As chair of the city's Public Safety Commission, I'd like to present an update on some of our activities. The commission is structuring our upcoming 2012 meetings around the safety goals proposed in the LCF General Plan update. Commissioners Olivia Brown, Kay Linden, Tom Schafer, Joel Smith and I meet each month to review and recommend action on a wide range of safety issues impacting the city.
As the city's draft general plan moves closer to adoption, the Public Safety Commission had the opportunity to review the safety elements of the plan at our January meeting. The clear goals established in several areas offer a great framework for us to review existing programs and to publicize them in the appropriate season. Building on successful forums we've held on topics ranging from substance abuse and social hosting to earthquake and mudslide preparedness, we hope that the community will turn out to hear presentations on some of the key safety issues affecting La Cañada Flintridge.
