According to an announcement from NBBA, the group has enlisted the help of LAANE (Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy), which agreed to help research and review the permitting documents filed by Walmart with LA County, but it will cost money. NBBA has put forth a $300 deposit to start the research, but must raise $2,500 total for the project.
"LAANE will let us pay in installments, but we have to raise the money quickly so the researcher can get started," the announcement said. If you can help, NBBA says, send a check payable to LAANE (which is tax deductible) to:
LAANE Research, c/o Monica Hubbard
1843 Pepper Dr.,
Please put "NBBA Research" in the memo line of the check. The donations need to be recorded by NBBA before they're turned over to LAANE.
