Sidewalk Is Not Handicapped Accessible
(Editor’s note: After the story “BID Questioned about Parking Meter Funds: Is the Group Going to Reject a $50,000 Grant?” Long-time resident Dick Littlestone, who singlehandedly took on the VA to expand burials by building a Columbarium in West L.A.—and won–sent a letter to Circling the News and other officials about a possible place to spend parking meter revenue money.)
The Antioch Street east side sidewalk is impassable to disabled persons by
wheelchair, and very difficult with walker–at a curb by the Medical
Building of the alley between Cafe Vida and the Medical Bldg. See attached
Using a small portion of the proposed $50,000 LA City Parking Meter
Funding to Pacific Palisades, a relatively inexpensive riser could be
installed similar to the existing sidewalk riser next to Cafe Vida.
There certainly would be other worthwhile community projects for which
those funds can be used. It seems unconscionable for the Chamber not to
welcome this rare offer by our Councilman to the Palisades.
