Through these programs California will likely see construction funding for new streets and highways effectively reduced, increased funding for transit (rail and buses) and programs to encourage densification of transit corridors. Will the future bring dystopia or utopia? Will it speed new development or slow it down? Will it bring increased litigation? Come to this session to find out. CONCURRENT SESSIONS S.

Ballard Co-Founder and President Buchanan Street Partners Robert J. Odson Shumener, Odson & Oh LLP Eric V. Rowen Greenberg Traurig, LLP MODERATOR Peter J. Breckheimer II Glaser Weil LLP DEVELOPMENT TRACK SESSION 2B Ballot Box Planning in California: Dark-Side Developer Tactic or Constitutionally-Protected Alternative to a CEQA Process Gone Awry? In California, legislating by initiative is a century-old right. Yet the use of the initiative process for land use decision-making has attracted particularly intense scrutiny. Some believe any attempt around the typical process that allows opponents to extract benefits and have their day in court is a travesty. Development proponents argue that the use of the Constitutionally-protected process gives voters the ultimate decision-making power, and is a sane and publicly- accountable alternative to a broken CEQA process. No Growth initiatives are also proliferating. Learn about the current landscape, including the alphabet soup of Measures A, HH, Y, S, LV and more in this informative panel. 1:50 PM FINANCE TRACK SESSION 2A How Foreign Investment Is Shaping (and Will Shape) Southern California Real Estate In 2016, Los Angeles became the third largest market for U.S. in-bound real estate investments, following New York City and the Bay Area.

First, review the regulatory changes, and then dive deep into how foreign investors are thinking about Southern California real estate investment and what that means for investors and developers.
