Ok.

From your emails, I'm sensing that the timing for this requires more investment on my part.

Here's what I suggest:

1. Each of you submit an "in line"* 20 slide Pecha Kucha based on your charrette results and the subsequent Feasibility plan and schematic (see slides). I propose to take thes to the community so that they are empowered to make more meaningful comments in the outreach. Do not forget the WHY of this project. It is you (our) gift to society. Be bold. Be ethical. (Easy for this group). Think of what "sanitation" means to our species, including those who choose not to live in homes, and who deserve to be served by public infrastructure. These should be what you bring back in to your proposals. 

As LATTC has taken more of an architectural approach in their bridge proposal, they should propose their work as an attraction for future funding —perhaps that extends an armature to Wilshire and the (GRASSII)  system.

Good work is being done by several I have bcc'd, and who I encourage to reach out to Marcela.

You need to send these 20 slides per the below  to ASLA by March 23. Know you can use my slides, and you all have so much student work, we should support each other to each have "home run" presentations.

I suggest you all share your planned presentations with those cc'd on March 20 with this email list, and check for group comments up to noon on March 22. 
We should agree to propose our action in the chain so that when we send our PowerPoints we know what each other are doing.
This is our group "ethos" that we are open and transparent, so we can regain a healthier role among our brother and sister species.

My hope (expectation) is that the four of you are all accepted, and you attract national attention, best of all by NACTO.

No pressure
; )

(Corinne is cc'd)

Signed with realistic anticipation of wonder, and delight,

Deborah

        Hi Deborah,
        Sounds great. CPP is definitely on board for submitting to ASLA. How will this work- do we need to pull together all the presentations into one submission?

        This is great news! We can definitely submit for the ASLA and I look forward to involvement in the upcoming meetings.

        Greetings Ladies, 

         

        As of yesterday, we are now at the top of the list for funding. 

        As Mac Arthur Charette Team leaders your work is now documented within the history of the site.

         

        It has been a long process, and we have a ways to go, but yesterday we passed the most difficult milestone to date in the "W" fundign history of Westlake/MacArthur, the CSMB WASC.

         

        Each of you, as leaders for your students and professional team members, have played essential roles in education and soliciting more meaningful input from the local community.

         

        Future community outreach, and the (pending) meeting minutes will include your charette overviews as exhibits (with the Charrette report). It was an honor to present them at yesterday's meeting.

         

        Your work, and the DESIGN process we are developing will enrich the local talent and design culture of LOS ANGELES and celebrate the character of our City. It will benefit us all, especially our most climate vulnerable species and residents.

         

        Please consider sharing this information with your students, and social media.

        It would be great if you would consider attending the coming meetings and the ROC (see SCW website (Committees> CSMB> Meetings link below) and posting your success--

         

        I would appreciate hearing back if any interest  in meeting the week of 3/23 to discuss the larger community outreach process with your teams. I look forward to our next get together (in June?) to toast a brighter future for our City, and its people.

         

         

        Deborah

         

         

         

         

         

        PS. Wondering if you all might consider submitting your work as a 20 slide short special short presentation for the ASLA (due this month?) it would be wonderful-- I hope that will become a celebration, but regardless, it is a game changing way to take knowledge to the people, and link stucents to careers, and evoke meaningfuld input from communities as they are educated and informed on the potential of landscape architecture.

        Agenda  

        (Summary) 

        SEE AGENDA. the MacArthur Rehabilitation Project was moved to the top of the list, and was discussed with the NOTF and E.O. Vincent projects (see minutes once posted on the SCW.

         

        Many in the audience were our staff, who (other than me) were there to represent NOTF or EOV in the absence of Inglewood's lead.

         

        Supporters of this project will be increasingly important, as the MacArthur Project is now tied for first, at 99.

         

        You are welcome to the upcoming public meetings, to show support. I will be there to clarify, and support.

         

        My understanding is that the 5-year budgets or Strategic Implementation Plans (SIP's) will be advanced by the CSMB WASC in either 2 or 4 weeks to the Regional Oversight Committee (ROC), when the ROC will again confirm SCW priorities, and advance their recommendations to the County BOS for funding approval (June earliest).

         

        I hope that you realize how crucial you are to accomplishing our Mayors' stated goals. The roles of USC/UCLA/CPP and LATTC were also reviewed yesterday, as the Charrette products are a critical link for sustainable "bottom up" regional sustainability.

         

         

         

        Deborah.
