| Dear Residents, |
SPBID Board of Directors Meeting 2/24/21 – Hotel Project Update During the South Park BID Board Meeting on 2/24, Directors and attendees were shown presentations from the developers of the Hotel Project and from Luma’s Board and Hotel Committee members. The SPBID Board voted not to give their recommendation to the project and asked the developer provide additional information. We’ve received an update that the BID has invited the developer to attend their Infrastructure and Planning (IP) Committee meeting on Thursday, 4/8 for the purpose of getting to the bottom of the issues discussed at the 2/24 meeting. This meeting is open to the public so all can attend and they will have a public comment agenda item. We will continue to provide updates on this upcoming meeting and project as they become available.
Higher Crime in South Park Captain Scott Harrelson with LAPD’s Central Division was also at the SPBID meeting on 2/24 and reported that crime has been higher in South Park since the pandemic. There was an increase in incidents with firearms and shots fired, disturbances, and aggravated assaults between April 2020 to mid-Feb 2021. Barcito was also broken into this last week-end, by two teenage boys breaking a glass panel on 12th Street to get into the store. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the police are investigating the incident.
