Action Item for This Week: This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks to LA City Councilmembers, the Mayor, and the other SCAG Regional Councilmembers who voted to support a better RHNA methodology for our region.
Our leaders delivered a strong message that the region’s approach to housing needs to be more focused on high-density housing construction near job centers and transit.
Los Angeles’s affordable housing future won’t be found in a skyline crowded with tall towers, but in duplexes, bungalow courts, and accessory dwelling units, according to a new report.
These types of units cost significantly less to build so owners wouldn’t have to charge as much to rent them out.
A duplex, triplex, or fourplex converted from a single-family home could draw a return even with a rent as low as $1,500 month; a bungalow court on parcel zoned for single-family homes could support rents from $1,000. And they could be built more quickly.

With Guest Speaker Meghan Sahli-Wells, RHNA Champion!
AHLA has a lot to celebrate this year! Help us end our first year as a funded organization by celebrating our accomplishments and giving thanks to our hard-working volunteers. Thanks to AHLA members and volunteers, we were able to support individual housing projects, advocate for better community plans, support pro-housing and tenant protection on the state level, and successfully advocate for over 1.3 million homes in the SCAG region, concentrated in coastal, job-rich cities near transit! Our Guest Speaker, Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells told SCAG that they were the "titanic," heading to disaster on housing. Thanks to her, our amazing volunteers, and other pro-housing advocates and elected officials, SCAG voted for a better plan.
Let's get together over beer and take the moment to recognize our successes, and the bigger wins down the road as we enter 2020. Drinks and food will be provided!
