San Fernando Valley — Fix My Road survey!

San Fernando Valley — Fix My Road survey!

Dear Fellow Stakeholders:

Senator Robert Hertzberg asks that you send him your pictures of the potholes you encounter on you travels through the San Fernando Valley.

"Attention drivers, cyclists, walkers, and everyone in the San Fernando Valley: California just passed a major new commitment to fix our roads and sidewalks, including city streets and major freeways like the 405 and the 101".

"We need a list of projects and I promise to deliver these to the right folks and get repairs underway and get you back on the road safely!"

He wants to see your photos of broken asphalt, buckling sidewalks, potholes and where they’re located.

Clean Team Making Improvements In Our Neighborhood

It was a turbo-charged VGNA Clean Team event on the morning of Saturday, June 24th. The triangular meridian at Coldwater and Burbank has a welcome sign for Valley Glen, but the meridian was not very welcoming. The pictures tell a happy tale. Kudos to some great teamwork from the VGNA Clean Team (kudos to Joan Gil, Tom and Janet Newton, Rich and Angela Rossi, Tony Richelieu, and Bruce and Jennifer Gaims) for making a huge difference. Special thanks to Sahag Yedalian and Councilman Krekorian's office for supplying the tools and picking up the mountain of trash bags that was created. These events are fun, and all Valley Glen residents are invited to come out and feel good about beautifying our community. See you on July 29th!

Here are some before and after images:

Become your neighborhood ambassador! The VGNA needs grid reps!

Become your neighborhood ambassador!
The VGNA needs grid reps!

The Valley Glen Neighborhood Association is organized into 11 mini-neighborhoods called grids. Each grid has representatives or “reps” who act as liaisons between their grid and the larger community. Grid reps also help distribute the VGNA newsletter to Valley Glen homes four times a year. We plan to hold quarterly get-togethers expressly for grid reps to help everyone become better acquainted and to have some fun in the process.

 

Go to our map at www.vgna.org to see a copy of our map and see where your home is located.

 

The VGNA is currently seeking grid reps for the following areas:

 

GRID A which is the community located bounded by Victory Blvd.(N), Fulton Ave.(W), Oxnard St. (S) and Coldwater Ave.(E).

 

GRID 1 which is the community bounded by Oxnard Ave.(N), Woodman Ave.(E), Burbank Ave.(S) and Hazeltine Ave.(W).

 

GRID 4 the community bounded by Sherman Way(N), the Tujunga Wash(E), Vanowen(S) and Woodman Ave.(W).

 

GRID 5 the community bounded by Vanowen(N), Fulton(E), Victory(S) and Woodman Ave.(W).
