Los Angeles is a large city and life in L.A. can move so fast that we don’t take the time to get to know our neighbors. When this happens we lose something that is so valuable: a sense of belonging to and being supported by a community. In an effort to create and sustain our vibrant community, a group of your neighbors has started the West Mar Vista Neighborhood Association (WMVNA).
We have over 100 members so far and are growing. Anyone living in Mar Vista’s Zone 6 is welcome to join us. Our boundaries are Centinela to Walgrove and Washington Blvd. to The Santa Monica Airport.
Some of our ideas and goals:
Organize our neighborhood for emergency preparedness
Start a Neighborhood Watch Program as an effective tool for crime reduction
Provide opportunities to get to know and socialize with your neighbors
Act as a sounding board to recognize and determine how best to deal with local quality of life issues
Connect with people who share similar interests: art, food, knitting, travel or anything else
Sponsor community service projects
And there will be more ideas as we continue to grow!
