Neighborhood Council Initiative Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the Neighborhood Council Initiative (“Blitz”)?
Mayor Garcetti and Bureau of Street Services collaborating to meet the Mayor’s goal of getting back to basics

How is this program getting back to basics?
A pothole truck is assigned to work in a different Neighborhood Council (NC) every day.
Each Neighborhood Council receives personalized small asphalt repair service for a day

How does this program work?
The Bureau’s Neighborhood Council Initiative Representative
contacts an NC Executive Board via e-mail.
The e-mail informs the NC Exec Board of the date the work is going to take place, the format to use when submitting locations for inspection, and the last day to submit locations for inspection. The locations submitted are inspected and repairs are scheduled.

Who determines which locations will be addressed?
The NC Exec Board forwards its priorities to Street Services NC Initiative Representative. The Bureau’s Representative determines which locations
can be completed with the resources and time allocated. The NC is informed which locations will be repaired.

What resources are allocated for this program?
1 small asphalt repair (SAR) truck, consisting of 2 workers and asphalt, is dispatched to repair neighborhood selected locations.

What type of repairs can be addressed with this program?
Small asphalt repairs include:

  • Potholes and pop outs
  • Skin patching of eroded or cracked areas
  • Some sidewalk and curb repairs
  • Some repairs on concrete streets

What happens in case of inclement weather?
In case of rain or inclement weather the neighborhood council is informed
of cancellation and the work is rescheduled.

Which neighborhood councils are involved?
Every NC is invited to participate in the program by submitting locations
important to their neighborhood when they receive the notice from the Bureau’s Representative. Requests for the Neighborhood Council Initiative are submitted
through the Neighborhood Council office Request form

Only 15 addresses will be inspected per neighborhood council
Prioritize the locations by order of importance to your neighborhood
Street Services will address as many locations as possible with the resources allocated for the program (1 pothole truck) If locations submitted do not qualify for the program you will be informed of the reason.
Suggestions:
Select high visibility locations:
Parks, schools, churches, places people congregate
If possible, select locations which reduce travel time; less travel time for the truck equals higher production in the neighborhood
If you choose, we may be able to complete a slightly larger project in your neighborhood, this will be determined at the time of inspection
If excessive locations are submitted you may choose to use lottery process
Criteria used by some neighborhood councils
Crosswalks
Intersections
High volume alleys

Submit locations by date requested ( 7/26/2016 )
Allows inspection time and possible coordination with other programs or Departments, when applicable
