What is santa monica canyon civic association?

Founded in 1947, SMCCA is one of California's oldest civic associations.

Hello Canyonites!

SMCCA is a neighborhood association representing the general Santa Monica Canyon area incorporating more than 1,000 households and several businesses.  We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity and an all-volunteer organization committed to organize on behalf of Canyon residents, or "Canyonites" as we're fondly referred to.

"Santa Monica Canyon.....this small patch of land is precious to its residents, intriguing to outsiders.....some observers call the experience of living in the Canyon 'magical'....."   SANTA MONICA CANYON by Betty Lou Young and Randy Young


The Association is governed by a volunteer board of directors.  Membership dues support our purpose of organizing on behalf of the Canyon residents, and fund programs that help to improve the lives of residents. We also represent and advocate the interests of Canyon residents and relevant civic organizations and governments on issues that impact the Canyon and its residents.  Please read more about our "Accomplishments, Current Projects and Advocacy "in the menu under "What We Do".
