L.A. Area Chamber

Join us to hear Councilmember Ed Reyes' priorities as Chair of the Los Angeles City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee (PLUM). Councilmember Reyes will also present his district's Cornfields Arroyo Specific Plan (CASP), which incorporates mixed-use residential communities, removes parking requirements and increases open space. Hailed as a potential model Transit-Oriented Development plan, the CASP is the nation's first public sector master plan to win certification from the U.S. Green Building Council as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Neighborhood Development project. 

 

We will also discuss the Chamber's 2013 Advocacy Agenda for Land Use, Construction, and Housing priorities. Join us to provide your insight and voice to this important discussion. 

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.
