Inglewood residents have begun gathering petition signatures from their neighbors to ‘opt out’ of the citywide permit parking program. Inglewood residents showed up in force for the Inglewood Parking and Traffic Commission meeting held September 22 where parking and traffic told residents they can “opt out” of the program, and here’s how.
Residents will be required to create a petition, and have 75% of their neighbors along their block, sign in favor of opting out of the citywide parking permit program.
“My neighbors have already started circulating a petition to opt out,” said Rosa Meza, who lives in the Avenues east of Crenshaw. Many residents living along 90th Street, which becomes Pincay, once you cross Crenshaw, heading to SoFi Stadium, didn’t mince words when it came to describing their experiences dealing with unruly stadium attendees.
“People are shitting on my neighbors yard and leaving feces and toilet paper behind,” said one angry resident who lives at the intersection of 90th and Crenshaw. “When my neighbors and I tell them to stop, they become aggressive.”
Residents also complained about the lack of parking enforcement and police officers patrolling the area.
“When you call traffic enforcement to come out and enforce the program, you get told they are all at the stadium, but you see them stalking us when we park on non game days to ticket US,” said an angry woman who lives near 2nd Ave and 90th Street.”
The parking commissioners stated the city would verify signatures with the city council having final say on whether your street would be exempt or not.
In the past, former City Clerk Yvonne Horton would verify signatures on petitions against voter rolls to determine validity as she explained during the city council meeting that removed city council meetings from 7pm to late afternoon.
The next parking and traffic commission meeting is scheduled for October 27 at 7pm. Mark your calendars and set a google alert on your phone.
People are not happy about what this man told them - the process to gather petitions to exempt their street from permit parking. Ultimately city council votes whether or not they will accept the 75% of households who sign the petition. It’s clear they making it up as they go. pic.twitter.com/0cEa70BGAD— Lennox-Inglewood Tenants Union (@InglewoodTenant) September 23, 2021

We are petitioning as well on my block, we went through the process of getting over 75% support from neighbors, submitted to City Hall (6 month ago) and was told that we would hear or receive a call for a hearing. But of course no one has called and the process has not yet been completed as promised.
It appears to me that they care more about everything but the residents of Inglewood, who helped to build Inglewood and has longevity in the City. We do not want this. We have had no problems with parking since the stadium was built. We also do not want the City monitoring our individual residence, who comes to visit us or stay over with us. Just another way to gain control and dictate our lives and how we interact with our family and friends.
What about putting the residents of Inglewood first and allowing us to have input on table items before trying to force us into doing something that does not make sense to us.
I tried to register but needed so much information i became overwhelmed completely.
Im praying every Sunday not to get ticketed.
Here is a concept.
The “license plate reader” equipment which the city purchased years ago shows to who and at what address the car is registered . ALL BEFORE PARKING RESTRICTIONS!!
So what is with the whole foolish application exercise really about?? Extra dollars since not all addresses received notice of new restrictions?
If the registered owner has the right to determine which licensed member of their family may or may not use and therefore park the car what is with requiring licenses for each permit.
Could this be method of determining who lives with you in your home ? Kids, In-laws, Friends?
WHY does Jimmy think he has the right to know who you let use your car ? Or visit or stay in your home overnight?
Does he think he is the occupancy manager of your bedrooms?
IS ALL BECAUSE HE CHOSE NOT TO REQUIRE KROENKE TO BUILD ADEQUATE PARKING FACILITIES ?
HOPEFULLY This is enough to make us all realize he does not represent us and does not deserve our respect or vote.
Yes get those Petitions but pease make photos and get time and date stamp on each page from the city clerk, and lest someone misplace that copy make a stamped copy for each signer. You will be surprised what “accidentally” get shredded or misplaced.
This administration has a habit of claiming they never received or the persons are not real and the other favorite is claiming that occurrences are false antidotes. Please make sure each neighbor stays aware of all the other abuse this Council does to our community with our money!
IF Yvonne Horton had legitimately attempted to verify signatures for the changing of the City Council meetings to afternoons, she would have found that THERE WAS NO PETITION!!!
She would have easily discovered that the documents presented were a CUT AND PASTE creation using the GUEST SIGN-IN REGISTER from the Westchester Villa Living facility at 220 Manchester Blvd. HIGHLIGHT that was GUEST REGISTER with names of people not living there but VISITORS of the nursing home residents…VISITING in many cases form Orange and Riverside Counties.
Yes This is the same facility that 2nd Ave resident Patricia Crenshaw organized an outing for a group of seniors (several with obvious memory issues and many bound to wheelchairs and medicated) to board a city bus to speak out in support of changing meeting times.
IT was truly inappropriate !!!!!
At least one of these 80 plus year olds kept shouting for her mother !!!
Several were asking when lunch would be coming !!!
This was clearly an outward abuse of elderly persons who should not have been USED to promote the Mayor (and his then only two puppets) agenda.
RALPH FRANKLIN and ELOY MORALES will have a dismal future when KARMA for that action (among others) kicks in.
As for Ms CRENSHAW (whose son-in-law magically shortly thereafter was hired by the city)…she should not be surprised as she ages if she encounters persons just as ungracious and using as she has been .
I’ve noticed Franklin is barely at home since he retired from the council. He’s probably hiding in either Big Bear or Florida in one of the properties he owns.
Inglewood has failed to protect the rights of its residents as they continue to cater to the needs of the stadium. I live in the Renaissance where they are telling us we can only have one visitor gone to our home on game day. Based on this rule, my children and parents will no longer be able to come over for our Sunday dinners. It appears as though the stadium events dictate my daily life. Inglewood must put its residents and their needs first!
We should ne able to have permits as before. This virtual thing is so strict.
