A Message From Our CEO
Thanks to Our Renewing Members
West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has been a strong and successful organization with a variety of programs and events designed to benefit the business community and it’s Membership. It has shared many successes along with some difficult times in its 90-year history. The past couple years of hard economic times has forced the Chamber and its business community to reevaluate business strategies, marketing and programming.
9-15-10 through 1-15-11
We are not alone. Businesses and Chambers across the country have similar experiences with new demands from constituents for what their businesses require to remain operational. We are seeing a new trend and a shift in how Chambers provide value for their members and how to assist commerce to thrive in their communities. The Chamber has utilized the same methods for many years to great success. With the world’s new economic structure, our organization now seeks new concepts and demands from our business sectors to meet these new trends. Besides providing a strong voice in advocacy and political action, we are developing and implementing exciting promotions and programs highlighted inside these pages of West Hollywood WORKS.

“In one of the most diverse and progressive cities in the nation, the Chamber acts as a central resource for the facilitation
of business goals, upcoming issues that may impact business and also a source of information to help conduct and operate a successful business in West Hollywood. More than all this, the chamber has a fantastic open door policy and is refocused on providing a measurable return on the fees by acting as a sales and referral conduit to members, making it a marketing expense not a resource expense and therefore setting it apart from other chambers. --- Michael Berman, O-Bar Restaurant

Governmental Affairs & Business Advocacy West Hollywood to Implement “No Smoking” Ordinance for Outdoor Dining Areas In December 2009, the City Council directed the City Attorney to draft a comprehensive ordinance prohibiting smoking in outdoor patios and open air spaces. After a year-long debate and participation on a Task Force convened by City Manager and comprised of individuals from the community concerned with this issue, the Council introduced “An Ordinance of the City of West Hollywood to prohibit smoking in outdoor dining and other public areas” on February 7, 2011 at the West Hollywood City Council meeting. (Please note: at the time this article was written, January 28, 2011, the Council had not yet adopted this ordinance.) The West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce took part on the task force to help shape an ordinance which we hoped would have the least amount of fiscal impact to our Members and were able to accomplish a few compromises in the proposed draft staff recommendation. Staff report to Council recommended the following: • Outdoor dining areas of restaurants will be included, but outdoor areas of bars and nightclubs will be exempt from the smoking prohibition. • Restaurants with varying operating characteristics in the late evening will be permitted to create smoking operation plans that allow for a designated smoking area as long as no food is served and the space has an adequate 5-foot buffer from the non-smoking area. • The two hookah cafes and two existing private clubs currently located in the City will be exempt from the smoking prohibition. Restaurants may submit a Smoking Operations Plan for City review and approval outlining when and where smoking is allowed at a particular business and how and where signs will be erected identifying no smoking and smoking areas.
The City Council directed its staff to develop an anti-smoking education campaign and explore an incentive plan that would encourage businesses that are exempt from the ordinance to prohibit smoking in their establishments. The City will also work with the region’s leading health care agencies and social services providers to inform the community about smoking cessation programs and literature. The timeline for the implementation of this proposed Ordinance will be January 1, 2012. To download the full draft ordinance in PDF format go to http://www.weho.org/index.aspx?recordid=590&page=23
Santa Monica Boulevard Businesses Desire to Formulate Business Improvement District Businesses along Santa Monica Boulevard, between Doheny and La Cienega, and the adjacent side streets along the Boulevard, have been in discussions about the formation of a Business Improvement District, also known as a BID. The process has been spearheaded by consulting firm CIVITAS who specializes in the development of BIDS. CIVITAS has taken a steering committee comprised of Santa Monica Blvd. business owners and community members, through the process of what a BID is, how it is managed and funded, and how it is operated once formulated. Through the help of CIVITAS and the City of West Hollywood, the steering committee has been actively reaching out to the business community to inform them of the advantages of a potential BID. BIDs are aimed at increasing business activity and are a stable funding source for organizations and business owners to improve their business district.
Owners within the boundaries of the district work together to make significant improvements, attract customers, and develop the area. Funding comes from an assessment placed on business owners within the district and may be formulated and quantified through varying methods. The amount of the assessment is determined by the business owners at the formation process within legal guidelines. Funds raised must be spent within the district for the sole benefit of the businesses paying the assessment and cannot be diverted to government programs. Currently the City of West Hollywood has two other geographic BIDs: The Avenues: Art, Design & Fashion District and the Sunset Strip Business Association. Both BIDs have been successful in collectively marketing and promoting their business districts. *Excerpts taken from CIVITAS materials 17
