The Bel Air-Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council seeks to promote participation in local government and to assist the City of Los Angeles in understanding and responding to the needs and requests of our neighborhood. We welcome you to our website and invite you to explore our many pages and links designed to better inform you of who we are, what we are doing, our goals and accomplishments, and how we act as your liaison to the City of Los Angeles government.
In 1999, a new Los Angeles City Charter created neighborhood councils as quasi city entities to advise city decision-makers, including the Mayor, City Council, commissioners, departmental managers, and staff. During the neighborhood council certification process, the City was divided into many geographic areas and a neighborhood council in each area was empowered to represent the respective communities. The Bel Air-Beverly Crest area formed an organizational group and completed this process. The Neighborhood Council was officially certified on October 8, 2002. Its first Governing Board was elected on March 26, 2003.
The Bel Air-Beverly Crest (BABCNC) has joined a city-wide Neighborhood Council Congress and the city-wide Alliance of Neighborhood Councils to foster communication and coalitions between neighborhoods throughout the City of Los Angeles. We are comprised of a wide variety of volunteer residents and other stakeholders working to improve our community’s quality of life.
The Bel Air-Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council represents the City of Los Angeles hillside communities stretching from Laurel Canyon to Sepulveda Blvd., and from Sunset Blvd. to Mulholland Drive.
As the advocate for more than 27,000 residents, BABCNC is currently made up of representatives from more than 35 residential associations, local schools, businesses, faith-based institutions, in addition to members-at-large.
