The annual Hazardous Waste Roundup is happening again on June 24, 2017, 9am-3pm, in the parking lot in front of the Wende Museum in Culver City.
If you haven’t attended one of these before, it’s awesome to have one of these in Culver City. But it’s also a bit surreal: from the paddle tennis court parking lot entrance by Elenda St. you enter the hazmat corridor that’s set up between there and the end of the Wende Museum. You’re surrounded by folks in hazmat suits and asked to not leave your vehicle. You pop open your trunk, thinking that they’ll somehow pluck E.T. from the depths of your spare tire. Instead each station grabs the appropriate items, e.g. paints, batteries, e-waste, etc. and then at the end you fill out a survey. 5 minutes later you’re out of there thinking about what else you could have brought with you from your garage!
The flyer has all the details for your next trip.
Minutes from the CCNA General Meeting of 04/25/2017
NextGEN is the Federal Aviation Administration’s program to upgrade the nation’s air traffic control systems from the traditional radar+radio communication to modern satellite based GPS with automated data exchange. The net effect is that airplanes will be able to take more direct routes to their destinations and have less need to stack up, reducing effects like the Downey Rush. Because airplanes can now take more direct routes to LAX than via Downey, areas around LAX will see an increase of low altitude flights.
Many neighbors have reported having had issues with mail delivery, e.g. getting a neighbor’s mail, finding your mail at the neighbors, etc. In effort to collect more data, we have set up a Google form to log mail delivery incidents. You can get to this form and the corresponding tracking sheet via the links below, or from the corresponding issues/subcommittees page.
- Here is the FORM to log your issues
- Here is the TRACKING SHEET that lists all the responses
Once we have a critical mass of issues reported we will take the list and communicate with the Culver City Postmaster.
