Fight Against Illegal Donation Bins Moves Forward

President Moscoso Helps Turn On New Traffic Light
Council President Ernie Moscoso joined City Council Member Paul Krekorian to turn on the new traffic signal at the intersection of Lankershim and Valerio. As a popular pedestrian crossing, this intersection has long been a dangerous place to walk or drive, but that all changed on November 5th.

Facebook Confusion on Road to Resolution
The Council has had a Facebook page for a while, but it has been suffering an identity crisis. There were two Facebook pages called North Hollywood North East Neighborhood Council, and we never had control over the other one. Because of the same name, many people have been liking and friending the wrong page. Since there is not much we can do about that 'other' page, we're improving ours. The official name for our Facebook page is NHNENC.org, same as our website. It's shorter, cleaner, and easy to remember. And best of all, there's less confusion.
