Founded in 1973, the Pacific Palisades Community Council has as its purpose:

  • To be a forum for the discussion of community issues.
  • To be an advocate for the Pacific Palisades to government and private agencies upon those issues where there is broad community agreement.
  • To assist other organizations in the Pacific Palisades which request help in accomplishing their objectives or purposes, and which the Council chooses to support.

As one of the oldest continuously operating councils in Los Angeles, Pacific Palisades Community Council commemorates its 41st anniversary this April. We celebrate another Palisades milestone on April 24, 2014, when the Citizen of the Year Gala will return, sponsored by PPCC. The "Citizen of the Year" and "Sparkplug" Awards will be given to honor Palisadians for unselfish dedication in 2013 to the community through volunteerism, along with a special presentation "Pride of the Palisades" recognition.

PPCC welcomes new organizational and resident representatives to the board notably for neighborhoods adja-cent to the Village including the Alphabet Streets (Area 5), the Huntington Palisades, Via Mesa and Temescal Canyon (Area 6). As the community eagerly awaits potential refurbishment of portions of the Village, PPCC will host an open forum on this topic tentatively scheduled the last week of February 2014. PPCC focuses on other important concerns, including police and fire protection response, city, coastal, mountain and state park resources and the City's effort to rewrite the zoning code.

As President, my collaboration with exceptionally dedicated board members has presented opportunities to address challenges and brought personal gratitude. Thank you to all who encourage, support and challenge me as we work together on the issues we care about.

Please stay tuned, sign up for PPCC's distribution email list at and become informed. More importantly, get involved, support the Council . . . it's your community!
