Saturday, March 3, 2018

The housing crisis in California is hitting communities large and small. For decades, we’ve built homes without fully taking into consideration transportation needs, and nowhere is that more evident than in our own backyard. 

With skyrocketing rents and home prices across Southern California coupled with the nation’s worst traffic congestion, Los Angeles is at a tipping point. Can we shift our way of thinking to focus not solely on building more homes, but building sustainable communities? 

Please join me and our special guest, Senator Scott Weiner for a town hall discussion on housing. We’ll cover the scope of the problems facing us as well as proposed solutions, including Senator Wiener’s SB 827. You’ll hear from experts and advocates on what’s ahead for our region, the potential impact of legislation, and have an opportunity to share your thoughts and recommendations.

Saturday, February 17, 2018

As we move further into the 21st century and strive to modernize the way we get around, we must focus on new ways to reduce congestion and increase our sustainability and interconnectivity. Let’s face it; the difficulties of becoming less car-dependent are real. For more than half a century, Angelenos have been in love with their cars. I hope you’ll join me for a panel discussion about some of the exciting projects on the horizon and the future of sustainable transportation in the region.

Featuring representatives from SCAG, Metro, DOT, and more!
