The Westwood Community Council is an independent California non-profit corporation organized in 2009 to provide a forum for Westwood stakeholders, including businesses, property owners, renters, non-profits, religious institutions, service organizations and seniors.
WCC is governed by Bylaws administered by an independent Board of Directors. Unlike the Westwood Neighborhood Council and the Westwood Design Review Board, WCC is not part of a governmental entity and does not receive public funds. Member organizations and individuals pay annual voluntary dues to cover operating expenses and contribute additional funds for special projects as needed. The Board functions as a forum for exchange of information and discussion of important community issues.
Board members include representatives of four local homeowner organizations, three owners and renters in multifamily neighborhoods, UCLA, Westwood schools, churches, and senior citizens, commercial property owners and business owners north and south of Wilshire Blvd. , non-profits devoted to environmental concerns and community service, and three persons representing Westwood interests “at large.” Committees address a range of issues including Planning and Land Use and Historic Preservation.
WCC meetings occur at least four times each year or more often if necessary, usually on a Tuesday in the Community Room at Belmont Village of Westwood, located at 10475 Wilshire Blvd., next to the Westwood Methodist Church. Parking at Belmont Village is in an underground garage entered from Wilshire Blvd. The agenda for each meeting is posted in advance on this website and in the Westwood Library on Glendon Ave.
WCC works closely with the Westwood Neighborhood Council and other Westwood area organizations and with the Westside Regional Area Council of Neighborhood Councils to ensure that the interests of our community and region are broadly and effectively represented to decision-makers at all levels of government.
