Correspondence files include letters by Board members to Mayor Tom Bradley, Councilman Marvin Braude from the 11th District and Councilwoman Laura Chick from the 3rd District.
Background
The Tarzana Property Owners' Association was formed in 1962 from several existing neighborhood groups in the interest of furthering community growth and development. In the late 1960s the gruop worked to establish park lands, and open spaces due to rapid commercial growth in Tarzana. Other issues the group dealt with included the disparity between acreage requirements in the Master Plan for Tarzana vs. requirements for Tarzana Developers, especially regarding the keeping of horses and the need for buffer zones between commercial and residential properties contiguous to Ventura Boulevard.
