About this event

Registration Opens: Sunday, October 16 @ 12:00 PM

Program Begins: Sunday, October 16 @ 1:30 PM

Lodging Check-in: Sunday, October 16 @ 5:00PM

High land costs, a shortage of homes, and income inequality leads to a cost-burdened population: Nationally, 49% of households that earn under $50,000 per year pay more than 30% of their income on housing, but in California it’s over 65%, and in the Los Angeles metro area it’s nearly 70%. Californians cope with this housing burden by crowding into cramped housing units, exiling to exurban or out-of-state markets with lower costs but increased climate impacts, and surfing between less secure housing opportunities with friends or relatives. Those with the least support end up without housing altogether, either in vehicles, in shelters, or on the street.

California's Housing Crisis is a Transportation Issue:

California’s housing crisis is particularly acute in coastal job centers and near public transportation infrastructure. Recently UCLA ITS assembled an expert panel of transportation leaders from throughout California to discuss the state’s transportation problems and policy options. Even with shifting investments to build a robust and reliable multimodal network, using pricing to manage automobiles, and making the system a safer place for all users, panelists saw increasing inequality, economic strain, and automobile dependence if these were pursued without making progress on the state’s housing crisis.

The 2022 UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium on Transportation – Land Use – Environment intends to build an understanding of and capacity to implement these solutions across attendee backgrounds, the Symposium will include a Housing 101 session and a demystification of the alphabet soup of California housing: RHNA, HEs, AFFH, CEQA, ADUs and highlight actions that transportation professionals can take to support housing solutions

Registration Includes:

Unlike most conferences, the UCLA Arrowhead Symposium is an all-inclusive experience. 

  • Full 2.5 Day Program
  • 2 Nights Lodging
  • All Meals (Sunday lunch through Tuesday lunch)
  • Receptions
  • Access to Center Facilities

Each fall the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium convenes a diverse group of influential policymakers, private sector stakeholders, public sector analysts, consultants, advocates, and researchers to delve into the pressing public policy challenges related to the transportation - land use - environment connection. The symposium’s location in the San Bernardino Mountains affords attendees a reflective setting to contemplate, discuss, debate, and return to their organizations with informed thinking on the latest research and most innovative new practices from around California and the globe.

FAQs & Policies:

What is the refund policy?

Once you register, we pay for you to attend even if you cancel. Thus, in most cases, we cannot offer a refund. Exceptions will be made for individuals who will be under quarantine or isolation orders by their health care provider during the symposium. The individual must notify symposium organizers at within 24 hours of being placed on the quarantine or isolation order and include a copy of the order from their health care provider. Any refunds will be minus the Eventbrite fees.

Your registration is transferable, and you can change the name on your registration until October 12, 2022 by logging into Eventbrite and clicking your order on the Tickets page. Note that this doesn't change payment responsibility from the original registrant. If you change the name of your registration, please notify us at

What lodging accommodations will be provided?

Included in the registration is the lodging for two nights and meals (Sunday Lunch- Tuesday Lunch). Please note that RSVP is required for lunch on Sunday. Lodging at the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center is semi-private cabins (condolets). Your condolet will be shared with another symposium attendee. You may request a suitemate by indicating so during the registration process. Some condolets have an open-door bedroom plan and others have a closed-door bedroom plan. Most condolets are two-story units with each level having a queen bed and full bathroom. A downstairs living room parlor with a sleeper sofa, work desk, and fireplace separates the two guest rooms. Due to room availability, we cannot accommodate requests for specific bedroom plans.

May I request a suitemate?

Yes, you can request a suitemate (that we hope is mutually agreed on) during the registration process. Our policy is to pair suitemates of the same gender unless otherwise requested. We will do our best to pair attendees from the same organization but this is not guaranteed.

Is smoking allowed in the buildings?

The UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center is a smoke-free property. Due to this, we will be required to bill a smoking fee during the symposium or post check-out to guests who will be participating in smoking activities in the rooms during the symposium or post check-out.

Can I request dietary meal preferences?

Please let us know during the registration process if you have a mobility issue and need to be housed in a room close to the main conference. The conference center will do its best to accommodate requests based on availability and medical needs; however, these accommodations are not guaranteed.
