The 8th Annual Northeast Los Angeles Veterans Day Parade & Celebration is this weekend!

In This Newsletter:

Please Join Councilmember Huizar in Honoring our Veterans This Holiday Weekend!

Councilmember Huizar invites you to join him and the Council District 14 office in honoring our veterans and their families for their dedication, unselfish sacrifice and protection of our freedoms this Veterans’ Day weekend.
CD14 is sponsoring several Veterans Day events throughout the district and we hope to see you there. If you cannot attend, please take the time to thank a veteran for their service.
“Everyday is Veterans’ Day," said Councilmember Huizar. "We need to thank them more often for all they’ve done to protect the freedoms we all hold so dear.”
Each year Americans across the country celebrate the service of our nation's veterans. This is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918. We thank our veterans for their services to the United States. Veterans Day is intended to honor and thank all military personnel who served the United States in all wars, particularly living veterans.
On Sunday, November 10th, the Office of Councilmember Jose Huizar, in coordination with Councilmember Gil Cedillo and community groups, will proudly sponsor the 8th Annual Northeast Los Angeles Veterans Day Parade & Celebration. On Monday, November 11th, the Office will host a Solemn Ceremony. Please see below for more details.

LA River Ecosystem Restoration Study - A Historic Opportunity

The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is studying a plan to restore habitat along 11 miles of the LA River from Griffith Park to Downtown. The Army Corps needs to hear from you, to ensure that we don't squander this unprecedented opportunity to green the City.
Four alternatives are being considered in the study, and the City is united in calling for the Federal government to pursue the most expansive and visionary plan, known as “Alternative 20.” Councilmember Huizar has called Alternative 20 “the best opportunity to fully realize our goals of completely transforming the Los Angeles River.” Unfortunately, USACE has “tentatively selected” an option that creates less habitat and connects fewer areas to the River. The LA River has been neglected and degraded as a result of urban development in the floodplain, pollution, and channelization. A revitalized river would offer lively green space with bike paths, pedestrian trails, parks, and natural habitat areas. It can serve as a bridge to connect urban life with nature.

Get Involved!
Councilman Huizar sent his letter of support for Alternative 20 in June. Now it's time for everyone who cares about the river to get involved and be heard! Let the USACE know that you support restoration efforts on the LA River. Mention that you want the Army Corps to pursue the most expansive alternative, one that creates the most habitats and connects the most areas to the River. If you wish, you can mention support for “Alternative 20.”
1. It’s easy to submit your comments online.
2. Join your neighbors in support of a greener River at the USACE Public Hearing on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. at the LA River Center, 570 W. Ave. 26, L.A., 90065.
3. Or email comments to USACE at
