The City of Los Angeles is out to end homelessness. With an estimated 28,000 people living on LA streets and 47,000 County-wide, encampments have become a familiar part of the urban fabric. Recently, LA voters approved HHH, a $1.2 billion bond measure with a self-imposed property tax assessment of $9.64 for each $100,000 of property valuation. The measure will help build 1,000 housing units for homeless people annually over a 10-year period along with County support services geared toward re-entry into a healthier lifestyle. The implementation period includes units built on city-owned property. Join our panel discussion on the leadership ingredients for this important initiative, development and design challenges, and its possible application for other cities.

 

Our panel speakers:

 

 

 

The Honorable José Huizar

The Honorable José Huizar was elected to the Los Angeles City Council’s 14th District in 2005. He has taken a leadership role in addressing homelessness as the chair of the City’s first-ever Ad Hoc Committee on Homelessness. In Downtown’s Skid Row community, the Councilmember has successfully brought in L.A. County medical, mental health, drug rehabilitation, and other service providers to coordinate with the City as part of the Operation Healthy Streets cleanup initiative. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Berkeley, a Master’s degree in Public Affairs and Urban Planning from Princeton University, and a Juris Doctorate from the UCLA School of Law. He is the first Mexican immigrant elected to the City Council in Los Angeles’ history and in 2004, he became the first Latino to serve on the Princeton Board of Trustees.

Long striving for competitiveness in the international convention and tourism marketplace, the Los Angeles Convention Center/Farmer’s Field partnership held promise. Though the sports venue has gone elsewhere, billions of dollars continue to be invested in Downtown Los Angeles, and the development of eleven new and planned area hotels represent a critical link. A promising strategy for the Los Angeles Convention Center may finally, and permanently, cement the facility’s prominence as a convention and tourism superstar in an increasingly bustling downtown.

Housing and policy direction for a city as large and diverse as Los Angeles requires focused executive and political leadership. An overarching vision must respond to varied expectations and implementation challenges.

How does Mayor Eric Garcetti view the city’s future and how does the mayor intend to use his office to fulfill a vision that improves basic city services and promotes commerce, development, employment opportunity, and meeting varied housing demands, concurrent with measures to advance stable communities across the city?

How will the proposed streamlining of Planning, Building and Safety and the City’s other development services balance efficiency with the public’s desire for more livable and sustainable neighborhoods?

dwpThere is nothing like a drought to focus our attention on the availability of water. Yet the connection between water and electricity usage usually goes unnoticed. Few realize that LA’s annual water consumption has been flat for 30 years while the city’s population has grown by over 1 million inhabitants, or that water management consumes 20% of the state’s electric power. What is the perspective of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the nation’s largest municipally owned public utility, given its mandate to manage water and energy resources? How does it ensure today’s water delivery and future supplies for a growing city?

SCPC would like to give a big thank you to Tony Perez,

The State of the Art –

Form Based Codes

 

Do They Work? How Do We Adopt Them?

Form based codes embody an expressive power.  Exceeding the influence of traditional zoning, this artful place-making tool applies principles and regulations to shape a place’s character, whether neighborhood or city. The resulting high quality urban fabric is achieved by a public process that articulates a community’s unique vision by identifying regulations representing the building blocks of community: form, scale and massing, streets, and public space. 

Planners, architects, urbanists and all those who value well-designed places should attend this event.  The presentation and discussion, led by one of the nation’s leading practitioners of form based codes, will focus on the following topics:

 

  • Where have form based codes helped shape city place-making?
  • Where do form based codes provide benefits beyond zoning and specific plans?
  • What are the key steps for successful adoption and implementation?

 

Our guest speaker:

Tony Perez

Director of Form-Based Coding, Opticos Design, Inc.
Instructor, The Form Based Code Institute, CFD District

 

 

DINNER MENU
