Join Us at the Annual Meeting!

The Association’s annual meeting will be Tuesday, October 16th at John Burroughs Middle School at 7PM.  Among many presentations homeowners will hear about security from the LAPD, ADT and SSA and get a report from the Council Office.  There will also be a discussion of the upcoming changes to the Transportation Element part of the General Plan which includes possible new bike lanes and other modifications that will impact our neighborhood’s streets.  And, most importantly, you and your neighbors will have the opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions and find out about projects that can use you as a volunteer.  And, because the meeting is going to be held at John Burroughs, you’ll have a chance to see the wonderful work Board member Joanne Medeiros, along with volunteers and the John Burroughs Staff, has done to beautify the campus.  So plan on attending!Cheap Uggs
