Today is Monday, May 11, and the Council calendar is slowly returning to normalcy after two weeks of Budget & Finance hearings. After a Monday break, Councilmembers return Tuesday for a big day that includes the proposed signage ordinance's second trip to Planning and Land Use and a status report on privatizing city parking resources.

MONDAY: Nothing. Seriously, the calendar's empty.

TUESDAY: Council's in session, three committees are holding meetings and the Budget & Finance committee is wrapping up its budget hearings.

At Council, item 38 is CF 09-1016, an approval of DLANC's lease of office space in the Spring Arts Tower. The neighborhood council has been in the space for the last few months, taking 329 square feet for $350 per month.

Item 39 is CF 09-1019, and has to do with agreements for a Police Memorial to be installed on the east side of the plaza area at the new LAPD Headquarters. The memorial itself will be paid for by the Los Angeles Police Foundation.

Item 43, CF 09-0728-S1, requests that the CAO and CLA give status updates on the city's attempt to get a revenue infusion by privatizing parking resources, potentially including meters and a number of garages.

At Planning and Land Use, CF 09-0723 is a Cultural Heritage Commission report on including 756 S. Spring (the Great Republic Lofts) on the city's Historic-Cultural Monument list.

The day's big ticket item is CF 08-2020, the signage ordinance. It comes to PLUM for a second go-round.

WEDNESDAY: Council's back in session and is joined on the calendar by two committees.

At Housing, Community and Economic Development, CF 09-0756 is a contract update between the CRA and SRO Housing Corp. regarding operation of the James M. Wood Center, Gladys Park and San Julian Park.

At Transportation committee, CF 09-0772 is a Garcetti / Smith motion asking DOT to report on ways it can create public/private partnerships to cover the Prop A deficit. The Late Night Red Line and Late Night DASH holiday pilots are cited as examples.
