Move over 818; here comes 747

SAN FERNANDO VALLEY There's already 818 and 626. Now folks in the Valley may soon be dialing 747 as their area code.

The new area code still has to be approved by the State Public Utilities Commission.

If it is approved, it would take effect next fall. However, the number would only be assigned to new telephone lines.

If you have an 818 area code and want to call a neighbor in the same zone who has the 747 area code, you'll have to dial the full ten digit number.
