3. SEEKING NEW HWPOA BOARD MEMBERS
Join the Board of Directors
Holmby-Westwood Property Owners Association
The HWPOA 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), WLAPD liaison and more.
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!
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 470-1785 to contact Dana. The deadline for submissions is April 10. We look forward to hearing from you!!
4. CAR BREAK-IN
A resident near the corner of Hilts and Lindbrook reported that her car was broken into recently. The car was unlocked and parked in driveway. Makeup bag and iPod charger were stolen. The residents have security cameras which showed a middle aged man at 1:30 AM going through the car. A police report was made and the videotape will be sent to the police.
