On Tuesday, the LA City Council will take up a motion by Councilman Alarcon that calls for beginning the application process to designate the La Tuna Detention Center a Historic Cultural Monument. Due to Councilman Englander‘s recent misunderstanding of the motion, the City Council Planning & Land Use Management Committee split their vote and were unable to make any recommendation on this proposal.
We think the good folks of the Foothills Communities understand the motion very well, and are able and willing to make a recommendation to the full LA City Council.
Below is a list of the City Council members that need to hear from you, and they need to hear from you by Monday evening.! Simply write something like… ”We support and urge you to vote to approve Councilman Alarcon’s motion to prepare an application to include the Tuna Canyon Detention Station Site in the City’s list of Historic-Cultural Monuments”.
That’s all you have to do.
Here is the list of Councilmembers that need to hear from you;
