From City Manager John Nachbar’s Dec. 7th, 2012 bi-weekly email:
- Cranks/Tellefson Hillside Slide Repair Project Reimbursement – In late November, the City received a payment of $425,000 from the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal-EMA) for the Cranks/Tellefson hillside slide repair project. Additional money is expected from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), with the total of both sources expected to be approximately $1.6 million. Combined with payments that the City has already received, this brings the total assistance received by Culver City for the 2005 disaster to over $2.5 million.
- West Los Angeles College (WLAC) Demolition Bash- WLAC has informed the City that it will begin demolition of 43-year-old “temporary” buildings during the Winter break as part of its on-going campus transformation funded by voter- approved construction bonds. To mark the occasion, WLAC is planning to hold a Demolition Bash at 2:30 pm on Tuesday, December 11th. All are invited to participate in the farewell photo. Be sure to wear your favorite 1970’s and/or construction worker apparel. Get your photo taken swinging a ceremonial sledge hammer then graffiti your thank you message to these well-used buildings on one of the walls. Following the event, guests are invited to explore the dramatically renewed campus with three new LEED certified, multi-story buildings and lovely new walkways and courtyards. The new Café West is open for lunch and the adjacent expansive lawn behind the Student Services Building offers a great view of Culver City. Parking will be free in Lot #5, which is located off of Freshman Drive.
