The Sylmar Neighborhood Council was certified by the City of Los Angeles on May 6, 2003. The neighborhood council system was approved by the voters in 1999. Neighborhood Councils are intended to act as a conduit between Los Angeles City Hall and the local communities. Their role is to work with stakeholders to increase influence with city lawmakers and departments to improve the community. Stakeholders are defined as people who live, work, or own property in the area.
To promote the welfare, protect the interests, and serve as a voice for the Sylmar community with the City's decision-making process for a better quality of life.
The SNC holds its monthly Board meeting on the fourth Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm at Sylmar Charter High School (13050 Borden Avenue). Please check the SNC website to confirm, as meeting locations do change from time to time. The meetings are open to the public, and stakeholders are invited to attend, participate, and voice their concerns so that the Board can better support the needs of our community.
