WNC at the Parade

WNC at Memorial Day Parade 2014

On Memorial Day, Monday, May 26th, several members of the Winnetka NC, and some of their little ones (three smiling kids and a happy dog) marched along Sherman Way in the annual Canoga Park/West Hills Chamber of Commerce Memorial Day Parade.

As the parade now includes Winnetka, the Council entered a parade vehicle for the first time. The Council’s delegation marched along the parade route very near the end of the queue carrying brooms and dustpans to encourage parade-goers to clean up their community and to promote the Council's upcoming First Annual Spring Clean on Saturday, May 31st, starting at Quimby Park.

WNC Gets Street Repairs

Sidewalk repairs to Mason

Bill Candlish of LABSS worked with the WNC to identify needed street repairs and reports that 891 repairs were made by three pothole trucks in May 2014. They repaired sidewalks on both sides of Mason Ave between Saticoy and Victory. In June they will schedule another day to continue the work on Mason between Saticoy and Nordhoff.

Metro to Evaluate Need for Restrooms

The Daily News reported on November 20 that the LA Metropolitan Transportation Authority panel approved a study looking into issues caused by a lack of restrooms on the Orange Line stop in Winnetka.

Residents and businesses located along the city’s bus and rail lines have voiced concerns that alleyways and walkways along busy routes have become default bathrooms for riders, creating unsanitary conditions.

The Winnetka Neighborhood Council, representing neighbors who live near the Orange Line’s Pierce College stop, sent a letter in June to school officials, Metro and other elected and appointed officials who have a hand in monitoring the vast system, complaining of human waste and trash that has littered the surrounding area since the station opened, often from well-heeled riders.

Orange Line

WNC has discussed and investigated a concern regarding public defecation by Orange Line riders behind homes on Winnetka Ave near the Winnetka / Victory Park & Ride. We involved members of the Department of Public Works, Bureau of Street Services.

We determined that Pierce College is the owner of the Park & Ride and Metro owns the Orange Line. On June 10, 2013, we sent a letter to Pierce College recommending installation of at least one port-a-potty to address this problem.

PLUM Weighs In On 20460 Sherman Way

The Planning and Land Use Committee met in August and heard a revised proposal for the property at 20460 Sherman Way. Twenty stakeholders were present and expressed concern that the revised proposal does not address previously raised concerns. The new proposal increases the height of the building and the number of units. The planned use had been senior housing; the revised planned use is market based residential rental units. The PLUM committee sent a letter of concern to the South Valley Planning Commission. The board sent a letter after the September 2013 meeting. And as of September 12, 2013 Councilmember Bluemenfield's Office indicates that he cannot come out in support of the project hearing such community concern. UPDATE: Councilmember Blumenfield stated at the November 12, 2013 meeting that he put a stop to the proposal in its current format. Read a report on the Planning Commission hearing from September 12, 2013.

Mayor Tours Winnetka

WNC President Eric Lewis dines with Mayor Garcetti

In May, WNC President Eric Lews joined CD3 NC Presidents and Chairs, the Presidents of the area's Chambers of Commerce, and a few others for a lunch hosted by Councilman Blumenfield. Mayor Garcetti was the guest of honor as he was touring CD3 that day. He visited Winnetka and took a look at "the pit" at Sherman Way and Mason, which he called pitiful.

President Eric Lewis was even seated next to the mayor for lunch. He said he wanted to sit in the "Eric corner."

  • Alley rear of 20830 Sherman Way

Students Thank WNC

The WNC provided third grade students at Limerick and Sunnybrae Elementary Schools with dictionaries October 2013. Students wrote thank you notes with drawings to say thank you. The WNC coordinated with other groups to provide dictionaries across Winnetka elementary schools. Fullbright Elementary received dictionaries from the Elks Club.



Free Trees

The City of Los Angeles currently has a federally grant funded program in which free street trees are being planted along the parkway. The only requirements are that participants must agree to water their tree(s) and they must live within the City. For more information please go to www.environmentla.org or call (213) 485-3954.
