The Oakridge Esate

Have you ever wondered what is across the street from the Northridge Little League? Come find out! We will have a presentation by the Oakridge Estate Park Advisory Board about the Oakridge Estate, which is located on Devonshire St., just West of Reseda Blvd. It is a 9.5 acre property with an English Tudor style house designed in 1937 by noted architect Paul R. Williams for actress Barbara Stanwyck. In December 2009 Councilman Greig Smith’s office secured Quimby funds to purchase, restore, and improve the Oakie House and grounds preserving it in perpetuity as a community recreational site. The Department of Recreation & Parks appointed the 11 members of the Park Advisory Board to serve as a panel of community stakeholder who will make recommendations for the uses of the property to the Recreation Commission. The Advisory Board will provide PRNC stakeholders more information about the property and the preservation plans. See the Oakridge Estate Website for more photos and information.

While we are looking at local history, we will also have as a guest speaker Gerald R. Fecht, Ph.D. - President of the Museum of the San Fernando Valley, http://www.themuseumsfv.org. He will be speaking about the history of Porter Ranch.

To bring us back to the present we will have new Castlebay Principal, Victoria Littlejohn provide us with an update about the school, planned improvements and opportunities under her leadership.

Join us on Tuesday, November 1, 6pm, at Shepherd of the Hills Church. Plan to join us for our annual holiday party on Tuesday, December 6, 6:30-8pm at the Porter Valley Country Club. Appetizers and desserts will be served. Now you can like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PorterRanchNC

The Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council is an organization that is officially certified by the City of Los Angeles to increase our influence with City lawmakers and departments to improve our community.

The PRNC came about as a result of Los Angeles City Charter Reform and interested stakeholders in our community. The Board is elected by stakeholders and holds monthly meetings, usually on the first Wednesday of the month. The agenda is emailed to those who subscribe (see the green box in the upper corner), on our website here and posted at 11280 Corbin Avenue, Northridge, CA 91326 on a bulletin board facing Corbin street.

The Board is comprised of volunteers who want to help you make Porter Ranch a better place to live, work and grow. We can't do it for you, but we can do it with you.
