Nearly seven months after Cruz Florian Godoy was ordered to vacate and clean up a makeshift mobile home park on the grounds of her Sylmar house, a judge gave her two more months to remove seven remaining RVs. Godoy’s property received attention last summer after neighbors alerted the media to the repugnant conditions created by the RV rentals, including human waste flowing onto the streets.

Sylmar is a unique semi-rural suburban community surrounded by scenic mountain views, vast open spaces, and impressive natural beauty. Situated at the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in the northeast corner of the
San Fernando Valley, this 12-square-mile community is located at the northern border of the City of Los Angeles, approximately 28 miles north of downtown.
As we know living in this wonderful community, we are cohabitating with an abundance of wildlife. Coyotes, raccoons, opossums, the occasional bear, and lately a fairly large mountain lion.
Safety is always the priority!
Safety for ourselves, our families, our pets, the community, and of course safety for these wild animals.
Please use the following information to help provide education and safety for all of Sylmar and its occupants.
Sylmar Neighborhood Council
California coyotes breed in January, February, and March. Gestation takes about two months, so pups are born in March through May. Both natural cycles can cause changes in behavior, according to Elizabeth Miller, staff biologist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services headquarters.
Sylmar has some beautiful and fantastic hiking trails. Trails range from easy, moderate, and escalate to hard. All routes hold fantastic views and provide an excellent opportunity to get in touch with nature and all its wonder. Sylmar's open spaces and trails are all in a Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone.
Please practice safety and No Fires or Smoking is allowed on any of the trails.

Coyotes are a year-round concern.
Refrain from letting pets run free. If they are outside, keep them on a leash and have a close eye on them. This also goes for when walking the dog. Otherwise, keep pets indoors, especially at night.
If you encounter a coyote with your pet, do not run away or turn your back to it. Calmly back away instead. You can also try to scare it away by making loud noises and acting aggressively.
