Van Nuys is a district within the city of Los Angeles, California, United States.
Van Nuys is in the heart of the San Fernando Valley; the main thoroughfare, Van Nuys Boulevard, is noted for its car dealerships and the Government center (Erwin Street Mall) containing a branch of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Van Nuys police station, the Van Nuys City Hall, and a branch of the Public Library.
Van Nuys used to be the home for a major manufacturing plant for Chevrolet. When the plant was dismantled the site was converted into a shopping mall called The Plant.
Van Nuys, and the San Fernando Valley, is the center of the pornography industry in the United States.
Like many central Valley neighborhoods, Van Nuys was formerly a white middle-class neighborhood as late as the 1970s but the demographics of the area have changed considerably due to white flight. It is now a predominantly Latino neighborhood and has been ravaged by urban decay, gangs, and a high crime rate.
VanNuys Airport was designated by the FAA as a Transport and Reliever Airport during 1995.
The VanNuys Airport is a general aviation airport, with two FAA compliant paved runways, various taxiway interchanges and two unobstructed approach zones located at the north and south perimeters (see Figure 1).
The VanNuys Airport Master Plan project referred to as "the proposed project" consists of general plan and zoning code goals, objectives, policies and measures that are proposed for completion during the next twenty years.
