On April 6th, 2019 Los Feliz Will Elect 10 District Representatives
Click on a District Below for More Information
District A - Los Feliz Hills
Los Feliz District A is an almost entirely residential area, but it also contains most of Griffith Park.
There’s little doubt the hills are home to many of Los Feliz’s wealthiest residents – with magnificent homes, significant mansions, and some of the most stunning views in all of Los Angeles. Architecturally, you’re just down the street from Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Ennis House” or around the bend from a John Lautner or a Paul Williams home. The hills (and the homes built on them) serve as a scenic backdrop that frames our neighborhood.
Los Feliz Boulevard is the baseline where the hills “start”, and the Boulevard is lined with trees: hundreds of cultivated Deodar Cedars that create one of the most recognizable drives in the city.
District A is also home to famous sites such as the Greek Theatre and the Griffith Observatory, Los Feliz District A is probably one of the most frequently visited places in LA.
District B - Los Feliz Square
With an exclusive gated community, Laughlin Park, in one corner and Thai Town North at another, Los Feliz District B is an eclectic mix of businesses and residences and cultures. It’s the northernmost point of Western Avenue, which, appropriately enough, serves as our western border, delineating Los Feliz from Hollywood.
District B is Los Feliz’s melting pot. With Armenian, Thai, and Korean enclaves (amongst others) within it, it’s also home to schools and churches and associations serving these very distinct communities, including a Buddhist temple. Diverse “mom & pop” shops dot Hollywood Boulevard, and many of the families that run them live nearby.
With a majority of the neighborhood’s buildings being built in the “roaring 20’s,” this area became an affordable option for newcomers to LA, with a large concentration of multi-unit buildings and garden apartment complexes.
District C - Los Feliz Village
District C is where a majority of Los Feliz’s commercial corridors intersect and is almost entirely the area the city designates “Los Feliz Village.” It’s a mixture of residences and businesses that give our neighborhood the bustling feel of a big city, without being too big.
It’s also home to several houses of worship (including a Sikh Temple or Gurdwara), performing stages, movie theatres, schools, and our public library.
Whether they’re just looking to stroll around and browse at eclectic shops or find that place they’ve heard so much about, Angelinos from all over the city and visitors from all over the world usually have an image of Los Feliz Village in their minds before they arrive.
Featuring some of LA’s best bookstores, coffee shops, and restaurants, as well as an iconic bar or two, Los Feliz District C is certainly the bustling center of our neighborhood.
District D - Los Feliz Knolls
District E - Franklin Hills
The Los Feliz area designated Franklin Hills, along with a few more of the streets lying directly to the west of it, makes up our District E.
It’s home to Thomas Starr King Middle School, the quirky and magnificent Shakespeare Bridge, and to a public staircase system that provides vertical walkways connecting Franklin Hills’ narrow, winding streets. Built in the 1920s, these 14 stairways gave pedestrians an express route to the now-defunct street trolleys below.
The Prospect Studios on Talmadge Street has gone by many names since it opened in 1915, but is most famously known as the ABC Television Center, where some of TV’s greatest hits like ‘Barney Miller’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Let’s Make A Deal’, and the long-running soap opera ‘General Hospital’ were produced.
Brothers Walt and Roy Disney opened their first animation studio in District E and lived on Lyric and St. George Streets, “close to the office;” Mickey Mouse was “born” right here in Los Feliz.
Franklin Hills has varied (and eclectic) architectural styles, including some of the finest examples of mid-century modern homes in Los Angeles. Famed architect John Lautner designed the school complex that now houses the Lycée International de Los Angeles (LILA) school, which is designated a Los Angeles historic-cultural landmark.
