The Los Angeles City Planning Commission plays an integral role in shaping how the City of Los Angeles evolves through their consideration of policies and projects. Samantha Millman has served on the commission since 2013 and was appointed president last summer. She'll join us to discuss her role and her priorities for the commission for 2019.
The Los Angeles Department of City Planning is updating the Citywide Design Guidelines, which provide guidance for new development and encourage projects to complement and enhance the existing built environment in the community. We'll also host Claire Bowin, senior city planner at the Planning Department, to hear about the updates and provide input on behalf of the business community with regard to how these guidelines can be improved and what topics should be included during this update. 

The Council will also finalize the 2019 advocacy agenda and begin to delve into relevant state legislation, including SB 50 (Wiener), an updated version of last year's SB 827 to allow for more density near transit-rich corridors.
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 Los Angeles County's homelessness crisis.
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval.
