REMINDER - Important Community Meeting Tuesday May 11th

Lake View Terrace Traffic Safety Improvements Community Meeting

From the office of LA City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez:
As part of my broader effort to create safer streets in the 7th Council District, my office has been working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) to review traffic conditions and to design traffic safety improvements along Foothill Boulevard between Osborne and Wentworth in Lake View Terrace, a stretch that has seen several recent fatalities and injuries. In February of last year, we held a community meeting where local community members provided their input on this project. I’m happy to share that the proposed plan for the redesign has been completed and is ready for community input, a valuable part of this project.
Please join my office and the LADOT in a virtual discussion of the proposed plan on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, at 6:00 PM. All road users are invited to participate.
To participate, you must register at

For any questions on this project, or on other traffic safety issues in the area, please contact my Sunland-Tujunga District Office at (818) 352-3287.

Walk Up Pop-up Vaccine Sites in Council District 7 This Week

Posted on 04/26/2021

From the office of Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, 7th District:

Per LA County Public Health: "Looking at the data on breakthrough infections after vaccination that the CDC released last week, the risk of infection in people who are fully vaccinated was 1 in 13,275 – much less common than 1 in 10 infected with COVID-19 who were not vaccinated. And the risk of death goes from 1 in 500 to 1 in a million."

We are happy to offer a mobile vaccine clinic that brings vaccinations right here into the district, easing access for those that may not have internet access to sign up online or transportation to get to far-away vaccine sites.
We are currently taking FIRST DOSE appointments for our mobile vaccination clinic, which will be in Sunland-Tujunga again this coming week. As of next Tuesday, anyone with an appointment at one of our pop-up vaccine sites in Council District 7 will receive a Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which only requires one dose. These pop-up locations are walk-up, not drive-thru, and will provide FREE vaccines by appointment, regardless of immigration status. Anyone over the age of 16 is now eligible to receive a vaccination. Please see the attached flyers for more information.

If you have any questions or would like to get scheduled right away, please contact our Sylmar District Office at (818) 756-8409, Pacoima District Office at (818) 485-0600, or Sunland-Tujunga District Office at (818) 352-3287 to make an appointment for your vaccine.

Living with mosquitos is a common occurrence in the Valley. As the weather warms up, more bugs come out. Mosquitos in our area can test positive for West Nile Virus, which is primarily transmitted between birds that have the illness. If a mosquito infected with West Nile Virus bites you, it can make you very sick. While people who get West Nile Virus cannot transmit it to others, it is important to do what you can to prevent infection.

According to the Greater L.A. County Vector Control District, the best method to prevent mosquitos from breeding on your property is to limit the number of potential sources. Inspect around and inside your home, and if you find standing water, remove the source. Be sure to check weekly for standing water to prevent more mosquitos breeding - especially if it after rains.

You can learn more by visiting the Greater L.A. County Vector Control District website at

Sign up for regular updates so that you know what to do if West Nile comes to your neighborhood.
