LA City Council OKs motion tackling 10 Freeway fire’s widespread impact on city

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday, Nov. 14 approved a motion seeking to address the challenges to public safety and economic impacts to local business caused by the fire that damaged and closed...

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday, Nov. 14 approved a motion seeking to address the challenges to public safety and economic impacts to local business caused by the fire that damaged and closed a stretch of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway downtown.

Council members unanimously approved the item after Councilman Kevin de León introduced it during Tuesday’s council meeting pursuant to Rule 23, which allows council members to introduce and pass a motion on the same day.

“The motion introduced today underscores my commitment to address the diverse challenges posed by the devastating freeway fire,” said de León, who represents the 14th District, which encompasses several downtown L.A. neighborhoods.

“Tens of thousands of families and businesses in my district are bearing the brunt of this fire, whether they work near the I-10 freeway or live in the neighboring community of Boyle Heights,” he continued. “It’s necessary that we take a holistic approach to address and monitor the ongoing impacts of public safety, traffic, air quality and economic fallout.”

The motion instructs the Bureau of Street Services to evaluate the existing pavement condition on all streets impacted by detoured freeway traffic to establish a baseline condition, as well as to monitor the streets throughout the closure to seek future reimbursement for repairs from the state or federal government.

Department of Transportation staff will track the impacts on local streets such as travel time, transit usage, and safety. Staff will then provide a report with recommendations on needed physical improvements, signage, local closures or other measures necessary to facilitate effective traffic flow and minimize cut-through traffic in the community.

The Bureau of Street Lighting was instructed to work with the South Coast Air Quality Management District to install additional air quality monitoring devices along the detour routes to document any changes in local air quality and identify rapid mitigation measures to reduce the effects of increased air pollution.

Lastly, the Economic and Workforce Development Department will be tasked will conducting outreach to local business who may have been directly or indirectly affected by the fire and street detours.

Prior to the vote, Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez said the motion was timely.

“So often we look at the immediate impacts to the drivers that use the 10 freeway, and we don’t think about these alternate routes are affecting the neighborhoods, but more importantly, contributing to the accelerated deterioration of the infrastructure in these neighborhoods,” Rodriguez said.

She noted that de León’s motion represents an opportunity to ensure that repairs are comprehensive and that the city is addressing all of the needs of individuals who are impacted by freeway fire.

“Whether it’s the 10 freeway, the East L.A. interchange, or in the northeast San Fernando Valley, we need to really think about the broader implications are of circumstances like this and how vulnerable communities are always bearing the brunt of the impacts associated with mitigation,” Rodriguez said.

San Bernardino Agrees to Build More Housing

SACRAMENTO — Today, Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta announced that, under the threat of litigation, the City of San Bernardino agreed to update their housing plan to meet their state-mandated goals, which include 8,123 additional housing units by 2029.

SACRAMENTO — Today, Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta announced that, under the threat of litigation, the City of San Bernardino agreed to update their housing plan to meet their state-mandated goals, which include 8,123 additional housing units by 2029. California law requires every jurisdiction to adopt a multi-year housing plan and the state is aggressively working to hold communities accountable for local housing needs.

What Governor Newsom said: “Cities that fail to follow the law and plan for their fair share of housing will be held accountable – the status quo will not be tolerated. The state is providing incentives, resources and when necessary, taking legal action to ensure that communities do their part to meet the housing needs of Californians.”

“Our state’s Housing Element Law is in place to ensure that all cities build their fair share of housing. No city is spared from that legal obligation. It is not a choice. It is the law,” said Attorney General Bonta. “I applaud the City of San Bernardino’s city council, and its planning and legal team, for recognizing that public resources should be directed at collaborating, rather than further litigating, our way out of California’s housing crisis. State leaders are united and committed to ensuring that every city provides more affordable housing options.”

“Many essential workers – retail clerks, hospitality, workers, teachers, firefighters, and social service providers – are having a hard time renting homes in the communities where they work,” said Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez. “The lack of housing exacerbates residential segregation and impacts economic well-being. This is why it’s absolutely important that local jurisdictions including San Bernardino plan for and build more housing. The Governor has made it clear that failing to do so violates state law and prevents communities from thriving.”

“Our message is clear – every city and county will be held accountable to state housing laws,” said California Department of Housing & Community Director Gustavo Velasquez. “The state is making financial resources, technical assistance, and state-owned land available to help cities and counties meet current and future housing needs. We will continue to work in partnership with the City of San Bernardino to ensure they meet all the terms agreed to in this settlement. Ultimately, we want to spend time building homes – not in court.”

“This settlement agreement is a major victory for the residents of San Bernardino. San Bernardino has been in desperate need of new affordable housing for many years,” said Inland Counties Legal Services attorney Anthony Kim. “Housing Element law is designed to make building affordable housing more attractive to both City planners and housing developers alike. Submitting a Housing Element that complies with California law puts San Bernardino on track to be a more attractive place to live for all residents of California.”

Why it’s important: It is vital for local governments to implement policies that increase needed housing in California. Under Governor Newsom, the state has implemented incentives and accountability measures to ensure that each community is responsible for building their share of housing to meet the goal of 2.5 million new homes over the next eight years, with at least one million serving the needs of lower-income Californians.

Today, the state and city, along with individual residents represented by the Public Interest Law Project and Inland Counties Legal Services, requested the San Bernardino County Superior Court enter their settlement agreement as a Court-ordered legal judgment.

Under the settlement, the City of San Bernardino will:

San Bernardino, California, Diaper Distribution Program Marks 1 Millionth Diaper Milestone

The initiative is coordinated by Loma Linda University Health in partnership with several community groups.

An initiative that distributes diapers twice a month in San Bernardino recently celebrated a milestone of 1 million diapers distributed since the program launched 15 months ago. Leaders estimate the program has saved local residents $250,000 during a time that for many people has been financially difficult due to surging inflation.

The initiative is coordinated by Loma Linda University Health in partnership with several community groups, including Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County, San Bernardino City Unified School District, and the El Sol Neighborhood Educational Center via the Community Health & Education Worker (CHEW) Program.

Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County identified a need for diapers, which can require up to 20 percent of income for local residents, many of whom work low-wage jobs. The county’s partnership group then approached Loma Linda University Health for assistance with distribution because of its experience coordinating food distribution during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program operates out of an elementary school parking lot and distributes some 80,000 diapers a month, leaders say. The diapers are provided by the state through the county’s community partnership program. Loma Linda University Health warehouse employees work to store and deliver the diapers for each distribution event.

“We want to celebrate the families who are coming in, so we’re out there each time, rain or shine,” said Cristie Granillo, MEd, MS, of Loma Linda University Health’s Institute for Community Partnerships and manager of the CHEW program.

Strong community relationships have developed through this program, allowing the team to work toward closing health equity gaps by sharing essential resources, such as medical and school enrollment, potty training education, and awareness of other programs.

Drivers line up their cars awaiting assistance and are often given additional items or referrals to other services, such as preschool for their children or family nutrition counseling. Volunteers also distribute 600 food boxes each month.

The event has helped people like Monique Walter, who has nine children and has recently seen her apartment monthly rent increase by approximately 30 percent. “It’s really good to receive these because diapers are so expensive now,” Walter said in line while being served by a volunteer on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2023.

Loma Linda University students also participated at the event, either as volunteers or as a practicum requirement for their program of study. Many come from the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, School of Dentistry, and the School of Behavioral Health.

3.0-magnitude quake rattles San Bernardino in California, seismologists say

An early-morning 3.0-magnitude earthquake shook the San Bernardino area in California, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.The 4-mile deep quake hit about a mile from Fontana, just west of San Bernardino and north of Riverside, at 2:54 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, according to the USGS.Two hundred people from as far away as Los Angeles and Bakersfield reported feeling the tremor to the agency.San Bernardino ...

An early-morning 3.0-magnitude earthquake shook the San Bernardino area in California, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The 4-mile deep quake hit about a mile from Fontana, just west of San Bernardino and north of Riverside, at 2:54 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, according to the USGS.

Two hundred people from as far away as Los Angeles and Bakersfield reported feeling the tremor to the agency.

San Bernardino is about 55 miles east of Los Angeles.

Magnitude measures the energy released at the source of the earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey says. It replaces the old Richter scale.

Quakes between 2.5 and 5.4 magnitude are often felt but rarely cause much damage, according to Michigan Tech. Quakes below 2.5 magnitude are seldom felt by most people.

Earthquakes’ sudden, rapid shaking can cause fires, tsunamis, landslides or avalanches. They can happen anywhere, but they’re most common in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Puerto Rico and Washington, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

If an earthquake strikes, it’s best to protect yourself right away. Here are tips from experts:

The best way to protect yourself during an earthquake is to drop, cover and hold on, officials say.

“Wherever you are, drop down to your hands and knees and hold onto something sturdy,” officials say. “If you’re using a wheelchair or walker with a seat, make sure your wheels are locked and remain seated until the shaking stops.”

Be sure to cover your head and neck with your arms, and crawl under a sturdy table if possible. If no shelter is available, crawl to an interior wall away from windows.

Once under a table, officials say you should hold on with one hand and be ready to move with it.

“There can be serious hazards after an earthquake, such as damage to the building, leaking gas and water lines, or downed power lines,” officials say. “Expect aftershocks to follow the main shock of an earthquake. Be ready to Drop, Cover, and Hold On if you feel an aftershock.”

Attorney General Bonta, Newsom Administration Announce Settlement with City of San Bernardino for Violating State’s Housing Element Law

City of San Bernardino to Update Housing Plan to Allow 8,123 Additional Housing Units by 2029 SACRAMENTO — California Attorney General Rob Bonta, California Governor Gavin Newsom, California Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency (BCSH) Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez, and California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) Director Gustavo Velasquez today announced a settlement with the City of San Bernardino for violating the state’s ...

City of San Bernardino to Update Housing Plan to Allow 8,123 Additional Housing Units by 2029

SACRAMENTO — California Attorney General Rob Bonta, California Governor Gavin Newsom, California Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency (BCSH) Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez, and California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) Director Gustavo Velasquez today announced a settlement with the City of San Bernardino for violating the state’s Housing Element Law. The settlement, which is in the form of a proposed stipulated judgment and must be approved by the court, is the state's first related to California’s sixth “housing-element update cycle” for the 2021-2029 time period.

Under the state’s Housing Element Law, every city and county in California is required to periodically update its housing plan to meet its share of the regional and statewide housing needs. The City of San Bernardino failed to adopt a compliant housing plan for the 2021-2029 time period by the October 15, 2021 statutory deadline. HCD provided direct guidance and reminders to the city — ensuring its leaders were fully apprised of their legal requirements to submit a housing element for HCD’s review. As a result of this settlement, the City of San Bernardino will now adopt a compliant housing element no later than February 7, 2024 and take other related actions. Today’s settlement also resolves separate but related claims filed by individual residents represented by the Public Interest Law Project (PILP) and Inland Counties Legal Services (ICLS).

“Our state’s Housing Element Law is in place to ensure that all cities build their fair share of housing. No city is spared from that legal obligation. It is not a choice. It is the law,” said Attorney General Rob Bonta. “I applaud the City of San Bernardino’s city council, and its planning and legal team, for recognizing that public resources should be directed at collaborating, rather than further litigating, our way out of California’s housing crisis. State leaders are united and committed to ensuring that every city provides more affordable housing options.”

“Cities that fail to follow the law and plan for their fair share of housing will be held accountable – the status quo will not be tolerated," said Governor Gavin Newsom. "The state is providing incentives, resources and when necessary, taking legal action to ensure that communities do their part to meet the housing needs of Californians.”

“Many essential workers — retail clerks, hospitality, workers, teachers, firefighters, and social service providers — are having a hard time renting homes in the communities where they work,” said BCSH Secretary Lourdes Castro Ramírez. “The lack of housing exacerbates residential segregation and impacts economic well-being. This is why it’s absolutely important that local jurisdictions including San Bernardino plan for and build more housing. The Governor has made it clear that failing to do so violates state law and prevents communities from thriving.”

“Our message is clear — every city and county will be held accountable to state housing laws,” said HCD Director Gustavo Velasquez. “The state is making financial resources, technical assistance, and state-owned land available to help cities and counties meet current and future housing needs. We will continue to work in partnership with the City of San Bernardino to ensure they meet all the terms agreed to in this settlement because ultimately we want to spend time building homes — not in court.”

“This settlement agreement is a major victory for the residents of San Bernardino. San Bernardino has been in desperate need of new affordable housing for many years," said ICLS attorney Anthony Kim. "Housing Element law is designed to make building affordable housing more attractive to both City planners and housing developers alike. Submitting a Housing Element that complies with California law puts San Bernardino on track to be a more attractive place to live for all residents of California.”

State law requires local governments to include housing elements in their general plans, which serve as a local government’s “blueprint” for how the city and/or county will grow and develop. A housing element must include, among other things, an assessment of housing needs, an inventory of resources and constraints relevant to meeting those needs, and a program to implement the policies, goals, and objectives of the housing element. Once the housing element is adopted, it is implemented through zoning ordinances and other actions that put its objectives into effect. The housing element is a crucial tool for building housing for moderate-, low-, and very low-income Californians and redressing historical redlining and disinvestment.

After failing to adopt a housing element on time, HCD contacted and met with the City of San Bernardino on several occasions. Ultimately, due to the lack of compliance, HCD referred the matter to the California Attorney General’s Office for enforcement.

Under the settlement, the City of San Bernardino will:
