At the September 2009 meeting the WNC voted to support keeping the Sepulveda VA facility to support veterans. The WNC joins 9 other Neighborhood Councils against a proposal to convert 2 medical buildings to apartment complexes.
At issue is the proposed conversion of two urgently needed medical buildings 4 and 5 (formerly the psychiatric unit) into a 147 unit apartment complex, plus two managers units, at the Sepulveda VA Medical Center in North Hills, CA. The Veterans, and their supporters, want the buildings, which are immaculate and in good condition, refurbished and staffed as medical buildings to house 300-350 Veterans undergoing treatment at any given time. The apartments would house only 147 permanently.
