The homeless man was smoking in an area that needed brush clearance.

The Pacific Palisades Task Force on Homelessness is hosting a Zoom webinar from 7 to 8 p.m. on Monday, July 27.

The meeting is titled “The Homeless Front: Where Are We Now?” And will feature Heidi Marston, executive director of the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) and John Maceri, CEO of The People Concern.

Although the homeless count in January was down in Pacific Palisades, it rose elsewhere, and officials estimate that 66,433 people were homeless at that time in Los Angeles.

This spring, a federal judge ordered homeless people living along the freeways be moved and housed, but when and where this will happen continues to be a challenging question.
