Valley Village

It didn't really start as a city, but instead as a community.

Welcome to Valley Village

History

Valley Village has an interesting history indeed. It didn't really start as a city, but instead as a community. The original Valley Village community was brought together back in 1939. It was located within North Hollywood which is part of the San Fernando Valley. But again, Valley Village did consider itself its own community even tho it was officially part of North Hollywood. 

One of the key differences that separated Valley Village from North Hollywood was that Valley Village was considered a more upscaled area with parkways, cycling paths, small parks, and a recreation center. And that is at the heart of why the Valley Village community was formed. It was for people striving for a better way of living. An area that was more a community for families and not to be overcrowded with businesses and high rises. It's because of that commitment that in the 1990s, Valley Village was legally recognized as its community by the Los Angeles City Council.

Today, 22,000 residents reside in Valley Village. And even tho there are businesses and shops in Valley Village, they have gone thru great lengths so preserve its founding philosophy of remaining as a community. 

In 1993, several building restrictions were ratified. Examples of said restrictions are certain commercial enterprises are prohibited, placement of balconies on apartment buildings is regulated as well as requiring a certain level of landscaping, new commercial buildings can not be higher than 36 feet and homes cannot be higher than 30 feet, and more. So as you can see, Valley Village strives to be a low-rise community so that the residents aren't overshadowed by large corporations and that it always remains a community geared towards its residents.
