UproarLA and Studio City for Quiet Skies have worked to secure the support of the Airport Authority of Hollywood Burbank Airport in our fight to stop the incessant low altitude flights over our neighborhoods. Finally, because of hard work, impassioned testimony and persistent pressure from YOU, our supporters, the issue of loud, low, nonstop air traffic over our neighborhoods is, for the first time, on the official agenda for the Commission’s next meeting.
What does this mean? On June 3rd, YOU will have the opportunity to tell the decision makers at BUR just how you feel. This is the first time they have added this issue to their agenda —WE NEED AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE TO COME TO THE MEETING TO IMPRESS UPON THE COMMISSION THE URGENCY OF THIS CRISIS. The public is welcome to attend these sessions and it is your chance to be truly heard–no protest necessary!
While the ultimate responsibility for the current unbearable flight paths may lie with the FAA, the BUR Commission has the ability and authority to demand a quick “fix”– just as LAWA did for VNY. Up until now, the Commission has been reluctant to publicly recognize there is a significant problem; and they have been unwilling to take any strong action to find a solution for our communities. Show up and let them know it is time they change course and pursue with urgency and vigor a simultaneous “fix” for BUR.
WHEN: June 3, 2019 9 am (arrive by 8:30 to leave time for parking, walking and signing up to speak if you so choose)
WHERE: Burbank Airport – 2627 N. Hollywood Way; the administrative offices on the second floor of the main terminal building
Parking is available in the Short Term Parking Structure, and is validated for those attending the meeting.
Come to the meeting and tell the Burbank Airport Commissioners:
How the new flight paths are affecting your life, destroying your peace, altering your community.
Demand they take action like LAWA did for VNY and get a quick solution
Be prepared to present science if you like; or present your own personal story; relate the experiences of your neighbors, friends, and family.
Tell them we can’t wait: we are suffering NOW!
Join your friends and neighbors at the meeting and share your story!
ww.VoteTolucaLake.org – This site has been set up to provide information on the candidates and the election.
This election is important as we have 28 candidates running for 14 seats. This means it is conceivable that we experience 100% turnover on our GTLNC Board. The GTLNC is lauded as one of the highest-performing and well-functioning Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles (out of 97). Let’s ensure we keep that momentum going!
LAPD is expanding their resources by deploying volunteers wherever possible to free up officers to do what they do best. You can now get trained to volunteer in a variety of capacities. You must be 18 or older, have no felony convictions, outstanding warrants, or pending criminal cases and live or work in the Operations Valley Bureau area. Classes are Mondays for 8 weeks.
Your TLHOA participated in the 2019 Earth Day hosted by the GTLNC. It was a huge success, with big crowds and lots of participants, including local restaurants for the Taste of Toluca. Chase Bank- Riverside and Lankershim.
On March 14th the TLHOA held its annual meeting with over 100 in attendance. The purpose of the meeting was to update its membership on past and upcoming events, and any new or past issues that affect Toluca Lake. It is also an opportunity to welcome new members, and introduce the Board of Directors.
Most importantly, there were several community leaders who spoke to help enlighten the membership of important topical issues. They included Councilmember David Ryu, Assembymember Adrin Nazarian, Darnell Tyler with NBCUni, Fire Captain Brian Stires, Jason Friedman (Public Safety Chair with the GTLNC) Dana Boyd (President of the TL Garden Club) Ryan Altoon (President of the GTLNC) Kari Negri (Beautification Partners and VP of the TLHOA) Jon Molin (President of the TL Chamber and Realtor with Ramsey Shilling) and Miles Orr who gave the Southwest Valley Community Plan update.
Steve Hampar, TLHOA President, thanked outgoing Board of Director Pam Scharlach for her dedicated service to the Community, as she was recognized by Councilmember Ryu and Assemblymember Nazarian with beautiful certificates.
What if there was a place where you could meet a pretty cool cop from the LAPD’s Bomb Squad, munch some cookies and help build a better community? Oh, wait, there is…
