The Los Angeles we know is changing. Tech businesses are booming. Our population is growing. There’s pressure for more affordable and denser housing, and for alternative transportation to escape all the traffic. How will L.A. survive and thrive without sustainable development and insightful city planning? Join us to learn about the visionary projects and Big Ideas that shape our city and transform the way we live and work.

SEGD Los Angeles Members,

It's that time of year once again! Please join us on Wednesday, Dec. 7th from 7pm to 9pm at Far Bar in Little Tokyo (DTLA) as we gather to celebrate the season. Let's enjoy an evening of good drinks and fun while connecting and networking with our fellow members.
