Today is Monday, May 25, and city government is off today for the Memorial Day holiday. Tomorrow the wheels of government hit the ground running, as the rewritten signage ordinance comes to City Council. Also on the calendar is a residential hotel appeal fee and work on a mixed-income housing ordinance.

TUESDAY: Council's in session, as are three committees.

At Council, items 9 and 14 have to do with the rewritten signage ordinance. Both are under CF 08-2020. Planning and Land Use Management approved the new ordinance this month, but it remains likely that it could be amended before passage. The Los Angeles Times writes about the new ordinance today.

WEDNESDAY: Council's back in session, again with three committees on the calendar.

Housing, Community and Economic Development will hear CF 08-0644, a proposed ordinance change that would create a $988 fee for those appealing their inclusion on the residential hotel list.

Council will hear CF 08-2614, a motion asking the Planning Department to study different options for a mixed-income housing ordinance. The work will be paid for by $400,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds the city will receive from the stimulus package.

Transportation committee will continue the trend of talk about public/private partnerships when it looks at CF 09-0772, a Garcetti motion asking that the city look at ways to make deals that could prevent service cuts due to the Proposition A funding gap. The fund pays for most of the city's transit service, including DASH and Commuter Express.
