Multiple questions will be asked of all four candidates in this forum and each candidate will have a fixed amount of time to respond. We will be asking questions relating to issues that are important to residents of Culver City and Culver Crest, including issues on oil fields, West Los Angeles College, Traffic, Development, Schools, City Government, LAX, and other issues relating to the quality of life here in Culver Crest.
If you have a question for the candidates, either leave a reply to this post or send your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also take into consideration questions submitted at the start of the event.
Culver Crest neighbor Barbara Markoe is hosting an update on NextGen this Sunday February 11, 2018 at 3pm along with Dani Zandel.

“On Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer and Vixen!” And I bet you know the rest. Santa’s Sleigh is once more making its way through Culver City this December to put kids and adults alike in the holiday spirit.
For Culver Crest, Thursday, December 14th from 5pm to 9pm is that magic time.
Residential streets in the area bounded by Overland Avenue as the West border, Culver Crest as the East border, Northgate Avenue as the North border, and South Drive as the South border will be visited. And yes, Santa will be making occasional stops.
Should you happen to miss Santa’s sojourn through our streets, you can always visit the Sleigh in front of City Hall, where it becomes stationary as of December 21st.
It’s the holiday season, and along with all the cards, party invitations, and holiday errands to run, there’s also the not-always-fun burden of holiday travel. For many of us, this can mean days – or even weeks – away from home.
A home unoccupied for long periods of time can become a target for thieves. With that in mind, Culver City Police Department Lieutenant Troy Dunlap has written up some handy tips to help everyone on the Crest make sure your home doesn’t become the scene of a holiday heist. Take a look at the PDF below for these helpful tips.
To participate in the conversation about these tips, jump over to the comments section of Lt. Dunlap’s original post of these tips on NextDoor.com by clicking here.

As part of Golden State Water Company’s Ranch Road Area Main Replacement Project, the project’s final resurfacing will be completed on many streets on the Crest next week.
This grinding of the streets is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, October 18 and the paving on Thursday, October 19. No Parking signs will be posted throughout the paving projects. Working hours are between 8am – 5pm. Some streets will be closed to vehicular traffic (Youngsworth, Cranks, Linda Way) during the grinding and paving.

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.
