Valley Bureau Sponsors Forum

Last week, the City Attorney’s Office Valley Bureau sponsored an Apartment Owners and Managers Forum at the Sepulveda Recreational Center. Other sponsors of the event included Councilman Richard Alarcon’s Office (CD 7) and the LAPD’s Mission Area.

The event was a great success with close to 80 members of the community in attendance.

The City Attorney believes that each neighborhood has its own rhythm, its own sources of pride and its own concerns; which is why our attorneys go out into the community to engage in a dialogue with local residents.

The primary goal of the Office of the City Attorney is to make the neighborhoods of Los Angeles safer – to improve the quality of life for the City’s residents at home, at work and at play. The list of topics discussed at this particular forum included: crime, bulky items and sanitation, the City’s nuisance abatement efforts, eviction, housing inspection, the Neighborhood Prosecutor Program, graffiti, gangs, narcotics and other issues of concern to the Valley community.

There was very positive feedback from both the presenters and participants. One of the requests was that we have a follow-up to the presentation. The Los Angeles Police Department has agreed to host the forum in July.

If you would like to be informed of the when and where of the next forum, please email us at
