City Council Dons Face Masks, Socially Separates and Conducts Business as Usual


In empty city council chambers, the mayor and city council members donned masks and seated themselves a safe distance from their colleagues to conduct the city’s business on Tuesday.  The meeting was a short one with a minimal agenda and no public comments that would have been permitted by telephone call in only.

A staff report recommended that the council approve, authorize and execute a Billboard Lease and Development Agreement with WOW Media, Inc.

The council set a public hearing to consider the adoption of Categorical Exemption EA-CE-2020-36, and General Plan Amendment GPA 2020-01 to adopt an Environmental Justice Element of the General Plan and another public hearing to consider adoption of a Categorical Exemption EA-CE-2020-37, and General Plan Amendment GPA 2020-02 to amend the Land Use Element of the Inglewood General Plan to clarify existing population density and building intensity allowances for all land use designations.

There were no remote public comments on any item on the agenda or any other matter and there were no reports from any city officials.

During the council member’s comments portion of the meeting, Member Padilla noted that it was National Police Week and he thanked the dedicated members of the Inglewood Police Department for the work they do day in and day out patrolling the streets of Inglewood and maintaining law and order. He asked Mayor Butts to adjourn this week’s city council meeting in celebration of National Police Week.

Mayor Butts adjourned the meeting in what was probably one of the shortest Inglewood City Council meetings in recent memory.
