The President’s Message
”I am proud to have served on this Westwood Neighborhood Council since its inception in 2010. This term I am very honored to serve as the president of this amazing organization. We have much to accomplish during the next two years, and we have an intelligent, capable, and diverse council to meet challenges head on during this term.
One of the cornerstones of this council will be to make decisions based on fairness, equality, and transparency. I feel that we, as a council, must hear all sides to any controversy, or action that comes to us for input or approval. We must look at all avenues in determining which is the best course for our community, and how this may affect all stakeholders. This is a difficult balancing act, yet one we should always strive to get right. We have a diverse community, and many differing opinions on what is best for our community. There is not always one right answer. We must perform our due diligence in finding the right solution to improve our wonderful community.
We will be addressing issues of homelessness, which I care deeply about, land use issues, public safety, transportation, development, relations with UCLA and other entities within our boundaries, zoning, outreach, and community involvement and engagement. I hope you will join us in helping to create a better future for Westwood, for all its varied stakeholders. Please join us in our monthly board meetings, and in our various committees. We have something to offer everyone! Come and be a part of it all!Lisa ChapmanPresident
