Welcome to your Neighborhood Association!

History - The WeHo Heights NA was formed by merging the former Shoreham Heights NA - comprising the streets Horn, Sherbourne and Shoreham, with the unaffiliated nearby streets of Larrabee, Clark and Ozeta Terrace, during the first neighborhood meeting since the city of West Hollywood was incorporated in 1984, held at Horn Plaza on June 11, 2007.  For Hollywood History of neighborhood, click here.

Our Neighborhood - WeHo Heights NA represents 1,010 residences on the only streets north of Sunset in West Hollywood.  The primary issues facing the neighborhood are parking, traffic and over-development.  On a recent survey, over 50% of the respondents have lived in WeHo Heights for over ten years, with half of them residents of the neighborhood over twenty years.

Our Goal - To maintain and preserve the quality of life in our little pocket of West Hollywood, and to create continued awareness of this area in front of the leaders of our City as they make decisions that impact this extremely dense hillside residential neighborhood.
