Hello,

I'm targeting living in either the West SFV (either West Hills or Woodland Hills) or Conejo Valley. My understand is that the West SFV is extremely hot in the summer whereas the Conejo is supposed to be cooler. Looking at average monthly temperatures at weather.com, I am finding no difference in the months of July-Sept when looking at Westlake, Agoura, Woodlands Hills, and West Hills. Is this true?

Conejo is probably a few degrees cooler, but not much.

Averages 8-10 degrees cooler.

To compare, go to this site. Type in 91362 (Thousand Oaks), then look at the tabs, see "history." then repeat using 91364 (Woodland Hills) and you can see for yourself.

Weather should not be the factor of Conejo vs West SFV...both are hot in the summer and you will use your AC. The more important question is lifestyle and commute. If you have a need to be closer to LA (Hollywood or Westside), then living out in Conejo is really inconvenient on a daily basis. On the other hand, if you are talking a commute between Conejo and West SFV, then it's not too bad to each place either way.

I work near the Santa Monica Promenade and currently live in the Palms area. I've getting incredibly burnt out on the overpopulation, noise, and rudeness of all the people in the area. I'm in my 30's but am definitely not into the night life much. I want to live somewhere where it is nice and quiet in the evenings, as suburban as possible. I have the flexibility to come into work early if I desire and as such the West SFV or more Eastern side of the Conejo sounds quite doable to me. Especially with the canyon routes being the best access point to where I work.

if you have kids then the conejo valley is better because of the schools. conejo valley also generally has a newer housing stock. SFV is serviced by LA city, so you have that downside as well. however, woodland hills and surrounding communities are superior for shopping and dining IMHO.

Nope. Use AC about 5-6 times a YEAR in CV.

You have the right instinct. Hope you read the Ventura County forum here.

Conejo definitely has greater marine influence than the SFV. It is still an inland feeling, to be sure. But not as hot in summer as the SFV. Probably more frost in the winter although that is a personal anecdote, I have not looked at actual stats.

Well Canejo Valley is an excellent choice, given the Canejo Valley Archery Range.
