Agenda

NANDC 2015 Year in Review

This year the North Area Neighborhood Development Council continued its tradition of community involvement and service with clean ups on Jefferson in March and Western in October and a holiday dinner and toy giveaway on Christmas Eve.

We have begun to periodically have speakers of interest to the community starting with Council Member Marqueece Harris-Dawson in August. Next up was State Senator Holly Mitchell in November. She brought us legislative updates in the areas of Homelessness, Human Trafficking, Affordable Housing, Women and Inequality and Commercial Property. Our next guest speaker will be City Councilmember Gil Cedillo January 7. Since our boundaries include parts of three council districts, we look forward to having Council Member Curren Price as a guest speaker in the future.

Our Name

The early Eighth District Empowerment Congress, created by now Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas was a community-based education and mobilization program. It has been acknowledged as the model for the Los Angeles citywide neighborhood council system created by the change City Charter.

We still proudly carry the early moniker in our name as the 'Empowerment Congress North Area Neighborhood Development Council'.  Call us NANDC for short!

Our Community

NANDC is located in West Adams, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with most of its buildings erected between 1880 and 1925. It was once the wealthiest district in the city, with its Victorian mansions and sturdy Craftsman bungalows home to Downtown businessmen and professors and academicians at USC. In the 1990s, three areas of West Adams were designated as Historic Preservation Overlay Zones by the city of Los Angeles, in recognition of their outstanding architectural heritage.
