818 or 747? You Decide.

The 818 area code is busting at the seams, and the San Fernando Valley will require an additional area code to bear the burden of all those phone numbers. There will be a public hearing at Buena Vista Library on October 22, starting at 7:00 PM. They will explain the two options - either a clean split or an overlay. Read more about it at the California Public Utilities Commission website.

When discussing my west valley commute with others, the typical response - "Well, at least I work in the same area code" - may not hold for much longer.
