What is the Canoga Park Neighborhood Council?

The mission of the Canoga Park Neighborhood Council is to provide an innovative forum for all community stakeholders to contribute to a healthy, vibrant, and inclusive Canoga Park. All of the Board and committee meetings are open to the public and provide you with an opportunity to speak. The Board procedures are more formal than committee meetings so your time to address the Board is limited. Committee meetings are generally informal, and discussions between participants are commonplace. This is important because the heart of Neighborhood Council work happens at committee meetings.

A. The purposes of the CPNC shall be:

  1. To be the forum for the discussion of community issues.
  2. To offer a forum to engage all CANOGA PARK stakeholders to collaborate and deliberate on matters affecting the community.
  3. To be an advocate for the viewpoints of the CPNC to government and private agencies.
  4. To develop, implement & enforce standards that protect the health, welfare and aesthetic quality of the community.
  5. To assist other organizations in CANOGA PARK which want help in accomplishing their objectives or projects, and/or those organizations which the Council desires to support.
  6. To develop in the stakeholders a sense of personal pride and responsibility for their neighborhood and their city.

B. The policy of the CPNC shall be:

  1. To inform community residents of forthcoming projects.
  2. To aid an individual or a group or organization in the advancement of pursuing whatever community project the individual or the members of the group or organization think desirable and which the council desires to support.
  3. To create a forum to enable any individual or group or organization to speak out on any side of any issue on which the individual or group or organization wants to be heard.
