Echo Park Public Safety Issues and Concerns – Spring 2015

With spring upon us and the Dodger season starting shortly, this forum will be an opportunity to discuss your issues and concerns regarding public safety as we move into the the middle of the year.

Echo Park Town Hall Thursday

The EPIA is hosting our monthly Echo Park Town Hall Forum on Thursday, March 5 at 7:00 pm. Join us if you have specific or general concerns regarding criminal activities, development issues, and any quality of life issues.

During our town hall meetings, we discuss issues affecting our neighborhood, including the Echo Park Lake rehab project, new Echo Park businesses, land use issues, amongst others. Get out and volunteer, meet neighbors, and let EPIA help with your neighborhood projects like community clean ups, tree plantings, beautification projects, city related issues, and more.

We have invited representatives from Council Districts 1 and 13, Senior Lead Officers from Northeast and Rampart LAPD Divisions, Select Patrol, and others to discuss your concerns and provide you with helpful information.

All are welcome! Bring yourself, your neighbors, your input, and join us at Barlow Hospital, located at 2000 Stadium Way, in Williams Hall.

Exploring the Homeless Issue in Echo Park

Please join us at our EPIA January Town Hall meeting where we will have representatives from LAHSA, LAPD, City Attorney’s Neighborhood Prosecutor, and Council Districts 1 and 13 discuss the issues around the causes and the responses to the homeless that find themselves in our community.

The primary purpose of this forum is to educate regarding the issues, so that members of the community can understand what resources are available, and how the processes work.
