Don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night, November 4th. Daylight savings ends this Sunday, November 5th! It’s time to “fall back” – set your clocks back one hour and get an extra hour of sleep — at 2 am on Sunday!

It is also a good time to replace the batteries in your smoke alarms  and carbon monoxide alarms and also to update your emergency supplies.


HWPOA has received several complaints of sanitation trucks picking up garbage as early as 6:00 AM.  We have looked into the issue and have found that the Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) reads as follows:

113.01 LAMC- Rubbish and Garbage Collection
Allowable Hours if the Trash Bin is within 200 feet of resident:
— Between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
— If more than 200 feet from resident, trash bin can be picked up any time

The hours for construction noise differ slightly:

41.40 LAMC- Construction Noise
Allowable Construction Hours:
— Monday through Friday between 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
— Saturdays and National Holidays between 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
— Sundays, no construction except for residents


The Westside Pavilion on Pico Boulevard is up for sale and could change hands within a year.  With Nordstrom moving to Century City and Macy’s expected to close in 2018, occupancy rates are lower.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) will be replacing approximately 2,750 feet of 8” water main on Westwood Blvd, from Le Conte Ave to Lindbrook Dr. The existing 6” water main being replaced was installed in 1928. This project is already underway and is estimated to be completed by the March 2018.

Crews will be working nights, Sunday night through Friday morning 9:00 p.m. to 6:00a.m. You will be notified in advance of any planned interruption in water service, although in an emergency situation you may experience unplanned water interruptions. You may also experience some traffic congestion due to the work in the area. Parking will be restricted while work is in progress. Cars left in the street during working hours may be subject to towing.

Please also be advised that after completion of the water main installation, a paving contractor will be repaving the affected area. There will be “No Parking” signs posted and enforced during the repaving process.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project, please feel free to contact the field supervisor, Joe Castruita at (213) 367-5417 or Mike Taylor, Assistant Superintendent, at (213) 367-5594.
