City Council Rules Committee: Cannabis Regulations

Dear City Residents,

Just wanted to reach out once again on the subject of Cannabis in the City of Los Angeles and invite you to upcoming Rules Committee meetings over the next few weeks. I also anticipate that draft regulations on a variety of the subjects you care about (e.g. land use, sensitive use, licensing process, operational requirements, NC and community input, etc.) will be released sometime in June for a 60-day public comment period prior to any further action.

Thurs. May 25th @ 6pm - Council Chambers, City Hall - Rules Committee meeting and panel discussion with cannabis regulators from Seattle, Washington and Denver, Colorado

Tues. June 6th @ 6pm - Council Chambers, City Hall - Rules Committee meeting and panel discussion on the topics of testing laboratories and public health

I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming meetings and appreciate your ongoing input on this issue.

Warm Regards,

Pico Great Street Zine Workshop

As more folks are hearing, a stretch of Pico Blvd between Fairfax Blvd and Cochran was among those chosen as a Los Angeles Great Street! Improvements to this short stretch will also benefit our surrounding neighborhoods.

The Pico Great Street Collaborative has been discussing art ideas for the street, especially (but not only) those that will calm traffic and otherwise enhance safety. Have you got relevant art project ideas to share? We are producing a zine we'll distribute that showcases ideas, and invites others to submit more.

This is a paper, pens and scissors event (not so much digital, and black & white only), so come with words, drawings, photos and other printables.

Page size is 5.5 x 8.5", and working area will be 4.5 x 7.5" (we can't print all the way to the edge of the page).
