The Porter Ranch Neighborhood Council is an organization that is officially certified by the City of Los Angeles to increase our influence with City lawmakers and departments to improve our community. The PRNC came about as a result of Los Angeles City Charter Reform and interested stakeholders in our community.
The Board is elected by stakeholders and holds monthly meetings, usually on the first Tuesday of the month. The Board is comprised of volunteers who want to help you make Porter Ranch a better place to live, work and grow. We can't do it for you, but we can do it with you.
The Board is allocated a budget of $37,000 by the City from your tax dollars.
