Thank you to Joe Cano for allowing us to publish the video he took of the Council District 14 candidate forum, held by The Eagle Rock Association (TERA) at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts, on Feb. 25. 2015. Candidates in attendance were Nadine Diaz, José Huizar, and Gloria Molina. Moderator was Mekhalo Medina, and host was Greg Merideth, TERA President.
The Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council will hold a special meeting to present the Best of Eagle Rock awards, followed by a community meet and greet / Q&A with ERNC board members, on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at 10:30am at Eagle Rock City Hall (upstairs), 2035 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90041.

The next meeting of the Land Use and Planning Committee (LUPC) of the ERNC is Thursday evening, February 19, 2015, at 7:00 pm at Eagle Rock City Hall, 2035 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041. All interested Eagle Rockers are encouraged to attend!
It’s election time here in Eagle Rock, which means there are all kinds of interesting and informative forums coming up — along with some great community-building events that should be fun for Eagle Rockers of all ages. Read on for details.
City Council Debate This Thursday, Feb. 12
Tomorrow night, the ERNC will co-sponsor a lively Town Hall and Debate among the candidates for Eagle Rock’s Council District 14, at Burbank Middle School. Why should you pay attention to this election? Because the City Council runs the City of LA, and Council staffers, who are hired by Councilmembers, are the city employees most people — and most Neighborhood Councils — interact with day-to-day. Flyer is at this link.
York Park Opens on Feb. 21
The new York Park, just over the Townsend/Ave 51 hill, opens on Feb. 21. (That was fast!) There’s an all-day festival to celebrate that sounds like a lot of fun, and the ERNC will be there. More details on Facebook at this link.
Tree Care Event, Feb. 22 in Eagle Rock
Join us for what will hopefully become a regular tree-care event in Eagle Rock. The ERNC, along with Council District 14 and other neighborhood groups (see tree tag, below), planted 272 new street trees in Eagle Rock and Highland Park, and they need your help to keep growing strong. Come meet your neighbors, and make your neighborhood a better, greener place! RSVP for the event and more details at this link.
City Council Debate, Feb. 25 in Eagle Rock!
And on Wednesday, Feb. 25, there will be another Town Hall and Debate among the candidates for Council District 14, this time right here in Eagle Rock, at the Center for the Arts. Sponsored by the Eagle Rock Association (TERA), this one is not to be missed. So recycle those glossy mailers, and come out to see and hear the candidates, live and in person. Flyer is at this link.
If you have any questions at all about the ERNC, our meetings, or how to get involved in making Eagle Rock a better place, just send us an email at:
The Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council (ERNC) is an official organization of the City of Los Angeles, staffed by 19 elected, unpaid volunteers. Our Board is composed of Eagle Rock stakeholders from all walks of life, who share a desire to make our home town a safer, greener, and more prosperous place to live.
Our job is neighborhood empowerment: We act as your advocates and liaisons to the City Council, the Mayor, and all City of L.A. departments that touch the lives of Eagle Rockers. Join us at one of our meetings, or talk to us at a community event, and find out how we can make Eagle Rock even better, together.
The Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council Board will hold its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 7:00pm at Eagle Rock City Hall (upstairs), 2035 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90041. All Eagle Rockers are welcome and encouraged to attend!
The meeting will be preceded at 6:00pm by an open house for residents of Subdistricts 7 and 8 to meet with their ERNC representatives, Liam Roth and John Goldfarb.
Click through the links in the agenda to view/download all the supplementary materials the ERNC will use to make decisions at the meeting; these materials will be added as we get them, so sometimes they may be added up to one hour before the meeting. One paper copy of this agenda packet will be available for public viewing at the meeting — so if you want your own copy of anything to refer to, please print at home and bring with you.
The public is welcome to make general comments at the beginning of each meeting, and speak on individual agenda items as they are discussed, by filling out a Speaker Card at the beginning of the meeting. Public comments are limited to 2 minutes each. See the agenda for details.
If you want to suggest an agenda item for next month’s meeting, please email the Executive Committee of the ERNC at least 2 days before the Executive Committee meeting, where we set the agenda. These meetings are usually on the last Tuesday of each month, but sometimes holidays get in the way. If you’re planning on attending a meeting or submitting an agenda item, please confirm the date in our calendar section.
