A ground lease for Little Tokyo's long-sought rec center, settlement talks with a developer and the City budget are on a light set of agendas this week at City Hall.

Today is Monday, May 16, and

MONDAY: Regularly scheduled meetings of the Public Safety and Budget and Finance committees are cancelled.

TUESDAY: Council meets, as do three committees.

The ground lease for Budokan of Los Angeles goes to Council. The center, to be built by the Little Tokyo Service Center, would host volleyball, basketball and martial arts. The land rental is valued at $34,250 per month, but the organization would pay it in the form of community services.

Council will also get a closed-session update on settlement talks between the City of Los Angeles and developer Geoff Palmer in the Superior Court case BC427941.

Over at Planning and Land Use Management is the EIR for Palmer's project at 23rd and Flower that contains 1,051 residential units and 34,000 square feet of retail.

WEDNESDAY: Council returns, as does Personnel committee.

The city's 2011-2012 budget is the big item at Council, where it comes under CF 11-0600.

Personnel committee will discuss CF 11-0261 and CF 11-0261-S1, a pair of motions aimed at centralizing HR functions for the city.
