Public Works and Telecommunications Committee

In 2020 the BABCNC re-established the Public Works and Telecommunications committee.  The purpose is to provide a local neighborhood forum where information, communication and stakeholder feedback regarding planned or existing public works/telecommunication projects, can be discussed and actions determined.  The plan for the committee is to continue building upon the goals and to identify key liaisons for public works/telecommunication projects in our district

The mission of the BABCNC Public Works and Telecommunications (PW/T) committee is to ensure effective communication and collaboration among the BABCNC, its stakeholders, State and local government and agencies, investor owned utilities, including providers of telecommunication services to stakeholders, with respect to key projects and/or issues impacting BABCNC stakeholder community. 

Such projects shall include public works projects undertaken by various City of Los Angeles departments, any regulated investor-owned utility, or any commercial provider of telecommunication services, generating impact upon BABCNC stakeholder community.
