Dear LFIA Members, Neighbors, and Friends,
We all love Los Feliz--Griffith Park, the Observatory, the history, the trees along the boulevard, the architecture, the diversity. However, good neighborhoods do not happen by accident--they take dedication and vigilance. For almost 95 years, the Los Feliz Improvement Association, a volunteer group of your neighbors, has worked to fulfill its mission of “improving the lives of residents of the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles.”
Thanks to the support of our members, the LFIA remains one of the most influential neighborhood organizations in the City. When the LFIA speaks, people listen. However, we need your support now more than ever. Our neighborhood is under increasing threat. Crime, traffic, decaying infrastructure and over-development have all been made worse by State and City budget cuts. Meeting these challenges requires successful organizations like the LFIA and we can only continue to be successful with your support.
We understand that we’re all inundated with requests for money these days and, with the current state of the economy, we’re all scrutinizing these requests more than ever. Perhaps you’re asking: Why should I become a member of the LFIA? What does the LFIA do that benefits me? Good questions. You should know that the LFIA:
works with the police and fire departments to keep our neighborhood safe;
works to protect and preserve Griffith Park;
works to improve traffic and make street repairs;
supports our local schools and libraries;
represents the residents of Los Feliz at City meetings and hearings;
plants trees and cleans up our streets;
keeps residents informed through our newsletters and website.
Most importantly, we stay connected with you, our members, and do our best to convert your concerns to action.
Our continued success depends on a large and supportive membership.
Please become part of the team and join the LFIA now!
