The Los Angeles County "OurCounty” Sustainability Plan" was adopted, on Tuesday. The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the motion and will start the implementation process beginning as early as this month and throughout the next several years.

BIA-LAV testified at the hearing with comments that cautioned against any action that would increase the cost of housing or anything that would complicate the already cumbersome entitlement process. However, we are encouraged that the Board motion included a more detailed implementation approach that called for collaboration with stakeholders, identified funding opportunities for the goals associated to the plan, and required an economic cost benefit analysis. 

Over the last year, BIA-LAV has been engaged on this issue, attending “OurCounty” events and hosting two meetings with the Chief Sustainability Officer. BIA-LAV will continue to monitor implementation of the Plan and its effects on our membership.
