Service or hypocrisy?
Los Angeles City Council districts are large areas and each includes several communities. Within our communities, we probably tend to feel that our City Councilperson exists to serve only us. While it is true that there may be district-wide issues within each district, it is also true that there are community-wide issues that are unique to each community, and which are not district-wide issues.
Traffic on Solano Avenue in the Solano Canyon community is one such local issue, and it is one that is apparently not being adequately addressed, at least according to many of the residents of Solano Canyon.
This is the area near Solano Canyon. Notice the hulking presence of Dodger Stadium, whose existence has been the subject of several blogs, on both this website and on the Chávez Ravine website. In particular, see the recent blog, A Disaster Waiting To Happen.
This is the location of the Solano Canyon community.
