Dear Editor – Grace Lutheran Church and the Parking Problem

Dear Editor – Grace Lutheran Church and the Parking Problem

Dear Editor, I read Michael Gotz's recent letter to Culver City News with growing frustration. How can it seem reasonable for anyone to say because they own Culver City property at 4227 Overland Avenue, 4279 Le Bourget Avenue and 10714 Franklin Avenue they have the right to demand the use of the 10700 residential block of Farragut Drive as a parking lot?!?! Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church [...]

Dear Editor – No Billboards

Dear Editor – No Billboards

On June 25, 2014, the City Council considered a proposal from the Carlyle Group regarding the creation of a Freeway-Oriented Sign District along the 405 Freeway generally located along commercially zoned property between the City’s northern and southern City boundaries (the “Initial Proposal”). I was then, and am now shocked and appalled that the Council, under any circumstances, would even [...]

Dear Editor – Scott Houston for Water Board

Dear Editor – Scott Houston for Water Board

This Tues. Voting Day we will have the opportunity to elect Scott to this little known, but very important Board. West Basin Municipal Water District is a public agency that purchases and imports water from the Metropolitan Water District. It also recycles water that would otherwise evaporate or flow directly to the Ocean. It serves an area of 185 square miles, 17 cities in southwest Los [...]

Dear Editor – Correction on “Upward Bound” Timeline

Dear Editor – Correction on “Upward Bound” Timeline

Dear Editor, Regarding the Upward Bound facility on Washington Blvd. & Beethoven St. in West Culver City (L.A. 90066) Upward Bound may indeed have been helping homeless families since 1991, but not in Culver City (their main facility is in Santa Monica). The conditional use permit for the Culver City location was issued by the Planning Commission on October 24, 2007. It took approximately [...]

Dear Editor – Senior Protests Staff Change at Senior Center

Dear Editor – Senior Protests Staff Change at Senior Center

Dear Editor, Culver City Senior Center gym room overseer, Jim Fimiani, has 'suddenly' been fired with no explanation after 8 good years, Wednesday Oct 22 is his last day. Why? Jim Famiani is an actual trainer and a true asset to the Senior gym. Fifty to one-hundred members have shown up at various Senior Center board meetings in support of Jim but numerous attempts to reverse the decision have [...]

Dear Editor – Being Heard Over the Plane Noise

Dear Editor – Being Heard Over the Plane Noise

Dear Editor, I have noticed with increasing frequency unfortunately more jets flying over Culver City. I have spoken loudly to the LA City Council and the director of LAWA (Los Angeles World Airport) but I need your help, you locals in Culver City. If you are hearing and seeing more of these jets that are making more noise and causing more air pollution, please call: LAX Noise Complaint phone [...]

Dear Editor – Stepping Into Safety

Dear Editor – Stepping Into Safety

I have been a resident of Culver City for over thirty years. This morning (Wednesday, August 20th) around 9:30 I was at the intersection of Kinston and Jefferson. I had just pushed the pedestrian crosswalk button and was awaiting my turn to cross the street. The white pedestrian icon activated notifying me that it was my turn to cross the street. I looked both ways and then stepped off the curb. [...]

Dear Editor – Culver City Smoking Ban

Dear Editor – Culver City Smoking Ban

Dear Editor - This whole “ban smoking in multi-family housing” is ridiculous. First, it is not up to the City to regulate personal habits that are legal. If a property owner says “I am going to allow smoking in my building” – disclosure, in writing, to new tenants is all there needs to be for them to make an informed decision. For condominium homeowners, they already have a governing [...]

Dear Editor – Offensive Advertising

Dear Editor – Offensive Advertising

Dear Editor: I have been a Culver City resident for 20+ years and have been active in the community as a parent, teaching artist, and citizen. I know many people who have worked tirelessly by volunteering in various capacities to keep our city one for which we can be proud. In spite of the efforts of many to keep our home a nice place to live, the recent ad blitz in Culver City for the film [...]

Dear Editor – Peace Starts Here, with Art

Dear Editor – Peace Starts Here, with Art

‎About 4 years ago we launched The Peace Project and began working in Sierra Leone, Africa. About 7 months ago, I posted that I wanted to go to the Philippines -- now The Peace Project is on the ground preparing to build the first community of 40 houses and a community center. A total of 200 houses are planned. A few years ago, Mark Damon Espinoza told me he had a dream that he ran into me [...]
