Illegal Hotels Public Hearing!


November 29, 2007 by westsideneighborhoodalliance

On Monday, December 3rd, the City Council held a hearing on Intro 534, the first illegal hotels bill.

WSNA members were the stars of the hearing, delivering compelling testimony about the need for aggressive action to fight illegal hotels.  We also joined the elected officials who are supporting the illegal hotels bill for a press conference on the steps of City Hall.

    I live in the neighborhood for several years. I’m getting worried with all the new buildings going up around our area, and wonder how it will effect me, in the sense that the owners will want to do the same renovations and decide they want to charge more.

    Also this bar that moved into my street, lied about their intentions and make all sorts of noise at 2 am in the morning.

    When do you guys meet? weekly or monthly?
