VNNC Vision 2020: Grow and Flourish

VNNC Swearing In2019 began a new chapter for the Van Nuys Neighborhood Council as we held an election, thanked outgoing members for their service and swore in new members in June. We have had a change in leadership, electing new officers and new committee chairs have stepped up. Everyone is working on learning how to work together and be mindful of how Neighborhood Councils are to function.

Our focus is to give stakeholders the opportunity to consider and make their voice heard on a few key issues each meeting, allowing the Board to then vote on sending a Community Impact Statement to City Council which is the official way we are able to represent our constituents.
