News & Events

LHNA Quarterly Meeting – Wednesday, September 8 @ 7:30 p.m.

Please join our quarterly Neighborhood Association meeting on September 8 at 7:30 p.m. While we know everyone is "over" Zoom, it makes it nice and easy to join or listen in while finishing off those bedtimes. And we'll have plenty of in-person events (see below!) this fall.

The agenda will be: Neighborhood Association and Crime Watch membership and updates, upcoming events, and traffic improvements in progress.

This meeting will also serve as a forum to discuss the La Vista speed bumps (and whether or not to replace them with speed cushions). Feel free to bring any other topics or questions to the meeting or email your questions, comments or concerns in advance to board@lakewoodhills.org.

Ladies Night – Thursday, September 16 @ 7 p.m.

Lakewood Hills Ladies Night will be held on Thursday, September 16th from 7:00 - 9:00pm.  We are looking for a host for this month so if you would like to invite us to your house for September, or any other month, please contact Donna Coker.  

It’s an easy event to host and we ask everyone to bring a drink and/or snack to share with the group.  If you have an outdoor space or have room for us inside, we would love to come to your house!  Whether you are able to just stop by for a bit or can stay the whole time, we would love for you to join us.

Watch for an update closer to the date to learn the location for September.  Hope to see you there!

Lindsley Park Groundbreaking Event – Saturday, September 18 

Hope to see everyone on Saturday, September 18 to celebrate Lindsley Park with our neighborhood and Hollywood Santa Monica! We need volunteers to bring coolers, ice, and drinks – please sign up here. If you sign up, purchase, and bring ice, drinks and/or cupcakes to the event, the purchase will be reimbursed; please email receipts to board@lakewoodhils.org

Book Club – Monday, September 20 @ 6:30 p.m.
Thank you Sarah for hosting our last meeting. For our next discussion, we chose Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano. It is about a 12 year old boy, Edward, who is the sole survivor of a plane crash from NY to LA. 

Other considerations: 
Falling by TJ Newman
The Book of Lost Names by Kristen Harmel
A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende
Midnight Library by Matt Haig
A Song of Achilles by Amy Harmon
Molokai by Alan Brennert
For those newer to the neighborhood, we are always open to having new friends/neighbors join our club, so please don’t be shy! We usually meet every other month - outside at someone’s house (due to Covid) or via Zoom at times, bring your beverage of choice and we discuss the last selection and then share other things we have read or heard about and decide on the next month’s book. Please feel free to reach out to stacymach@gmail.com with any questions.

Crime Watch Reminders

Process for Requesting Home Checks While Away

If you are a Crime Watch Member, our ENP officers will check on your home when you're out of town. When you'd like a home check, please email CrimeWatch@LakewoodHills.org with the dates you're going to be away, your address, and any other brief information you deem relevant (e.g., if they should expect anyone there pet sitting). All information provided will of course stay private between our ENP officers and the Crime Watch Board. You may email us as far in advance as you like. Please provide at least 4 days notice as we update the Crime Watch calendar on Sundays and Wednesdays.   

Tips to Prevent Crime

(Based on both feedback from our officers and the Crime Watch Board) 

  • Protect yourself and your loved ones by keeping your doors locked. This includes doors to your house, garage, gates and cars. Most "break-ins" that happen in our neighborhood are because things are left unlocked.
  • Don't leave garage doors open or cars running in the street or driveway, even for a minute. 
  • Don't announce any new purchases by leaving boxes out on the curb during bulk trash week. Break them down and put them in the bins. 
  • Report all security issues to 911 (our patrol officer will be notified immediately if during a shift). After calling 911, e-mail CrimeWatch@LakewoodHills.org. We have a direct line to our ENP officers and will let them know of all incidents, but all incidents (urgent and non, as prioritized by 911) must be reported through a 911 call. You may also report crimes online here.
  • Check your back alleys. Make sure that your alleys are clean from debris and overhanging or overgrown trees and are well-lit. Don't create easy hiding spots. The patrol officers drive through the back alleys to do their checks, so make sure the path is clear for them.
