There is now a copy of the Framework Element EIR on This EIR is being used as a mitigation for the New Housing Element that includes almost 113,000 new housing units in LA by 2014. It addresses air quality, water, power and the rest of our infrastructure. The EIR was done in 1996 and updated in 2001. The Framework Element also addresses how community plans will be updated and states that there are serious Environmental impacts but that they can be mitigated by the Framework EIR. We need to weigh in on this and comment.

Go to On the left hand side of the page is the main menu. Go to the bottom and find Library. Click on it and that will take you to the EIR page which has a Growth and Infrastructure button. That is the Framework Element EIR completed in 1996 and updated in 2001. This is being used as the EIR for the New Housing Element.


Paul (the owner of Busby's) is starting a monthly neighborhood meeting for all of us to express any grievances (or positive comments too) about traffic, parking, noise etc. Also, if you have any problems with Busby's this is a good place to air these and speak to the owner about them. Please also feel free to give him positive feedback.

Paul asked that you all meet him the first Sunday of every month in front of Busby's from noon until 1pm and then you'll all go upstairs for free soft drinks, coffee and sandwiches and have a discussion. The first Sunday of every month starting next month.
