SSCA meetings continue via Zoom.

Membership continues to increase, with influx of both new members and new neighbors. We are now at 70% of our GOAL. Hopefully, you have noticed the “RENEW/JOIN” signage strategically placed throughout South Shores in our campaign effort to grow continue SSCA membership.    


Remember: Sunday, September 18, 2022, 2pm -5pm


The South Shores Sociables has a current membership of nineteen people. The last gathering on June 30 was well attended. A photo has been posted on our website. A Mahjong and Book Club will be starting in September.

On Saturday June 25th the SSCA Sidewalk Brigade teamed up with CyberWatcher’s and George Matthews and his San Pedro CRP Volunteer Crew to aggressively attack the blighted area on Western Ave. The success of this ALL-volunteer TEAM, finally motivated our Councilman’s office to contact an organization known as Clean Wilmington who removed the dead trees. There is no date as to when new trees will be planted.     

There are several improvements noted at Royal Palms. A new security company appears to be enforcing pay policy and closing at appropriate hours; although there is evidence that the pay booth is abandoned before closing. Cars are being requested to leave; although motorcycles are still gaining access after-hours. LASD is assisting LAPD with monitoring activity. Locks and spikes have been replaced.  AUTION- several loud explosions have been reported with a source unknown!

Attempts continue addressing oversized and code violation “For Rent” sign at 25th and Anchovy. Our city, together with LADBS, have ignored pleas, and phone calls for action. 

There is still no positive feedback or words of encouragement from Councilman’s Buscaino’s office, other than, we have notified the proper agency:

  1. Sidewalk repair, posing continued safety hazard
  2. Alley repair, lower South Shores
  3. Tree trimming
  4. Western Ave. tree replacement
  5. etc., etc., etc.
