The CVCA exists because the
Crescenta Valley is broken up into 4 political divisions. And what happens in one of these divisions can greatly affect the quality of life in another division. In the
past, different political entities would not listen to you if you lived in another division. For example, if you live in unincorporated La Crescenta, the city of Glendale wouldn't listen to you - even though you are in the Glendale School District. By pooling our common interests, we are trying to be heard, no matter
where you live, work, pray, go to school, etc.
The CVCA is not designed nor intended to replace existing groups with concerns in the valley. Instead we support them and work with them whenever possible.
These participating groups include:
V.O.I.C.E.: Glendale-Crescenta Volunteers Organized in Conserving the Environment
