Happy Hour > Advocacy Hour: Burbank

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!

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----

Support the 1.3 million housing target on Sept 5th!

Sep 05 Thu 12:15 pm - Sep 05 Thu 1:15 pm

SCAG Main Office - 900 Wilshire Blvd ste 1700, Los Angeles, CA Map

Join Abundant Housing LA and other housing advocates as we show up to speak at the next Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) Regional Council Meeting.

We need to tell SCAG that we support the 1.3 million + regional housing target, and that we also need to allocate that number in a way that provides more housing in job-rich, high-cost areas near transit.

Suggested talking points:

1. Your personal experience and perspective on the housing crisis
2. We need the 1.3 million regional housing target to deal with the severe housing deficit and make housing more available and affordable to people who need it
3. We need to reduce GHG emissions and promote more environmentally-friendly housing and transportation policies.
3. We should not have "local inputs" in the allocation method because it continues past practices which have not provided enough housing
4. The allocation methodology should include jobs/housing balance, housing costs, share of multifamily housing, and access to jobs and transit as objective factors.
5. We should have a high Social Equity Adjustment to make sure we plan for needed affordable housing

RHNA – The Best and Worst

We have a housing crisis and no single city, acting on its own, can fix it. Why don’t we just give each city a housing production target to reach at different income levels and then let them figure it out? Well, that exact process already exists, and it’s called RHNA....
