Join us for a meeting of the Land Use, Construction & Housing council.
New year, new planning and transportation policies
Wednesday, Jan. 24
9:30 - 11:00 a.m.

L.A. Area Chamber 
350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017

Los Angeles City Councilman José Huizar is planning to join us to discuss his 2018 priorities as chair of the Planning and Land Use Management Committee.

The City of Los Angeles is using data more than ever before in designing policies that will impact how we approach planning and development. City agencies are working together on both the implementation of SB 743
, which requires CEQA transportation analyses to transition from Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) to Level of Service (LOS), and updating the City's Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Ordinance. Both of these policies will be major factors in guiding transportation and land use decisions for decades to come. We'll be joined by Rubina Ghazarian from the Department of City Planning and David Somers from the Department of Transportation as they share their findings on the data used to shape these new guidelines and what changes we can expect to see.

We will also be discussing 2018 state legislation, updates on CEQA, and the attempt to repeal the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act on the November ballot.
The Land Use, Construction & Housing Council advocates for policies and programs that create sustainable, economically robust communities through smart growth planning, public-private partnerships and investment in congestion relief solutions. This also includes a special focus on building more workforce housing, reforming the city's planning and permitting process, strengthening our public transportation system and addressing L.A. County's homelessness crisis. The Transportation & Goods Movement Council addresses all issues related to our region's mobility - highway, rail, air and transit. 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.  
Special Guests: 

Honorable José Huizar
Los Angeles City Council

Rubina Ghazarian 
City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning
