Bell Cart Lending Practices

Dear Residents,

For a while now we have been parking the bell carts on the 1st floor, outside of the double doors that lead to the garage. If you need to use one, please inform a front desk associate beforehand and again after you return the cart. Please don’t leave the cart on your floor or bring it into the lobby. This should make access easy for all and it will help preserve the lobby walls.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a wonderful day.


MyFig Update - 4/16 thru 4/20

Dear Luma Residents,

MyFig construction on 11th continues to trek along. See below for details on upcoming work this week and updates on overall project progress.

4/16 – 4/20 WORK
This week and next is focused on storm drain and catch basin construction. The work is occurring in 2 locations between 7A-3P daily,
1x storm drain work is between Hill and Olive.
1x storm drain work is between Grand and Hope.

Residents and businesses should be mindful of loud work and detouring of sidewalk access during the abovementioned hours. Loud work includes jackhammering of sidewalks/curbs, offloading of concrete, also dust from the jack hammering. During this work, pedestrians will be detoured away from the construction zone for safety purposes.

OVERALL PROGRESS
North-side still has some minor construction underway. This includes installing decorative sidewalk brick, landscaping elements and street light repairs.

South-side work has been quiet due to block by block surveying of the construction plans in relation to the actual street layout. Surveyed elements include new curbs, sidewalks, curb bump outs, ADA ramps, tree wells and electrical work for new street lights.

For any of your employees, residents, patrons or vendors, please let them know how any of the above-mentioned work may impact them. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to get you answers as soon as possible.

Crime Watch Reminders

Dear Residents,

THE BUILDING, PARKING GARAGE, PERIMITER ~ Please keep an eye out for any activity that appears out of the ordinary and report any suspicions, concerns or security threat to the front desk. (213) 742-0387. A phone call can be very helpful in preventing and decreasing security risks. Your cooperation is appreciated by all who call Luma their home.

ELEVATORS ~ If someone is in the elevator and cannot seem to select a floor, please do not scan your fob. Please direct the person to the front desk. This will prevent unauthorized access.

PARKING GATES, GARAGE ~ If a resident approaches the gate and there is a car and/or person waiting, DO NOT open the gate, unless you can confirm the person is a resident. Otherwise, wait a moment to make sure the person has a garage remote. If they remain in front of the gate, contact the front desk to report the person in front of the gate. Residents may go around to the alternate entrance or wait for Luma staff to verify the person at the gate. Please contact the front desk if you notice any suspicious foot traffic or activity around the parking gates. Never leave valuables in plain view. Personal items, including cell phones, GPS devices, laptops or backpacks/purses should be removed from vehicle. If you must leave personal items in your vehicle, place them inside the trunk and/or out of sight.

HOMELESS ~ There has been an increase in the number of Homeless individuals in the area recently. Please be sure to call in any sightings near the garage gates or around the immediate area to the SPBID (213) 841-1181, or police and/or the Front Desk (213) 742-0387.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN A VICTIM OF A CRIME OR A WITNESS ~ The top priority of the Los Angeles Police Department is to prevent crime from occurring. Unfortunately, in a complex urban society such as Los Angeles, it is not possible to stop all criminal activity. We understand that crime victims can become lost in a justice system that is geared to prosecuting criminals. But during the last three decades, there has been increasing sensitivity to the needs and rights of crime victims on the part of the criminal justice system. For more information please see the LAPD website.

Please remember that residents should not rely on the Association to protect them from loss or harm. Residents should take every precaution to secure themselves and their personal belongings such as but not limited to, carrying insurance against loss, keeping doors (cars and units) locked, refusing to open any doors to strangers, asking workmen for identification and reporting anyone who is acting in a suspicious manner.

In the past it has been the practice of Luma to eblast criminal activity reported to the Association, however, after conducting a thorough review of crime prevention efforts legal counsel has advised against this practice. The Association suggests you reach out to local law enforcement to obtain information regarding criminal activities in your neighborhood and the City in general. You should never rely on the Association or other agencies that do not specialize in law enforcement.

Thank you.

MyFig Project Update

Dear Luma Residents,

Below is a message from the South Park BID regarding a change in the MYFIG project work site. Beginning on 3/17 it will be moving to the south side (LUMA) of 11th Street.

Happy Friday, everyone!

MyFIG has officially moved to the south-side of 11th St (Luma’s side). This south side work is expected to be less invasive than what occurred on the north side.

MyFIG and SPBID have been working closely the past few weeks to prep for this switch. At SPBID’s request for MyFIG to proactively prepare for the upcoming work, the project has surveyed the south side and has taken the existing properties into account beforehand. Additionally, specific stakeholder impacts have been acknowledged and are to be taken into account during construction.

Started on 3/17
11th St., between Main and Flower, will experience traffic delays and loud work. This work is scheduled for 8A – 3P. Expect rolling ~10-15 minute traffic delays throughout the day for westbound traffic.

MyFIG will be restriping the north side of 11th, in preparation to flip the flow of traffic. Restriping involves a grinder machine that is louder than normal. Please let residents know about this work.

When the restriping is finished, the cement krail will be moved to the south side of 11th. The krail relocation is moving east to west along 11th. The south side will be the new construction zone and cars will now drive on the north side of 11th.

ALLEY ACCESS DURING SOUTH SIDE WORK
All alleys, between Hill and Flower, will be accessible during the south side work. During the north side work, concrete krail was dropped and local access was cut off to 11th St. SPBID surveyed all alleys along the south side and MyFIG has approved to keep those alleys accessible throughout construction. This means krail will not be dropped or block the alleys.

However, there will be times where temporary access is closed due to specific work. When that happens, you will be notified in advance and need to reroute access for driveways, garages, etc.

OVERALL PROGRESS UPDATES ON MYFIG – NORTH SIDE
• Expanded sidewalks were installed
• Additional lighting was added
• New landscaping is in place
• ADA-compliant ramps were installed
• New driveways at each alley were installed

Please feel free to contact MyFIG directly:

President Trump's Scheduled Visit to LA

Dear Luma Residents,

President Trump is scheduled to visit Southern California on Tuesday March 13th and Wednesday the 14th.

The trip begins in San Diego tomorrow morning and will be followed by a fundraiser in the Los Angeles/Beverly Hills area in the evening. It is further reported that the President is expected to be in the area on Wednesday, so we can assume he will be spending the night locally in the Los Angeles area. The locations of the events and where the President will be staying have not been disclosed as is often the case with any presidential visit.

As of this weekend, we are not aware of any permits for planned protests but we are aware of one group advertising on Facebook that has approximately 1000 people stating they would attend a protest to take place in the West Los Angeles/Beverly Hills area from 4pm -8pm on Tuesday. No specific location was yet given.

There are few other details surrounding the trip available , but as with any presidential visit, we can expect significant traffic issues as the motorcade travels through the area. In addition we can expect and should be prepared for additional protests over the next couple of days.

We recommend that you watch for additional updates on the local news channels and social media. Information regarding presidential travel is very limited, but often, the morning of the visit additional information is released to the news media with traffic alerts and areas to avoid.

Sincerely,
Luma Homeowners Association
