Neighborhood Council Board members are volunteers, serving as public officials that are elected by the members of their community. The Sherman Oaks Board members serve four-year terms of office. The current term period will begin on July 1, 2023 and run to June 30, 2027.
Eligible candidates can be residents, business owners, property owners, or community interest advocates who are key participants in local non-profit/service organizations. Candidates need not be US citizens or legal residents to qualify. Participation is also open to the formerly incarcerated. The minimum age to run for a council seat is 18.
In conformity with the September 16, 2021 enactment of California State Assembly Bill 361(Rivas) and due to concerns over Covid-19, the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council meetings will be conducted entirely with a call-in option or Internet-based service option.

From the SONC Airport Committee:
Background LAWA is trying to sidestep the City Council’s call for an update to the 2006 VNY Airport Plan by doing a “Vision Study” instead. LAWA held one superficial virtual open house meeting at the start of the Vision Study in February. LAWA will be holding the second round of open houses, one in-person on April 19th, and one virtual on April 22nd. At these open houses LAWA will be presenting the results of an inventory of existing facilities and leases and requesting attendees input on potential uses for “opportunity” redevelopment sites that LAWA has identified. While our main objective is still to urge the City Council to force LAWA to do a real Airport Plan, we want to make sure that the record reflects what the impacted communities vision is for VNY, rather than the aviation industry’s vision. It is important that there be a large turnout at both events, particularly the in-person open house, since LAWA has already suggested that out of the million plus residents in the SFV only a very small portion seem to be concerned about past and continued growth in jet operations at VNY. Let’s show them they are wrong!
