II Mar Vista Community Council Event
Our Association is hosting a table. The event
begins at 7:00 pm. The main topic will be Emergency Preparedness.
III Spring Fling
Neighborhood event to enhance community spirit is
tentatively scheduled for late April. Concerns about budget were
discussed. A planning meeting will discuss these issues further.
IV Block Captains Update
There was a meeting last weekend. The dues
collection for this cycle is complete. The estimated balance is
close to $7000. The dues come from about 20% of the
households. We would hope that this number could be higher.
It was suggested to increase the visibility of the Block Captain in the
neighborhood. A few blocks are still not represented.
V Newsletter Update
Apartments – Perhaps managers can be invited to come
to our meetings. The Community Council does give $1000 to
associations for reaching out to apartments.
The Boy Scouts distributed newsletters on the blocks west of Barrington.

well. Removal numbers available on our website or call 311 for
