Encino Park Group Lauds Reporting

March 03, 1994

* The Encino Park Improvement Committee appreciates your reporting (Feb. 10) on how neighbors on two blocks in Encino Park helped one another after the Jan. 17 earthquake and why our homes survived so well.

EPIC has been active in reducing crime since its founding in 1980, and introduced tract-wide Neighborhood Watch in 1990. We relinquished it and our emergency response network in 1992 to others who wanted to administer them tract-wide. Nonetheless, we got many calls after the earthquake from residents requesting help, and we provided it.

Other major EPIC efforts include working to save our tract from exploitation by apartment developers since our shopping center was torn out in 1980, distributing questionnaires for tract-wide votes on community issues such as rapid transit, holding a time-consuming and costly beautification awards program in 1992 and having a get-out-the-vote campaign in 1993.

The Times has reported most of this. Thank you. Your help has been invaluable and shows the importance of a newspaper that supports the community as your Valley Edition does.
