History

For over 50 years, the Encino Property Owners Association (EPOA) has been a stalwart advocate for Encino
residents. In the 1970s, EPOA shaped residential protection laws along Ventura Blvd, setting height limits
adopted in various Los Angeles areas. Through the 1980s and 1990s, EPOA successfully prevented Hollywood
Park Racetrack’s relocation, opposed high-rise development, and supported neighborhood retail projects. Since
2000, EPOA has also represented the community on the Encino Neighborhood Council, demonstrating a
consistent commitment to safeguarding the quality of life for Encino residents.

At EPOA, we champion and actively advocate for our members on a daily basis. Recently, the EPOA has been a
unifying force for the community, achieving several impactful initiatives. This includes the successful removal of
homeless encampments under the 101 freeway underpasses at Balboa, Hayvenhurst, White Oak, and Encino
Park. Additionally, the association has advocated for the removal of the dilapidated Amestoy Pedestrian Bridge,
assisted Amestoy Estates’ residents in preventing the replacement of the Encino Pedestrian Bridge, saving
taxpayers $20 million, and persistently demanded the enforcement of anti-gridlock measures on Ventura Blvd.

EPOA has also supported White Oak Ave. residents in opposing the Chik-Fil-A drive-thru, addressing noise
disturbances, and reporting and removing party houses and other illegally operated properties. Furthermore, the
association has maintained direct communication with LAPD Police Chief and West Valley Captain to address the
rise in crime and other community matters.
