Adopt a Fire Hydrant

Adopt a Fire Hydrant

In April, Canoga Park Neighborhood Council collaborated with Councilmember Bob Blumenfield’s Office, Los Angeles Fire Department, Los Angeles Police Department, Home Depot, and Department of Water and Power, to hold the Adopt a Fire Hydrant – Become a Hero event.  Over 230 volunteers spent their Saturday morning painting over 250 fire hydrants, making them easier to spot in the event of an emergency.  This event brought the community together and provided individuals the opportunity to beautify and increase the safety of their neighborhood.

North Hills West NC Open House

On Saturday, April 22, the North Hills West Neighborhood Council hosted an open house at the New Horizons – Sam’s café. All the neighborhood council committees set up booths in order to interact with residents who wanted to voice their concerns on various neighborhood issues. In attendance was Congress man Tony Cardena’s office, Assembly member Adrian Nazerian’s office, County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl’s office. North Hills residents had the opportunity to converse with Council Member Mitch Englander over a wide array of quality of concerns. Board Member Sam Kwasman had the audience laughing with his animated Donald Duck voice impressions.

This well attended event provided residents with the opportunity to participate in the Neighborhood Council. Thanks to the North Hills Neighborhood Council for this amazing event, by seeking to increase attendance community participation, engaging with the local elected representatives and empowering residents to take ownership of their neighborhood.
