Those seeking to run for a board seat on any of the 10 neighborhood councils on the Westside must file their respective candidacies by April 3 in order to be eligible for the May 18 election.

All District 11 neighborhood councils will be having board elections in mid-May for leadership and representative seats.

According to Empower L.A., 10 of the City’s 95 neighborhood councils are in District 11, the most of any district.

The neighborhood councils in District 11 include Bel-Air/Beverly Crest, Del Rey, Mar Vista, Palms, South Robertson, Venice, Westchester/Playa, West Los Angeles, Westwood, and Westside.

In addition to traditional offices such as president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer, neighborhood councils also have multiple seats for business and residential representatives.

To find out more about Empower L.A.’s 2014 elections and information about candidates and offices, please visit the neighborhood council website here.

Under the District 11 heading, you will find links to eight of the 10 neighborhood councils on the Westside.

The City’s Neighborhood Councils System was established in 1999. A form of direct citizen government representing specific enclaves throughout Los Angeles, there are 95 neighborhood councils in operation. Each neighborhood council elects a board consisting of business owners, property owners, and residents.

All official councils are overseen by the Dept. of Neighborhood Empowerment, or DONE, and are connected to Los Angeles City Hall.

The 10 neighborhood councils here on the Westside are also part of The Westside Regional Alliance of Councils (WRAC).

District 11 has the latest election cycle of the 12 neighborhood council districts. Districts 1 through 5 have already held elections, while District 6’s neighborhood council voters head to the ballot box on April 3.

According to Empower L.A., there are 369,139 residents living within the collective boundaries of the 10 neighborhood councils of District 11.

There are 54,675 living within the Westchester/Playa Neighborhood Council’s boundaries, making it the largest in District 11. The Bel Air/Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council is the District’s least populated with 26,636 residents.

System-wide, the largest neighborhood council is Wilshire Center/Koreatown, which has 103,364 residents within its borders.
