The West Adams Neighborhood Council has started the annual process of revising our bylaws, the foundation of our council. This is your chance to make a real difference in how our council operates by sharing your thoughts and suggestions on our bylaws.
What Are Bylaws?
Bylaws are a foundational governing guide that dictates the operations of the neighborhood council. They’re not just boring legal mumbo jumbo. Think of them as WANC’s very own recipe book, outlining how we work together, who contributes, and how decisions are made. They ensure everyone gets a fair say and our community dish, aka WANC, stays delicious and nutritious. Here is a link to our existing WANC Bylaws.
How Can You Get Involved?
We want to hear from YOU ! Here are two ways to make your voice heard:

The Los Angeles Reforms for Equity and Public Acknowledgment of Institutional Racism (L.A. REPAIR) is L.A.’s first participatory budget pilot program. L.A. REPAIR will distribute roughly $8.5 million directly to nine L.A. City neighborhoods, called REPAIR Zones, to directly engage underserved communities in deciding how public money is spent. This brings more power to more people.
Grant Proposal Submission Deadline: Wednesday, November 29, 2023 12:00 p.m. (Noon)

The Lead Hazard Remediation Program(LHRP) operated by the Los Angeles Housing Dept. LHRP provides grants to property owners to make homes lead-safe and to eliminate health and safety hazards found in the home.
Your Neighborhood Council has been identified as residing in one of LHRP’s target zip codes 90011, 90018, 90037 and/or Council Districts 8, 9, and 10. The California Department of Public Health Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program, in their report California’s Progress in Preventing and Managing Childhood Lead Exposure, identifies these three zip codes in the City of Los Angeles as being within the top five with the highest rates of elevated lead blood levels.
To be eligible, the dwelling must be built pre-1978 and test positive for lead hazards. Occupants (not necessarily owners) must meet HUD income guidelines and have a child under the age of six, either living at or visiting the property frequently.
Post-pandemic, the recruitment of participating properties has been challenging. Our team is working on building partnerships with local community partners with aligned goals where we may be able to reach residents to inform them of the dangers of lead and share the program with them. If there is any opportunity to work with your neighborhood council, please let us know. We are available to present at your next neighborhood council meeting
