SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The City Council will hold a joint workshop with the Planning Commission to discuss parking policies for the city and the Lantern District.
In January, members of the public spoke in regards to concerns they had about commercial spillover into residential neighborhoods from the Lantern District. There were also concerns raised by Council members regarding Doheny Village updates.
Mayor Debra Lewis said she was excited about a joint meeting to discuss those issues. Councilman Joe Muller said it will be important to discuss Doheny Village so issues that arose from the Lantern District don’t get repeated.
Since the Council approved of the meeting, the city staff will work on a budget and a timeline to schedule the workshop.
