The Los Angeles Police Department – Central Division was pleasantly surprised with the generosity by the residents of Barker Block who donated toys to benefit the underprivileged children of Downtown Los Angeles. Because of your donations, LAPD will provide a toy that will bring a smile to a deserving child. For many, it will be their only gift received this holiday season. Your participation to help make this possible is greatly appreciated!
Welcome to Barker Block
All year round, but especially during the holidays, law enforcement receives reports of packages stolen right off the doorstep. To make sure your holiday gifts are safe, be sure to monitor when your packages are expected to arrive and don’t leave them at your doorstep or in your mailbox.
Many delivery services provide for delivery alerts and may even allow you to schedule a drop off time for when you are home. If possible, you can also ship your packages to your workplace or have a neighbor who is home during the day collect your packages for safekeeping.
Don’t fall victim of theft by leaving personal property or deliveries exposed or unattended. Pick up your mail on a daily basis and remove packages left at your door promptly. Stay alert and report suspicious activity to your local Los Angeles Police Department.
Thank you for helping to keep Barker Block a safe community!
This year has certainly been one for the history books! All households have had to adjust to living under the “New Normal” with changes occurring in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dealing with this pandemic may be stressful for many people. Fear and anxiety about a new disease and what could happen can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Public health actions, such as social distancing, can also make people feel isolated and lonely and can increase stress and anxiety. However, these actions are necessary to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As you are aware, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any common area facility or location where people are present or gather. While the importance of having the Association’s common areas and amenities available is recognized, the Board of Directors must consider preserving the health and well-being of all residents within the Barker Block community.
Pursuant to the most recent Safer at Home Order issued by the Los Angeles Department of Public Health which is now in effect through the end of year (and most likely extended through the new year), a decision was reached to keep the HOA’s common area emergency rules in place until further notice or as deemed safe by the Health Department.
The Association must ensure that the recreational facilities do not become breeding grounds for the resurgence of the virus. Please be reminded that the emergency rules require residents to wear a mask at all times while in the common area grounds, including the pool, hallways, elevators etc. Face masks may be removed only when actively swimming and using the spa or while eating or drinking.
It is of utmost importance that every person take responsibility to protect others from asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 by wearing protective face masks as required and to rigorously practice social distancing. Failure to comply with the COVID-19 Emergency Rules will result in disciplinary action in accordance to the Association’s Enforcement Policy which may include fines up to $300.00 per occurrence.
Residents are strongly encouraged to consider keeping the number of guests or service providers coming in/out of the community to a minimum as it will help reduce the risk of exposure to Covid-19. Your efforts to keep the community’s safety a top priority are greatly appreciated.
Together we will get through this!
