We are one of ninety-nine Neighborhood Councils which serve as liaisons between our community and the City. We are a volunteer, elected Board with representatives from every Greater Wilshire Area. Our Standing Committees, comprised of Board members and other community stakeholders, do much of the work of the GWNC, meeting regularly and making official recommendations to the Board. To receive our updates, look for the “Subscribe to our mailing list” box on this page.
During this difficult period, City and State rules prohibit in-person meetings; however web and telephone-based meetings will commence in May, 2020. Please check this website and our board and committee agenda pages for updates and connection instructions.
Remember: you can also contact your board representative directly or email our general mailbox at email@example.com. Below are reliable and valuable links to help you through our current crisis:

The GWNC Land Use Committee is currently unable to hold meetings to review pending project applications, ask questions of developers, and hear stakeholder input; similarly, the GWNC Board cannot voice support or opposition to projects. LA City Planning has posted new Covid-19 rules, noting, “…the public can continue to submit comments on… projects by email and phone to ensure an open and transparent process.”
We encourage neighborhood associations and other GWNC stakeholders to sign up for bi-weekly case filing reports from City Planning and submit comments on cases affecting our area. You may wish to copy your emailed comments to your City Council Member as well as to email@example.com. Recent case filing and appeal reports can also be found in this GWNC Document Folder.
