Is Your Street Light Out?The Los Angeles Bureau of Street Lighting has implemented a new online tool to report failed street lights - and it's really good! Go to http://bslonline.lacity.org/apps/slomap.html, click "Find Address." Enter the address closest to the light you are reporting, and up pops a map with every street light marked! Click the marker, and a little balloon pops up identifying the post type and identification number of the light, along with a submission form that allows you to describe the problem and report it to LABSL. Many thanks to LABSL and to Ben Seinfeld of Council District 4 for sending out an email blast about this big improvement over 311 for reporting this common occurrence

Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council ElectionsTime to talk about Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council (GWNC).
Some of you are not familiar with GWNC - if you

random. Developers and other interests had unfair access to their
Councilman. Residents wasted resources duplicating effort and trying
to work as individuals rather than as an organized group. Issues
