Today is Tuesday, September 6, and after its summer recess and the Labor Day holiday, City Council returns to work. It tackles a necessity determination for a gourmet market at 6th and Main, the expansion of the Historic Downtown BID and bike sharing at El Pueblo.

TUESDAY: City Council returns, as does the Jobs and Business Development committee.

In CF 11-1266, Council is asked to vote on a determination of public convenience or necessity for Fuse Restaurant and Gourmet Shop, a restaurant and market under construction on the corner of 6th and Main.

The Historic Downtown BID will take a second attempt at adding four properties under CF 10-1083, at Jobs & Business Development committee. The district is looking to add four properties, including the P.E. Lofts, that sit in a no-man's land between the Historic Downtown BID and the Fashion District BID. An attempt earlier this year failed to reach approval, at least in part because the materials sent out by the city didn't make clear to property owners what they were voting to do.

WEDNESDAY: Council meets, as do three committees.

The creation of a bike sharing facility at El Pueblo is the subject of CF 09-1403, a motion at Arts, Parks, Health and Aging committee. The Huizar motion from 2009 instructs the El Pueblo GM to find space for a rent-a-bike facility. It has been continued twice, on July 15, 2009, and March 23, 2010.

Council will meet in closed session to get an update on the lawsuit between the Latino Museum and the Latino Theatre Company, the co-tenants of the Los Angeles Theatre Center on Spring Street.

A motion to rename Cherry Street to L.A. Live Way between Bond and Olympic goes to Public Works committee as CF 10-0255. All parties involved better hope they say yes: the signs were changed in October of 2010.

FRIDAY: The City Council's Redistricting Commission will hold its first meeting at 9am inside LAPD's COMPSTAT room. Commissioners will be sworn in and introduced to the timeline and scope of their task.
