1. HWPOA ANNUAL MEETING – SAVE THE DATE
The Annual HWPOA membership meeting is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, May 12 at Belmont Village. More details to follow. A new Board of Directors for 2015-16 will be elected. See below if you would like to join the Board.
2. SEEKING NEW HWPOA BOARD MEMBERS
Join the Board of Directors
Holmby-Westwood Property Owners Association
The Board is seeking Holmby Westwood residents to volunteer to serve as a Director for 1 year. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month except for August and December. We ask only that you be a paid-up member of the Association and have an interest in maintaining and improving the quality of life as well as the historic and architectural integrity we have all come to know and enjoy.
You will work with many neighbors who serve on the Board, some who have served for many years. This is a way to help your community, to work with city officials and departments, to plan events, and to support the protections in place today.
The Holmby-Westwood community is over 80 years old and preservation, livability, and schools are key to its residential value. Serving on our Board of Directors is a way to safeguard one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime.
We want the next generation to be able to carry on what we have fought to protect for these many years. Holmby-Westwood Property Owners Association is a highly respected association throughout the city and, with your involvement, we hope that will continue indefinitely.
Our meetings are held at Belmont Village, Wilshire at Warner Ave., 8 – 9:30 PM, free parking included. Our committees include: Security, Traffic, History and Architecture, Architectural Supervising Committee, HPOZ, 4th of July event, Emergency Preparedness, Filming (in the neighborhood), Welcoming committee, WLAPD liaison, Local Schools Committee.
Please, contact Dana Glenn, our Office Manager, and tell her that you want to join our Board. You will have an extremely worthwhile experience while giving back to a community that has remained highly desirable for many years. That did not happen accidentally. It happened with a commitment from hundreds of our neighbors over 80 years!
Call (310) 470-1785 or email email@example.com to contact Dana. The deadline for submissions is April 12. We look forward to hearing from you!!

4. WATER-WISE GARDEN TOUR
Brentwood Beautiful is sponsoring a Water-Wise Garden Tour on Sunday, April 12.
Did you know that over fifty percent of residential water is used to maintain landscaping? Homeowners can significantly slash that amount by making simple and inexpensive changes to their gardens. Educational speakers from a variety of disciplines will help you transition to a low-water landscape.
Become familiar with drought-tolerant plants and see which ones you think are beautiful and colorful. Learn why California Natives are so helpful in terms of their ecological benefits.
We will tour the Brentwood School campus, University Synagogue and several private homes in the Brentwood area. The tour begins at Brentwood School, 100 S. Barrington Place, 90049. 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Donation of $25.00 to Brentwood Beautiful.
