Welcome to Council District 5 (CD5) - the heart of Los Angeles. Council District Five includes many of the best places in Los Angeles - even in the entire country.

CD5 is located in the heart of Los Angeles encompassing the communities of Bel Air, Beverly Crest, Beverlywood, California Country Club, Carthay Circle, Century City, Cheviot Hills, Comstock Hills, Fairfax, Melrose, Palms, Pico-Robertson, Roscomare, Tract 7260, West of Westwood, Westside Village, Westwood, Westwood Gardens, and Westwood South of Santa Monica.

According to the most recent census, CD5 is home to almost 260,000 diverse residents. According to census categories, the district population is 10% Asian, 3% Black non-Hispanic, 8% Hispanic/Latino, 74% White non-Hispanic, and 4% mixed race. The district includes many thriving residential neighborhoods, with approximately 46% homeowners and 54% renters.

From world famous UCLA to Century City - from the fabulous restaurants and shops on Ventura Blvd. to those on Melrose - from the backyards of the Hollywood Hills to the front yards of Encino, CD5 is the place to be.

CD5 has it all. We invite you to eat, drink, shop, work, worship and live in CD 5 and, overall, explore the many diverse neighborhoods of CD 5. You will not be disappointed.
