The association is considered one of the most powerful in Los Angeles, having successfully fought off the 1960s up-[[zoning]] that occurred in areas such as Palms and [[West Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California|West Los Angeles]]. Homes located within the boundaries of the association generally sell for higher prices than those outside of it, perhaps due to the strict enforcement of [[restrictive covenant]]s by the association. The boundaries of the association area are roughly Robertson Blvd. on the east, Airdrome St. on the north, Rancho Park on the west, and Cattaraugus Avenue on the south. {{-}} ==Demographics== In 2009, the ''[[Los Angeles Times]]'''s "Mapping L.A." project supplied these Beverlywood neighborhood statistics: population: 6,080; median household income: $105,253. ==Government and infrastructure== The [[Los Angeles County Department of Health Services]] SPA 5 West Area Health Office serves Beverlywood. ===Police=== [[Los Angeles Police Department]] operates the West Los Angeles Community Police Station at 1663 Butler Avenue, 90025, serving the neighborhood. ==Education== [[Image:Palms Middle School.jpg|thumb|[[Palms Middle School]]]] The neighborhood is within the [[Los Angeles Unified School District]].
