A Community On The Rise
Something to look for in 2020 is art on our public electric art boxes. The Watts Neighborhood Council invites you to be a part of our vision for 2020 by coming to a meeting and getting involved. Join us on January 14, 6:30pm at the Old Watts Library.
We have at least one success story and expect more soon! Councilmember Buscaino reports that over 70 people have already moved into the Watts #ABridgeHome by the end of November with more move-ins scheduled. While people were moving in, a homeless dog moved himself in too! He has been named Watts by the staff who looked after him. With the support of local friends, Watts was able to get vaccinated, groomed, and ready for adoption. A family fostered him over a weekend and decided to fully adopt him. Watts now lives with a family of two other rescued dogs in his new home. What a great story!
November 16, 2019 Councilmember Buscaino joined with Streets LA and community leaders to break ground on the $4 Million Central Avenue Streetscape project which will make improvements on Central Ave between 97th Street and Imperial Highway.
A Bridge Home Watts opened November 14 to serve 100 people experiencing homelessness and provide services to get them on their feet again.
