Legalizing Beekeeping is on this Tuesday's meeting agenda for LA City Council District 11. The core of the 11th district is composed of the Westside communities of Brentwood, Brentwood Glen, Pacific Palisades, the Palisades Highland, Mar Vista, Del Rey, and Venice. The district also includes LAX and the surrounding communities of Westchester, Playa del Rey and Playa Vista. A very small piece of the San Fernando Valley is located in the northernmost section of the district.
It looks like the path to legalization in LA will be one district at a time, so this could be a big step for us. We've already succeeded in Santa Monica.
