Along with his billboard motions today, City Council President Eric Garcetti introduced a motion to create an Echo Park Film District "to help promote cooperation between film companies and the neighborhood’s local businesses and residents," as a press release states. "The creation of the Echo Park Film District would set special conditions and guidelines to give the surrounding community and the City Council office more information and notice about productions in Echo Park neighborhood. The guidelines would also prohibit the use of certain areas for filming, such as city parking lots which was harming local businesses." The full presser can be read here.
