Online Home-Sharing Platform Survey

Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning is conducting a survey on people’s experiences with online home-sharing platforms for temporary lodging in a house or apartment instead of a hotel or motel. We are studying whether home-sharing provides positive benefits or negative impacts on our unincorporated communities. This anonymous survey is for people who share their homes, people who stay in hosted homes, and neighbors. No names or sign-ups are required to enter. If you receive this email on behalf of an organization, please forward this email with the survey link with all members of your organization.


Please respond by July 20, 2018 by clicking on the link below for the survey: LA County Home-Sharing Platforms Survey


Should you have any further comments or questions, please email Ordinance Studies at Thank you for your participation!

Chapman Woods Electrical Service Reliability Survey Results

Thanks to everyone that participated in the recent electrical survey.  The Chapman Woods Board will use these results to better serve the interests of the community.  As of this post, we’ve had 67 responses through the mail in form attached to the last The Call newsletter as well as web surveys.  Summarized results are posted below along with a plot of electrical reliability in a map.  The Chapman Woods Board has already spoken to a representative at Southern California Edison.  They were very impressed with the valuable data we were able to provide, which will help with their internal investigation of electrical reliability at Chapman Woods.  We will continue to update you all as we work to resolve the issue for those of you affected by unreliable electricity service.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to send Steve an email at
