League of California Cities

Local Works

Every day local leaders work to make their cities better places in which to live, work, and play. They approve projects to increase affordable housing, address homelessness, improve streets and roads, spur economic growth, and deliver essential services to protect citizens. 
 
The League is launching the #LocalWorks initiative to shine the spotlight on examples of local actions that are making a difference to their communities. See below how local works and if you have a #LocalWorks story to share, please contact your Regional Public Affairs Manager or the League's Communications Department.
