ADVOCACY IN ACTION
BIA-LAV REPRESENTED AT FIRST MEETING OF STREETSLA ADVISORY COUNCIL
Senior Director of Government Affairs, Christine Rangel, participated as a member of the Advisory Council during the first meeting of the “StreetsLA” initiative. StreetsLA is part of the Department of Public Works family responsible for preserving, protecting, maintaining, and renewing the City of Los Angeles' street network and urban forest. This includes our streets' sidewalks, bikeways, trees, and medians. 

The purpose of the Advisory Council is to bring stakeholders together to “discuss, analyze, review, deliberate, and provide recommendation on current and proposed StreetsLA programs and initiatives targeted towards the renewal of our streets, the repair of sidewalks, and the revitalization of our urban forest.” Christine is ensuring that the development community’s voice is being heard as the City works to create safer, more sustainable streets.
