The Westwood Neighborhood Council decided to increase its council members’ terms from two years to four years. This move raises questions of the feasibility of students being able to take part in the council, as the four year commitment could require students to stay back in Westwood after graduating. What do you think about this issue?
  • The council should return back to its two year terms as four year terms limit student participation and thus representation on the neighborhood council. (81%, 188 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not represented in the options above. (9%, 20 Votes)
  • The term limit change will not have any notable effect on student’s ability to participate on the council. (5%, 12 Votes)
  • The council’s decision to extend terms is wise as it reduces election costs and allows for more funds to be channeled into the neighborhood. (5%, 11 Votes)

“Last month, some UC Berkeley student groups pushed to relocate their school’s multicultural center, raising questions of UCLA’s own lack of such a facility. What do you think about UCLA getting a multicultural center of its own?”
  • UCLA does not need such a center as the Community Programs Office already serves student groups for event planning and resources. (41%, 96 Votes)
  • UCLA needs a multicultural center, as it would make collaborative event programming easier for student groups while promoting dialogue about difference in thought. (37%, 87 Votes)
  • UCLA does not need such a center, but there should be more collaboration between different student groups. (17%, 41 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (5%, 13 Votes)

The Westwood Parks Advisory board plans to open a dog park at the Westwood Recreation Center near Santa Monica Boulevard. The park would replace playground equipment originally at the Center. What do you think about this?
  • I have not heard about this dog park and the Westwood Parks Advisory board needs to better publicize information about it. (38%, 114 Votes)
  • The dog park would be an asset to pet owners in the Westwood neighborhood. (37%, 111 Votes)
  • The dog park should not be built as it would be of little use to pet owners and the broader Westwood community. (15%, 44 Votes)
  • I have feelings about this issue that are not expressed in the options above. (10%, 30 Votes)
