\The End of Single Family Homes in Los Angeles
You read that correctly. Senator Scott Wiener from San Francisco has introduced a bill that would allow developers to build 8-story apartment buildings on any residential property with no parking and no limit on density. The only requirement is that the property is within ¼ mile of a major bus line. The city of Los Angeles could do nothing to prevent the building from being constructed. If you live in a single family home or a low rise apartment building, would you want an 8-story building with 100 apartments and no parking next door? The Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council will have a panel discussion on this bill and what you can do to stop it. Monday April 9 6:30 PM at Sherman Oaks Elementary School Auditorium, 14780 Dickens St.

Free Pizza, Pizza!
Little Caesars promised Free Pizza if a #16 seed beat a #1seed. It sounded like a safe bet because it’s never happened. That is until now. #16 seed UMBC (that’s the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, for everyone who still has no idea) crushed top-seeded Virginia 74-54. It was the maddest thing that’s ever happened during March Madness, and Little Caesars is following through on its promise. On April 2, the day of the NCAA championship game, Little Caesars is giving away lunch combos (normally $5) with a four-slice pepperoni pizza and a Pepsi beverage. The promotion is only valid between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. or until supplies last that Monday, and your order must be placed by 1 p.m. If you’re still in line at 1 p.m., there’s no free lunch. Also, this is limited to one combo per family. Little Caesars is located at 14901 Vanowen at the corner of Kester.

Lotus & Light, 345 N Pass Ave Burbank. (818) 562-7777.
Chiang Mai Urban Thai Kitchen in Valley Village made the list! It’s said to be the best place to eat Khao Soi (Thai coconut curry soup). You can order it topped with crispy pork, white meat chicken, drumstick, braised beef, sausage, shrimp, tofu, or vegetables. But that’s not all. You can order spicy beef salad, pork curry, purple sticky rice, and many more Thai delights. Chiang Mai Urban Thai Kitchen, 12510 Burbank Blvd, Valley Village, (818) 763-9877.

Preventing Home Burglaries
There have been a string of home burglaries starting in North Hollywood and working west through Studio City and Sherman Oaks. These are done by professionals. If you see a burglary in progress, do not confront the burglars – Call 911 immediately. The police have already made arrests, but there are more active thieves working the area. To foil a potential burglary before it happens:
1) Homeowners should make an attempt to give the impression someone is home at all times, which would include leaving a car in driveway, leaving lights on in and around the home at night.
2) Noise inside the house (leave TV or radio on) to give the impression someone is home.
3) Use one of the commercial security services that have become popular, inexpensive and easy to use, including but not limited to video recording devices.
4) Use pets such as a dog for property protection and deterrence. Don’t leave doggie doors open when you are not at home.
5) Most importantly, make contact with your neighbors and look out for each other’s homes.
6) Be suspicious of unusual vehicles or persons slowly traversing through the neighborhood or strange cars parked on a quiet street with someone sitting inside.
7) ALWAYS and IMMEDIATELY contact law enforcement when you believe you are seeing something suspicious in the neighborhood.
8) Social media and NextDoor are important, but information should not just be posted without also sharing the information with the police.

If you want to repair the sidewalk now, the city will share the cost and give you a rebate of up to $10,000 for residential & commercial properties. Get the info at http://www.sidewalks.lacity.org/ click on "rebates." Be sure to do this before you start work to get the details and qualify to get your rebate.

Potholes Need Filling?
Thanks to all who emailed to give us their favorite potholes. The Department of Street Services worked on them at the end of February. Our next pothole filling event will be in mid-August. We are collecting locations that need work now. In order to get right spots fixed we need the address in front of the pothole, for intersections – the names of both streets, for alleys – the names of all 4 surrounding streets. Send us the locations – we'll get the holes fixed. Go to our website www.shermanoaksnc.org; click on “Contact us”; and type in the information.

Conserve Water – Get Paid
Last year may have brought plenty of rain to our city, but make no mistake — saving water is as important as ever. That’s why LADWP will now offer even higher rebates to people who want to conserve water by removing turf from their yards. Take advantage of the fall planting season, the turf removal rebate will increase for the next three months from $1.75 to $2 per square foot up to 1,500 square feet — as much as $375 more per customer.
