All in favor of it say so! For those foreigners, Valley City is the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles and has petitioned many times to secede from the city of L.A..

While other, proposed, names for the city include San Fernando Valley, Mission Valley, & Camelot (why?), I believe Valley City to be the most appropriate.

from Wiki: "Had the measure passed, the southern portion of the city would have remained as the city of Los Angeles, with about 2.1 million people. The northern Valley portion would have created a new municipality of 211 square miles (546 km2) with about 1.3 million residents. Then the ranking at that time in 2002, if secession had passed, would have had the nation's most populous cities as: New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia, and the new "City of San Fernando Valley" ."

Basically...

New York City
Chicago
Los Angeles
Houston
Philadelphia
Valley City

Of course now a days it might look like...

New York City
Los Angeles
Chicago
Houston
Phoenix
Valley City

Another reason I would enjoy having Valley City separate from Los Angeles is the competition that would come from the cities being right next to each other. I love competition haha. Population wise for California it would be...

Los Angeles
San Diego
Valley City
San Jose
San Francisco

But San Diego and Valley City would be constantly fighting for second place I feel as far as population goes.

I think the valley is just too different then LA, different culture, different everything, and I think they'd be better off being able to make thier own decisions, rather than rely on LA all the time, which is imo completely different then the valley in terms of culture, it's why NYC has the borough system

I'm only for it if the people there want to do it.

Otherwise, I think Los Angeles is a very powerful city when it's united. Everyone there comes together to put Los Angeles on the map, it's not just those in West Hollywood.

Lol, plus this would be a bad idea if Los Angeles wanted to stay ahead of Chicago by population. So I would not recommend it.

Yes, it should be done. Separating the valley would help make LA more manageable.

Nobody in LA gives a rats a** as well It isn't even talked about and when it came up for a vote 8 yrs ago even the people in the San Fernando valley only voted 50% for separating from Los Angeles. It's a non-issue.

I think it would be much better if this was done as violently as possible. No guns, but lots of nun-chucks and pikes and swords. Valley people vs all the other Angelenos. I'm all for this. Put it on pay-per-view.

I don't even understand why this would happen. Is this even possible? It would be interesting to see a city succeed from another and it would make Chicago larger than L.A again, which would be fun, but insignificant.
