Hey North Hollywood! It's looking like we may be redistricted. What does that mean for us here in the NoHo Arts District? We may move from Council District 4 with Councilman Tom LaBonge to Council District 2 with Councilman Paul Krekorian. Here's a nice sumary from our pals at the L.A. Times:
"A city commission has proposed changes to the lines that define Los Angeles City Council districts. The public will have five weeks to review the maps and comment before the panel's final vote and a plan goes to the City Council for consider
ation. The maps below show how the changes compare to the current map." - Los Angeles Times
Here's an interactive map provided by the L.A. Times that will show the proposed council districts for all of Los Angeles, including our own neighborhood of North Hollywood. http://graphics.latimes.com/la-council-redistricting/
What's your thoughts?
Councilmember LaBonge reacts to proposed Council District Boundaries released by the Redistricting Commission
Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge on Wednesday reacted with disappointment to the Draft Redistricting maps released by the City of Los Angeles Redistricting Commission.
“In the interest of the city as a whole, I’m very disappointed in the draft-map released by the Redistricting Commission,”
said Councilman LaBonge. “The people of the 4th District participated in the public hearings on redistricting, stating loud and clear the importance of neighborhood integrity, the balance of diversity and the political representation of communities of interest in Council District 4. This draft redistricting map weakens the political representation of the Santa Monica Mountains, fractures the community of Hollywood among three Council districts and dissolves the historic core of Council District 4 – the greater Wilshire area, including the Miracle Mile, Larchmont Village, Windsor Square, Pan Pacific Park and Park La Brea. What disappoints me most is that the will of the people of the 4th district was seemingly ignored by this important process. “I therefore encourage all interested residents and community leaders of the 4th District to attend the upcoming public meetings on redistricting and make their voices heard unequivocally on keeping their neighborhoods and communities of interest together.”http://www.tomlabonge.comhttp://www.nohoartsdistrict.com
