DRRA Fall General Meeting — Housing Affordability and Homelessness in Del Rey

The Del Rey Residents Association thanks Councilmember Mike Bonin and Donald Holt, Associate Director of Homeless Services with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), for speaking at our Fall General Meeting on Housing Affordability and Homelessness in Del Rey.

Councilmember Bonin began his remarks by thanking Del Rey for “saying yes” to projects that provide housing for formerly homeless individuals, and voting in favor of Measure HHH, the recently approved $1.2 billion bond measure to build 10,000 units of housing for the homeless.

Both Councilmember Bonin and Mr. Holt reminded attendees that law enforcement measures alone cannot solve the problems of homeless encampments and RV dwellers because homelessness is not a crime.

However, dumping waste, drinking in public, littering, excessive noise or violation of parking laws are enforceable.  Residents are encouraged to download the MyLA 311 app, which makes it easy report these violations.

Mr. Holt informed attendees of LAHSA’s 72 outreach teams for Los Angeles County. Teams of two outreach workers visit the homeless, work to build trust and offer services.  LAHSA also has HOPE teams comprised of 10 LAPD officers and four members of LAHSA’s Emergency Response Team.

Jenny Arevalo is LAHSA’s representative for this area.  Her email is

DRRA thanks the Westside Neighborhood School for providing us with the meeting locale.  We also thank the LAPD Pacific Division’s Explorer Cadets for providing the color guard and performing the flag ceremony.

Finally, thank you to all concerned citizens who attended the event and voiced opinions and concerns on this pressing issue.

DRRA Honors Local Scholars

For the sixteenth straight year the Del Rey Residents Association proudly honored the top students at Marina del Rey Middle School.  Current president Elizabeth Pollock and former president Lillian Jenkins presented the honorees with gifts cards in recognition of their accomplishments.





From left to right: Ayanna Thomas; Ruby Macias; Sabrina Maximo; Osric Holt; Ava Easter.  Regrettably Kenya Hall, the 8th Grade Class Representative, did not make it into the picture.

There were so many outstanding students this year that the Marina del Rey Boosters Club  joined us in purchasing gift cards.  There were also twenty — count ’em, 20! — students who had perfect attendance throughout their time at the school.

DRRA’s recognition of the school’s outstanding students dates back to Lillian’s tenure as president.  All three of her children attended Marina Del Rey Middle School, and her son was in the first graduating class.  When she retired as DRRA’s president, she asked the association to recognize the school’s stellar students in lieu of any personal honor, thus beginning a tradition that we proudly continue.

Congratulations to all the honorees and their proud families.


Fall General Meeting, 2015




A standing-room-only crowd of over 120 concerned citizens attended DRRA’s Fall General Meeting on the evening of November 5th to ask (and hopefully answer) the question, “El Niño – Are You Ready?”

DRRA extends a special thank you to the panel of flood control experts who informed attendees on how various agencies are preparing for the predicted storms.   The panelists were: Joseph Goldstein with the Army Corps of Engineers; Chris Mann, the CalTrans Maintenance Supervisor for Del Rey; Terri Grant with the Los Angeles County Watershed Management Division; Chi Ming Gong, City of Los Angeles Street Maintenance Division; and Chuck Turhollow, City of Los Angeles Department of Sanitation, Storm Manager for Del Rey. In addition to prepared remarks, they answered questions from the audience.

The combined efforts of these federal, state, county and city agencies are working to ensure that Ballona Creek, Centinela Creek and the Sepulveda Channel are operating at peak efficiency, but it isn’t just the flood control channels that are being readied for the expected storms.  Storm drains and spill ways are also being cleared in anticipation of our first wet winter in years.

In addition to the panelists, DRRA also thanks the following for their contributions to this well-attended event: the Westside Neighborhood School for once again serving as our hosts; the LAPD Cadet Color Guard, Officer Javier Ramirez presiding; Chuy Orozco, Councilmember Mike Bonin’s Senior Field Deputy; and LAPD Senior Lead Officer Hector Aceves.

Finally, thanks to all who attended and brought their questions and concerns. 

2015 Fall General Meeting

El Niño:  Are You Ready?

Past floods have shaped the design of Del Rey’s three waterways – Ballona Creek, Centinela Creek and the Sepulveda Channel.   With heavy rains predicted for this winter, everyone in Del Rey is invited to attend the Del Rey Residents Association’s Fall General Meeting with its timely topic: El Niño:  Are You Ready?

Flood control experts from the United States Army Corps of Engineers, Caltrans, the Los Angeles County Watershed Management Division, and the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Street Services will tell us what is being done to prevent flooding in Del Rey and what residents can do to prepare for heavy rains.  Information from the City’s Stormwater Program will be available as well.

The meeting will be on Thursday, November 5, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. at Westside Neighborhood School, 5400 Beethoven Street (off of Jefferson Boulevard), Los Angeles, CA  90066.

Please come with your concerns and questions.
