Join the BCA and Help Make an Impact
The Benedict Canyon Association is a proactive group of homeowners and residents whose mission, since 1946, has been to preserve the beauty, safety, and quality of life in Benedict Canyon.
We monitor traffic problems, attempts by developers to overbuild in our canyon and stay informed of zoning changes and variances that might affect us. When necessary, we take our problems directly to the appropriate government agency. Our association’s advocacy and participation helped write and pass three very important ordinances: The Hillside Ordinance – which limits building heights, and stipulates restrictions on set-backs, side yards, parking problems on sub-standard streets and FAR (Floor Area Ratio to lot size). The Retaining Wall Ordinance – which limits the height and number of retaining walls in the canyon; and most recently the HCR – SUD (Hillside Construction Regulation – Supplemental Use District) Ordinance, commonly referred to as the “Overlay” – which regulates construction & hauling hours, grading limits & quantities of soil that can be exported from a building site and more.
The BCA Board of Directors is comprised entirely of volunteer canyon residents. They contribute countless hours of community service. The BCA sometimes employs outside professionals to assist the Association.
The Benedict Canyon Association is supported entirely by resident contributions. The BCA receives no outside funding and has remained non-political in its 75-year history.
