news flash

The (anti) mansionization petition response has been overwhelming. If you haven’t signed it yet, it’s a pop-up on the VGNA website,

As a follow-up to the mansionization ordinance voted on at the Greater Valley Glen Council (GVGC) meeting on Monday night, the motion to not support a new mansionization ordinance for Valley Glen failed. The majority of the board and the stakeholders in attendance registered concern about the proliferation of mansionization and want stricter restrictions such as the Studio City ordinance. To this end, President Carlos Ferreyra indicated that the GVGC and the VGNA should work together on the issue.

Stay tuned for more developments. The VGNA will keep you informed.

Metro Seeks Input on NoHo Red Line Station Development


LOS ANGELES – Metro has started the process of creating guidelines to develop four parcels of land around the North Hollywood Red Line Station, the busiest stop outside of downtown Los Angeles. The agency is seeking community input to develop the 15.6 acres of space,  originally acquired during the construction of the Red Line and adjacent Orange Line busway. As part of the plan, Metro will also ask for 2,000 parking spaces for transit riders to be included in the project scope.

The four parcels are the largest amount of property near one station for a Metro joint development. Metro is hosting two events, a community meeting and an open house, in NoHo to discuss the project:

Community Workshop
Thursday, Sept. 24, 6 p.m.

Founded in 2001 under the auspices of the VGNA, the Adopt-A-Family Program has helped over 150 families in Valley Glen who are caught in a cycle of poverty, many as a result of illness, unemployment, or loss of a parent. Feeding the family and keeping a roof over their heads is a daily struggle for these families, something many of us take for granted.

Please open up your hearts and pocketbooks to help these families for the holidays and bring a special joy to the children. “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” -Winston Churchill

The families are selected by the public schools in Valley Glen and by Jewish Family Services.

If you are interested in donating to this worthy cause, I am taking gift card donations for Target, Ralph’s, and Vallarta, preferably in $25 increments. Cash/check donations are welcome in any amount. Each family receives Target gift cards so they can do the shopping for their children, and $100 gift cards to the market of their choice. The families also receive a frozen turkey and for each child, a stuffed stocking. To make a pledge to donate gift cards or money, a turkey or a stocking to stuff (I’ll provide the stocking and a list of suggested items), contact me at or (818) 787-9946.

The deadline for the gift card donations is Monday, December 7 and for the stockings and turkeys, Thursday, December 17. Jewish Family Services will get delivery of gift cards for their families the week of November 30.

Thank you and may your blessings be many.
