End of the Year Wrap-Up and the Year Ahead

Dear Neighbors:

As 2014 comes to a close, we’d like to thank you for your participation in the LWNA and enthusiasm for our new website.   Thank you to everyone who responded to our recent newsletter by signing up for the blog, joining our mailing list, or sending in your membership dues.  In the past year, LWNA has continued to advocate for the neighborhood and worked to keep it a clean and safe place.  In the year to come, we look forward to participating in the Great American Cleanup in April and National Night Out in August, as well as many other neighborhood projects.   We also plan on continuing to update this site with useful information and community events.

Many of you have followed the proposed Walmart Neighborhood Store at Ladera and Unser with great interest.  The Environmental Planning Commission (EPC) had its meeting on the proposal on December 11th.  Several neighbors and the LWNA Board participated through meetings and written submissions.   In the end, the proposal was accepted, with a few accommodations made for the appearance of the facade and accessibility for bicycles.  The complete reports are attached:  here and here.

We wish all of you a happy and safe New Year!  (For some great safety tips for the holiday season, check out the Northwest Area Command December Newsletter on our Neighborhood News page!)
