Northridge West Neighborhood Council Updates
By Greg Kromhout, Vice President of Administration, NWNC
The LA Department of Public Works will begin repaving Harnett Street in Northridge. The long-awaited improvements came about when a stakeholder emailed Pamela Bolin, NWNC President, for help in the matter. Pamela photographed the pot-holed street and reached out to the Department of Public Works. Councilman Mitchell Englander’s office later confirmed the approval of the street resurfacing and work has begun.
NWNC may not always be able to directly assist you, but should you attend our meetings seeking assistance we will do our best to help you or point you in the right direction.

The neighborhood council welcomed California Assemblyman Dante Acosta (R), seeking re-election to represent the 38th District, to our September meeting. He spoke about his position on several issues, including Aliso Canyon, mortgage settlements, public safety, school starting times, mental health counseling and cash bails. More detailed meeting minutes of the discussion will be posted to the Minutes page.
