Urgent Update on Event this weekend.
LOS ANGELES REGION PLANNING HISTORY GROUP
LOS ANGELES HOUSING CRISIS: NOT THE FIRST TIME
The Board of Directors of the Los Angeles Region Planning History Group regrets to inform you that our housing colloquium, which was scheduled for this Saturday, March 14th at the Huntington Library, has been cancelled. We have received several phone calls and e-mails regarding the Novel Coronavirus and the canceling of events locally, statewide and nationally.
At this point in time, the Los Angeles County Health Department has not declared a local health emergency; however, the City of Pasadena City Council declared a State of Emergency regarding Novel Coronavirus on Monday night, March 9, 2020. Also, the Huntington Library is postponing events until the end of April.
Based on the best available information to date, we believe it is in everyone’s best interests to postpone and reschedule the colloquium. As of today, we had 110 persons registered for this colloquium. Although we have developed health precautionary measures for the event, we can never be too safe.
Due to the importance of sending this notice to you as soon as possible, we do not yet have a date for the rescheduled event. We will immediately begin working with the Huntington Library on a new date and inform you as soon as possible.
The LARPHG Board of Directors apologizes in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you, but in an abundance of caution we felt the best course of action was to postpone and reschedule the event.
Please feel free to contact Marsha Rood at (626) 568-8329 or Ken Farfsing, Colloquium Chair, at (626) 570-9618 if you have any questions.
