AIA|LA Political Outreach Committee

Should We Levy a Fee On Market-Rate Housing to Pay for Affordable Housing?
Integrating Design Thinking into Public Policy that Impacts the Built Environment

This meeting will serve as a chance for the POC to debate and reach consensus on a concise set of goals that AIA|LA can share to promote greater housing affordability at the city.  Once consensus has been reached, it will be shared with the AIA|LA Board of Directors and the community-at-large.

Background

Recently at the LABC Housing Summit,  Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a proposal that would possibly levy a fee on market-rate housing to secure a dedicated source of funding for affordable housing. This was subsequent to a recent set of remarks announced at the BIA Housing Summit. Also, the Sustainable Communities for All Coalition recently released a draft letter to share comments and recommendations to the Governor’s Strategic Growth Council.

In effort for AIA|LA to demonstrate leadership on this initiative, we’d like to  to deliver substantial recommendations to share with the City, the County and the State by the end of the year. Your input matters. Do join us for this compelling conversation.

The AIA|LA Political Outreach Committee

The AIA|LA Political Outreach Committee (POC) mission is to help establish a political voice for architects and perform leadership outreach to policy makers and elected officials on matters of importance to AIA|LA and its membership. The POC’s goals and objectives are to develop policy positions on matters related to the built environment, urban design, and the practice of architecture. The POC can serve both as a catalyst that initiates new policy and as an advocate and advisor that encourages and promotes proposed policies already in development.
