Gateway Cities Service Council seeks public input on monthly meeting location

At their January meeting, the Gateway Cities Service Council discussed the idea of moving their monthly meetings to a later time to make it more convenient for the public to attend and participate. Since the room they currently hold their meetings at is currently not available in the evening, a change in time will likely necessitate a change in location. Two potential new meeting sites were identified, but before the Service Council makes a decision, they are seeking public input and guidance on what the best location might be.

The Service Council is leaning strongly towards pushing their meeting time from the current 2 p.m. starting time to 6 p.m., although 5 p.m. is also being considered. As of now, they would keep the same day of the month they normally hold their meetings on – the second Thursday of each month. One of the main criteria used in selecting the new meeting location is public transit access to the meeting site. The two new locations they are considering are:

Aspire Pacific Academy in Huntington Park
2565 E 58th St, between Pacific Blvd and Santa Fe Ave, just NE of Slauson
Metro Transit Connections include lines 60, 108/358, 251, 751 and 760

Douglas F. Dollarhide Community Center in Compton
301 Tamarind Avenue, between Wilmington and N Alameda, E Rosecrans and W Compton Blvd
Metro Transit Connections include lines 51/52/352, 60, 125, 127, 128 and 202, ¼ mile from Blue Line Station

What do you think? The Gateway Cities Service Council is interested in hearing your ideas about the best place for them to hold their monthly meetings. Feel free to suggest an alternate location if you feel there is a better one they should consider. You can share your thoughts with the Service Council at their next meeting, on February 11 at Salt Lake Community Park in Huntington Park beginning at 2 p.m., or submit your comments to the council via e-mail at

  1. I’m, sure there are numerous school auditoriums available or Rancho Los Amigos which has numerous meeting rooms.
