Atwater Village also made headlines this week for having the third bike corral installed by LADOT! The corral is sponsored by Kaldi Coffee and is located at the pedestrian bump out on Madera. This week, several members of the Neighborhood Council gathered in front of the bike corral to watch Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell cut the ribbon! We are thrilled to have this new addition to the neighborhood and thank Alex at Kaldi Coffee for this awesome contribution! You can read more about the bike corral by clicking here!

Co-Chairs Notes
It was just a year ago that the current Board of Governors was elected to represent you. Already we know when the next board election will be - April 12th, 2014. We want to continue to make sure that Atwater Village is the best neighborhood in LA by having a passionate and effective board. If you feel that you would make a good addition to our team, or you know of someone else that would, we encourage you to run during the upcoming election. Our Elections Committee is ramping up the outreach, so you'll be hearing lots more about our candidate recruitment efforts, as well as our get out the vote effort. More info to follow.
