In 1999, a new Los Angeles City Charter created neighborhood councils as quasi city entities to advise city decision-makers, including the Mayor, City Council, commissioners, and departmental managers, and staff. During the neighborhood council certification process, the City was divided into many geographic areas and a neighborhood council in each area was empowered to represent the respective communities. The Bel Air-Beverly Crest area formed an organizational group and completed this process. The Neighborhood Council was officially certified on October 8, 2002. Its first Governing Board was elected on March 26, 2003.
The Bel Air-Beverly Crest (BABCNC) has joined a city-wide Neighborhood Council Congress and the city-wide Alliance of Neighborhood Councils to foster communication and coalitions between neighborhoods throughout the City of Los Angeles. We are comprised of a wide variety of volunteer residents and other stakeholders working to improve our community’s quality of life.
