2024 Annual Westside Mayors Forum

Thursday, February 15, 2024

Registration for this event has closed. Registration will be available onsite for $10 more. 


WUF is proud to present our Annual Westside Mayors Forum, bringing together mayors of the Westside cities for a discussion of their land use priorities for 2024 and the ways cities are responding to pressing and long-term issues. 


In 2024, our mayors will face a myriad of civic issues, including the ever-present need to advance social and racial equity.  We’ll be sure to discuss a variety of topics and touch on each city’s efforts to:

  • Manage the growing trend of pre-emption of local authority;
  • Implement federal funds awarded through programs such as the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the Inflation Reduction Act;
  • Focus on local sustainability, including reducing emissions, and addressing water insecurity and stormwater management;
  • Prepare for major upcoming international events including the FIFA World Cup in 2026 and Olympics in 2028;
  • Tackle homelessness and collaborate with federal and local partners on initiatives aimed at reducing homelessness and increasing access to safe and affordable housing;
  • Address a large inventory of vacant office and commercial spaces, balancing the long-term need for commercial office space with the immediate need for workforce and affordable housing;
  • Address historic inequity and doing right by communities displaced by freeways and urban renewal; and
  • Improve transit service and boost ridership.


Join us for breakfast and to hear directly from our mayors on February 15th!
