Luis Lopez joins the East LA Area Planning Commission

Congrats to Luis Lopez, who serves on the Governing Board of the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council, on joining the East Los Angeles Area Planning Commission (APC). During the last round of charter reform, APCs were established to hear appeals of planning and land use decisions at the local level . Luis' record as a community activist situates him well to be an advocate for community-centered development on the commission. His familiarity with the issues that face East and Northeast Los Angeles - from the need for more open space and pedestrian friendly streets - will serve him well in his new capacity as Area Planning Commissioner.
