Yaroslavsky to Speak on Economy

The county's improving economy will be the main topic of discussion at Tuesday's meeting of the Studio City Residents Assn.

County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, the night's speaker, will address the recent financial recovery in the county that has led to infrastructure improvement projects and stimulated an economic boom for area businesses.

"We're interested to understand if the county's financial recovery is for real or if this is a temporary respite," said Tony Lucente, president of the association.

Before his election to the Board of Supervisors three years ago, Yaroslavsky represented Studio City as a member of the City Council.

The supervisor will also talk about his role in the proposed $1-million Universal Studios expansion and the Metro Rail project, Lucente said.

Also on the agenda are John Caprarelli, Los Angeles Police Department senior lead officer in Studio City, who will talk about crime trends in the area, and Lynn Marquardt, founder and president of Village Gardeners, a group of predominently Studio City residents who have created a garden on the southern bank of the Los Angeles River near Valleyheart Drive. The group is seeking volunteers and funding to expand the garden along the river.

The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Carpenter Avenue School Auditorium, 3909 Carpenter Ave.
