Community development projects are undertaken by local jurisdictions to champion economic growth and livable neighborhoods for people who work, play, and live in their communities. Community development activities build stronger and more resilient communities through an ongoing process of identifying and addressing needs, assets, and priority investments within a local jurisdiction. The entertainment industry is one of the largest industries in Los Angeles County, and is a key component of the regional economic engine. In addition to the jobs that are tied directly to the entertainment industry, industry activity creates additional jobs indirectly, both through the businesses that supply the entertainment industry and through spending in the local economy by workers in the entertainment and supplier industries. Sapphos Environmental, Inc. supports community development end entertainment projects in all phases of development, from due diligence evaluations for property acquisition, advanced planning of conceptual design, entitlement application, preparation of technical studies, environmental analysis, permitting, and construction and noise monitoring. Past community development projects include community service facilities such as community centers, schools, hospitals, fire stations, police stations, and mixed-use affordable housing/commercial projects.
