Development Reform Recommendations from AIA Los Angeles
In early December, LADBS General Manager Bud Ovrom and Planning Director Michael LoGrande invited AIA|LA to produce a comprehensive set of recommendations to help improve the planning process and development services.
In turn, the AIA|LA Political Outreach Committee reached out to many in the profession and collated numerous ideas that will help make the overall process more efficient and predictable in effort to save time and money for both the City and its citizens. We believe these planning and development reforms will help the City of Los Angeles remain economically competitive on the global stage by enabling more time to be focused on attaining design excellence.

Professional Outreach Sessions - Development Services Reform
As many of you already know, the City of Los Angeles has hired a consultant to identify the best way to implement reforms. They've coordinated several outreach sessions throughout February to solicit additional feedback.
We encourage you to get involved and participate in the discussion. Please make plans to attend one of the following sessions:
Three Sessions for Professional Outreach to Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety:

This is your chance to help the City progress towards a more economically and environmentally sustainable future!
Very truly yours,
Director, Government & Public Affairs
