Westchester Weekly – November 27, 2016

The Westchester Weekly – your weekly round-up
of news for Westchester Families

Here’s your weekly recap of what’s new and notable in Westchester 90045, delivered to your inbox!
Living90045.com - Westchester CA up close & personal

Happy Sunday!
And a belated happy Thanksgiving as well! We are so grateful for our readers and take our job bringing you the 90045 news very seriously.

News came last week that the old Westchester fire station has been recommended for sale, not development by the City for affordable housing. It remains to be seen what somebody will want to build on that site, but that is a discussion we can save for another day. Given the dismal sales at the project on the old Frio’s site, maybe we can dodge a developer that wants to stuff the lot with AB1818 housing.

LAUSD is taking another run at offering a second Middle School program in Westchester. While I understand that there local families who support the existing MS, I also understand that many families in 90045 have turned away from the local program. Playa Vista Elementary School has a highly successful STEM program they developed with LMU. That group of families has been instrumental in driving the new MS program. There is a meeting at Westchester High School in the auditorium on Tuesday at 6 pm to discuss the proposed program, which is intended to be an option for PV, PdR and 90045 families.

Speaking of schools, I was honored to sit on a panel recently for the CA Charter School Association to interview school board candidates for March’s race. One candidate was particularly colorful. Stay tuned. We’ll be hearing a lot more about the race in January.

As you plan holiday activities for your family and out of town guests this season, be sure to look at the 90045 calendar of events. We’re working overtime over here to get all the most interesting local and local-adjacent activities on the calendar. Did you know that Playa Provisions hosts an annual Snow Day in PdR? Don’t miss that gem coming up in two weeks.

Here are links to a couple of news items that caught our eye this week:

LMU is offering the public an app to get campus emergency alerts
LAUSD Eyes New Middle School In Westchester
Finding Peace In Chaotic Times
Schedule For LAPD Pacific Santa Sleigh Stops
The Sand Berms Are Up In Playa del Rey

Have a great week!

Westchester Weekly – Week Ending November 12, 2016

Westchester Weekly – a weekly round-up of news for Westchester Families

Here’s your weekly recap of what’s new and notable in Westchester 90045, including fun things to check out this weekend!


Westchester Weekly - News for Westchester families

Happy Sunday!

Well it’s been a week, hasn’t it? My family was super happy to see Measure M pass and look forward to having a world class transportation system in LA. OK, someday having a world class system. 🙂 Next up? City and school board elections in March. Do you think people will turn out to vote or is everybody burned out?

Turning our attention back to local issues, the Planning Commission voted this week to give Kentwood the more liberal R1Vnew designation when our zoning ICO expires in March. I was at the hearing and will write more about this in the near future. In the meantime, if you don’t live in Kentwood, you really should read this article about impending changes in the other parts of the City, including non-Kentwood Westchester neighborhoods.

Other local issues of note are (1) the WNA meeting on Monday; and (2) the brewing fire station controversy. The WNA or Westchester Neighbors Association is a group that has been around as long as I’ve been paying attention to Westchester politics (+/- 2008). They haven’t been very active, but I’m checking them out tomorrow night to see if they might provide a good forum for addressing our local issues. As a bonus, Mike Bonin is appearing at the meeting to report on what’s “hot” in Westchester and presumably to take questions.

Speaking of what’s “hot,” there has been a super heated conversation on NextDoor about the future of the old Westchester fire station at 85th/Dunbarton. Mike Bonin has offered up that property as part of his “potential affordable housing opportunities in LA” initiative. The property might be used as affordable housing or it might be sold to finance other affordable housing opportunities. Look for the Kentwood Home Guardians to get involved with this issue as the fire station falls squarely within the association’s borders. If you aren’t a KHG member, you can give input on the Councilman’s website here.

And on the topic of our wallets (how much more local can we get?), my real estate trend graphs have been updated to reflect the October numbers. Prices continued their steady upward climb, but the pace of sales slowed. Is the pace related to the election as people took a “wait and see what happens” approach? Or maybe the slowdown is simply seasonal. We’ll see. A republican administration presumably bodes well for business and, hence, real estate.

Have a great week!
