VICA President Stuart Waldman said:
“LA County’s housing shortage is driving up the cost of homes and apartments, pushing working- and middle-class families out of our communities and making it difficult for businesses to attract and retain talent.”
“We cannot continue to ignore the need to build more housing. The only way out of this crisis is to build more homes and apartments.”
“VICA applauds the board for choosing to build more housing and approving this forward-thinking project that will provide over 19,000 new homes and generate 23,000 jobs for LA County.”
The mission of the Valley Industry & Commerce Association (VICA) is to enhance the economic vitality of the greater San Fernando Valley region by advocating for a better business climate and quality of life. Visit www.vica.com for more information.
