2023 Neighborhood Council Candidate Filing NOW OPEN

2023 Neighborhood Council Candidate Filing NOW OPEN

Get Involved in Your Community – Join the West Adams Neighborhood Council!

Do you want a voice in CITY SERVICES? REDEVELOPMENT of the West Adams Neighborhood? Other LA policies and issues important to you? Join our Neighborhood Council! YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Candidate Filing is open from December 23, 2022 – February 6, 2023.

While Neighborhood Council board members are volunteers, they are public officials elected by the members of their community. Most board members serve two-year terms; a few Neighborhood Councils have four-year terms.


Unlike other city, state, or federal elections, voting and being a candidate in Neighborhood Council (NC) elections is open to more than just the residents of a community. Participation is open to those who live, work, or own property or a business within an NC’s boundaries, as well as to “community interest stakeholders,” such as church members, local students (or parents of students), or members of local service organizations.

Candidates and voters need not be US citizens or legal residents to qualify. Participation is also open to the formerly incarcerated. The minimum age to vote is 16; the minimum age to run for most NC seats is 18, except for Youth Seat candidates, who may be between the ages of 14-17.

Excessive Heat Warning and Ozone Advisory

Excessive Heat Warning and Ozone Advisory

Los Angeles is expecting a long period of extreme heat from Wednesday at 11am through at least Monday at 8pm. Temperatures could reach up to 112 degrees in the San Fernando Valley and up to 105 degrees in downtown Los Angeles and the LA basin. This heat wave will also impact air quality, and smog will reach unsafe levels in many parts of the City. Since these extremely high temperatures and bad air quality will continue for many days in a row, it’s very important to be proactive and make sure you and your community have a plan to stay safe during extreme heat.

Keep cool by resting in shady areas or buildings with air conditioning and drinking plenty of water. If you do not live in an air-conditioned building, you can take refuge from the heat at a public library, recreation facility, senior center or other public air-conditioned building near you. You may call 311 to identify the cooling centers closest to you, or visit https://ready.lacounty.gov/heat/ to see a map of cooling center locations, and hours of operation (additional centers being added). Many pools and splash pads at your local Recreation and Parks locations will be available over the holiday weekend- you can find their hours of operation and locations by visiting the Daily Pool Status Website.

Check up on relatives and neighbors, especially if they have pre-existing health conditions or are sensitive to heat. Let them know the heat is coming and the ways to stay safe. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Additional information about staying safe during extreme heat, and a list of LA City cooling centers that will be operational during the Labor Day weekend are available at www.emergency.lacity.org/heat.

Take extra precautions if you work, exercise, or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, or until this period of extreme heat is over. See the image below as a guide to help you recognise f signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
To reduce risk during outdoor work, OSHA recommends frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments and staying hydrated. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. Employers must provide access to sufficient water.
Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency- Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location, and then immediately call 911. Non-emergency heat-related information can be found by calling 311.

La advertencia de calor excesivo y aviso de ozono para la región de Los Ángeles permanecerá en efecto, empezando desde el miércoles 31 de agosto hasta el lunes 5 de septiembre. La Ciudad de Los Ángeles espera un largo periodo de calor extremo empezando desde el miércoles a las 11 de la mañana hasta al menos el lunes a las 8 de la noche. La Ciudad de Los Angeles urge que los angelinos se preparen para el aumento de temperatura.
Las temperaturas podrían alcanzar hasta 112 grados en el Valle de San Fernando y hasta 105 grados en el centro de Los Ángeles, y la cuenca de Los Ángeles. Esta ola de calor también afecta la calidad del aire y el smog alcanzará niveles inseguros en muchas partes de la ciudad. Dado que estas temperaturas extremadamente altas y la mala calidad del aire continuarán durante muchos días seguidos, es muy importante ser proactivo y asegurarse de que usted y su comunidad tengan un plan para mantenerse seguros durante el calor extremo.

Los residentes pueden combatir el calor permaneciendo en la sombra o en un edificio con aire acondicionado y bebiendo agua. Si no viven en un edificio con aire acondicionado, pueden buscar refugio en una biblioteca pública, en un centro de recreaciones, un centro para mayores, o otros edificios públicos con aire acondicionado. Puede llamar al 311 para identificar los centros de enfriamiento más cercanos o visitar Https://ready.lacounty.gove/heat/ para ver un mapa de las ubicaciones de los centros de enfriamiento y el horario de atención. Muchas piscinas y áreas de chapoteo en sus ubicaciones de los centros de recreaciones estarán disponibles durante el fin de semana festivo; puede encontrar sus horas de operación y ubicaciones visitando el sitio web Daily Pool Status o Diario de la Piscina.

Contacte a sus familiares y vecinos, especialmente si tienen condiciones de salud preexistentes o son sensibles al calor. Hágales saber que se acerca el calor y las formas de mantenerse a salvo. Los niños pequeños y las mascotas nunca deben dejarse desatendidos en los vehículos bajo ninguna circunstancia. Información adicional sobre cómo mantenerse seguro durante el calor extremo y una lista de los centros de enfriamiento de la ciudad de Los Ángeles que estarán operativos durante el fin de semana festivo de Labor Day estan disponibles en www.emergency.lacity.org/heat

Tome precauciones adicionales si trabaja, hace ejercicio, o pasa el tiempo afuera. Si es posible, reprograme cualquier actividad extenuante para la mañana, o la noche, o hasta que termine este periodo de calor extremo. Vea las imágenes a continuación como una guía para ayudarlo a reconocer los signos y síntomas del agotamiento por calor y la insolación. Utilicen vestimenta ligera y ropa no-ajustada cuando sea posible. Para reducir los riesgos de las personas que trabajan afuera, la Administración de Seguridad y Salud Ocupacional (OSHA por sus siglas en inglés), recomienda descansos frecuentes en la sombra o en lugares con aire acondicionado. Cualquier persona que sufra de agotamiento de calor debe ser movida a un área fría y con sombra. ¡El golpe de calor es una emergencia! Llamen al 911. Para información adicional sin emergencia, llame al 311.
