My name is Matthew Zavala and I am an MSW student at USC. I am writing a community Immersion Paper on East Hollywood. I would like to know more about outreach effort to the community and the challenges in getting community members involved in decision making.
I am interested in how East Hollywood Neighborhood Council influences City policy. How is the relationship you have with Council member Mitch O’Farrell and the District 13 office, Mayor Garcetti and any other policy makers and how East Hollywood Neighborhood council influences policy that affects the community.
I am also interested in what the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council sees as the strengths, weaknesses, and challenges that the community faces.
