Copyright 2013. Original Grand Central Neighborhood Association. All Rights Reserved.
Our mission is to help mitigate or resolve issues that negatively
impact quality of life in our neighborhood.
Per a survey that we circulated in 2012, Grand Central residents cited traffic congestion, parking, construction, and public safety as the top concerns, along with noise (traffic, helicopter and train), light pollution, and view protection.
Like many of Glendale’s neighborhood and home-owner associations, we do not collect dues. Membership is open to all residents, homeowners and renters alike. While we will collaborate with area businesses, these entities are not eligible to join the OGCNA. This is because their operations and goals – more employees, vendor traffic, increased business, etc., often have negative impacts here.
Grand Central, which began as an airfield, is a unique mix of single- and multi-family homes, global enterprises and small businesses, local infrastructure (Glendale’s Steam Electric Power Plant), a small park (Griffith Manor), and
