In case you couldn't attend the last Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council Meeting, the Neighborhood Watch had a furiously scribbling note-taker on hand to document the proceedings. Here are some of the major highlights of the evening, cut and pasted, and posted online:
The City of Los Angeles Recreations and Parks Department presented plans for the Lincoln Heights Youth Center, also formerly known by some as the Griffin/Altura Project. The building of this facility is funded by Propsition K, with plans to provide services and activities to youth under the age of ten. The four components of the facility will include the youth center, junior arts, boxing, and a roller hockey rink. As construction begins, some neighbors have concerns about the already limited parking in the blocks surrounding the center and the building of a sound barrier wall which may be seen as another canvas for graffiti. The Department of Recreation and Parks hopes children will be walking, cycling, or taking public transportation to the center, so that parking does not become an issue. It is also expected that vegetation will cover the sound barrier wall to prevent graffiti.
