Action Item for This Week: Today, we have an opportunity to replace a parking lot with 180 apartments homes.
A plan to redevelop a former Vons at Santa Monica Boulevard and Barrington Avenue has taken a key step forward with the publication of the project’s final environmental impact report.
The 3-acre site, currently serving as surface parking, is slated for the construction of a five-story building featuring 180 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Of those apartment homes, 20 will be set aside for very low-income households, and all of them will be above a 24-hour grocery store, restaurant, and office space.

Housing Bill Update
AB 1482, which would restrict rent increases on certain properties to an average of about 10 percent a year and prevent landlords from evicting tenants with no cause, passed out of its first Senate committee hearing. Thank you to all of our members and subscribers that helped advocate for this!
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!
