Got A Burning Issue?

We would like to hear what it is. Please fill out the form and send us your issue.

For some concerns like potholes, tree removal, and street repair, we would be happy to point you to the City resource that can help you.

But if you have an issue that you would like the Board to take a position on, such as a land use issue or public transportation, according to the Brown Act, the Board can only discuss and vote on it if it appears on the meeting agenda with a specific motion. Agendas are posted to the public 3 days prior to the meeting. So, if you want action at the next meeting, please fill out the below form with as much of the specifics as possible. We will contact you.

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.
