    Someone has started padlocking gates to the harbor city Greenway. The gates are remaining padlocked long after the published opening time of 7 AM. Please look into what has changed and ensure that the gates to the Greenway are kept open during published business hours

    I saw your email and forwarded it to the President. He will look into it.

  • KristinaSmith

    I have been told regarding that fracking issue that you should contact Brea Canon directly, Rey Javier – VP, located on Normandie Ave. Phone (310) 326-4002. I have also been told that Brea does not “Frack” and the closest facility is in the Long Beach Harbor for this area.

    Look further on my post you’ll see that they’ve been fracking here and if you look at my pictures on my Facebook page you’ll see pictures of them fracking they are doing it here and it’s a big sinkhole and they don’t want people to know that’s why they took my life that’s why they arrested me for something I didn’t do that’s why my son is paralyzed and police can’t be this but they are. If you know any environmentalist or fracking activist send them to me it’s for everyone to see what’s going on there fracking all up and down the coast and millions of trees are dying true I can’t believe it and this is what our government doesn’t want people to know they’re actually raping our Earth these people doing it . Getting so rich that there taking over government I have much hope with trumps send him send me his officials I should be arrested if what I say is not true 100% I know 100% it is and I just want my story to get out for people to know it’s not just about me and my son it’s about everyone it’s about our country and who’s running it

    They put up no trespassing signs in Wilmington wildlife access. Since police arranged defrauding my bank account120,000.00 recognized the fraud paid me back then reversed the decision because police wouldn’t give me a report in the fine print of Bank of America please don’t have to honor the fraud and took 5 Social Security inside VA Pension checks in Vancouver selfies which caused me to go homeless I’ve been living in that wildlife area and they’re trying to hide what they’ve been doing there. They have to leave Greenway Park open it’s open to the public and the front entrance has always been open and the one on PCH did you lock the parking lot and the gates into the parking lot

  • Rhonda Thomas

    The home owners of the woods need to know this. The oil comp having the oil right drill or go biolaterly and strip the minerals from the ground . Fracking. They have to disclose this. They are hiding this

    There’s an issue I would like you to address at your council meeting on Jan 11.

    We have a serious issue with homeless on our street which has elevated to a level that threatens our safety and wellbeing. When homeless were evicted from the locked entrance at the Lomita Blvd to the Harbor City Greenway over the last 2-3 weeks, we have experienced severe danger to our property and personal safety including:

    Homeless access and set up camp in the Greenway through damaged / vandalized fencing at the top of Dodge Ave.
    Fencing near the locked 255 St entrance to the Greenway has also been vandalized for homeless to gain entry.
    Personal campsites set up on the gravel lot adjacent to 25420 Dodge Ave invoked hostility from the owner who removed one campsite.
    Homeless woman set fire to a couch that was waiting for bulk item pickup outside of the gravel lot. Passing neighbors put out the fire with water from ice buckets. Residents are uncertain if this act was in retaliation to the above event.
    Vandalism to more than one vehicle parked on Dodge Ave involving damage to the sideview mirror on a vehicle. Detail on damage to other vehicles is unknown.
    Residents observed that homeless set fire to two bushes in the Greenway. Fire Dept claims not to have seen it when they arrived.

    These incidents will only escalate further until you shore up the vulnerable fencing between the top of Dodge Ave and the Greenway.

    We would like you shore up this fencing with something more impenetrable. Until then, it would help for security to police the unathorized entry from Dodge Ave similar to the guard posted on Lomita Blvd, near the locked entrance to the Greenway.

    Please get back to me with your plan to restore order and safety to residents of Dodge Ave.

    I have been living on Frampton Ave. between Anaheim St. and
    Pacific Coast Highway for approximately 2 years. Within the past 6 months or
    so, the homelessness issue has extremely exacerbated. Specifically, in the areas
    from Belle Porte Ave; around 259th (which has become a dumping
    ground for people’s personal trash); around to Frampton Ave. leading back to
    PCH. I am personally disgusted at what I have been seeing in these areas. For
    example, there have been several homeless people living on Belle Porte Ave.
    (just south of PCH) who have decided that all of the trash in their vehicles
    should be thrown all over the sidewalks and streets. Additionally, a plethora of
    people living at A-1 trailer park, have decided that Frampton Ave. is a place
    to do major automobile repairs—dumping their used automotive parts and
    hazardous materials on the ground such as: oil, antifreeze, gasoline, etc. How
    long must our community wait before city officials resolve this ongoing issue
    of homelessness taking over our neighborhoods; the small street of 259th
    between Belle Porte Ave and Frampton Ave. being used as a refuge. Our community
    pays a high cost for rents and mortgages in the Harbor City area; should not
    have to sit back and watch certain individuals (i.e., the homeless and other
    citizens) destroy our neighborhoods by irresponsibly dumping trash and not
    being civilized.

    Is there nothing that can be done about the growing homelessness problem along Lomita Blvd? I cannot allow my daughter to take the bus to school anymore because there is no sidewalk to wait and it’s not safe with all those tents. I continually see naked people standing outside the tents … surely there is a safer place these people can move into.

  • Ken Bringas

    I’ve been a pastor in Harbor City for 14 years, and our church, New Life Foursquare (Vermont and 255th) has been down the street from an age-old homeless encampment, the same one that several months ago relocated itself onto Lomita Blvd. In my own experience with that community, it seems that about 70% of them are chronically homeless, about 30% are waiting for section 8 housing. People from that camp have come and gone. I know some of them by name, and we as a church have helped that community in different ways throughout the years.

    However, I want to express a concern that I’ve not had in the 14 years I’ve been here. Ever
    since the new homes on McCoy were put in, I’ve noticed a significant rise in the boldness of that homeless camp to vandalize, steal, do and deal drugs, and loiter, and simply put the neighborhood on edge. Earlier this year, our pastoral team went to actually talk with the “leaders” of that camp and we listened to them and tried to reason with them about all the loitering, littering, stealing water, and vandalizing. Well, as expected, that didn’t work much. And now, I’m actually concerned that the folks that make up that camp of late have been more belligerent and prone to aggression. Even more concerning was that every time we have callepd the LAPD, we have had no response. In fact, they even told us that they refuse to go into that camp because of the danger it poses to officers. Last night, we held our annual Harvest Festival in our parking lot. We asked the police if they could patrol the area just to be a presence, but no one showed up. I’m not making any assumptions about why the police are avoiding our neighborhood, but it is puzzling to say the least, and it makes us feel as if we are on our own. Please raise the concern about THIS particular camp which is located on the undeveloped part of McCoy street between Lomita and 255th. It is a danger to that neighborhood and something needs to be done to address the issue.

    My name is Vanessa Bughaw and I’m a good friend of Christie Valdez who was recently struck by a vehicle on the crosswalk by Lomita Blvd and Belle Porte Ave in Harbor City. On March 2nd, 2020, Christie was on her way to the park with her dog when she was hit by a van that left her with severe injuries. She sustained injuries that will take several months to recover from. This incident has turned her world upside down. I’m writing to make a proposition to the city to help prevent an incident like this to happen again.

    I believe this all could’ve been prevented if there were some type of crosswalk light that’ll help signify drivers that there’s a pedestrian. I’ve driven pass this crosswalk several times, have seen people cross it, and seen many drivers not take the necessary precaution to allow pedestrians to cross safely. This crosswalk is right by Harbor City park where lots of families and especially kids go to everyday. Now that there’s a skate park, it raises more of a concern for the children walking to that park.

    I’ve put together a petition that I just put out today on and I’m getting amazing support from locals. In my petition, there are testimonials of people’s personal experiences.

    Here’s a link to my petition:

    I would love to talk to someone who can help me get this funded for Harbor city. Adding a crosswalk light can make all the difference to the people who cross it regularly. It would mean the world to me and my friend if I can make this happen. I’m looking forward to hearing from someone soon.

  • KristinaSmith

    This is the same information that you emailed us and it has been forwarded to the Board President. :)

  • Vanessa Bughaw Duschane

    Wow thank you so much Kristina! I just wanted to put it out on every outlet. I hope you guys had the opportunity to check out my petition. I’m getting amazing support and feedback :)

    thank you, similar problem on 259th street between Frampton and Belle Porte in harbor city, the sidewalks on both sides of the street are covered with illegal dumping and homeless waste, on warm days you can smell the human waste in this area. The handicapped and women with children are forced to walk in the streets where street racers speed through our streets. I spoke to an elderly Asian man walking in the street a month ago, concerned for his safety, he said he and his wife have been bothered by the homeless, “if you walk on the sidewalk, they can grab you and no one can see it”… we are on our own, when I have tried to have the streets cleaned in this area, they pick up a couple large items and leave the rest. Just blocks away millions were spent on “Great streets” but, every month it is a fight to have our residential neighborhood treated as if we mattered.
    I actually came to find somewhere to beg for help with the street racing issue… vehicle so loud the set off car alarms day and night, moving at incredibly high speeds, loud stereos that wake us all night long. Stopped at Western on Palos Verdes last Thursday, six more vehicles crossed the intersection after we had a green light… we don’t have law enforcement anymore do we…

  • Cerise Rowan

    I’ve spent more time than I like to think of filling out the form to request clean up, taking pictures to sent to offices that do not respond or make excuses…
    rep buscianos’ office told me they would help me organize “a community clean up” for four foot high piles of illegal dumping and buckets of human waste” Gabriela Medina was a great help for a while but I understand she is no longer in the same position. I’ve been told “we can’t clean those streets, there are cars parked there” and, “we can’t move that, it belongs to the homeless that live there”. I know of two people who nearly died of typhus, a rat flea disease… between the street racing, the piles of illegal dumping, the reckless driving… and the crime… amazing to me… in 75 AD Rome could keep the streets clean…why anyone would want to live in or do business in LA today, is beyond me…

  • Cerise Rowan

    We had months of fireworks and fire crackers going off during the day and night… all hours… now having more street racing on Frampton Avenue… the vehicles often driving at extremely high speeds, automobiles and motorcycles with mufflers so loud they not only wake us but set off car alarms on the street. Some vehicles play music so loud my windows rattle. This situation has been escalating, these vehicles don’t stop at stop signs, they don’t slow for vehicles leaving or pulling into the residential complexes on the street, limited visibility made more dangerous by vehicles parked on red curbs. Calling the LAPD, 20 minute wait for someone to respond, they say “is the vehicle there now”. And, no point in calling the “lead officer” called him some years ago about vandalism and graffiti on our street he said, “oh, they are only taggers, kids on their way home from school” spray painting 12 feet high on walls… broken car windows… the impression of living in a lawless city, is increasing month by month.
