Northridge Vision — a Long-term Vision for the Community of Northridge
The City of Los Angeles, the Northridge East, West and South Neighborhood Councils, Cal State University Northridge and the North Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce have launched an aggressive campaign to establish a vision and develop a strategic plan for the community of Northridge and Northridge Business District. The vision will consider community goals, the existing Northridge Community Plan and business/tenant mix, local and regional demographics, potential for public and private redevelopment, and prior initiatives. The vision will also focus on the Cal State University Northridge campus as the hub of the community—how best to develop the “college town” personality and synergies between the university’s new performing arts center, and a walkable “village” area of the business district.
