AHLA Weekly Update: Join Us on Thursday in DTLA and Tell SCAG We Need More Homes! by AbundantHousingLA | Jul 29, 2019 | Newsletter | 0 comments The latest news and events for the Pro Housing Movement. Membership | Donate | Volunteer | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter Action Item for This Week: The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) recently approved a growth target (RHNA target) of only 430,000 homes— a vast underestimate of the number needed to ease the existing housing shortage and make space for the next generation of Californians. We need 2.7 million more homes across the region— not only 430,000 to accomodate population growth; but also 595,000 homes to relieve overcrowding and 1,676,000 homes to reduce the number of rent-burdened households down to zero. Let’s tell the LA City Council, Mayor Garcetti, and the State to ignore the SCAG number and adopt a much higher RHNA target. We Need 2.7 Million More Homes in So Cal! After you submit your comments, RSVP for the SCAG meeting on Thursday where we will provide public testimony on the need for a much higher RHNA target. Events Calendar Tell SCAG we need more homes near jobs! Thurs, 8/1, 11 AM–1 PM, DTLA. AHLA Housing 101. Sat, 8/24, 12PM–2 PM, Culver City. Thank You for Your Advocacy! Thank you to the 79 of you who wrote in to support the development of 53 new homes at 127 North Madison Avenue in Pasadena. Unfortunately, the City Council rescheduled its hearing for mid-August after hours of discussion, resulting in a stalemate, on a similar project. Thank you to AHLA Dingbat Mark Edwards for testifying for the Mariposa Lily project,which will create 41 affordable homes in the Koreatown / Pico-Union neighborhood. The project was approved!
