TOC is Working, and L.A. Can Improve It

Recently, I wrote about how Los Angeles’ Transit-Oriented Communities (TOC) Program is successfully encouraging dense new housing near transit. Since the program launched in September 2017, over 20,000 new homes have been proposed or permitted, including nearly 4,000 that will be affordable to low-income renters.  At a time when housing affordability, traffic, and homelessness seem […]

Happy Hour > Advocacy Hour: Burbank

Oct 28 Mon 5:00 pm - Oct 28 Mon 7:30 pm

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant145 South San Fernando BoulevardBurbank, CA91502 Map

The next AHLA Happy Hour > Advocacy Hour is happening in Burbank!

Join us from 5-6PM at Gordon Biersch Brewery for happy hour drinks and casual discussion. Then, around 6 PM, we will walk over together to the Burbank Planning Board meeting to say YES in my backyard!

The Burbank Planning Board will be considering a 573-unit building (!!) with 69 affordable homes. Let's make sure that this much-needed amount of housing goes forward. We can't let this project get cut or slowed down. 573 units, with 69 affordable, will help put a major dent in the housing crisis in Burbank.

Even if you don't live in Burbank, please feel free to come and make your voice heard. This is a regional housing crisis and every city needs to do its part.

Protest NIMBYism!

Nov 21 Thu 1:00 pm - Nov 21 Thu 2:30 pm

Department 82 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Map

Note - Fix the City has postponed their hearing to November.

Come help us protest Fix the City - an ultra NIMBY organization that sues against housing and density.

Fix the City is suing the City of LA over the Expo TNP (which increases housing zoned capacity along the Expo) and over TOC, which is a policy promoting more housing density and subsidized affordable housing.

We need to show up and tell these NIMBYs that enough is enough. We have a housing crisis, an affordability crisis, a homelessness crisis, and a climate crisis! Exclusionary tactics like these are no longer acceptable. At a time when we need a huge increase in housing, Fix the City is using baseless lawsuits to make even *less* housing possible.

---This advocacy opportunity is easy for those who live/work near DTLA - just stop by around lunch! It's right at the Civic Center metro stop----
