In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the Office of the City Attorney recently issued guidelines allowing Neighborhood Councils to begin meeting virtually. Therefore the Mar Vista Community Council (MVCC) will resume meeting beginning at 7:00 p.m. on April 14th and the Executive and Finance Committee will resume meeting beginning at 7:00 p.m. on May 4th. After that, both bodies will resume their regular meeting cycles. For the duration of the crisis, meetings will be held online using Zoom. For those who are unfamiliar with the platform, instructions may be accessed here. The meeting details will appear on each meeting agenda and on the MVCC calendar. Members of the public will be able to join and observe the meetings as well as to offer comment, as appropriate.
For the time being, all MVCC committee meetings - other than those listed above - will continue to be suspended. Those meetings will resume when a process to conduct them is developed or when the COVID-19-related restrictions are lifted, whichever is earlier.Read More »
To assist residential renters who have been economically impacted by the Coronavirus, the Mayor and the City Council have adopted tenant protections on evictions and rent increases in the City of Los Angeles.
On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. On March 15th, Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti issued an Emergency Order which implemented measures to protect the public and contain the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. Additionally, on March 23rd the Mayor issued a temporary moratorium on evictions for non-payment of rent for tenants who are unable to pay rent due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On March 30th, the Mayor halted rent increases on occupied rental units that are subject to the City’s Rent Stabilization Ordinance (RSO). Effective March 31, 2020, Ordinance No. 20-0147-S19 expands protections for tenants during the local emergency in response to COVID-19. Together, these actions are designed to prevent unnecessary housing displacement and to prevent housed individuals from falling into homelessness.Read More »
