Building a Better Los Angeles

Washington, DC (January 14, 2004)- Since 2000, the Transportation & Land Use Collaborative of Southern California (TLUC) has worked to ensure balance between growth, economic development and environmental stewardship in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. Under the leadership of Executive Director Katherine Perez, TLUC has begun to influence policy in the region, and they recently organized a groundbreaking forum on “Latino New Urbanism: Synergy Against Sprawl.” Ms. Perez offers lessons from TLUC and her prior work on how to build broad support for better development patterns and community design in a rapidly growing, changing metropolis.
