Building A Sustainable Future With Leadership, Advocacy And Resolve
LA City: Wood Construction
Last week, BIA-LAV testified against the prohibition of wood construction at the City's Public Safety Committee meeting. The final outcome eventuated in the adoption of BIA requested amendments and kept the Motion from moving forward as an Ordinance. Instead, staff will prepare a report, before action is taken. This fight is not over, but this is good news! Contact BIA-LAV here for more information.
LA County: Art Fee
For the last three years BIA has been keeping the Art Fee from moving forward in the County of Los Angeles. Yesterday, thanks to BIA's advocacy, the the Board of Supervisors chose to continue the item until September. This issue still threatens to increase the cost to build housing, but this was a hard fought delay. Contact BIA-LAV here for more information.
