Looking for Ways to Make a Difference in Your Community?

Well look no further!

The Rampart Village Neighborhood Council (RVNC) participants are empowered to advocate directly for real change in your community.  RVNC Board Members consist of residents, business owners, and property owners.  They are your neighbors.

Local engagement is important.  No one understands a neighborhood better than the people who live, work and play there. The RVNC answers that need and strengthens democracy in Los Angeles by embracing and supporting the diversity of our neighborhood.

Created by the city charter in 2000 and consisting of 99 NCs throughout the City of Los Angeles, this system of government sponsored grassroots participation is unique. No other city in the nation has this level of involvement in what goes on at City Hall.

Robust participation by stakeholders is critical in providing oversight to the goings on within our city government.

But it doesn’t work without your involvement!

As a board member of the RVNC, you will be an Elected City Official.  You will have access to a budget of tax-payer funds, have deferential treatment at City Hall, receive invites to meetings by other NCs and city agencies discussing the issues of the day, and be able to initiate community projects that benefit you and your neighbors.

The RVNC board is comprised of 11 members. Hit button to see description of seat.
