Economic Development Committee

Commercial, Housing, and Transit-Oriented Development opportunities continue to attract billions of dollars in investment to neighborhoods across Los Angeles County. While the occurrence of groundbreakings and cranes in the sky can bring vital economic and social benefits to a community, they can also invoke fear of a loss of community character and lead to displacement of low income residents and businesses.

Our workshop panelists will discuss past and present examples of gentrification in Los Angeles communities and how they were affected. The goal of this conversation is to explore lessons learned, community benefit policies you should know about, and recommendations for how community stakeholders can encourage resiliency and achieve the benefits associated with new development in your backyard.
