MONTEBELLO—Montebello City Councilman Jack Hadjinian was appointed to the California League of Cities Housing, Community and Economic Development Policy Committee.
The Housing, Community and Economic Development (HCED) Policy Committee reviews issues related to general plans and zoning, housing, rent control, Subdivision Map Act, residential care facilities, other land use regulation, development fees including school fee adequacy, annexation and incorporation policy, development agreements, building standards including seismic safety standards, economic development policy including redevelopment and enterprise zones, military base closure and reuse, mobile home regulation, and sign regulation. The principle behind the policies reviewed by this Committee is to foster local control of community planning decisions as they relate to land use and economic development.
“When I got the call that my appointment was confirmed, I was a little taken back to serve on a policy committee for the largest City Association in the State of California,” said Hadjinian, whose real estate background made him the perfect candidate for the position.
Hadjinian will attend his first policy committee meeting on January 17th in Sacramento.
Hadjinian currently serves on the Board of Directors for the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments, Gateway Cities Council of Governments, and the Alameda Construction Authority.
