WELCOME D MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT/CEO

’d like to welcome you to our 2020 Culver City The Guide. This magazine will serve as a way finder, connector and guide for you as you navigate the city. Whether you are new to the city or a long-time resident, I trust that the editorial in this magazine will give you a better insight to both the past, present and bright future of our community. D As it relates to the Chamber, I am honored to be in my 3rd Year as the President/CEO of an organization that is in its 99th year of business leadership. Last year was an amazing year of growth and change. We hosted our largest Women in Business Leadership Luncheon with more than 300 in attendance, launched our brand-new Economic Outlook that hosted a TedTalk format with Dr. Chris Thornberg (Beacon Economics), Dr. John Jenrette (Cedar-Sinai), Tammy Brandt (Dreamscape Immersive), Albert Chang (Amazon) & Sol Blumenfeld (City of Culver City) speaking on the Country, State, Local and Industry trajectories. Additionally, we welcomed many new businesses to our membership and saw great growth in our local community with a few development projects, like the Culver Steps, coming online. 2020, however, has been a year that has challenged all of us. From the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic, which were felt far and wide, to the civil unrest surrounding equality, there is much work left for all of us to do in the future. We will continue delivering on our mission commitment of being “A CATALYST for business growth and expansion; A CONNECTOR or people, ideas and resources.; and, A CHAMPION of strong community.” We have and will continue to launch a few events, programming and resources, this year, that will help us continue to serve our diverse membership, as well as intrigue more of our business population to get engaged with us. Among those will be an a series of industry-specific roundtables (Real Estate/Landlords, Insurance, Retail, Restaurant, Non-Profit, Health & Wellness), an expansion of our HR Forum series that will keep business owners and leaders ahead of the compliance curve post COVID-19, multi-chamber , a Connection Leads group which helps members form power referral teams within the Chamber, an infusion of new 2020 Chamber University courses (Social Media, Marketing, Business Management, Branding Post-COVID-19), and a brand new incubator membership level/program for our “solo-preneurs” and entrepreneurs (where resources will be aligned to the 8 I

specific needs of a startup company). Additionally, we have rolled out our “Convo with the Mayor” series, which is a weekly call and intimate conversation with our Mayor and a chance for attendees to have a very real-time Q & A. It is truly an honor to be able to represent this fine organization in this wonderful city – especially as we navigate through these incredibly challenging times in Culver City’s history. I wish that for those of you that have never worked with the Chamber before, that you will do so this year. And, for those of you that have always been loyal to the Chamber, I want to thank you and ask that you connect with us on a deeper level moving forward. As always, I am available to connect with each and everyone one of you. Please don’t hesitate to call or email. Onward and upward to our great city and our vibrant business community. We will thrive again, together.

IN THE HEART OF IT ALL.

There’s No Place Like Home. A destination unlike any other, The Culver Steps is not only home to Amazon Studios, but now to places like Mendocino Farms, Philz Coffee, CorePower Yoga and many more to come. And it's not just for shopping and dining. With its outdoor public plaza, The Culver Steps is the go-to gathering spot—for outdoor movies, concerts, farmers’ markets and more. Amazon Studios is also next door at The Culver Studios— pioneering change and shaping the future for the industry’s next generation. With all this going on, it’s the place you’ll want to be who wouldn’t want to call it home?

The Culver Steps (above) and The Culver Studios (below) are both home to Amazon Studios.

WELCOME D MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR OF THE BOARD

It’s my pleasure to invite you to review this edition of The Guide, your one-stop resource for connecting with Culver City’s dynamic and diverse business community. The Guide exemplifies all the Chamber of Commerce stands for as a CATALYST, a CONNECTOR and a CHAMPION of a vibrant community with robust economic opportunity. As Chair of the Chamber Board for 2020, I’m honored to serve the Chamber and the City in this capacity during a time of significant and important revitalization. At the same time, the world is in a different place than it was six months ago when I wrote the first draft of this welcome message, with all of us facing unprecedented challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic and addressing over-due societal inequities. As a long-time employee of Sony Pictures and a Culver City resident with kids in Culver City’s school district, my desire to ensure Culver City remains a strong and equitable community runs deep. As a global entertainment company marking 30 years in Culver City and being housed in one of the most famous movie studios of all time, Sony Pictures strives to embrace its legacy in Culver City, stand on the leading edge of innovation, and hold itself to the highest standards by following the guiding principles of inclusion and collaboration. In the same vein, I’d like to think we mirror the renaissance, growth and principles of Culver City as well. On behalf of the Chamber, we welcome new creative economy, technology, bioscience and other unique companies and services to the City while pledging our ongoing support to the numerous businesses that have called Culver City home for years and serve our community so well. I look forward to the future of the Chamber and the City because we can only move ahead working together, supporting each other in this community that we all value. Sincerely,

Kristin Cavanaugh

ower Insurance Associates, Inc. has been a pillar in our community since 1961. As a third-generation insurance agency, Janice Beighey knows the Culver City community as well as anyone, after all she is a neighbor, parent, CCHS alum and an active community member. D “When most people say they are local, they mean they have an office in the community, but Tower Insurance is a part of our community,” said Beighey, who has been running the family business since 2007. “We are involved with local and national charities and organizations, like Culver City Backpacks for Kids Program, Culver City Education Foundation, Culver City Chamber of Commerce, Homeboy Industries and Rotary International. We believe that if we put our time and money where it matters the most, we all benefit.”

With more than 100 years of combined insurance experience, Beighey’s knowledgeable staff is adept at making insurance recommendations that best fit the needs of her clients. As an independent agency, Tower Insurance offers a choice of multiple insurance carriers, coverages, price, and more. The company’s focus is to educate its clients and find the insurance coverage that best suit their unique needs and provides them with the best options. From auto, boat and motorcycle insurance to coverage for earthquakes, special events, business liability and more, Tower Insurance provides insurance products with some of the country’s most trusted companies, including Mercury, Safeco, Nationwide, Hartford, Travelers and others; but with a local, personal touch. “Nothing is more important to us than

“At the end of the day, it just comes down to caring about people, It’s really just that simple.” getting to know our clients and making sure that when a claim situation arises, Team Tower will be there to make sure their interests are protected and not forgotten,” Beighey said. In 1961, Al Wahlrab, the father of Janet Chabola; Dan White; Ernie Peters; and Merrill “Buzz” Nelson founded Tower with the belief that protecting Culver City residents meant more than just taking care of their insurance needs. It meant making sure the community was a great place to live, work and play. When the second generation of leaders arrived on the Tower scene two decades later, Janet Wahlrab (Chabola) and her husband, Jerry, reaffirmed the legacy of integrity and community involvement, participating in a wide array of community organizations and always being there to support everything from Little League to the local schools. Over the years, the Tower office was often the hub of community activity – people talking about the schools, local politics and even, insurance. “We can’t do business with every client face-to-face the way the original partners did,” Beighey said. “So, we do some things differently, like communicate through email, our new quarterly newsletters, docu-sign, texting and even Facebook. Instead of seeing everyone in town at mealtime at the local diner, we set up events where we see many of our clients, such as local shredding events, food drives, Santa’s Open House, annual Customer Appreciation BBQ, the George Burris Car Show and CCPD National Night Out.” After all, with nearly 60 years of operations in Culver City, Beighey and her team know how to build relationships with their clients and community members. “At the end of the day, it just comes down to caring about people,” she said. “It’s really just that simple.”

oing to the doctor can be an arduous and frustrating process even in the best circumstances, but if you have cerebral palsy or suffer from autism, it can be frightening or downright dangerous. There have been cases of doctors missing a patient’s broken hip for years or missing a tumor in the ear simply because they didn’t understand how best to work with the patient in order to conduct a proper examination. D That’s where Carmen Ibarra and The Achievable Foundation step in. D “Our vision is a simple one - to change the face of health care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities,” said the Foundation’s CEO. “There are a huge number of health disparities among those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and we are trying to change that dynamic.” The Achievable Foundation, headquartered in Culver City, provides a wide array of services to do just that. The Foundation provides direct services, engaging a team of physicians well-versed in dealing with those who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, including those experienced in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics and even psychiatry and psychology. Through its website – www.achievable.org – the Foundation allows patients to learn about what will happen during their initial visit and even includes a video showing a mock visit. The site also tries to demystify some of the misconceptions about how to deal with patients who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. “Oftentimes, everything that happens with a patient is attributed to the disability – not because they are really in pain or uncom-

fortable,” she said. “It’s hard if a patient is uncooperative or non-verbal. Parents, for example, are used to having to fight to get services for their children. It’s refreshing for them to come here, where they don’t have to push and push and push to get what they need.” And while The Achievable Foundation provides an environment that allows patients of all abilities to get the care they need, the Foundation goes a step further. Ibarra and her team are aggressive in working to train the future health care workforce on how to most effectively deal with patients living with intellectual or developmental disabilities. “We want to ensure that people in the workforce have some knowledge and familiarity with people who have limited access to health care,” said Ibarra, who added that the Foundation also focuses on advocacy,

routinely fighting for better policies to address how health care is provided and how barriers to health care can be eliminated. “I was speaking with the mother of a new patient with a disability who had sought care elsewhere and then came to us,” Ibarra said. “After the visit, she said, ‘Wow! You guys get it!’ We knew the right questions to ask and how to ask those questions.” She said much of the Foundation’s success is spending extra time with its patients and being very methodical in how everything from an office visit to a routine physical examination is conducted. “We do a lot of work to get someone comfortable with being examined,” she said. “It’s just the little things that are so normal for you and I, but we take the time to take our patients through it step by step: what happens in the waiting room, what will happen during the exam. Our appointment times are twice the length of traditional appointments.” Unfortunately, studies have shown that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities have poorer health and poorer access to health care. But Ibarra, who lives in Culver City, said she loves her job because her Foundation is working to rectify that every single day. “We really are changing the face of health care,” she said.

D “It feels really good to be a source of offering goodness,” said Jameson, whose Culver City Neighbors magazine highlights a feature story about a local family, resident or couple and everything good happening in the community. “It brings the community and the business owners who service Culver City together.” D The glossy, monthly magazine started by James on in April 2018, is delivered by mail to a targeted readership and is chock full of positive stories highlighting the best Culver City has to offer.

There’s a monthly feature on Culver City Unified School District leaders that showcases the district’s schools and the special people who help them succeed. There’s a section called “In the Line of Duty,” which highlights a Culver City police officer, a Culver City firefighter and a local mail carrier each month. And then there’s “Culver City Shout Out.” “That’s an opportunity for anyone in the community to let everyone know about someone they appreciate – a teacher, a neighbor, a family member. All of our content is written by the people in our community, for the people in our community and about the people in our community,” Jameson said. Of course, the magazine stays alive by selling sponsorships or advertising, the cost of which is even more affordable than direct mail advertising, according to Jameson. But

the real focus of Culver City Neighbors is the neighbor-focused content. “I have some rules about what I will put in the magazine,” she said. “All the content must be educational, compelling, useful and positive. I’m not interested in anything political, negative or controversial.”

“There are 300plus local non-profit organizations out there, and I’m willing to give a platform to any nonprofit who wants to write about what they are doing.” Jameson said she is always looking for more good news to share with her readers and even issued a challenge to local non-profit organizations who want to tell their stories to Culver CityDespite the constant deadline pressure and the hours she invests in making sure every advertisement and every story is perfect, Jameson said she’s really enjoying the latest chapter of her business life. “I’m having such a ball with Culver City Neighbors,” she said. “I just love doing this.”

t just 42, Shant Keoroghlian has already logged nearly a quarter century in the car business. The general manager of Culver City Toyota grew up as a self-described “grease monkey” in a family whose lives centered around cars. D “My father was in the gas station business,” he said. “My brother has a body shop. My brother-in-law has a body shop. I was selling cars when I was in high school. My entire family is in the car business. We all kind of bleed oil.” D Keoroghlian said he continued selling cars in college and eventually gave up the classroom for the showroom. D “I was studying business, and I said to myself, ‘I’m already in business. What more are they going to teach me in college?’” he said. D Today, Keoroghlian oversees 180 associates handling all aspects of the dealership from parts to service to sales, and the store is a major contributor to the Culver City economy. Not only do his employees all spend time and money in the city, but the dealership is one of the top two or three tax generators in the city, Keoroghlian said. “We do about $8 million in revenue a month,” he said. “That’s a lot of tax dollars generated.” Culver City Toyota sells about 400 cars a month, ranking in the top 20 among Toyota dealerships in Southern California. But it does even better in the service department, where it services upwards of 5,000 cars a month, ranking it in the top five among Southern California Toyota dealerships. Sales aside, Keoroghlian said Culver City Toyota’s real secret sauce really is developing a positive relationship with the community.

The dealership is part of the Ken Garff Automotive Group, which has more than 50 stores throughout Utah, Texas, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada and California. The brand slogan is “We Hear You,” and a commitment to customers giving them an exceptional experience. “With our time and investment, we have really changed how people in the community see us,” said Keoroghlian, who added that when the Ken Garff Automotive Group took over six years ago, there was some reputation repair work that needed to be done. “The community bond is key for me. We are really trying to make contributions to local businesses, high school groups, the Exchange Club, the City Council. Partnering

Partnering with the chamber is a big deal.” with the chamber is a big deal.” From supporting local groups to creating a warm, friendly and inviting environment for his customers, Keoroghlian is succeeding in making Culver City Toyota a model dealership. “I’m very community driven,” he said. I believe that any successful business has to give back. And regardless of whether you are buying a car or servicing your car, I want you to feel comfortable stopping by and saying ‘Hi.’ Our coffee is always free.”

MOBILITY & HOUSING While state housing officials are pushing Southern California cities to add upwards of 1.34 million new homes by the end of the decade, cities throughout the region are grappling with the fact that the housing supply is already far behind what’s needed, with a very low vacancy rate, and the housing cost burden far exceeds the national average. D Nowhere is the problem more acute than right here in Culver City, where the state is pushing for the addition of 3,300 new units, and where the city’s housing stock has not nearly kept pace with its explosive job growth, making affordable housing, traffic and mobility a daily struggle for many residents.

Even in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Vice Mayor Alex Fisch said the state won’t slow its all-out push to increase the number of housing units throughout California. “The state is going to keep going,” he said. “People are looking at the data and where coronavirus is spreading, and the correlation is not density, it’s class.” Fisch said viruses like COVID-19 spread more rapidly in places where people are forced by economic realities to live in crowded homes where low-income residents often “double up” with their families. “My wife teaches at East L.A. College, and these are her students,” he said. “Delayed launch, delayed marriage, economic concerns all result in this crowding. Some single-family houses have essentially become apartments – there are locks on all the doors and they are rented out to different families. Situations like those are what Fisch said can be problematic in terms of spreading viruses. “But density and housing done right can address these issues,” he said. Mayor Göran Eriksson said the attitude of the state needs to shift to encouraging more density in areas outside California’s two urban hubs of San Francisco and Los Angeles. “Why should all the jobs be in the Bay Area and L.A.?” he asked. “The state needs to look at policies that encourages companies to locate in places like Merced, Visalia and Fresno. Why does the headquarters of the DMV need to be in Sacramento? Why not locate Cal State universities in other places? Those are things the state controls and everyone would gain. Those areas could become more financially viable, there would be more jobs and more investment and we wouldn’t have more density in the highest population areas.” And while those state decisions will impact cities throughout California, Eriksson said much can be done locally, too. He has long pushed for reducing the minimum size of housing units in Culver City and said that may be one option. The state’s new rules allowing APUs, or mother-in-law units, in single-family residential areas is another. Increasing residential housing on the second level of commercial buildings along business corridors is yet another. “The problem is that we don’t have a consistent vision on housing,” said Eriksson, who added that the city is in many ways becoming a victim of its own success. “We have been very successful in attracting jobs – Amazon, Apple, HBO – but with that comes a responsibility to encourage the development of new housing. We haven’t done our part on that front.” Eriksson added that the problem is even more pronounced because Culver City has no swaths of open land on which to build the thousands of units of new housing forecasts say it needs. “The only thing we can do is repurpose land, and we don’t want to build Cumuluses in our city,” he added, referring to the 30-story high rise on La Cienega just across the border in Los Angeles that includes more than 1,200 residential units. So, if the city does not want to go the route of Manhattan to provide new housing, what options are available? One option is “up-zoning” – a process in which a city revises its zoning code to allow more dense development, even in traditionally single-family neighborhoods. The result is the peppering of two-, three- or even four-unit buildings in areas that currently include only single-family homes. Fisch said that, due to recent statewide legislation, up-zoning has essentially already arrived in the form of ADUs or accessory dwelling units, known colloquially as “granny flats.” “R-1 has had a very sacred role in the American imagination for a long time, but the state law is basically allowing three on a lot on every lot starting in January,” said Fisch,

who said he is not particularly opposed to up-zoning if it means more people can get to the services they need right in their own neighborhood. “If done right, that’s a gentle way to create that 10-minute neighborhood.” But Fisch and Eriksson agree that perhaps the better route for Culver City is to look at its well-traveled and under-developed commercial corridors to provide the housing the city needs. Boulevards like Washington, Culver, Sepulveda and Jefferson are filled largely with single-level commercial buildings that could be more effectively used to provide services such as restaurants and retail at the ground level and residential above. “Someone recently accused me of wanting to convert Culver City to Paris,” Fisch said. “Well, they’re not entirely wrong. We need to create a nucleus and develop a Councilman higher-density village around a place like the train station. That kind of TOD (transit-oriented development) is easy and obvious, but there is probably more support for corridor development: residential above the retail on our major boulevards. But that doesn’t necessarily make for great neighborhoods.” Eriksson said any housing solution the city undertakes will only work if it puts people closer to the places they want to go and closer to the modes of transportation that they need

to get there without having to get in their cars. But in conjunction with the addition of new housing along the city’s main boulevards, Eriksson said it is critical to improve the city’s public transit system and offer more options for people to get out of their cars. “A lot of sophisticated data shows that if you remove just 5 to 10% of the cars from the road, traffic will move at the posted speeds,” said Göran, who added that there are many ways for the city to help encourage the public to meet those numbers. “Some people want to focus on bikes only, but better would be to get people to take public transportation one day a week. If we can do that, everything will flow better. We need to show that buses are a viable alternative.” Eriksson said that while he is a cyclist himself, commuting on two wheels is not always an effective A l e x F i s c h solution for those who are too old or too young or who need to transport things like groceries. A more effective use of the city’s resources, he said, would be to focus on the city’s already successful bus infrastructure. Simple fixes like providing better signage at bus stops; naming stops to breed familiarity and wayfinding; and enhancing the atmosphere of the city’s buses would go a long way toward encouraging people to give buses a try. It seems as though buses and bikes could

“We need to get away from the idea that transit is just for people without any other option, If you could get across town in 20 minutes for a buck seventy-five, people will use that.”

both get attention (and funding) from the city, but those modes each struggle to find space within the city’s built-out infrastructure. “We have such limited rights-of-way, so we need to prioritize,” said Eriksson, who said he would like to see the city explore dedicated bus lanes and reversable bus lanes that would move commuters faster and more efficiently during daily commutes. And while increasing ridership on public transportation would help, it creates other issues, especially in a post-coronavirus world. “Public transit is something we certainly need to figure out in that sense,” said Fisch, adding that he would like to look at smaller, on-demand e-vehicles and even e-bikes. “Those are options but they are too far from the public’s consciousness to be a solution right now.” Culver City Architect Dane Twitchell, who serves on the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Action Committee, said the city must find a place for those who walk and bike, too. “We need a local lanes for bikes, scooters, e-bikes. We need to have a space for them that’s not on the sidewalk and not on the street,” said Twitchell, who added that the city has struggled with how to implement a bike program that is both cost-effective and integrates into the Metro bike-sharing program that is being employed in Los Angeles. Some communities have railed against on-demand, dock-less e-bikes rented from independent companies like Jump or Lime because they are often discarded by riders on random street corners or blocking sidewalks. Twitchell said, instead, the city will move to join the Metro bike-share system in early 2020, adding new docking infrastructure throughout the city. But that program is not without its own challenges. One investigation showed that of the 3,000 taxpayer-funded Metro bikes employed in the City of Los Angeles, nearly 1,000 of the $2,500 bikes have been stolen and/or vandalized. For Twitchell, the best solution comes down to a hybrid of efforts: more bikes and bicycle infrastructure, more housing near where people want to travel and a change in the way the public views buses. “Very few people take the bus,” said Twitchell, who said he is a regular. “I’m often

I @culvercitychamber F @culverchamber L@culverchamber


the oldest, whitest guy on the bus, and that has to change.” Eriksson agreed. “We need people in ties taking the bus to work. We need people to encourage people to get visitors to their house by bus – ‘Take the No. 1 bus, get off at the Sony stop and I live one block from there.’ It’s a cultural issue, and we need to change behavior,” said Eriksson, who added that the city’s bus system is much better than many people realize. “Our buses are clean. We’re finally getting our electronic tracking system up so that more than 40 bus stops will be equipped with screens providing real-time information about when the next bus is coming.” In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, Eriksson added that high-grade filters on buses will help protect drivers and riders – an important element in making buses safer, especially since the city needs to increase ridership not just among those who have no other choice but public transportation but also among those who elect to use it as a viable alternative to driving. “We need to get away from the idea that transit is just for people without any other option,” said Fisch. “If you could get across town in 20 minutes for a buck seventy-five, people will use that.” But even if people get out of their cars and bike, scoot, walk or take the bus to their destinations, the biggest challenge, Fisch said, is putting people close to the jobs and services they use every day so those trips are short, easy and cost-effective. “We have a chance to really lead here in Culver City,” he said. “We need to look at incentives for developers not only to build more housing, but to build the kind of housing that looks and feels like what we want to see in our city.” Some of that can be accomplished through the city’s General Plan Update process, which is already underway. The process will take a comprehensive look at the way the city is zoned and will make recommendations to the City Council about adding density, changing uses and setting up the city’s primary planning document to best situate Culver City for the next 20 years of future development. “One the unique challenges that Culver City faces is that we have great job growth, share

regional issues like homelessness, housing and mobility challenges with our neighboring Los Angeles and don’t have the local real estate to solve it,” said Culver City Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Colin Diaz. “To me that means one thing - we have to make changes with regard to height and density. Yes, the state has forced some of the change with AB 68 but adding some ADUs won’t solve the problem in and of itself. We need to rezone areas along Sepulveda and other retail and commercial hubs to utilize more than the one story that most of these structures currently occupy. Ultimately, we need to develop all levels of housing. Our problem is an inventory one – rather than an affordability. If we build enough housing, the price point will drop because of availability and more people can remain in the City. In doing this, you increase the likelihood that people live and work in Culver City, thus positively impacting the mobility too.” Eriksson added that while much attention has been paid to adding affordable housing, it is critical to find ways to add what he calls “attainable housing” – housing that is attainable for the kinds of employees who will be calling Culver City “home” over the next two decades. “We need more affordable housing – yes. But that cannot be our 100% focus, he said. “The new employees in the new businesses coming to our town will be making $80,000 or $100,000 a year, and that’s not enough to justify $4,000 a month for a one bedroom. We need to address the mid-level of the market.” He added that many young people are willing or even eager to live without a car and get around with just their feet, a bike and public transit, but it is the city’s responsibility to encourage new housing to be built in locations that make that possible. In fact, the COVID-19 outbreak and the resulting “Safer at Home” order proved to a lot of employees and employers that working from home can work. While it may not be an optimum option for everyone, working from home, even a few days a week, would reduce traffic and congestion. “Working from home has certainly gotten a boost,” Fisch said. “But there are challenges to working from home, too. It’s certainly more acceptable to telecommute now, but businesses will still want people in the office for creativity

reasons and productivity reasons.” Striking that balance means putting housing close to where people work and play. Diaz said the age-old real estate adage of “location, location, location” holds true, and if the city wants to ensure housing gets built in the right places, the city needs to work with developers and not against them. “The truth of this is that the city needs to truly embrace its public-private partnership opportunities,” he said. “There are developers out there that can assist us reach some of our goals, but they need to have mutually benefitting incentives that make sense.” Of course, residents who have chosen Culver City for its quiet, tree-lined streets are understandably concerned and wary that new development will mean even more gridlock and tall buildings that will ruin the aesthetic that attracted them to the city in the first place. Nevertheless, state legislators are demanding more housing, and that means more housing is undoubtedly on its way. Rather than allow the state to shove its version of housing down the throats of local residents, Twitchell said it is important for people embrace the realities of the future and work together to find the best ways to implement additional housing. “The biggest problem is NIMBYs, the people who just say ‘no,’” he said. “We’re going to need more density, but we need to be smart about how we do it. We need better design, better architects, and we need the neighbors to be reasonable.” “It’s not a comfortable conversation for most,” said Diaz. “But, it is directly related to affordability, mobility and quality of life. If you couple changes to height and density with micro transit options, you begin to really make a dent in our housing, mobility and affordability crunch. This topic and these conversations have become even more important now among the recent Pandemic.” But while policy makers might see a plan they are willing to embrace, convincing the community will be a different task, altogether. “People, I think, are in the denial phase,” Fisch said. “This is the number of new homes we need to build. This is the backlog. This is the future demand. It’s a painful process figuring out how to be a Culver City with 20% more homes with the charm we all love. It won’t be easy.”

THE GREEN NEW DEAL When Culver City first moved to legalize commercial cannabis establishments in 2017, there was much pushback. D People were concerned about impacts on local neighborhoods. Would “pot shops” just down the street from schools send the wrong message? Would their popularity bring even more gridlock and noise to Culver City streets? Would their arrival mean more crime in a community that has long prided itself on being safer than the seas of Los Angeles that surrounds it? D Still, lured by the promise of additional city tax revenue and the increasing volume of research that shows medical marijuana to be beneficial for everyone from cancer patients to those who suffer from sleep disorders, the city moved forward with an intensive review process to select three operators to open commercial cannabis storefronts within the city limits. D This year, the doors on those establishments are scheduled to open, each working hard to disprove the harmful stereotypes of “stumbling and illiterate” Cheech and Chong-type characters flocking to town.

All three have an impressive background in the industry. Jushi is a multi-state operation with 25 retail licenses from Pennsylvania to Colorado and is publicly traded on the NEO Exchange in Canada. Essence has been a commercial cannabis retailer, distributor, cultivator and producer in Nevada since 2016, operating three high-volume retail stores in the greater Las Vegas area. And Sweetflower, the only truly local company of the three, is Southern California’s largest independent cannabis retailer and currently operates a number of dispensaries in the City of Los Angeles. Jushi Executive VP Trent Woloveck said he is excited about the prospect of doing business in Culver City. “We have gone out and participated in a lot of community events, and we have had nothing but positive feedback,” he said. “The more we can get out and put our best foot forward, the more people will see what we are all about.” Dodd said he believes Culver City is special. “I love Culver City and have worked with and built businesses in Culver City since 2008 in my prior career in media and advertising,” he said. “The choice to locate not just our dispensary, but our entire corporate office here, was simple. Culver City’s values mirror Sweet Flower’s, and we are proud and humbled to work here day in, day out, as we have been since October 2018. Culver City is unique in its forward-thinking town planning, in the depth of its community engagement and community fabric, and in its artistic and creative influences. We want to be

a good neighbor, a good corporate citizen and community member.” All three retailers are among the industry’s most intriguing and enterprising brands, focusing more on the wellness benefits than the buzz, offering specially-formulated blends of THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids that promise to relieve pain, hone mental focus or increase sexual desire. As legalization of cannabis spreads across the nation, the stigma caused by 80 years of criminalization is changing and is reflected by the fact that more people than ever are taking an interest in the plant’s medical benefits. The most common use for medical marijuana in the United States is for pain control. While marijuana isn’t strong enough for severe pain, like post-surgical pain or a broken bone, it is quite effective for the chronic pain that plagues millions of Americans, especially as they age. Part of its allure is that it is clearly safer than opiates – it is impossible to overdose on and far less addictive. It can easily take the place of NSAIDs such as Advil or Aleve, if people can’t take them due to problems with their kidneys or ulcers or GERD. In particular, marijuana appears to ease the pain of multiple sclerosis, and nerve pain in general. This is an area where few other options exist, and those that do, such as Neurontin, Lyrica, or opiates are highly sedating. Patients claim that marijuana allows them to resume their previous activities without feeling completely out of it and disengaged. Along these lines, marijuana is said to be a

fantastic muscle relaxant, and people swear by its ability to lessen tremors in Parkinson’s disease and successfully help suffers of fibromyalgia, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and most other conditions where the final common pathway is chronic pain. Because the reason people use cannabis products is as varied as the products themselves, the three Culver City retailers are focused on providing education and guidance so that customers know the difference between a tincture and an oil or an edible and a flower. “It’s important to reiterate that Essence began as a medicinal-only brand, and that one of our top priorities is ensuring that those who most need and deserve access to cannabis for therapeutic benefit are able to get it,” Yemenidjian said. “How one consumes cannabis is highly personal, and we strive to have just the right product to meet each unique guest’s needs—from first‐timers to seasoned connoisseurs. Our staff are trained to be emotionally sensitive and product knowledgeable, resulting in an exceptional and pleasant customer experience, every time.” Part of that pleasant customer experience is shopping for cannabis in a clean, sleek and hip building that looks more like the Apple store than the smoke-filled head shops of the past. “The way we envision this store is a beautiful glass structure that has solar paneling on the top to be able to make it a LEED-compliant building,” Jushi founder and president Erich Mauff recently told the Culver City News. “We plan to have a lot of natural vegetation, and a beautiful living ESSENCE

tree in the middle of the building.” Mauff said the focus on compliance does not have to negatively impact the aesthetics of the building. “Compliance is critical, but within that, you can still have a lovely aura,” he said. “For Essence, it’s about more than selling cannabis,” Yemenidjian said. “It’s about delivering unique – and best‐in class – experiences. The foundation of the Essence brand is built on our diverse leadership team’s vast experience, our dedication to unmatched customer service aimed toward restoring individual health and happiness and our unwavering commitment to corporate social responsibility and community engagement.” Even before the cash register rings, the area is already reaping the benefits of retail cannabis operations. Essence, for example, has already put its money where its mouth is, donating to five local non-profit groups, including Upward Bound House, where that money will be used towards furnishing living spaces for homeless families and the planned expansion of its Healthy Living Farm Program. “For our community, SweetFlower will be providing local job fairs (in addition to the three we have already had in Culver City for our other local stores), a recycling program, and community volunteer hours for all our team,” Dodd said. “We have already made significant contributions of time, resources and money to a host of local charities, including Upward Bound house, Culver City Performing Arts, CCUSD and a number of non-profits via the Chamber, and we look forward to doing more in 2020 and beyond.” At the end of the day, the success of city’s cannabis experiment will hinge on how well the three operators selected by the city perform, not just in terms of their bottom lines, but also as they interact with the community around them. “Cannabis still carries with it a stigma that we are doing something bad,” Dodd said. “Only by being here in Culver City every day, in being trusted and transparent, in focusing on community engagement, public health and safety, and in hiring diversely and inclusively can we make inroads to counter this stigma. And we need to remember that operating in any community is a privilege, particularly a community as unique as Culver City.”

Through its Academy of Visual and Performing Arts, CCUSD is helping to provide a steady pipeline of well-educated graduates to entertainment and tech companies such as Sony Pictures Entertainment, Apple, Amazon and more – students that have real, hands-on experience in the industries in which they want to be employed. In addition, the district offers not only an incredible education for those interested in pursuing higher education goals but has also developed a series of career pathways that give students real, hands-on experience in careers ranging from sports medicine to architecture to coding. Culver City’s private institutions such as Turning Point School, The Willows Community School and Echo Horizon School, also provide a unique focus on arts education that goes on to create well-rounded and more successful students.

Few small cities are as well-equipped to provide their residents with a healthy environment than Culver City. From creating recreational opportunities to providing high-quality health care to helping their residents adopt a healthy lifestyle, Culver City does it all. Our city is filled with expansive parks, a varied city recreation program and a business community that caters to the health and medical needs of its residents. D The City of Culver City oversees a park system that includes 13 parks and parkettes in every corner of the community. Each park is different and offers unique activities and facilities, so whether you’re seeking a place to barbecue, hold a picnic, swim or play everything from basketball and tennis to softball and soccer, there’s a place for you. In addition, many Culver City parks offer age-appropriate playground areas, pooch paths and jogging paths. Some parks even include night lighting so the fun can continue even after the sun goes down.

This includes a dedicated path along Culver Boulevard and connectivity to the Ballona Creek Bike Path, which follows the channelized Ballona Creek for seven miles from Syd Kronenthal Park in east Culver City to the Pacific Ocean, and there connects with the Santa Monica Beach and South Bay Bike Path. In addition, Culver City is updating its bicycle and pedestrian plan, which has already seen the city add five miles of new bike lanes, even more sharrows, dozens of crosswalk improvements and safer routes to school.

ENTERTAINMENT

If recent developments are any indication, it’s Culver City’s time in the Southern California sun. While many agencies and creative companies have called the area home for years, the buzz around it is palpable due, in large part, to the recent announcements that both Apple and Amazon are putting their content businesses here. And why not? D Culver City has grown from a sleepy “company town” that provided the workforce for the motion picture and aerospace industries into a city experiencing a renaissance with scores of things to do and see. Originally, much like surrounding downtown Culver City, the former Culver Theater was a key part of classic Hollywood’s thriving entertainment community. Over time, the theater became dilapidated, tired and worn. Today, the Culver, renamed the Kirk Douglas Theatre, operates as a performing arts center and playhouse that has become a magnet for some of the area’s most unique and successful performances. For more information about what performances are coming to the Kirk Douglas, visit www.centertheatregroup.org.

Culver City is home to 14 contemporary and fine art galleries with several more located just over the border in the City of Los Angeles. Most of the galleries are located in the Culver City Arts District along Washington and La Cienega Boulevards. For more about various art shows and exhibits in that area, please visit culvercityartsdistrict.com. In addition, Culver City is home to many prominent performing arts organizations presenting, which present performances and educational programs throughout the City. From the Actors’ Gang, the resident company at the Ivy Substation; and the Culver City Symphony HELMS SHOPS Orchestra to the New American Theatre and Pacifico Dance Company, there is no shortage of cultural opportunities in and around the city. For those who love to shop, the search for that must-have item can be as fun as roaming through a studio lot. Culver City offers shoppers a bounty of options. The city is filled with unique one-of-a-kind shops that offer the highest level of customer service and high-quality products. From Lundeen’s, where you can find unique gift items, to The Platform, a retail and restaurant hub that has attracted such unique shops as Bird Brooklyn, Modern Society and Tom Dixon, Culver City’s Downtown offers discerning shoppers a little bit of everything: home and baby goods, art galleries and all things in between at unique and enchanting shops within the quaint confines of downtown Culver City. (downtownculvercity.com) But the rest of the city has much to offer as well. Following its recent $170 million renovation, Westfield Culver City is a 1 million-squarefoot retail attraction featuring a dynamic blend of 130 national retailers, local and new boutique concepts and a multitude of dining options. Culver City is also home to a wide variety of national and regional retail and grocery outlets ranging from Costco to Trader Joe’s, but it is best known for harboring those oneof-a-kind secrets known only to the locals. On Sepulveda Boulevard, Sorrento Italian Market has been a Culver City institution since it was founded in 1963. A true old-world deli and market, Sorrento is the kind of place where you can find everything from a tasty, freshly made sandwich to that hard-tofind chianti imported directly from Italy. On Washington Boulevard, you’ll find Copenhagen Pastry, billed as the first authentic Danish pastry shop in town. The spot offers fresh-baked delights such as coffee bread, apricot macaroons and Napoleon hats -- a small dark chocolate-dipped cake with a cookie base and a filling of pure almond paste. Yum! Another Culver City gem is the Helms Bakery District on East Washington Boulevard, an historical Los Angeles destination with award-winning restaurants and a unique collection of design and home furnishings stores. Peruse extraordinary furniture and fine rugs as H.D. Buttercup, where in-house designers offer a bespoke experience to help bring your home to life.

It’s the visionary oversight of the Chamber Board of Directors that guides the work of the Chamber staff and volunteers. This group of business professionals may have varying levels of connection to the city, but they and the entire Chamber team share this commitment to growing Culver City’s vibrant business community and ensuring economic vitality for years to come.

As it relates to the Chamber of Commerce, a third of the City’s non-profit organizations find a home as investing members. The synergy of marketing, alignment and platform serve these members well and provide an outlet to share the non-profits’ message and good works. From health and wellness-centered organizations (such as the Achievable Foundation, L.A. Goal, and Westside Regional Center) to the education and safety focused (such as the Culver City Education Foundation, Mychal’s Learning Place and Walk & Rollers) to civically-driven ones (such as the Exchange Club, Rotary and Kiwanis) to those experiential-based (such as the Wende Museum, Downtown Business Association, and the Culver City Public Theater), Culver City truly has a vast population of non-profits. There are many elements that make Culver City a unique community. The location and proximity to LAX, the City of Los Angeles and

There are many elements that make Culver City a unique community. The location and proximity to LAX, the City of Los Angeles and the Westside.

CULVER CITY IS A VERY SERVICE AND PURPOSE DRIVEN COMMUNITY Some say that a community can be judged by its level of service, community and stewardship. Few entities embody this combination of traits more than a nonprofit. Often, they serve as the backbone and core heartbeat of a community. Their commitment to the well-being and livability in a community are key for many of a city’s residents. Culver City is no different. Though a mere 5.1 square miles long, Culver City is home to more than 160 non-profit organizations. 54 I

the Westside. Westside; the strong local services, such as our police and fire departments; our award-winning schools and engaged residents. And yet, the one current that seems to run through all of this is the overall commitment to service and servitude. It is the one constant that has remained in Culver City regardless of the economic climate, growth and expansion, and will continue to be a hallmark for what makes Culver City such a beautiful place to work, live and visit. For those that are new to the rich culture of Culver City, the next few pages should serve as a snapshot into the expansive non-profit community. From the contact information and scope of service, you will have the opportunity to both learn about and get engaged with a number of non-profits and leave your imprint in the service-based community that many call home.
