  • 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

Slope and New Mural Recognized

On the evening of March 12th, the Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils, the oldest and largest Council alliance in the City, held an anniversary event. And as Council members from across the Valley ate, met each other, and listened to some excellent speakers, awards were presented for achievements during the year. Our own Neighborhood Council, along with our neighbors at the North Hollywood West Council, were recognized for "Best Collaborative Project to Instill Community Pride" for our work towards the new Vintage North Hollywood Mural.

For the past several years, our Council has worked with North Hollywood West and the office of Councilmember Paul Krekorian to clean and improve the Whitsett slope. Once an eyesore of overgrown weeds and trash, today the area on Whitsett north of Sherman Way near Saticoy is planted with local vegetation and hosts one of the largest public murals in the City, and certainly one of the newest. Visible from the 170 freeway, the Vintage North Hollywood mural reflects the history of our community, from old agriculture to a tribute to Nudie Taylor, designer for the rhinestone cowboy craze.

As a Neighborhood Council, we are proud to have made this long-standing commitment to positive change in our community, especially when it has brought together our community with many volunteer efforts over the years and strengthened the bond between Neighborhood Councils and our Councilmember. It is by working together that we can achieve great things, and that was the recognition of this award. We appreciate everyone who has lent a hand and supported this work with us, and thank in advance all of those who will join us in the years to come as we do more for our community.
