District 4 Report — March 2021

Greetings to Everyone From District 4.

COVID is really putting a damper on life!  However, I am still looking forward to a busy year with some good projects upcoming in the Valleys.

In February, The Building Trades announced that they are working on a PLA worth over $1.5 billion to rebuild or retrofit the Olive View Medical Center Hospital in Sylmar and adding several buildings to the facility over the next several years. There are two water filtration plants currently under construction, one in Arleta and the other one in North Hollywood.  There are plenty of LAUSD and LACCD projects on the horizon also. Hopefully, The Warner Center Project will get started soon with hotels, residential, retail stores, and a 7500-seat arena. This project will be very close to the new Westfield Mall currently under construction.

I would like to congratulate all the new members who were sworn into membership at the informational meeting by President Roten. I remember my swearing in at The Carpenter’s Hall in Van Nuys back on January 2, 1980. There was a fist fight at the meeting and a member was ejected. I thought it was kind of cool, but then my Dad told me, “that doesn’t happen very often.”

Everyone, please be safe, wear a mask, and social distance. Hopefully, we can get past this and get on with our lives. I would also like to thank my stewards for their great work.
