Presentation of Studio City Cares Award:  “Excellence in Community Service” to Luis Oliart

The SCRA is honoring Luis Oliart for his continued service to the community.  The award will be presented by Councilmember Paul Krekorian.  Luis Oliart has been a fixture in local advocacy for the past 20 years. His activism lead Luis to identify areas in Studio City that had the most homeless people. Luis is Chair of the Studio City Neighborhood Council Homelessness Committee and each week, through hands-on critical evaluation, he was able to recognize inefficiencies in our local systems. His field reports to the Homelessness Committee recommended helpful legislation based on the symptoms and conditions of our Studio City homeless population. These reports were also sent to Hope in the Valley, Noho Home Alliance, LAHSA, and a variety of service providers.

Guest Speaker:  Councilmember Paul Kerkorian.  Lead officer Shawn Smith will give us a Studio City update

The SCRA Community meeting will occur right in the middle of the City’s 2023 Budget discussions. Councilmember Krekorian, as chair of the budget committee, will be able to take suggestions from you on items you would like to see included in the city budget.  

With the recent redistricting, Studio City is now represented by two council members.  Councilmember Krekorian represents roughly North and East Studio City including the Universal Redline Station. The councilmember will be able to speak to Metro’s plans at this site which will affect all of Studio City.

 

The SCRA Community Meeting will be held in person at Bridges Academy on May 10th.  Doors open at 7:00 PM, and the meeting will start at 7:15 PM and end at 8:45 PM. There will be a live zoom feed for members unable to attend in person.

The meeting is in the GYM with plenty of room to spread out and social distance, masks are mandatory and proof of vaccination will be checked at the door.
