Laurel Canyon



Your Neighborhood Leader in Hillside Preservation

The Laurel Canyon Association (LCA) is a 501(c)(4) non-profit residents association with a mission to protect the quality of life and the environment of Laurel Canyon, a neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills area of Los Angeles. LCA is the oldest association in the neighborhood having formed in 1930 and we work in close harmony with the Laurel Canyon Land Trust to acquire and permanently preserve open space in Laurel Canyon.

The following is a brief list of the recent LCA initiatives:

  • Completion of $1.6 million, 17-acre open space acquisition project known as Let’s Buy a Mountain

  • Creation of $1.5 million community benefit fund

  • Advocacy Toward New Hillside Construction Regulation Overlay Zone for Laurel Canyon.

  • Creation of Hillside Retaining Wall Ordinance in conjunction with other hillside partners.

  • Initiator of proposed Wildlife Coordinator Ordinance with our partner, Citizens for Los Angeles Wildlife (CLAW).

  • Drafter of of B Permit Notification Ordinance (aka: "paper street" notification ordinance)

  • LCA was a advocate for adoption of the Baseline Hillside Ordinance (aka: the "McMansion" rules).

Our board consists of eleven elected board members assigned to various committee duties.  Board members represent a cross-section of neighbors who have volunteered their time to serve their community. Our volunteers charge nothing for their time and work.  We depend on your contributions to pay for association fees, supplies and special projects.
