Arleta Chamber of Commerce
Arleta is a district in the San Fernando Valley region of the City of Los Angeles, California. It was considered part of Pacoima until the late 1960s, when the areas of Pacoima west of the Golden State Freeway (I-5) "seceded" and formed a new community area.
Arleta is bordered by the Los Angeles districts of Mission Hills and North Hills on the west, Sun Valley on the east, Pacoima on the southeast, Panorama City on the south, and the City of San Fernando on the north. It lies within the 6th City Council district.
Arleta is accessible from the Golden State Freeway (I-5) and the Hollywood Freeway (SR 170). Major thoroughfares include Van Nuys Boulevard, Woodman Avenue, Arleta Avenue, as well as Sheldon, Branford, Osborne and Terra Bella Streets. Metro Rapid route 761 provides fast transit on Van Nuys Boulevard, and Metro route 158, goes up Woodman Avenue, but turns on Arleta Avenue via Brandford Street, and continues along Devonshire St into Granada Hills, Northridge, and Chatsworth, respectively.
The boundaries of Arleta are roughly Paxton Avenue on the northwest, Laurel Canyon Boulevard on the northeast, Tonopah Avenue on the southeast, and Woodman Avenue on the southwest, making the square area about four (4) miles.
