      -THE ARROYO SECO NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL-


      DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOOD EMPOWERMENT (DONE)
      HOSTS LEADERSHIP DIALOGUE BETWEEN
      ARROYO SECO NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL AND
      GREATER CYPRESS PARK NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL IN
      CONTINUING EFFORT TO RESOLVE NORTHEAST LOS ANGELES ISSUES

      Key Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood council issues, including
      stakeholder definition, city funding and the composition of
      representative boards were addressed in a July 30 meeting between
      leadership groups representing the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council
      (ASNC) and the Greater Cypress Park Neighborhood Council hosted by
      the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE.)

      In the interest of facilitating an open and effective dialogue and
      per the agreement of all parties, the meeting was not open to the
      public. Each group was represented by five participants and seven
      observers selected by the councils' respective organizing committees.
      Issues addressed during the meeting have been the focus of
      disagreement between the two groups during past months. The Human
      Resources Department of the City of Los Angeles provided facilitation
      of the meeting.

      The neighborhood councils, DONE and the Human Resources Department
      agreed to meet again for further dialogue on August 15, in another
      private session to be facilitated by the City. The agenda for the
      August 15 meeting will be broadened to include boundary issues and
      the possible organization of a plebiscite to determine the will of
      Northeast Los Angeles stakeholders.

      The Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council has applied to represent the
      stakeholders of the six communities of Cypress Park, Mt. Washington,
      Sycamore Grove, Montecito Heights, Monterey Hills, and Hermon under
      the City Charter empowering neighborhoods. At a May 28 certification
      hearing before the City of Los Angeles' Board of Neighborhood
      Commissioners, the ASNC leadership agreed to continue its application
      and pursue further dialogue with the GCPNC leadership, with the hope
      that there could be a unified neighborhood council application that
      involves all parties.

      Greater Cypress Park Neighborhood Council submitted a Letter of
      Intent in January to represent the stakeholders of Cypress Park and
      portions of Mt. Washington.

      The Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council has the endorsement and active
      participation
      of the Friends of Cypress Park Community Improvement Association,
      Mt. Washington Association, Mt. Washington Homeowners Alliance,
      Montecito Heights Improvement Association, Monterey Hills Federation,
      Hermon Neighborhood Association, the Sycamore Terrace Homeowners
      Association and over four thousand individual community stakeholders.
