A Message from your LA Chapter President: Chris Jones

Dear Members,

       Thank you to everyone who made it out for last month’s meeting. I have attended my fair share of meetings and felt January’s meeting was a special one. Of course I am a little biased with it being my first meeting at the helm, but it was special because of the camaraderie experienced as we celebrated Jay Seymour’s dedication to our Chapter. It was great to see all those in attendance and I want to give one final thanks to Jay and all those that shared their stories. It was a great night.

      I would like to briefly discuss Measure S. Measure S is a City of Los Angeles initiative going to ballot on March 7th, aimed at instilling a two year halt on all new development projects requiring a zone change or general plan amendment. Supporters of Measure S feel that the initiative would halt the megadevelopments that are increasing the traffic in the metro area while opponents feel that this initiative would further worsen the current housing shortage. Should this initiative pass, this will greatly reduce the amount of new developments within the City of Los Angeles. I encourage everyone to read up on Measure S, inform your friends and family, and get out and vote. Some feel that many of the restrictions set forth in Measure S could last longer than the stated two years. For more information, check out www.goestoofar.com and be sure to research the pros and cons for yourself, but most importantly, if you are able to vote on this initiative, please do so.

       In February in ancient times, Romans would hold a celebration called Terminalia to honor the god Terminus. Terminus is the Roman god that would oversee boundary lines. It is said that on February 23rd, the Romans would gather and provide an offering and even sacrifice a lamb or young pig to ensure that their boundaries were looked after.

We will simply gather at Taix with our fellow surveyors. No sacrifice required. So, please come out and join us for our second meeting of the year this Thursday, February 2nd at Taix French Restaurant, located at 1911 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026. Social hour begins at 6:00, meeting begins at 7:00. Our very own John Tosto will be talking to the Chapter about error analysis. This is a great opportunity to get a refresher and its perfect timing for those planning to sit for the upcoming exam in April.


Respectfully,
Chris Jones, PLS 8193
