Message from the Board President
Hello Highland Park! 

I have a very important announcement to get the week rolling! The neighborhood council is looking for new board members and officers to serve out the remainder of this term. And we are having a Q&A Open House this Thursday where you can come and apply for a position in person, ask questions, and learn more about a position on the neighborhood council. If you have a love for our community and a drive to serve, this is your opportunity to step up and get involved. I have served on the council for about six years, and I can attest that it is an extremely rewarding experience. It has it’s challenges, but we have a great team on the board, and if you’re up for the challenge, you’ll be supported to share your passion and make a difference for your community. 

Read on to learn about the Q&A event this Thursday, how you can apply on-line, and other happenings in the neighborhood this week. We look forward to seeing you at an event or at a board or committee meeting soon!

LADWP Releases Season’s Snowpack Results
Each spring, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) measures the Eastern Sierra snowpack and Mono Lake water elevation in order to determine runoff and export projections for the LA Aqueduct System. This year, LADWP conducted its final measurements of the season on April 3 with snowpack levels registering at 66 percent of normal.

Despite a series of storms in March that provided much-needed precipitation, this winter’s snowpack fell short of normal levels. While the March rainfall helped provide needed runoff through the summer, Angelenos are urged to continue using water responsibly and efficiently in preparation for dry winters in upcoming years. The City of Los Angeles and LADWP remain committed to helping Los Angeles achieve the water conservation goals established by the Mayor’s  Sustainable City pLAn .

Thank you for taking this important survey measuring stakeholder satisfaction with the City of Los Angeles. We want your thoughts and opinions to provide the Mayor and City Council a better perspective of how well the City is performing in delivery of services and fiscal responsibility from the point of view of the people they serve.
