The Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council (GWNC) is our local neighborhood council. It connects and overarches sixteen adjacent neighborhoods that stretch roughly (north-south) from Melrose to Olympic, and (east-west) from Western to La Brea. Its mission is to give a voice to the grassroots, and to mediate between individual neighborhoods and city
bureaucracies, especially in matters of development and land use. Our neighborhood council was formally certified two years ago and its first official board was elected in June of 2005. Board meetings are held about six times a year and they are open to the public.
St. Andrews Square together with
the Ridgewood-Wilton Neighborhood Association constitutes AREA 10 of
the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council. Area 10 has one Representative on
the NC board, and one official “Alternate” who is empowered to vote in the
absence of that representative.
