The Westside Mayors Panel: Culver City, Malibu, Santa Monica, West Hollywood

Friday, April 21, 2017

It is time for WUF’s signature event, the annual Westside Mayors’ Panel! WUF is pleased to welcome the Westside mayors for a candid discussion of each mayor’s priorities, topics of importance to their cities, and common issues that they face. Amid excitement over the region’s economic vibrancy and new developments and challenges like housing, the Westside stands at a crucial juncture. 

Potential topics include the mayors’ thoughts on the economic outlook for each of their cities, the impacts of the Trump administration on local cities, collaboration with the county to use Proposition H funds to address homelessness, region-wide housing challenges, and ways cities are planning for current and future transportation changes (Expo and Purple Lines, driverless cars, automated parking), among many other topics of interest across the Westside.

Please note that this panel will begin 15 minutes earlier than usual to accommodate a longer Q and A period at the end.
