Last weekend, I had the pleasure of breaking ground on New Directions for Youth's (NDY) Health and Recreation Center in North Hollywood. This was a special event for me because I have long supported NDY's work with at-risk youth. For more than 43 years, NDY has transformed tens of thousands of young lives by creating a positive atmosphere for children in the San Fernando Valley. NDY serves 3,000 youth each year and has provided free services for a whopping 90,000 people in our communities.Read more

STUDIO CITY - Last week, the City Council voted to repeal the Studio City Residential Floor Area District (RFA), as it conflicted with the recently updated and more restrictive Baseline Mansionization Ordinance (BMO). In 2008, Los Angeles passed the original BMO, but many neighborhoods felt it did not go far enough and left too many loopholes for developers to exploit. Councilmember Krekorian agreed with the critics and, when he took office in 2010, worked closely with Studio City residents to come up with building rules for the neighborhood that supplemented the old BMO and helped protect the character of the community.Read more

On October 30, Harvard-Westlake made a tremendously important announcement: it is suspending its plans to build a parking structure on the west side of Coldwater Canyon Avenue, and will instead explore adding more parking capacity on campus. I want to thank the community for making its voice heard regarding the Coldwater project. I also appreciate that the school has listened to my concerns, and those of the community, and taken them seriously. The open discourse among the community, the city, the school and impacted neighbors highlights what makes our democratic process so great and important.Read more
From the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, to the recent earthquakes in Mexico City and the Southland, it's clear that disaster can strike at any time. Our newspaper headlines, television screens and social media feeds are inundated with stories recounting the debilitating affects of Mother Nature's wrath and the rising human toll left in its wake. News of these natural disasters certainly may seem overwhelming, but it should also serve as a great motivator to counteract them, and the best way to do that is to get prepared.Read more
