@lamag : Westwood can feel like a college town in the midst of a big city. @UCLA’s 419-acre campus is the Westside neighborhood’s centerpiece, a hub of activity with 45,428 students, graduate students, and medical residents as of Fall 2017. But until recently, very few of those students actually had any say in the decision-making processes that shaped the neighborhood’s present and future.
Formed and certified by the city in 2010, the Westwood Neighborhood Council was the neighborhood’s certified advisory board, advising City Council on everything from historic preservation to what kinds of entertainment could take place in the neighborhood’s bars. And they took that responsibility seriously. Tap the link in bio to read more on how UCLA students fought for––and won––the right to shape Westwood's future. #lamag
