The neighborhood's residents formed the Shadow Hills Property Owners Association in the mid-1960s to fight the planned routing of a Foothill Freeway offramp through the heart of the neighborhood. This would have run along McBroom Street and two segments of Wheatland Avenue, from Wentworth Avenue to Sunland Boulevard. This grassroots organization persuaded the Los Angeles Planning Commission to abandon the proposed route for the offramp, and so preserved the neighborhood's semi-rural character. The Association continues to function today with a slightly different name.[clarification needed]
