I was very proud to finally pass the ordinance to officially ban individuals from selling personal cars on certain streets in Arleta. The final ordinance included streets in other interested communities as well and prohibits vehicles with a “For Sale” signs from parking on Van Nuys Blvd. between Woodman Ave. to the I-5 freeway and Woodman Ave. between Roscoe and Van Nuys Blvd.
Local residents raised concerns with my staff and I after they noticed a growing number of vehicles consistently parking on Roscoe and Van Nuys for the sole purpose of displaying them for private sale. This situation worsened as on-street parking was monopolized, motor oil leaked on the pavement and the neighborhood felt their quality of life was affected by the visual blight created.
I’m proud to represent the community in which I was born and raised and I believe all of Council District Six deserves to share in that pride. Arleta is a beautiful neighborhood and it is my hope that this motion will preserve the quality of life for residents in this area and resolve the growing problems associated with selling personal items on a public street, in this small community.
