An Ever-Developing Story: Land Use and the Local Media

Though Los Angeles is famous for sending media messages across the globe, local news is as important as ever for those who live and work in L.A. — especially when it comes to land use. The media that follows this storied business has a large hand in the rise and fall of the bricks and mortar as well as in the careers of the politicians impacted by it. So whether it’s developers reading for the next deal, politicians deciphering their position or community activists gearing up for a fight, LA’s constellation of print – and now online – media seeks to bring to light the changes in our urban fabric. This month, please join the Westside Urban Forum to meet the faces behind the bylines and to discuss the stories, the trends, the personalities they cover, and most of all to hear the latest buzz on the next big deal and emerging trends. Panelists Kerry Cavanaugh, Staff Writer, Los Angeles Daily News, Steve Hymon, Staff Writer, Los Angeles Times, Josh Williams, Editor, Curbed LA.  Registration & Pricing
