Founded in 1973, PPCC is an all-volunteer 501 (c) (3) non profit organization that provides a forum for the discussion of community issues and advocates to government and private agencies on those issues where there is broad community agreement.
PPCC is one of the oldest volunteer organizations of its type in the City of Los Angeles and served as a model for the current Neighborhood Council system.
PPCC’s Board includes elected area representatives from all residential neighborhoods of the Palisades; an elected at-large representative; and representatives appointed by important community organizations. The PPCC Board holds two public meetings a month, except during July, August, November and December, when one public meeting is held, and considers a broad range of matters of community concern. Specific meeting dates are indicated on the Calendar page. Interested persons are invited to browse through this website to learn more about PPCC’s work, its Committees, and the types of issues it tackles on a regular basis.
PPCC is also proud to sponsor the annual Citizen of the Year and Golden Sparkplug Awards, and from time to time bestows special Pride of the Palisades honors. These accolades are presented to deserving citizen volunteers who are recognized at PPCC’s annual December Awards Gala. For further details, please go to Awards Guidelines & Honoree Archive.
