6. PLUM Committee
A. Consideration of the resolution presented by Yucca Argyle Tenants Association (YATA) as modified by developer Champion: Whereas HUNC recognizes that there is a critical shortage of new housing in Los Angeles and Hollywood in particular and that as a result of this shortage housing costs are increasing;
Whereas HUNC recognizes that many sites suitable for new, higher density housing may presently have lower density rent stabilized housing on it;
Whereas HUNC is concerned that when new housing is built, even on suitable sites, the dislocation of tenants may result in those tenants losing their affordable housing within the community they have historically lived;
Whereas HUNC has been asked by the Yucca Argyle Tenant Association (YATA) to oppose the demolition of the rent stabilized apartments at Yucca and Argyle by Champion in order for Champion to build a new higher density housing/mixed use project; and
Whereas Champion has made a proposal to HUNC and YATA by which new housing can be built on the Yucca-Argyle apartments site, without impacting the tenants ability to either maintain their current rent structure now and in the future or at the tenants’ choice be adequately compensating in order to be relocated.
HUNC recommends the follow motions(s) as follows:
1) HUNC would like Councilman Mitch O'Farrell to work with Champion on an entitlement plan which would allow the development of the Champion project to include a multifamily building into which existing tenants can relocate at their current rent and under an agreement which provides rights consistent with their current rent control rights;
2) HUNC requests it be provided an opportunity to review and comment on the final development plan by Champion as it relates to height and density;
3) HUNC requests that the City require Champion, during the construction of its project, to subsidize the difference between the rent presently paid by those existing tenants who choose to return to the project after its construction and not take relocation benefits and the rent necessary to be paid for comparable housing in Hollywood
4.) Provided the above items (6A1, 6A2, 6A3) are satisfied, that HUNC will not oppose the demolition of the Yucca-Argyle apartments as part of the proposed project
B. Motion to approve: Pantages Theater: Action(s) Requested: Conditional Use to allow the sale of dispensing of a full line of alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption in the entire premises of an existing theater.

So Tom, George, and I carpooled to the Treasurer's training yesterday. And we got to talking about driving participation, motivation, all those good things. I reflected on how hard we all have tried to not model ourselves on a mini City Council, and I remembered Carol Baker Tharp. Those were her words! She's the reason that I work as hard as I do with our NC. Erik, Robert A, and Susan P will remember her.
She was the 3rd General Manager of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, following Lisa Sarno. Appointed by Mayor Villaraigosa, she just plain inspired all of us. She first came to speak to us in 2003. Watch the videos and tell me that you don't wish that she hadn't died so young and so soon, only 11 months in office. I can only think of what might have been had she been around to implement her vision. But maybe, after watching this, you'll feel re-inspired too.
And it's pretty funny, I remember those long tables of food like it was yesterday!

President’s Message, By Susan Swan
Why get involved? We are asked that many times, and sometimes we even question that ourselves. It is indeed easier to not do something and let others make those tough decisions. But at some point, it becomes personal.
To quote the late Congressmen Tip O'Neill, "All politics is local." On July 21st, 2003, Carol Baker Tharp spoke to the HUNC board about volunteerism; “ people get involved initially because of a local issue that affected them personally. Then, the longer they stayed involved the more they began to see the connections between their own self-interests and the interests of the community.” (HUNC minutes, July 2003).
Her words, inspirational! We left feeling renewed and our commitment to the Neighborhood Council effort, positively recharged. We are even more thrilled because she is now the new General Manager of DONE*.
I’m certain that there is something that ‘gets’ you in your community, something that makes no sense, something that you wish ‘someone’ would do something about sometime! Well, that someone is you, and that sometime is NOW. Get involved!
We are planning several Town Halls this year that will address some of the most common concerns of our community, but maybe not your pet project or your pet peeve. The only way that you can ensure that you live in a vibrant, informed community, is to make it so. Email me with your thoughts. We are always there, and we are always listening.
*Tragically, Carol Baker Tharp passed away on Nov 5, 2007.
