It's our first Kuehl Happenings of 2018 and I'm looking forward with great optimism to all the things we might accomplish in this new year!  

As Chair of the Board of Supervisors, I'm committed to achieving a number of goals in our work and for all those we serve -- stability, safety, opportunity, and creativity.  Here's to a bright new 2018!
We're only weeks away from the Greater Los Angeles Homeless Count, January 23-25. This work is critical in gathering up-to-date data and demographic information to help us more effectively address the needs of our homeless neighbors.

Counters are needed in all parts of the County, but most especially in the Valley at our Arleta, Panorama City, and Sylmar dispatch sites. Won't you please join our Valley District Office team who will be counting in Arleta this year?

In 2017, nearly 8,000 people registered to volunteer. Please register today and help us beat that record in 2018!
With retail cannabis sales beginning in 2018, we want to make sure that residents are aware of what is -- and what is not-- permitted in their communities.

The County's Office of Cannabis Management has a host of resources on its website including a thorough FAQs page and information on how to contact them in order to get answers to any questions you might have.

And last, but not least, we bought a mountain!

Thanks to an incredible collaboration of government, residents, environmental leaders, community groups, the philanthropic community, and one very generous Eagle, the "Let's Buy A Mountain" campaign purchased a 17-acre parcel of open space in Laurel Canyon that will be preserved from now on!

Opportunities like these come along only rarely, and, when they do, we have to take advantage of them. By purchasing and preserving this open space and wildlife habitat, we are investing in the future - of our region, and of our planet.
