Council Process: Everyone who lives, works, owns property, attends school, is a member of a faith organization or works in a non-profit organization that provides services within the boundaries of the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council is a "stakeholder." All stakeholders are members of the Council. Stakeholders elect a Governing Board to represent them. This Board is recognized as the decision-making entity by the City of Los Angeles and was elected on October 30, 2007. While the Board is an official decision-making entity, meetings are conducted as much as possible in a town hall format. Committees are open to anyone with an interest in East Hollywood. The East Hollywood Neighborhood Council depends on the active public participation of its diverse, dynamic and unique community for its success. Posting Sites: Meeting notices and agendas are posted at the following locations within East Hollywood (three days in advance for regular meetings and one day in advance for special meetings). The official posting is at The Hollywood Hotel, 1160 N. Vermont Avenue and on our website at www.easthollywood.net. The agenda may also be posted at: (1) Armen Realty, 5111 W. Santa Monica Boulevard (2) Stakeholder Residence, 772 N. Kenmore (3) Against The Stream, 4300 W. Melrose. You can receive notices and agendas by e-mail.
