Each year, AIA|LA presents an advocacy slate of issue briefs to Council Members, Deputy Mayors, General Managers and key civic leaders as part of our annual AIA|LA Legislative Day at City Hall.

The future is now. The City of Los Angeles stands at a crossroads in its evolution as one of the unique and great cities on earth. Increased investment in our regional transit system plus the comprehensive revision to the LA Zoning Code are underway, promising to remake the city at a scale and pace not seen in over 60 years. Renewed efforts are underway to streamline city review processes and to re-orient personal to be more customer-focused. Additionally, our political leadership has been transformed with a new Mayor, a new City Attorney, a new Controller and seven new Council Members. Designing Our Future begins with public vision and Los Angeles is poised to create that vision, one of economic prosperity, social equity and civic pride for all Angelenos.

With the goal of preserving and enhancing the quality of the built and natural environments of Los Angeles for future generations, AIA|LA offers its 2013 Advocacy Platform to the City’s policy makers with a promise of unwavering support as they carry forward this important work. The AIA|LA’s Ten Point Plan identifies what we believe is everyone’s priority list to create a higher performing and more beautiful city.

This Ten Point Plan promises of re-make our city in ways felt by all Angelenos. The AIA|LA stands ready to support civic leaders who see the long-term public benefit of Designing Our Future now.
