Hello and welcome to eaglerocknews, Eagle Rock’s interactive neighborhood web site and information pipeline. My name is Keith Louie and I am a 17-year Eagle Rock resident and Realtor with Nourmand & Associates. My wife Agnes and I love living in Eagle Rock with our daughter Alexis because we love Eagle Rock's friendly, small-town feel, diverse mix of classic architecture, and eclectic businesses.

For many years I served on the Board of Directors of a local organization called TERA (The Eagle Rock Association), TERA seeks to improve the quality of life in Eagle Rock through beautification, thoughtful land-use and planning oversight, and preservation of our community's historic flavor.

As TERA's Public Meetings/Events Coordinator I organized TERA's public meetings, which are designed to educate and inform attendees about issues affecting Eagle Rock. I've recenly resigned my position on the TERA Board, so for more information about TERA, please visit the TERA website at http://www.tera90041.org/.

Eagle Rock is a great mix of restaurants, cafes, and shops and if you walk along Colorado Blvd. and Eagle Rock Blvd you've probably seen some of the ERMANT project. What is the ERMANT Project you ask? The ERMANT Project consists of 20 modern concrete trash receptacles placed on sidewalks along Eagle Rock and Colorado Boulevards, and on a portion of North Figueroa Street. Each trash receptacle features four large custom ceramic panels, created mainly by local Northeast Los Angeles artists, featuring scenes that reflect the community.

Seventeen artists were commissioned to design and create unique ceramic mosaic panels for each can, celebrating the culture, traditions, history and geography of Eagle Rock. The styles of the panels are eclectic, ranging from folk art to contemporary design. Each of the trash receptacles is sponsored, on an ongoing basis, by a local business that has pledged to regularly empty and maintain it.

The Eagle Rock Association's (TERA) Beautification Committee included representatives from the Arroyo Arts Collective and The Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock. Funding for the Eagle Rock Make Art Not Trash Program was made possible through The Eagle Rock Association (TERA), The Community Beautification Matching Grant of the City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Eagle Rock Community Preservation and Revitalization (ERCPR), Eagle Rock Chamber of Commerce (ERCC), Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council (ERNC), and the Eagle Rock Kiwanis Club. Selected tiles graciously donated by Dal-Tile.

I created this web site for everyone to use and enjoy and to provide another service to the community. The web address eaglerocknews.com was selected to reflect the name of our neighborhood and to make it easy to remember and identify with. Eaglerocknews can be used at your discretion and can be a venue for a resident directory and other general information.

For instance, you can place a classified ad for an item you want to sell, share a favorite recipe, or post information on upcoming events such as a yard sale. You can even post pictures of local events! The “Hobbies & Interests” section is also a great way to meet others who share common interests with you.

Please take the time to look through the site, and if you have comments or suggestions on how I may improve it, please contact me, Keith Louie. Please “bookmark” the site to make it easy to return to it often. It is my hope and desire that this web site becomes the message board of the Eagle Rock community.

I hope you enjoy eaglerocknews, and visit and use it often. And, if I may ever be of assistance, please contact me at (323) 828-1425.
