Echo Park BID at City Council committee today

From an LAist article published today, titled: Watch Out Drunk Hipsters, Echo Park Might Get a Security Detail

A proposal to create a Business Improvement District (BID) in Echo Park heads to a City Council committee (.pdf) this afternoon. Submitted by Councilman Eric Garcetti in January, it “would serve the local business community by providing increased security, homeless services, beautification, and streetscape maintenance. Establishment of the BID is expected to revitalize the local economy and is a positive step towards neighborhood renewal.” Not everyone is on board, though. The Eastsider LA spoke to one business owner that was not too happy. “I can’t stand the idea of rent-a-cops harassing our street vendors, our homeless, our cholos and our drunk hipsters. It’s just not needed,” the owner said.

It’s probably not the “drunk hipsters” who have to worry – what do you think of “increased security” in light of the Echo Park Lake swap meet issues?

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it
    up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints
    for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    certainly like your web-site but you need to test the spelling
    on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife
    with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I’ll surely come again again.
