The Design Advocate is an outreach tool to keep the 3200+ architect & design members of AIA Los Angeles updated about pending matters at City Hall, which may impact the built environment & their profession.
On Thursday, July 28 (10am), AIA|LA members will be meeting with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning to provide input on revisions to the old Retaining Wall Ordinance. This is your chance as an architect passionate about improving the built environment to help shape public policy that not only effects the livelihood of your profession, but also impacts the specific design of your projects.
Your participation is highly encouraged! Please let me know if you will be able to make plans to attend.
Additionally, to help with the DCP's outreach process, they are trying to create a database of photos that demonstrate a variety of retaining walls in effort to assist in discussions and presentations. If you have any photos of walls (good or bad) that you would like to share please feel free to forward them to City Planner David Olivo directly. If you happen to know any details about the wall (e.g., height) please include in the email.
