Being a good neighbor in the coming year

L.A. is a big city made of many unique neighborhoods. So when it comes to finding out what is best for your street, your local park, or your intersection, a lot of people have an opinion but few know better than you.

That's why my office is proud to announce that we are partnering with Nextdoor, so we can connect with communities to find out how we can better serve our constituents. In addition to myself, the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment will also be joining Nextdoor so we can stay close to those we serve.

You joined Nextdoor because you care about what happens in your neighborhood. Let’s work together in 2014 to build great neighborhoods and -- in turn -- bring out the greatness in our city.

You can start here by participating in this survey which will tell us what needs to be done to improve the quality of life in your neighborhood.

Thank you for being a good neighbor!
