A Great Place to Live…

Woodland Hills is a great place to live and, based on the statistics, one of the most popular places to work.

As for tourism, it doesn’t rank so high and, as a result of the Mayor’s Budget “crisis” things probably won’t be changing in the near future.

Villaraigosa had originally pledged almost $2 million to fund the effort to bring more tourists to the San Fernando Valley but a year and a half into the three year program and no money has been allocated.

Councilmember Wendy Greuel first suggested the Valley effort and is still hopeful that the City will be able to partner with LA Inc. in bringing convention and tourism dollars to the Valley.

Meanwhile, a discussion is brewing on LAist on whether the Valley should be satisfied with simply being a great place to live, work and play, for locals only!

  1. I can’t believe we are re-living this issue over and over. We had a chance to secede in 2002 with Measures F and H – why did this fail. Every neighbor I had in Woodland Hills approved that measure.
    (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Fernando_Valley#Secession_movement)

    but we’re still glommed on to this dysfunctional city named Los Angeles. Very frustrating reading articles like this.

  2. This article is a reminder to me how frustrating it is to live in such a great place as Woodland Hills but have to endure the dysfunction of Los Angeles city. We had a chance to seceded in 2002 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Fernando_Valley#Secession_movement) but ultimately, narrowly defeated by a campaign of misinformation and lies. We MUST secede from this dysfunctional malaise called Los Angeles city.
