Welcome to the Valley Care Community Consortiumís map of Service Planning Area 2 (SPA 2). City Snap-shot is a new addition to our Triennial Community Needs Assessment. The idea behind creating a City Snap-shot is to ease the process of acquiring information about a specific city in SPA 2. The web-based City Snap-shot will provide a picture of each city in SPA 2 to more than 250 of our community partners and stakeholders along with anyone interested in acquiring city specific data.
SPA 2 encompasses 999.24 square miles and is the largest of the eight service planning areas in Los Angeles County. SPA 2 consists of thirty-six cities of which ten are incorporated and numerous zip codes. In the San Fernando Valley, SPA 2 extends from Sylmar/Tujunga in the north, Agoura Hills/Calabasas to the west, Glendale/Burbank to the east, and Studio City/Sherman Oaks/Encino/Tarzana to the south. Bordering the San Fernando Valley to the north, the Santa Clarita Valley includes the communities of Canyon Country, Castaic, Newhall, Saugus, Stevenson Ranch, and Valencia.
Over 1.8 million people live in the San Fernando Valley and over 252,000 people living in Santa Clarita Valley, SPA 2 is a culturally, ethnically diverse and is economically, socially distinct.
