BCC Highlights


Brentwood resident Rebecca Barron urged the BCC to support a citywide ordinance that would require those who use various poisons on their properties – rat poison, gopher poison, various insecticides, etc. – to install signage alerting neighbors.

According to Barron, several dogs in the neighborhood have been poisoned, sometimes lethally. Ray Klein, member of the BCC, said the issue of second-hand poisoning is real, and that a dog of his got sick after eating a rat that had been poisoned somewhere.

Several in the audience chimed in with similar horror stories and urged fellow dog owners to keep their animals on a short leash.

The BCC voted to take this up with the City Council, since it would likely require a citywide ordinance and not something that could be unilaterally imposed on Brentwood only.

Ken Kahan, developer, asked for the BCC to endorse a slight variance to his plans for “bw†at the northeast corner of Barrington and Wilshire, where a 78-unit apartment building is under construction.

Plans approved several years ago called for a widening of the street on the east side of Barrington so cars could pull over in front of the building. Kahan said that parking would not be an issue because most traffic would be routed through an alley behind the building, and that it would be more neighborhood-friendly to keep a wide sidewalk so as to accommodate an “outdoor café†feeling and leave more room for pedestrians. The BCC gave its blessing to Kahan’s proposal.

Hillary Norton of FAST, or “Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic,†discussed the need to work on all the little things – potholes, synchronizing lights, more and better buses, etc. – in addition to big-ticket items like subways and light rail. Norton said a small reduction in the number of cars on the road can make a big difference in overall traffic. For more information, go to www.fastla.org.

Sullivan Carter and others gave a presentation on Proposition 37, which calls for food processors to alert when they are using GMOs, or genetically modified organisms.

Both Archer School and Brentwood School are asking for conditional use permits to build new facilities on their properties.
