Stay Engaged with Council District 8


Economic Development

Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson’s economic development priorities are to restore the 8th District as a hub of profitable economic opportunity that benefits local residents, business owners and entrepreneurs. We want residents employed in well-paying jobs that are easily accessible from South Los Angeles, if not located in the area; project labor agreements with local hiring goals; robust opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs; and access to education and workforce training for young people and adults who are transitioning into or reentering the workforce.

In addition to a focus on jobs and small business opportunities, the Councilmember is focusing on public investments on our corridors that can create safe and vibrant spaces where residents and business can interact. Check out a few opportunities to be involved our corridor investment strategy:
