Breakfast with Transportation Policymakers in Los Angeles County

On Monday, January 30, 2017, Investing in Place brought together policymakers and elected leaders from across Los Angeles County for breakfast to continue a conversation around a shared vision for implementation of Measure M. The measure, approved with the support of 71% of voters, will provide a significant amount of revenue over the coming decades for transportation priorities throughout the county. While the major projects were spelled out in the ballot measure ordinance, many decisions about other funding programs have yet to be made.

We had two goals for the breakfast:

  1. To continue bridging dialogue between policymakers, elected officials, and community leaders we hear from at our convenings, work groups, and transportation workshops.
  2. To continue growing the discussion on implementing  our vision for equitable, safe, and sustainable transportation, particularly how we will do that work in partnership will leaders across the region in  2017.
