As we head into a weekend full of events on the Westside, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl announced the following measures his council office has taken to help mitigate the impact the LA Triathlon will have on the community and the Abbot Kinney Festival.
The council office has required the event sponsor of the L.A. Triathlon to:
- Flier all residences, apartments and businesses along the route
- Install six electronic changeable message signs to notify constituents of event related closures
- To establish a resident information/complaint line to address issues prior to, and following the event
- Reach out to all local news outlets
- Reach out to all affected neighborhood councils and farmers markets
- Reach out to all houses of worship along the street closure
The council office has accomplished the following in preparation for the event:
- Issued two press releases to advise residents of the event related times, street closures and towing restrictions
- Ensured LAPD Pacific Division placed fliers on vehicles parked along S. Venice Blvd. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings to supplement existing “no parking/tow-away” signage posted along the route to avoid ticketing and towing
- Worked closely with LADOT and LAPD to mitigate any potential conflicts with the Abbot Kinney Festival
