  • With the start of daylight savings time this weekend, we all sprung forward. And hopefully, we also remembered to check our smoke detectors. But if that is all the emergency preparation you have done lately, you might not be ready when you need to. Fortunately, the LA City website has resources to support our emergency preparedness.

  • With a few storms recently, it seems that we're getting a taste of winter after a warm January. But whether you like the cold or look forward to the summer sun, it's easy to appreciate the rain. But as wet as it seems to get, we're still in a drought and well behind our yearly averages for precipitation. Read More

Another NoHo Community Cleanup

On April 11, our Neighborhood Council joined with Councilmember Paul Krekorian's office for another neighborhood cleanup.

More than 50 high school volunteers volunteered their Saturday morning to make a difference in their neighborhood. And after a quick breakfast snack and some inspiring words, they set out for Sherman Way and Laurel Canyon to tackle some of the worst and most public streets in our Council area.

The streets and sidewalks near this intersection have long been a difficult area to keep tidy, and the Council has devoted a few cleanup efforts to improving them. It is an ironic twist that each cleanup finds less trash and debris in this area, but it's more noticeable since it also stands out that much more. And by repeatedly cleaning the same area, we're showing people in the community that a former eyesore can be a clean place, encouraging everyone to help keep it that way.

A special thanks for support goes to Yasser Durghalli and Handy Mart Liquor on Laurel Canyon north of Strathern. The very good Mr Durghalli, as a strong and respected community business leader, donated all of the water at the cleanup event. The support of our neighbors like this helps bring us together to make our corner of the city a better place.

This also represents our last major scheduled cleanup for the fiscal year. We haven't decided on the time and location for the next one, but it will probably be after our new fiscal year starts in July. If you have any suggestions about an area in our Council that needs a small army of volunteers, be sure to let us know. You can contact us through this website, or attend one of our Board meetings or a meeting of the Outreach Committee.
