On Wednesday BIA-LAV held its first Long Beach and South Bay (LBSB) Development Group meeting with Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia. The Mayor shared his policy goals moving into next year and his housing priorities. Our members had the opportunity to discuss City and regional development issues, with focus on the city’s inclusionary hosing policy development. We are planning our next meeting for November upon review of the peer study of the City’s published inclusionary housing feasibility study.
