  1. A little info on SLNC and elections (I put this together for parents at my daughters school, Micheltorena Elementary)

    What is the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council? The Silver Lake Neighborhood Council is an all-volunteer, elected city “agency” that promotes public participation in city governance and decision-making processes to improve the quality of life for everyone in Silver Lake. Any local community member is eligible to vote or run for neighborhood council.

    Why should you care?- The Neighborhood Council is given $50,000.00 per year by the City of Los Angeles to spend on improving the community. Wouldn’t you like to have a say on where and how that money is spent? The Mayor and City Council consult the Neighborhood Council on issues such as where new housing should be built, if an apartment building can be turned in to condominiums and if parking meters should be installed on our streets. Wouldn’t you like to have someone representing you and your interest making these kinds of decisions?

    Who can vote?- anyone (you don’t have to be a citizen or legal permit resident) 14 years old or older who lives, works, owns property, owns or operates a business, is a member of a community group, school, or religious institution in Silver Lake.
