History/Geography

Located in the northwest portion of Council District 11, the community of Pacific Palisades was founded in 1922 by Methodist residents.  The community they created spawned into what is today a primarily residential area – containing single family homes, and condominiums and apartments – with a small business district at its core, known to residents as “the Village”.  Pacific Palisades is home to some 27,000 residents, and is one of Los Angeles’ safest and most affluent communities, with some of its best public schools.  However, the area is perhaps best known for its natural beauty, ranging from its parkland and hiking trails, to breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean.
