Following up on our conversation, here is the map for K2.5 Amendment 1

It is found on the redistricting website in the mapping and data section under Commission Maps and Data:

As you can see the east/west border between CD12 and CD7 is the 405 freeway keeping North Hills West Neighborhood Council intact and in CD12.

Here is a link to the meeting on October 14 At the 4:03:14 point of the meeting they discuss the section of Nordhoff to Lassen/Aqueduct to 405 freeway that was in CD7 on the previous version of Map K2.5.

The line drawer noted that it was an error and the Commission moved back the section in question to back CD12 to without objection. The discussion took approximately 2 min.

Feel free to forward this information to all interested parties. Let me know if you need any additional information for your upcoming meeting.

Please review this Department of Building & Safety Report Relative To Expanding Fire District 1, California Department Of Forestry, Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone, City High Wind Velocity Zone; CF 19-0603 – (Hart)

I’ll refer this to the PLUM Committee can review the information provided and come back with a recommendation for board action. At issue is Fire District 1 vs. existing Fire Safety Codes. By including this item now, I’m affording our board members and stakeholders ample opportunity to review this CF and the Community Impact Statements already submitted.

22. Council File 21-0975 Illegal Street Racing / Reckless Driving Exhibition / Spectator Gathering / Promotion / Facilitation – Discussion and possible motion to approve submission of a CIS in support of Council File motion by our Councilmember John Lee. The proposed ordinance will criminalize the promotion of illegal street races and side shows, making organizing, participating, promoting, and spectating in these dangerous events a misdemeanor. (Brown)

23. Californians for Community Planning Initiative – Shall NHWNC submit an open CIS letting City Council know that if they take a position on the initiative, we’d like them to endorse the effort to put this item on the November 2022 statewide ballot. (This initiative is a response to the passage of SB9 and SB10 which many perceive to be a threat to single family zoning in the State of California.) The initiative would amend the state constitution to prohibit state control over local land use policies. (Brown)
