Washington, DC – On Thursday, October 22, 2015, the Department of Veterans Affairs published their proposed Master Plan for the West Los Angeles Campus. The plan will be open for public comment through December 7, 2015. In response, Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-Westlake Village) released the following statement:

“Many veterans in Ventura County and across Southern California rely on the West Los Angeles Medical Center campus for healthcare and affordable housing, so it is crucial that veterans’ voices are heard on this major proposal,” said Congresswoman Brownley. “I encourage Ventura County veterans, their families, and veteran stakeholders in our community to weigh in, as well as share their comments with my office. It is with your input that I can best advocate for your interests and views regarding the campus design.”

Brownley is a strong supporter of modernizing and improving the 388-acre West Los Angeles VA Campus, which contains a full-service VA hospital, long-term care units, mental health facilities, medical research and physician training programs, a veterans’ cemetery, parks and open spaces, numerous historical buildings, and housing for homeless veterans.
