KCAL 9 Reports From Marquez Elementary LADWP Meeting

Reporter Rachel Kim files her story following a meeting about a proposed LADWP station next to the Pacific Palisades elementary school.

Local news station KCAL 9 reported live from Monday night, following a community meeting to discuss the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's proposal to build a second power station next to the school.

Reporter Rachel Kim was live at the meeting, which was hosted by Los Angeles Unified School District board member Steve Zimmer. Kim said dozens of community members attended the event to discuss the possible dangers of having a power station in the neighborhood.

According to a press release, Zimmer called the community meeting because of the "overwhelming number of emails sent by the Marquez community to Zimmer’s office" opposing the LADWP station.

According to the LADWP, due to increased power requirements in the Palisades, a second station is needed. The LADWP proposed two sites: one behind and the other on Marquez Avenue, next to Marquez Elementary.

Pali Patch has been following this story. We will have all the details from Monday's meeting in an upcoming report.
