The Van Nuys Neighborhood Council Parks and Recreation / Open Spaces Committee has been working closely with the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks on the improvements to the gym, fields, courts and exercise equipment at the Van Nuys Recreation Center, due to be completed September 2018.
Van Nuys Neighborhood Council was represented at the recent The LA River Master Plan Community Meeting on July 25, 2018 at Canoga Park High School to learn about the Los Angeles County Plan to update the 1996 LA River Master Plan, addressing the entire 51 mile LA River. The County Draft Vision is: A re-imagined River to connect and serve the diverse communities of LA County. Find out More and Join in the process.
The Transit Neighborhood Plan development is an effort to identify new specific development guidelines for selected neighborhoods along transit corridors. In our case, the corridor is from Victory to Burbank and Sepulveda to Hazeltine, encompassing the Sepulveda and Van Nuys Orange Line Stations. In each corridor the objective is to revitalize neighborhoods, create an opportunity for more jobs and housing, foster a vibrant mix of land uses, increase mobility access, and improve public spaces. Come to the next community meeting on July 25, 7pm to share your input on the revitalization of our community.
Local businesses can apply to lease space and operate in the Marvin Braude Retail Mall at the Van Nuys Government Center 6262 Van Nuys Blvd. City Council District 6 is focused on reactivating the area to increase pedestrian traffic by increasing programming in the plaza including events such as summer movie nights and community festivals as well as increasing public parking in the area. Proposals are now due and will remain open until all spaces are leased.
Join us for our next Planning and Land Use Meeting on Wednesday, July 18, 6:30pm at the Van Nuys Community Police Station, 6240 Sylmar Ave.
