It's almost back to school time, which means it's time for our 2nd annual Saturn Set Up day!
Let's help the teachers at Saturn get their classrooms ready for the students.
Volunteers will get paired with a teacher who will let them know what they need, whether it is wiping down desks, decorating a bulletin board, or something else. Like last year, we'll be providing coffee and bagels for everyone to enjoy.
This year we've also asked teachers to create "wish lists" of school supplies, and we've made an Amazon wish list to make it easy for people to donate. Friends of Saturn will be collecting donations from local businesses and community members to make sure the teachers and students have everything they need to get the year off to a great start!
Sign up to volunteer here: www.volunteersignup.org/LQ4DA
If you're unable to volunteer, please consider making a donation by purchasing something from the teachers' Amazon wish list. When you add an item to your cart, select the Saturn Wish List Address in your address drop-down list.

One of our neighbors, David Dahlke, is bringing people together to repair and repaint the community kiosks on Pico Blvd -- and he needs our help!
Fifteen years ago, these kiosks were placed on Pico to provide folks with information about our neighborhoods. Over the years, they've faced taggers and the elements and some have become eyesores. Please consider volunteering a couple hours of your Independence Day weekend to help David turn these kiosks back into a useful resource for our community.
Email him to volunteer or get more info: email@example.com
The Department of City Planning has prepared the proposed Commercial Cannabis Location Restriction Ordinance, which would establish location restrictions and a limited immunity from enforcement of specified City prohibitions relating to commercial cannabis activity.

The Department will conduct a public hearing to gather input on the proposed ordinance on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. in Los Angeles City Hall, Room 1010. All interested persons are invited to attend.

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.
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.
