nearby locations: 4954 Van Nuys Blvd at Huston, 17200 Ventura Blvd near Louise, and 12050 Ventura Blvd near Laurel Canyon.
 
IgniteLA
 
Thanks to the young women of Sherman Oaks, ages 14 to 24, who joined the new program, IgniteLA. The free program that starts this month will show women how to:

  • Actively engage in the political process and assert and demonstrate their beliefs in the public arena
  • Actively listen to the perspectives of people they agree with and disagree with in order to clarify their own beliefs
  • Use civil discourse as a means to understand others’ viewpoints, clarify personal positions, and advocate and lobby for issues they care about
  • Be a part of the movement toward gender parity with equal numbers of women in office across all political parties and levels of government
  • Join their Neighborhood Council Boards and Committees

Trash Service at Condos, Apartments, and Businesses

We have been getting numerous complaints on the city's new trash collection franchise system for apartment buildings, condos, and businesses. Each area has been assigned to one company for the sole right to collect trash. The SONC opposed this ordinance before it was passed. LA City Councilman David Ryu voted against the ordinance.
The complaints include increased rates, skipped pick ups, added charges and poor service. There have been thousands of complaints and the city has now set up a system for taking complaints. There are three ways to do it:
  1. Call 311 to make your complaint or to dispute a bill.
  2. Go online to recycla.com and fill out the online form to make your complaint or to dispute a bill.
  3. For landlords, residents, business owners, and building managers who have transitioned to Waste Management there will be Waste Management office hours to meet with you at David Ryu’s Council office. Please sign up at this link: https://goo.gl/forms/pUbwAc9JrxeVLdtp1 Waste Management will contact you separately to confirm your appointment date and time. 
Whatever method you choose to use, be sure to give facts. How much was the increase? What date was the pick up missed? Or what problem actually happened. They know you are upset or angry, but they need the facts.

About SONC

The Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council is the first level of your city government. We are not homeowner's association or a club; we are an important part of your city government. We are here to bridge the gap between you and City Hall. Board members are elected by the public and serve without pay. Do you have a city related question or problem? Contact us by using the contact form on our website, www.shermanoaksnc.org, or call (818) 503-2399. Board meetings are at Sherman Oaks Elementary School Auditorium, 14780 Dickens St, 6:30 PM the 2nd Monday evening of most months. All meetings are open to the public. The Council files "Community Impact Statements"(CIS) with City agencies and the City Council on important pending issues. If you miss a meeting you can read the CIS or the minutes on the website after they have been approved the following month.
 
Wild Animals Among Us

LA Animal Services will be hosting wildlife workshops for the community at the City Animal Shelters throughout Los Angeles. Wildlife staff specialists will share educational information with residents on how to handle wild animal situations they may encounter in their neighborhood and help address concerns. Native wild animals live throughout the Los Angeles area and can usually be seen year round. Normally, native wildlife are no threat to people and keep their distance. However, if they have access to food, water and cover around your property these animals will lose their fear of humans and be back to bother you and your pets.

Preventing Home Burglaries

There have been a string of home burglaries starting in North Hollywood and working west through Studio City and Sherman Oaks. These are done by professionals. If you see a burglary in progress, do not confront the burglers – Call 911 immediately. The police have already made arrests, but there are more active thieves working the area. To foil a potential burglary before it happens:
1) Homeowners should make an attempt to give the impression someone is home at all times, which would include leaving a car in driveway, leaving lights on in and around the home at night.
2) Noise inside the house (leave TV or radio on) to give the impression someone is home.
3) Use one of the commercial security services that have become popular, inexpensive and easy to use, including but not limited to video recording devices.
4) Use pets such as a dog for property protection and deterrence. Don’t leave doggie doors open when you are not at home.
5) Most importantly, make contact with your neighbors and look out for each other’s homes.
6) Be suspicious of unusual vehicles or persons slowly traversing through the neighborhood or strange cars parked on a quiet street with someone sitting inside.
7) ALWAYS and IMMEDIATELY contact law enforcement when you believe you are seeing something suspicious in the neighborhood.
8) Social media and NextDoor are important, but information should not just be posted without also sharing the information with the police.

Going to Pot

For the first time in California stores can sell M------ (The word is left out because some internet providers will not deliver this email if it contains the word.) The law passed by voters in 2016 went into effect January 1. Previously, the product was sold for medical reasons; now it can be sold for any use. Users must be at least 21 years old. There are new state laws that limit what uses are allowed. You cannot smoke it while driving. It is not legal to have an open bag of edibles made with it in the car; keep it in the trunk. It was already illegal to drive under the influence of it; it counts as DUI just like alcohol.
The new law also allows anyone to have past offenses and convictions for M_______ removed from your record. This applies to about 1 million Californians. A clean record will allow people to vote, apply for a loan or license, and answer “NO” when an employer asks if you have had any felonies or drug convictions or when filling out a form. We do not have any information on this. If your need is immediate, you should check with the California BCC at [email protected] or (833) 768-5880.

Text to 911

Mobile users in Los Angeles County now have the ability to send text messages to 911, giving hearing and speech impaired residents, or those in situations where it is too dangerous to dial 911, a potentially life-saving option. LAFD urges the public, “To call if they can -- text if they can’t.” Learn more at http://www.lafd.org/news/text-911-comes-los-angeles.

Two Centers are located right here in the Valley at the Mid Valley Regional Library, and the Van Nuys Branch Library. Also online at https://www.lapl.org/veterans.

Party Houses

The Party House Ordinance was passed by the LA City Council on December 12. The ordinance was introduced by our councilman, Councilman Ryu. It will give the LAPD greater enforcement power to control massive parties that disturb residential neighborhoods.

Best Desserts – Yum!

TimeOut LA chose the best desserts in the city. One Valley dessertery made the list! Helados Pops is located at 450 N Maclay in San Fernando. This family-run operation is one of SFV's best ice cream shops, piling scoops of house-made, organic sorbets and ice creams into waffle cones and freshly-hollowed coconuts. Flavors rotate daily, but you can almost always find the Lucuma—a fruit-based ice cream with natural nut notes—as well as the raw cacao. Open daily Noon to 9pm. Desserts range from $2.75 to $7.99.
 
Hello to Spring - Free Trees!

Sherman Oaks Traffic Plan

In October there was a public meeting to discuss possible changes to traffic patterns in West Sherman Oaks south of Ventura. There have been surveys so members of the public could voice their concerns. Contrary to rumors; these surveys were not a vote with winners and losers. The surveys were a search for good options and answers. The City Council office and the Dept. of Transportation are currently evaluating more than 1,000 responses.

Public Safety

The CERT 1 (Community Emergency Response Team, Level 1) Course will continue this month – you must be registered to attend. Seats are still available. If you missed out on this series email Kristin Sales at [email protected] to get in on the next series.
The next Public Safety Committee Meeting will be Monday, Feb 26, 2018 at 6:30pm at the Sherman Oaks East Valley Adult Center on Van Nuys Blvd. For more details, contact Melissa Menard [email protected]

Sign Up to be Notified About Emergencies

Sign up for Reverse 911 to be notified in an emergency. Land lines are already on the list. But, most homes now have mobile systems that are mounted on the house. They need to be registered. You can also register your cell phone. Go the webpage emergency.lacity.org/notifyla and fill out the form. You can choose to be notified by voice on your home or cell phone, by email, or text.
5) Have an evacuation route planned. Have two in case one is cut off.

New Speed Limits

More than 150 streets throughout the city have had speed limits changed. In Sherman Oaks there are 3 streets: Sepulveda Blvd from Plummer to Valley Vista raised from 35mph to 40 mph. Burbank Blvd from the #405 to the city of Burbank raised from 35mph to 40mph. Huston from Hazeltine to Cedros lowered from 30 mph to 25mph. With these changes speed limits can be enforced on 2/3 of LA's streets. The Dept of Transportation plans to have limits that are enforceable on every street in the city by the end of this year. There are 3 reasons for the change 1) Public Safety will be improved 2) the police will now be able to use Radar Enforcement. 3) The city needs money to pay for the project. There will be lots of speeding tickets issued.

Traffic and Transportation Committee

Are you interested in helping solve our Traffic Issues. Are you interested in the planned solutions for the Sepulveda Pass Traffic:  Then please join us on Feb 7th at 6:30 pm at the Sherman Oaks Library, for our Neighborhood Council Traffic Committee meeting. There will be presentations on solutions that have worked in other cities, along with updates on the Metro Plans to solve the Traffic in the Sepulveda Pass. For more information email Avo Babian [email protected].

Does Your Street Need Speed Humps?

The City Council restarted the Speed Hump Program after an eight-year pause. When LADOT opened up an on-line application process last fall, the overwhelming response request allocations filled within two hours of the link going “live.” Staff capped requests at 486 locations to provide adequate review, and found 117 locations feasible for installation. The Speed Hump Application period opens twice a year. Applications can be filed online starting 8AM February 15, 2018. Get your information ready now so you can file in the first few minutes. Only 30 applications will be allowed per council district. Of those 2 will be chosen and completed in about a year. For complete instructions on how to request Speed Humps go to http://ladot.lacity.org/how-do-i/request-speed-humps. It is a 3 step process. Read the information page now. You will need a person that is willing to coordinate the process as a liaison for your block. You will need to get 50% of the people on your block to agree to the installation. Get the commitments now. You will be required to do the first 2 steps online and the available applications will be filled within a few minutes. After you have done the first 2 steps the Department will do the third. Note two things 1) You are not guaranteed to have your request filled 2) The city installs Speed Humps not Speed Bumps. “Bumps” are the small bumps used in parking lots; “Humps” are the larger things you see in a street. 
 
Green and Beautification Committee

Would you like to know what plans are in motion to Beautify Sherman Oaks. Would you like your input on how to improve our standard of life in our Community? Then join us Feb 13th at 6:30 pm at the Sherman Oaks Library, for our Green and Beautification meeting.

Free Garden Mulch

Garden mulch enriches your garden soil, keeps the soil from eroding, and keeps retails moisture so the soil doesn’t dry out. The LA City Sanitation Department makes mulch out of the garden waste collected in green barrels. That mulch is available to Los Angeles residents for free! There are 3 ways to get this free mulch in and around Sherman Oaks.
  1. Free. Call the Dept of Sanitation and get free delivery of free mulch. Call 800-773-2489. You can order a full load of 5 cubic yards that covers 500 square feet with a layer3-4 inches thick or a ½ load of 2 ½ cubic yards that covers 250 square feet with a layer 3-4 inches thick. You need a place for them to dump it and someone must be present to sign for it.
  2. Free. Pick up any quantity you want in Van Nuys at 15800 Victory Blvd near the Tillman Plant. The entrance is south of the intersection of Densmore & Victory Blvd. Open Monday through Friday 7am to 3:30pm. Mulch is delivered there on Monday and is available until it’s gone.
  3. Free. Pick up any quantity you want in North Hollywood at the corner of Vineland and Chandler. Open Monday through Friday 7am to 5pm. Mulch is delivered there on Monday and Thursday and is available until it’s gone.
Free Wood Chips

Chip Drop is a free service that helps connect arborists with homeowners and gardeners in their area who would like to receive wood chips. They’re currently working with arborists and homeowners in the Los Angeles area to create a list of people who would be interested in receiving a delivery of wood chips to their house FREE. All you need is a valid email address, and a location that you own or manage where you’d like to have woodchips dropped. When you sign up for an account, you’re site will be visible to all the arborists using the service. Your contact information will also be relayed to the crew in case there is an issue with the delivery. You’ll get between 4 to 15 cubic yards of wood chips delivered. So you’ll need a big enough driveway to handle that. 15 yards is about the size of a mini-van.
Before ordering read https://getchipdrop.com/expectations/.
Order your Chip Drop by signing up at https://getchipdrop.com/signup/ or ask questions by emailing [email protected]
 

Free Museum Admission

The Skirball at Mulholland & Sepulveda (closed Mon), The Getty on Sepulveda(open 7 days), The Fowler at Sunset & Westwood Blvd at UCLA(closed Mon & Tues), & the Hammer at Westwood Blvd & Wishire(closed Mon) all have free admission. Make it easy. Park here in the Valley and take the Metro bus #734 or #234 direct to any of them. Pick up the bus at Sepulveda & Ventura or points north.


LAPD says Lock it or lose it

Most cars that had items stolen were not broken into. They were left unlocked and became victims of opportunity. We've not heard one report of a car whose window was smashed or their lock tampered with. Leaving your car unlocked is just like putting something out on the street that you hope a scavenger will collect so you don't have to get rid of it. The difference is that you have things of value in your car such as your name, address, insurance info, and registration. You might even have an electronic garage door opener that will let them into your house.


DACA Permits

If you or someone you know has a DACA Work Permit that will expire on or before March 5, 2018 you can contact Congressman Brad Sherman's office for assistance and advice; (818) 501-9200.

Sidewalk repair

Does the sidewalk need repair in front of your home or business? The city is fixing sidewalks, but it’s a 30 year program. If you want to repair the sidewalk now, the city will share the cost and give you a rebate of up to $10,000 for residential & commercial properties. Get the info at http://www.sidewalks.lacity.org/ click on "rebates." Be sure to do this before you start work to get the details and qualify to get your rebate.


Potholes to be Filled This Month

Councilman David Ryu arranged the resurfacing of 53 streets in Sherman Oaks the past few months. More streets are scheduled in the next couple of months. Thanks to all who emailed to give us their favorite potholes. Our  pothole filling event will be on February 26. If you missed the deadline to report a pothole that needs filling send us the location now so we can have it fixed during our next event in August. In order to get the right spots fixed we need the address in front of the pothole, for intersections – the names of both streets, for alleys – the names of all 4 surrounding streets. Send us the locations – we'll get the holes fixed. What is most important is getting all the information about the needed repair. We want the crew to spend their time fixing it, not searching for it. Go to our website www.shermanoaksnc.org; click on “Contact us”; and type in the information.


Conserve Water – Get Paid

Last year may have brought plenty of rain to our city, but make no mistake — saving water is as important as ever. That’s why LADWP will now offer even higher rebates to people who want to conserve water by removing turf from their yards. Take advantage of the fall planting season, the turf removal rebate will increase for the next three months from $1.75 to $2 per square foot up to 1,500 square feet — as much as $375 more per customer.
