Resources for Ladera Heights residents:

  • Ladera Heights Civic Association - The Ladera Heights Civic Association represents the interests of residents of Ladera Heights. You should join this organization and support their activities. The annual dues are only $20 and are used to support the activities of the association, including newsletters and community projects. There are many issues of importance to Ladera residents, from schools, Sheriff's patrol, the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, issues related to filming in Ladera Heights, etc. A few years ago, the association's ability to organize residents in opposition to projects like the power plant that was proposed to be built on the oil fields along La Cienega demonstrated their community involvement, commitment, and power. Currently, the LHCA is working diligently to change our school district. We need to have our voices heard in support of acquiring rights for more parkland for the Baldwin Hills Conservancy and other similar issues. We need more Ladera residents to get involved to better our community.
  • The Baldwin Hills Conservancy - The Baldwin Hills Conservancy is a state-appointed board whose mission is to acquire open space within the Baldwin Hills Area. The activities of the conservancy are very important to Ladera Heights residents seeking to improve access to open space in the community, and to head off adverse development in the area that is currently occupied by the oil fields north of Ladera Heights.
  • Los Angeles County guide to services for unincorporated areas - Most of Ladera Heights is located in the unincorporated part of Los Angeles County (although a small part is located in the City of Los Angeles).
