Police Academy

Scope and Content

The Los Angeles Police Department established a Police Academy in Elysian Park in the mid 1920s. What began as a private shooting range for officers evolved into the LAPD's main training campus. Since the late 1960s, the CCSEP has been involved in several battles to preserve the Park from the physical expansion of the Police Academy as well as related activities such as terminating the illegal use of Elysian Park for the training of police helicopter pilots, challenging in court the building of a police firing simulator range in the park, challenging the building of police classrooms adjacent to the park, etc. This series contains court transcripts, information on propositions and bonds, environmental impact reports, and ephemera related to the Committee's involvement with the Police Academy and the LAPD.

Roads and Highways

Scope and Content

This series chiefly concerns CCSEP's objection to a proposal to take away parkland for the widening of the Pasadena Freeway between the Golden State Freeway and Hill Street. The plan would require demolition of natural landscape as well as an eight-foot wide walkway which runs parallel to the freeway with several stairways. The series contains petitions, court documents, correspondence, and ephemera regarding the freeway-widening proposal and tree-planting issues.

Dept. of Water and Power

Scope and Content

Beginning in the 1980s, the CCSEP began a decades-long battle with the Department of Water and Power (DWP) over several issues documented in this series. One was the DWP's proposal to cover up the 55-million gallon Elysian Reservoir with an aluminum roof as part of a water quality improvement project. The series consists of environmental impact reports, petitions, and court documents related to the reservoir roof project, as well as documents concerning the DWP's proposal to take over a portion of the former Buena Vista reservoir site for a pumping and chlorination station.

Oil Lease

Scope and Content

While the CCSEP was challenging the building of a convention center in Elysian Park, they were also opposing the leasing of 77 acres of park land for oil exploration by Occidental Petroleum. In a 1965 petition to City Council (Box 5), Grace E. Simons (for CCSEP) compared the plight of Elysian Park to that of other parks which had suffered from recent development such as Hancock Park with the erection of L.A. County's art museum. A copy of the oil lease is also in this box along with the Superior Court document of the lawsuit between Grace E. Simons et al, and the City of Los Angeles, Occidental Petroleum, and a host of individuals and government entities. The result of the litigation process was that Occidental Petroleum cancelled its plans to drill for oil in the park. The four folders in this series consist of the court documents, correspondence, and ephemera related to this case.

Convention Center and Oil Lease

Scope and Content

In 1965 and 1966, the Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park were fighting two battles simultaneously: the city's proposal to build a convention center on park land, and the plans by Occidental Petroleum to drill for oil. This series contains ephemera, newsletters, and signed petitions regarding both issues at the same time.

Convention Center

Scope and Content

This series documents the newly-formed CCSEP's efforts to block the City Council's proposal to build a new Los Angeles Convention Center in the heart of Elysian Park near the corner of Stadium Way and Scott Avenue. The plan, backed by then-Mayor Sam Yorty, would have cost $10 million dollars and taken away 63 acres of the park-- in addition to contributing to the noise and congestion already supplied by nearby Dodger Stadium. The CCSEP rallied public support by mailing letters to City Hall, publicizing the plight of the park in the media, and receivng a visit from Supreme Court Justice William Douglas who urged his support for retaining the site for recreation. In August of 1966, the CCSEP claimed victory, and the City selected 31 acres at Pico and Figueroa as the convention center's new home. Contained in this series are sixteen folders of letters, legal documents, petitions, press clippings, and other papers related to the proposed building of the convention center in Elysian Park. There is some overlap of issues and types of materials with the preceding series which also deals with the oil lease battle.

Charter Amendment

Scope and Content

The five files in this series document the Committee's battle to defeat several amendments between 1969 and 1977 that would revise L.A.'s city charter and centralize power in the City Council. Beginning in 1969, the CCSEP opposed a ballot measure that would (1) place independent city departments under the control of the Council and the Mayor; and (2) reduce the commissions from policy-making to advisory bodies. The fear was that Elysian Park and other parks and recreation areas would no longer be protected by the charter and would be demoted to the status of "surplus land." The series contains correspondence, clippings, ephemera on various ballot measures ("no on 4," no on "U," "no on 1," etc.), and articles.
Box 6, Folder 1-5

Miscellaneous 1968-1970

 

Chavez Ravine

Scope and Content

The two folders in this series contain information on the Chavez Ravine Arboretum and the proposal for the Chavez Ravine Memorial project. The folder on the arboretum has information on the trees in Elysian Park as well as a short history of the arboretum. The folder on the proposed memorial has a color print-out of Stephen Farley's proposed memorial and a videotape sent to Sallie Neubauer (2000) from Sherilyn Mentes regarding a similar memorial wall in Tucson.

Day Care Center

Scope and Content

The three folders that comprise this series contain information regarding the proposed plan to convert the Elysian Park Recreation Center into a child care center administered by the Board of Education. The CCSEP asked that the Board rescind its decision to make available the Center as a day care center for children of City employees, inasmuch as neighborhood children--many of whom having working mothers and are members of minority races-- would be excluded. The materials in this series consist of much correspondence between Grace E. Simons and city council members and other relevant entities, articles, and newsletters.
Box 6, Folder 8-10

Miscellaneous 1971 - 1972

 

Dodger Stadium

Scope and Content

This series consists of agreements, payment schedules, and memorandums between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the city of Los Angeles regarding the transfer of 300 acres of park land for the stadium in 1959, and subsequent agreements related to a 40-acre parcel adjacent to Dodger Stadium which the Dodgers later turned into a parking lot.
Box 6, Folder 11

Payments 1970 - 1980

 

Irrigation

Scope and Content

This series concerns the topic of an irrigation system in Elysian Park and the necessity of budgeting funds for it. Much of the material in this series consists of correspondence between Grace E. Simons and various local officials and councilmen, newsletters, articles, and newspaper clippings of fires in the area.

Stolport 1969

Scope and Content

This series documents the Committee's successful efforts to prevent a STOLport (Short-Takeoff-and-Landing) from being built at or near Elysian Park. Materials include correspondence among and between CCSEP and the organizations involved in the proposal of the STOLport including the Federal Aviation Administration, the 13th district Councilman, then-councilman Thomas Bradley, the Board of Recreation and Parks commissioners, the Los Angeles Police Department, and an acoustical engineer. This series also documents a related topic from around the same time period: the LAPD's plans for a heliport for the training of police helicopter pilots. In their research into both of these projects, the CCSEP kept a large file of correspondence and articles just on noise pollution, also part of this series.

Proposition A Funding 1988-1993

Scope and Content

This small series concerns Proposition A, the Safe Neighborhood Park Acts of 1992 for the acquisition of various properties and grants to non-profit organizations throughout Los Angeles County. The CCSEP was in support of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy's efforts to apply for funding for several different projects including enhancing land along the Los Angeles River. Part of the funds would go towards developing a connecting trail between the historic Pueblo de Los Angeles, Elysian, and Griffith Parks-- a route that most likely was traced by explorers Portola and de Anza. Materials include correspondence, memorandums, articles, and a proposal coordinated by the National Park Service titled, The Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail. Original letters of support include those of County Board of Supervisors Yvonne Brathwaite Burke, Gloria Molina, and Michael D. Antonovich.

Scope and Content

The two folders of this series contain newsletters, correspondence, and ephemera concerning the tule elk, including correspondence from the Committee for the Preservation of the Tule Elk. There is a good deal of information conerning a joint resolution to establish the Tule Elk National Wildlife Refuge. The goal was to raise the number of Tule Elk in the Owens Valley to 2000 (from around 300) and to "enhance the recreational opportunities of the area which are compatible with pure water and watershed protection." Materials consist of correspondence, articles, reports, and ephemera.

Press Releases 1965-1966

Scope and Content

The eleven folders in this series contain newspaper clippings, press releases, speeches, newsletters, and ephemera publicizing the concerns and activities of the CCSEP. Though the CCSEP Newsletter is represented all the way to 2002, the bulk of these materials date to the 1960s and 1970s. The CCSEP Newsletter is possibly the best overall instrument in the collection for studying the history of the CCSEP over time, as there is a fairly complete run of it from the mid-1960s to 2002 and it is all together in one folder, in chronological order. Another file of interest is that of the KNX and KNXT editorials-- copies of the broadcasts primarily from 1965 and 1966 when there was much public debate regarding the erection of a convention center in Elysian Park.
 

Clippings

Scope and Content

This series consists solely of newspaper clippings, primarily on two different topics. One folder--and the bulk of the series--contains dozens of newspaper clippings from the Los Angeles Times having to do with the 1965 Los Angeles riots in Watts. It is not clear why this particular file was saved with the CCSEP records, except that the topic evidently was of much interest to Grace Simons, who was the keeper of all the Committee's records until her death.
The other major topic represented in the clippings is the two fires that consumed approximately 300 acres of Elysian Park in the Buena Vista Reservoir area in 1981. There is only one newspaper story included in the file, along with a typed report of the fire prepared by Richard Ginevan, Chief Park Maintenance Supervisor, and a photostat of a "fire progress report" from September of that year. Because these items were kept together in their own folder, separate from other clippings, they were left that way in the processing of the collection.
The clippings file from the 1970s contains a few articles on issues very relevant to the concerns of the CCSEP: the Police Academy's presence in the Park, Mayor Sam Yorty vetoing a ban on oil drilling, etc.
The one clipping in the 1990s file is a "letter to the editor" (Los Angeles Times) from Sallie Neubauer, president of CCSEP at the time, concerning the issue of building an NFL stadium in Elysian Park.
