In November 2016, LA County voters passed Measure M, a sales tax increase that will raise an unprecedented amount of revenue for transportation network enhancements. The region has a unique opportunity to leverage these investments to holistically address chronic issues facing Southern California in areas of transportation, housing affordability, air quality, and growth.
Thoughtful planning, creative project delivery, and varied project financing can create a stronger alignment between urban design, social infrastructure, growth, and development. If this happens, the promise of Measure M will deliver on significantly more than simply addressing mobility needs and provide a much greater return on investment. How do all of these diverse pieces fall into place in order to reach the lofty goals of a more livable region with affordable housing situated in sustainable and resilient communities?
Come participate in an evening focused on how to enhance Measure M’s impact and get more from the program. We will tackle the questions entrenched in this extraordinary opportunity for responsible, just, and green growth and development, bringing together private industry and the public sector for a frank and open discussion. Our speakers include the following:
- Isabel Dedring | Arup’s Global Transport Leader and former Deputy Mayor of Transport for London
- Amy Bodek | Director of Development Services for the City of Long Beach
Other speakers from UCLA, USC, and local government will also be joining this important discussion.
