The Local Volunteer Neighborhood Oversight Committee (LVNOC) will host their second meeting to discuss Project S78 WO #E170305D. The meeting will focus on the design of the LA for Kids Program at Engine Company 23 Junior Arts Center. This project is funded by Proposition K.

All interested community members are invited to attend. The meeting will be held on Thursday, March 15, 2018, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel, 120 S. Los Angeles Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Proposition K requires that a LVNOC be established to advise the City on the design of each project. The LVNOCs meet to receive information on the status of projects, gather community input, and advise the City of their desires and concerns regarding projects. A committee is comprised of seven (7) volunteers, of which four (4) are appointed by the Council Office of the District where the project is located, while the other three (3) are appointed by the Department of Recreation and Parks.

The Bureau of Engineering-Recreational Cultural Facilities Division (RCFD) is responsible for convening and facilitating these LVNOC meetings. The role of RCFD staff at these meetings is to help coordinate and facilitate each meeting, and provide information and other support as needed.

Proposition K funds the acquisition, improvement, construction, and maintenance of City parks, recreation facilities, and other projects through an annual real property tax assessment on City residents over a 30-year period. Funding is for capital improvements and maintenance.

Please come and participate in the process!
