On Tuesday, April 14, Councilmembers Jose Huizar (CD14), Jan Perry (CD9) and Ed Reyes (CD1) will be in attendance for a special meeting of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council's Board of Directors. The three each represent a portion of Downtown, and the neighborhood council has scheduled time before the meeting for Downtowners to come by and say hello to their elected officials.

Downtown's triple representation is the result of some creatively drawn council district boundaries.

Huizar's 14th District includes Boyle Heights and even Mt. Washington, but also a large chunk of Central City East and most of the Broadway corridor. That includes the block on each side of Broadway, so those living on the west side of Spring can be in Huizar's district where those on the east are not.

Reyes' 1st District covers the area west of the 110 freeway, and north of the 101, encompassing City West and Chinatown.

The rest of Downtown falls into Perry's 9th District, which also includes a large chunk of South L.A..

Tuesday's meet-and-greet kicks off at 6pm at the Los Angeles Theatre, 615 S. Broadway Tower Theatre, 802 S. Broadway. The board meeting itself is slated to begin at 6:30pm, with the councilmembers getting a chance to share some remarks before the council moves into its regular agenda.
