I'm Pushing for 'Schneiderville'

Tired of living in "Chatsworth" or "Valley Village" or "Seacrest"? Go ahead and rename your neighborhood -- the city will foot the bill, the L.A. Times reports:

The City Council on Tuesday approved a plan that allows the city to pay the costs of residents renaming their communities.

Under the policy, the city will pay for some new signage and the $2,700 in administrative costs. Community leaders, however, will still have to corral support from residents for the name change and win City Council approval.

In recent years, for example, two Van Nuys neighborhoods were renamed Valley Glen and Lake Balboa in an effort by residents to remake their image.
