The Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council (Previously known as the West Van Nuys / Lake Balboa Neighborhood Council) was certified by the City of Los Angeles on September 28, 2004.
The Board meets on the 1st Wednesday of every month (except January and July). The agenda will be posted 72 hours prior to the meeting. We invite you to come and find out what is going on in your community and how to get involved.
Taking care of our neighborhood is so important to us.
The City Council approved the compromise plan of expanding Lake Balboa. This compromise omits the industrial area north of Saticoy St. east of the airport and Van Nuys Airport. It also omits the area south of Victory Blvd. west of Balboa but includes all the park area south of Victory to the L.A. River east of Balboa. That means that Balboa Lake is in the community of Lake Balboa.
Community Renaming – City Council File 06-2613 pertains to the application to make official the community currently known as Lake Balboa and extend this area to the remainder of the Neighborhood Council area. The Board voted to approve the report and impact statement as developed and prepared by the ad-hoc committee.
The Plan for a Citywide System of Neighborhood Councils
The Plan for a Citywide System of Neighborhood Councils (Plan) was approved on May 30, 2001 by the City Council through an ordinance. The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) and the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners reviewed years of extensive study regarding neighborhood councils, and received months of public comment before presenting a proposed plan to the Mayor and City Council in December, 2000. For six months, City Council committees received public comment on the proposed plan, and made revisions before submitting it to the Mayor for final approval in May, 2001. The Plan establishes a flexible framework through which people in neighborhoods may be empowered to create Neighborhood Councils to serve their needs. The Plan also sets minimum standards to ensure that Neighborhood Councils represent all stakeholders in the community, conduct fair and open meetings, and are financially accountable.
