The next Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch Meeting at Your Corner is west of the “official” Melrose Village area, but is still part of our community and is in Basic Car Area 7A1 of the LAPD Wilshire Division. This will be on Wednesday, June 22nd starting at 7 p.m. at the corner of Clinton St. and Harper Ave. (Look for the large LAPD vehicle.)
Basic Car Area 7A1 is the northwest section of the LAPD Wilshire Division, and the Senior Lead Office (SLO) for the area is Officer Inga Wecker. Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch has posted a video of Senior Lead Officer Inga Wecker talking about a range of crime prevention and other safety matters. She also includes more details about representatives from LAPD who will be at this Meeting at Your Corner, so be sure to watch.
The Melrose Business Improvement District (BID) has partnered with electric car service ParkPlace Cali to offer a FREE shopping shuttle along Melrose Ave. every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 7 p.m. for the remainder of July (July 9 & 10, July 16 & 17, July 23 & 24 and July 30 & 31). With this shuttle, you can get from place to place without a long walk or moving your car.
The seven-seat shuttle — which looks like an open-air Cadillac — will have marked stops along Melrose Ave. on the north and south sides, and if you’re on the shuttle, you can ask the driver to drop you off. A map of the stops is posted on the Melrose BID website.
The Melrose Shopping Shuttle is being sponsored by the Melrose BID along with several Melrose businesses including Cosmo & Nathalia, The Groundlings Theatre & School, Love Baked Wings and Manic Panic. If it proves to be as popular with shoppers as expected, the BID may continue running it all summer into the fall.
