City History

A partner of the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company,Gen Moses Hazeltine Sherman, developed Sherman Oaks. In 1991, a group of homeowners living in the Chandlers Estates area, successfully petitioned former Los Angeles City Councilmember Zev Yaroslavsky to re-draw the boundaries of Sherman Oaks from Magnolia to Burbank Blvd to the north, and from Coldwater Canyon to Van Nuys Blvd to the west. Few weeks later a 45 block area bordered by Van Nuys Boulevard on the east and the San Diego Freeway on the west, and between Burbank and Magnolia Boulevards, also successfully petitioned Los Angeles City council. After some time all boundaries were eliminated and Sherman Oaks became what it is today.
