  1. (Is this thing on?) Hey, does everyone realize that these meetings are open to the public? That includes people who live in the area, shop at Westwood, enjoy Parks, and/or get mad when people stab each other in the public right of way.
    .
    This council has lined up an all star cast of people who are actually in charge of things, so that you, the named above, can talk to them directly. Don’t miss the opportunity.

  2. I heard about this earlier today. There may have been some kind of informal meeting involving the parties listed above, but one comment stuck in my mind. Apparently Target is reporting a 75% increase in losses due to shoplifting in the last year – in other words, since the installation of the transit corridor.

    I work near Westwood, and today as I used the pedestrian crossing by the park I was verbally accosted and offered drugs for purchase. The seller was a teenager.

  4. Anon, that does not surprise me at all. That is why I no longer patronize Westwood Village. Do not wanted to get stabbed or robbed at gun point. I will sit happily in my home and shop from Amazon for my home wares.
