Reseda Chamber of Commerce (Reseda, Los Angeles, Calif.) (1935-) | Special Collections & Archives

Name: Reseda Chamber of Commerce (Reseda, Los Angeles, Calif.) (1935-)


Historical Note:

The Reseda Chamber of Commerce was formed by area merchants in 1935 to promote the welfare of the community and to cultivate the business and social interests of its members.  In the 1920s and 1930s, Reseda was a small agricultural community in the San Fernando Valley, and was known for its sugar beets, lima beans, and lettuce crops.

Billed as "the ideal home community" in 1943, the area began to attract a larger residential population.  In response to that growth, the chamber involved itself in such municipal concerns as parking, flood control, street development, and zoning issues.  The organization also promoted local business by providing information about the community to attract potential commercial and residential growth.
