About CRA/LA

What We Do
We make strategic investments to create economic opportunity and improve the quality of life for the people who live and work in our neighborhoods.

A Board of seven Commissioners appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council oversees the CRA/LA. An Administrator appointed by the Board directs the staff.  Under an “Oversight Ordinance,” adopted in 1991, every action of the CRA/LA is subject to City Council approval.

Management Team
The management team includes the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), a Chief Operating Officer (COO) and the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). It also includes seven regional administrators and selected department directors.
