A mayor’s office representative declined to comment, but according to Kevin Murray , executive director of the Weingart Center , which controls the property, the city is working out logistical details before making use of the containers.“ The city is supportive,” Murray said.“ I suspect we’ll be up and running relatively soon.” The Weingart Center, a homeless services provider, offered the use of a parking lot it leases at Sixth and San Pedro streets in February.

4 Downtown News June 11, 2012 EDITORIALS Déjà-Vu at Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis The Pico House T here’s a sense of déjà-vu concerning the Pico House, the historic structure near where the city of Los Angeles was founded. A public bidding competition has been launched to find an operator for the 1869 edifice, which today holds little more than sporadic arts events and monthly meetings for the commission that oversees El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. % It’s nice to know that the city hopes to fill the structure, which was the first three-story building in Los Angeles. However, we’re not particularly confident that the effort will be fruitful.
