MAJOR 80-HOUR I-405 CLOSURE
IN SHERMAN OAKS


OVER PRESIDENT’S DAY WEEKEND


7:00 PM Friday, February 14 to
6:00 AM Tuesday, February 18


Dear Friend,

There will be a major closure of the I-405 northbound lanes in Sherman Oaks starting Valentines Day (Friday) evening, continuing all weekend through President’s Day (Monday).

The 80-hour continuous closure will be from the Getty Center north to Ventura Boulevard. Full freeway operations northbound will not be resumed until Tuesday. Only two northbound lanes (out of five) will be open during the day, and all lanes will be closed at night for major construction activities.

Traffic will be diverted onto Sepulveda Boulevard – so, your best bet is to stay away from the I-405 freeway and stay away from the canyons.

Kindest regards,

Adrin Nazarian

Council District 12 Community Liaison, Colin Crews, wants to remind you to make this Independence Day fun and SAFE for your pets! Some people love big gatherings and loud noises – but that can be frightening for our pets.Here are some Pet Safety Tips for Independence Day:• PLAN AHEAD
Make sure your pet is licensed and microchipped and that the microchip registration has your current address. In addition, make sure your dog is wearing a license tag. These two simple steps help us reunite families if a pet does get lost.
Click here for more information about getting your dog’s license, visit Los Angeles Animal Srevices on the web.June is Microchip Month. In celebration you can get a microchip for only $10 during June. Click here to find vendors at a location near you.You can also contact any of our L.A. Animal Services Shelters and schedule an appointment to have their companion animal microchipped. The cost for the public is $25.00 per animal. Most veterinary clinics also offer microchipping.• KEEP PETS INDOORS
Keep your pets inside. If you are having guests over, keep pets in a room that is off-limits to guests with plenty of water and food.• CREATE A CALMING ENVIRONMENT
Surround pets with their favorite toys and other familiar objects. Play soothing music and keep the room as quiet as possible by closing doors, windows, and blinds.• KEEP AWAY FROM FIREWORKS
Even if your pet does not seem obviously upset by fireworks, they can still cause harm to pets. Avoid potential burns, injuries, or possible ingestion by keeping all pets out of the vicinity of fireworks.• ADOPT and Help Us Save MORE Animals
The fourth of July is a time shelter when staff knows that we will have a sudden influx of lost and frightened animals. Our shelters are already over-crowded. If you are considering adopting, please visit our shelters and adopt NOW or consider fostering a great dog or cat! They are counting on us. We are all they have.For more information please visit http://LAAnimalServices.com or call (888) 452-7381.

Message from the President

 

At a special board meeting of the North Hills West Neighborhood Council on June 4, Tino Julian, our President, stepped down from his position.  I, John McGovern, was elected President.  I want to thank Tino for his nomination and the time he spent guiding the Board these past months.  Tino will be staying on as a board member.  I look forward to his input as we go forward.  I was a resident of North Hills since 1990 and moved to North Hills West in 2000.  I have raised my family here and been an active parishioner in Our Lady of Peace Church and School since 1987.  I have been involved with all of the parish fundraising activities and have worked on many of the food programs, helping to feed the needy families of our community.  As my youngest son gets ready to go to college, I have decided to step up and join the neighborhood council to address the many ongoing issues we have seen in our area lately.  Most recently, I worked against big business pushing its way into our residential neighborhood and trying to destroy our low density zoning.  As a member of the Emergency Preparedness Committee, I will work with other board members to prepare our community to deal with the inevitable disasters that strike Southern California.  Rest assured knowing that this Board has some of the finest minds addressing matters that affect you, the Stakeholders of North Hills West.  I can clearly see that I have a challenge ahead of me as I move into the office of president and there is much to learn, but I have great board members behind me and I have D.O.N.E. to assist in the legal challenges that may arise.  I know that our stakeholders will have patience in the transition and I thank them all in advance.  So, as we head into the hot summer months, I ask everyone to take a moment to look around at their neighbors and be glad for what we have in life.  Reach out to someone in your neighborhood who needs assistance in some small way.  If someone needs more help than you can provide, let this board know.  Our NHWNC Board is here to help!
Thank You.

John McGovern
President of the North Hills West Neighborhood Council
