The Tarzana Property Owners' Association was formed in 1962 from several existing
neighborhood groups in the interest of furthering community growth and development. In
the late 1960s the group worked to establish park lands, and open spaces due to rapid
commercial growth in Tarzana. Other issues the group dealt with included the disparity
between acreage requirements in the Master Plan for Tarzana vs. requirements for Tarzana
Developers, especially regarding the keeping of horses and the need for buffer zones
between commercial and residential properties contiguous to Ventura Boulevard.
