Neighborhood clean up day success!

img_4305Thanks to all our neighbors and families who spent their Saturday morning fighting blight around Adams and Normandie. We covered a lot of ground as around 20 volunteers cleaned nuisance corners, curbs, side streets, and alleys. And thanks to the following who helped make our day a success through their leadership and donations: West Adams TrashForce and Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Everytable, LAPD Southwest Community Police Station, and Carla Hawkins, MPA, LAPD – Police Training and Education.
We’ll see you on October 15 for another clean up day! Stay tuned to submit locations.

The Pothole Repair Truck is on Its Way


NANDC is working with the Bureau of Street Services to repair the streets and sidewalks in our area. We are asking you to help us identify the areas that are most in need of repair.

Please let us know about potholes, eroded or cracked areas on asphalt streets, or sidewalk and curbs in need of repair.

We would like to hear about all areas that need repairs, but we are especially interested in areas that might be safety concerns (crosswalks or intersections) and areas that are heavily trafficked (parks, schools, churches, shopping districts). Alleys will also be considered.

Please complete our online form by October 14.

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.
