Who else needs a moon-beauty infusion? After today's ugliness it feels pretty good to relax into this dusk-y embrace. #moonpower #delreylagoon #savepdr #playadelrey #protectwhatmattersmost
The Argonaut' s Darling, Ben Reznik(yup, Legado's lawyer), was given a full page article in this week's Argonaut to espouse his lies, race baiting, false altruism, and slander of the Playa Del Rey community. Mysteriously missing from the Argonaut: any coverage about Tuesdays hearing where Reznik got reamed, Bonin's speach which obliterated all of Reznik's points, and/or equal opportunity for The Playa Del Rey Guardians to have a full page opinion piece. And the day before it goes to council, what a coincidence... Attached is the article and contact information for The Argonaut. Call and write. Tell it like it is PDR! Also attached, Legado's rendering of inclusivity (as displayed at their pop up) all white people drawn as residents and they purposefully made the cars around their building an audi and BMW. You know, for the struggling Audi drivers... #savepdr #playaprotector #playadelrey #followthemoney

@mikebonin fiercely stands for Playa del Rey, AGAIN, this morning on his Facebook page. The community is blown away by your support, and anyone who has wondered "is anything besides money valued in this world?" will be moved by your words: "A developer wants city land to expand his property and build more luxury housing in downtown Playa del Rey. I’m standing with the community and saying no. That land could be used for public benefit to increase beach parking, enhance coastal access, and improve the community, not to increase profits. It’s amazing how apoplectic the developer-lobbyist industrial complex gets when someone dares to treat their requests as anything less than divine right." -Mike Bonin #savepdr #playadelrey #responsibledevelopment #community #thankyoumikebonin
Thank you @mikebonin for the impassioned, intelligent, and nuanced speach on behalf of Playa del Rey! As Councilman Bonin said, it is extremely rare that he speaks at a PLUM hearing, and his speach was BEYOND phenomenal! He demonstrated a complete understanding of the unique qualities and challenges of Playa del Rey, and why it must be protected. I know everyone in attendance was touched and excited by his speach, please share your thoughts and gratitude at mike.bonin@lacity.org #savepdr #playadelrey #responsibledevelopment #community #protectwhatmattersmost
If you're not at the hearing, please keep us in your thoughts. It's no small feet to take on a developer with limitless money and arrogance. BUT, we've made it this far with the spirit of community and the willingness to stand in protection of what is truly valuable. I believe in us. Let's do this! ❤ #savepdr #playadelrey #playaprotector #community #responsibledevelopment #oursoulisnotforsale #inscaleincharacter #makemagic

✨Exploration: To use a block, or not to use a block. Scroll to the left to see the poses alone ✨ I, like a lot of folks, tend to put the emphasis of a pose somewhere easy for me, and neglect the opportunity to challenge myself in an area that’s harder for me. In this video I took Utthita Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) and Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) both without a block (the way I usually do it) and then with a block (starting to explore this now). In big poses, I tend to put the emphasis of the pose in my hamstrings. Because my ego likes to be able to do stuff 😇This is an easy place for me to focus because I’m pretty flexy in my hammies. However, if instead I use a block to lift my center up a bit, then I can lengthen my spine, find space in my twist, and even out both sides of my rib cage. It’s harder!! Our thoracic region, our ribs, don’t have much rotation! Only about 30 degrees. Lumbar, the lower spine, only has about 5 degrees rotation! So to make space in and rotate the spine is HARDER for me than exercising my flexy hamstrings. Also: Notice how I am NOT turning my head until last, if at all! That’s because we have the most natural rotation in our cervical spine, our necks, a whopping 90 degrees rotation! and it’s very tempting to consider turning our heads to be the entire twist! It should be done last if at all. Most of the twist should be found in other areas of the spine first. I’m learning so much from this #yogateachertraining and from taping myself! There so much room for growth!! Yoga is something we can work on our entire lives and never be masters! It’s not about the destination, but the journey 🙄 Seriously though, also doing yoga on carpet SUCKS 😩 My next place will have hardwood floors again!! 🙏🏻✨🧘🏻‍♀️
"Ok, so what's the deal with Tuesday?" You might be asking yourself. Read the FAQ'S on all things Appeals Hearing @ P.L.U.M, and why it's THE critical step Q: What is so important about the PLUM hearing and what happens? A: This is where our Appeal on the project will be decided. The Committee will hear the case then vote to grant the Appeal ( we win) or deny the Appeal ( they win). These cases are typically decided by the specific Committee in this case the PLUM Committee. It then goes to the full Council to be voted on. Once the full Council has decided the decision is final. Q: So if the city council has the final vote, why are we showing up for the PLUM hearing? A: It would be rare and out of character for PLUM to decide one way and the full Council to decide another. Also the Council makes a practice out of letting the Councilmember whose district a project is in determine projects are good or bad for his community. Q: Why does community presence matter, what happens if I come? A: Our community showing up en masse shows the Committee that we are behind our Councilman, committed to our community, active, engaged, involved. It also empowers Councilman Bonin who has explicitly voiced his support for our stand for responsible development. He continues to be an incredible voice for, and ally of Playa del Rey.

Instead of "where's waldo" we can play "where's the airplane" in PDR photos. I always think there's something charming about the airplanes in the landscape of Playa del Rey. #whereswaldo #airplane #sunflower #inscaleincharacter #savepdr #playadelrey

The fight for responsible development is not exclusively about Legado's current proposed project. Nor is it soley about setting a precedent for Legado's other properties(outlaws building, tanners building, the dunes). This fight is about determining the future of Playa del Rey. These are just a few of the commercial buildings for sale in lower PDR, and you better believe potential developers have their eyes on a prize. We already know that current landlords along Culver Blvd. have written in support of the Legado Project IF they too can develop to oversized standards of height and density. 🌟Now is the time to take a stand, and to take action for the town that we love. Whether you live and/or play here, we MUST send a clear message: the soul of Playa del Rey IS NOT FOR SALE.🌟 www.savepdr.org #signandshare the petition #savepdr #playadelrey #community #responsibledevelopment #37ft #adequateabovegroundparking #shackburger
Thank you @argonautnews for sharing voices from our community! Check out the Letters To The Editor in the latest issue of the Argonaut, where community members take on Legado's divisive & duplicitous PR tactics, and address why community involvement is essential to City Council rejecting Legado's project as proposed. Scroll through the photos for a snippet from both letters, and then copy&paste the link below to read the full letters #savepdr #playadelrey #community #responsibledevelopment #getinvolved

"Malama ka'aina" is a beautiful Hawaiian term which means to care for, to nurture, and live in harmony with the land. It speaks to a deep traditional value of being in relationship with, and stewards for the land. As with all GOOD relationships, it is not one sided. Come show your love for our beautiful beach TODAY AY NOON, at the monthly PDR community beach clean up. Look for the tent across from the Del Rey Lagoon basketball courts. 🌺 Www.savepdr.org Photograph by @riekatagiri #malamaaina #alohaaina #giveback #savepdr #playadelrey #beachcleanup #community

I need 3 people who would be willing to help with a zip code survey this weekend❤ A top priority for the coastal commission is protecting beach access. PDR is visited from people all over the city (and tourists) and they must be able to park. This is one of the reasons why The Coastal Act has strict requirements for the amount of parking offered in new developments. As part of the upcoming Appeals Hearing we want to submit information about who is coming to the beach(zip codes) and what their parking experience was like . Who will donate some time to help protect PdR? Materials will be provided, just coordinate with me to pick them up #community #savepdr #playadelrey
Ok seriously, y'all are blowing my mind! The call for volunteers has only been up a couple days, and the FB event a couple hours, and already so much community participation! Your love for this town is not lip service. Thank you for your continued willingness to put your action where your heart is!

WHEN: Tues August 14th, 2:30pm WHAT: Legado hearing with Planning & Land Use Management (PLUM) WHERE: City Hall, downtown Los Angeles WHY: This is a critical step in our fight for responsible development in #playadelrey and we MUST have #community presence. PLUM is a subcommittee within the City Council, and we need to show where the community stands and that we will not accept Legado's exploitive project. We MUST show, with our presence, that we are paying attention and will not accept Legado forever destroying the character of our town. This project not only violates the longstanding regulations from the #coastalcommission , but will unleash an uncontrollable wave of development with no standards to protect the scale and character of PDR. I know there are many pulls on your time, attention, and energy, but we need you there on Aug 14th. Everyone has been doing a remarkable job of staying positive and staying active, and your positive presence is, needed now more than ever. If it is at all possible for you to be there, please come and stand for Playa, and for all those who are unable but wish they could! #savepdr #inscaleincharacter #37ft #adequateabovegroundparking
