What's a Neighborhood Council?

A neighborhood council is an organized group of stakeholders in the community (residents - both renters and owners, businesspeople, employees, students and other individuals with direct ties to the area) that serves as an advisory to the city. As representatives of the community, the neighborhood council allows both the community and city to be informed of its issues and needs, and ultimately creates a better sense of community and improves the quality of life in the area. Neighborhood councils also can receive up to $50,000 a year from the City of Los Angeles for community improvements, projects and expenses. The City of Los Angeles has a system of over 80 certified neighborhood councils.

The EHNC defines a "stakeholder" in its community as a person who:

- Lives...
- Works...
- Owns Property...
- Attends School...
- Is a Member of a Faith Organization...
- Represents a community-based non-profit organization that provides services...

...in East Hollywood.

The EHNC - Your Neighborhood Council

The East Hollywood Neighborhood Council, formed in March 2002 and certified as an official neighborhood council on April 19, 2007, is the neighborhood council for the diverse, dynamic and unique community of East Hollywood. It is home to Los Angeles' designated Thai Town and Little Armenia neighborhoods, as well as large numbers of other immigrant groups such as Mexicans, El Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Filipinos, Koreans, South Americans, Ukrainians, Russians and many more. This community also comprises of a youthful community where 64% of its residents are under the age of 40, as well as a heavy renter population of 88%.

The EHNC's boundaries are
Hollywood and Sunset boulevards to the north, Hoover St to the east, The Hollywood (101) Freeway to the south and Western Ave to the west.

The EHNC strives to outreach to all of its stakeholders, adult, senior or youth, citizen, legal or undocumented. We all share the same issues and concerns in our community and the only way to improve the neighborhood is to do it together! We reach out to neighborhood watches/block clubs, nonprofits, homes, apartments, schools, houses of worship, hospitals and businesses alike. In addition, we are present at prominent events in the community.
