THE TOWN COUNCIL SERVING TOPANGA SINCE 1977
Formed in 1977 in response to needs unique to our mountain community, residents created the TCTC to serve as a liaison with our town’s official governing body, the Los Angeles County Supervisor’s Office. Since then, TCTC has served the local interests of the residents, businesses, property owners, environment and wildlife in Topanga Canyon and the Santa Monica Mountains. Most especially, during its 40-year history, its many accomplishments have been made possible by the commitment and contributions of many dedicated volunteers working to make Topanga a better place to live and work.

It's that time of year---brush clearing around your home!
Los Angeles is subject to hot weather, high winds, dryness and overgrowth, which create fire hazards when combined. It is important you brush clear your property and create a defensible space around your home to ward off potential fire disasters. Firefighters credit brush clearance with preventing a major loss of homes and other damage during the wildfire. Most brush fires start on uncleared, overgrown areas with lots of fuel (such as dead branches, tree parts and dry leaves), so brush clearance is considered a crucial barrier when flames reach developed areas. Although brush clearance inspections occur one a year, remember that maintenance is a year-round responsibilty. The LA County Fire Code requires all structure owners to comply with brush clearance requirements in an area up to 200' from structures. To help you following safe brush clearing guidelines, please read on.
