Welcome to the Valley!

I love the San Fernando Valley. It's where my wife and I are raising our children, where my parents are enjoying their golden years and home to the best people in the nation. It is an honor to serve and a privilege to represent the Valley on the Los Angeles City Council.

Please explore the resources offered on this website and remember that my staff and I, whether based out of my district office in Reseda or at City Hall, are here to serve you above all else. Please feel free to stop by – we are ready to help. Together we will work to achieve our shared goals and create the Los Angeles it should, can, and deserves to be. 

Thank you.

    Reimagine Ventura Boulevard – The Commercial Heart of the San Fernando Valley Deserves Attention

    Ventura Boulevard holds a special place in the hearts and minds of most San Fernando Valley residents. Date night at Monty’s Steakhouse. Taking the kids for a games at Corbin Bowl or Bowlero. Ordering a custom birthday cake at Bea’s Bakery. Picking up the keys to your first new car at Vista Ford. All of these things happen on Ventura Boulevard. It is the San Fernando Valley’s Main Street, and it’s iconic enough that it easily goes the by “the Boulevard” or just “Ventura.” But this area has the potential to be even better, and I welcome the opportunity to help it thrive, both with my “Reimagine Ventura Boulevard” initiative, and eventually with appropriate updates to the area’s Ventura-Cahuenga Corridor Specific Plan. Both “Reimagine Ventura” and opening the Specific Plan were ideas spawned by neighborhood businesses and concerned residents.  Our “Reimagine” efforts were sparked by the Woodland Hills Neighborhood Council, and the Specific Plan update request came from the Tarzana Neighborhood Council. I was more than ready to embrace these ideas, especially considering the local support driving them, and through these grassroots discussions, we can make a positive mark on our community.

    Community Plan Updates in the West Valley

    This summer the Department of City Planning (DCP) will begin a conversation with community members and stakeholders about the City’s upcoming update to the Community Plans for the West Valley. These conversations will inform and drive how the City balances needed growth with necessary protections for single family home neighborhoods. Councilmember Blumenfield is working with DCP to ensure that the community plan update process is open, transparent and inclusive. Every step of the way West Valley residents must have an opportunity to stand up and make their voices heard. Few things stir more emotion than decisions about development in our neighborhoods, and Blumenfield wants all of the communities in the West Valley to have all of the information needed to understand and shape the process.  Blumenfield explained, “We who live in the West Valley love our communities and the updating of the plans must reflect our collective values, priorities, and vision.”Throughout the summer there will be meetings led by the DCP in the West Valley specifically regarding the Community Plans, continuing the dialogue on the needs future of the West Valley. For more information on the community plan update process as well as tools on how to be a better advocate please go here. Below, please find the meeting in your community and click here to RSVP.
