Mayor Eric Garcetti” hosted by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday, October 17th at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City. “We are delighted to once again meet with Mayor Garcetti and to discuss issues facing Hollywood and Los Angeles,” said Chamber President & CEO Leron Gubler. “With Mayor Garcetti having represented Hollywood for 12 years on the City Council, we have always had a special relationship with him. He knows our issues very well.”
Addressing the Chamber for the third year in a row, Mayor Garcetti discussed some of the key changes taking place in Los Angeles. Garcetti discussed transportation, homelessness, entertainment industry, development, and community plans. He said it was critical that we continue adding in the right place the density that we need. He discussed the need to upzone, and mentioned the transit-oriented communities laws which he put forward last year that would allow transit stops additional density. He talked about bridge home as the way to house people now, and was pleased to see the building of bridge home in Hollywood.
