Welcome to the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council

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, in lieu of in-person meetings, all meetings will be accessible by telephone or via the Zoom app.  Instructions are in our agendas and on this website.

Remember: you can also contact your board representative directly or email our general mailbox at info@greaterwilshire.org.  Below are reliable and valuable links to help you through our current crisis:

Our online/telephonic meetings will be open to the public.  Times and locations will be published on this website, on our social channels, and in the community at least 72 hours before the meeting.  Please contact info@greaterwilshire.org or (323) 539-GWNC (4962) at least two weeks before the meeting to request an item be placed on an agenda.

I look forward to seeing you soon, and until then, stay well, wash your hands often, wear masks outside, and stay home as much as you can,

Caroline Labiner Moser, President

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 landuse@greaterwilshire.org. Recent case filing and appeal reports can also be found in this GWNC Document Folder.
