LOS ANGELES BOARD OF AIRPORT COMMISSIONERS APPROVES LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR SAFE PARKING PROGRAM NEAR LAX
(Los Angeles) The Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners unanimously approved a plan today to allow the temporary use of a Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) site for a Safe Parking pilot program, which will provide a secure area for people living in their vehicles to park overnight. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the first airport in the country to receive approval, on a pilot basis, from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to utilize airport land for assisting the homeless. The FAA also approved that the use of this site may be considered a community benefit, which means the airport does not need to receive fair market value for the use of the land. In this case, the land will be provided at no cost to the program administrator.
