The Los Angeles County Arts Commission invites and architects and designers to share critical feedback and recommendations to improve the Private Developer Requirement (PDR) proposal, which results from a March 2017 ordinance issued by Supervisor Hilda Solis. 


Three main objectives of this meeting are as follows:

  • Find the right narrative to support this ordinance:  
    • How can we connect the benefits of this beyond aesthetics. (Some) developers are not seeing this as response to a fundamental need e.g., support transit tax = direct benefit to community because it solves a problem. If we want this to resonate beyond the view that this is a requirement for a superficial and secondary need, we need to improve the narrative.
  • Consider an idea to build on that could potentially be included as another compliance option in the PDR report.
    • My research shows that most private developer art requirements have two compliance options: onsite art and an in-lieu fee. The Arts Commission is proposing an on-or-off site cultural facility as the 3rd option. While we don’t think this will be utilized in the very near future, we want to keep it there nonetheless for developers to consider future projects as it would be a beneficial asset to the communities they serve. The fourth idea should cost less than $50K per project and show ROI (please refer to Option 3 in the attachment under artistic and cultural services for examples). 
  • To receive input of experience for those who have been involved in projects under this requirement.
