Clean Streets Challenge

Sun, 11/12/2017 | 9:00am - 12:00pm
Chase Bank Parking Lot - 10050 Riverside Drive

Clean Streets Challenge LA is gearing up and we need your help!

This challenge is a city-wide effort to clean up LA streets while encouraging the utilization of the MyLA311 app & 311 service.

Since it's a competition, a small amount of money to beautify our neighborhood can be won (last year we won $1250 towards beautifying our community), but we don't find out this year's amount until we put in our application through.

We'll be hosting a community clean up on Sunday, November 12th starting at 9am at the Chase Bank at 10116 Riverside Dr. From here we'll be cleaning our Greater Toluca Lake neighborhood until 12pm.

Joining us will be a few LA City Sanitation employees, plus we'll have tools on hand generously borrowed from the Department of Public Works!

Bring the kids, ask some friends, or just come by yourself! Join us in the 2017 Clean Streets Challenge on 11/12!

Challenge starts 11/12 and ends 11/30

Orange Line Transit Neighborhood Plans

Wed, 11/15/2017 | 6:00pm - 8:30pm
Van Nuys City Hall - 14410 Sylvan Street, Council Chamber, 2nd Floor, Van Nuys, CA 91401

The LA Department of City Planning's Transit Neighborhood Plans (LATNP) program will be holding two community open houses where staff will share initial concepts for the transit neighborhoods near five Orange Line stations: North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Sepulveda, Reseda, and Sherman Way.

The planning effort includes proposed changes to zoning, land use, and urban design standards for select properties generally within 1/2-mile radius of the transit stations. A small portion of the study area falls within the boundaries of your Neighborhood Council district, and may be considered for land use or zone changes. Any proposals at this time are preliminary, and there will be many opportunities at the upcoming meetings and future meetings to provide feedback.
