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.
