Meeting At Your Corner returns next Wednesday, 9/16

Next Wednesday — September 16th at 7:15 p.m. — the Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch Meeting At Your Corner returns at the corner of Waring Ave. and Curson Ave.

The is the first in a series of events to bring neighbors and public safety officials together outside, literally on street corners, to discuss issues relating to crime and other matters in our neighborhood.

This is an opportunity to meet with representatives from LAPD Wilshire Division and other Los Angeles officials. Those scheduled to be there include LAPD Wilshire Commander Capt. Howard Leslie, L.A. City Attorney Neighborhood Prosecutor Nooshi Zahiri, and representatives from Council Member Paul Koretz’ office.

Also scheduled to attend is our Senior Lead Officer (SLO) for Basic Car area 7A1 (west of La Brea Ave.). Depending on where we look for information, we may meet one or more of our SLOs. In case you’re wondering what that means, we have heard that our “official” SLO is Officer Inga Wecker, but she will not be on patrol during a brief medical issue. So we have an interim SLO — Officer Ray Moreno.

Come out to this Meeting At Your Corner to find out what is really going on regarding our SLO and other matters. And this  event is also supported by the Melrose Business Improvement District (BID), so it really is an event for our neighborhood. The LAPD Mobile Command Post will be there to help identify the proper location when you are there. meetingatyourcornerflyer2015-1

    Thanks for the work you do. I own 7206-7208 Melrose, and am concerned about the upcoming El Nino storms that are predicted. Our stores were flooded one year because the city did not clean the storm drains. Water rose in the streets and each car that went by splashed water onto the sidewalk then into the buildings! Is anyone checking that those drains will be free and clear when the monsoon season commences?
    Forgive me if this has already been addressed, but I’d like to know any action that’s been taken on this issue.

    • There was been some discussion of this at a Melrose Business Improvement District (BID) meeting after more recent heavy rains. This also seems like something to discuss with our Councilmember’s office. And even if the storm drains are clear, I think that the water coming down the hill from north of here make if hard for the water to all go down the drains. It’s basically a flash flood. The BID is looking at preparing sandbags in advance to have at properties in the area.
