Hi Friend,

LA’s Westside is a great place to live. It offers a lot of opportunities and access to good jobs and transit.

But who actually benefits? Wealthy, high-opportunity neighborhoods in the Westside have historically used exclusionary zoning to lock entire communities out and perpetuate racial and economic segregation. If we want to build a less segregated, more affordable, and more connected Los Angeles, we have to urge our leaders to support denser housing development. 

The City of Los Angeles is currently updating its Westside Community Plans, which set the guidelines for future housing and land use policy. Join us in telling City Hall that we want a total strategic rewrite of land use and zoning regulations on the Westside, which will support inclusion of all Angelenos and move us towards a sustainable, transit-oriented mode of living.
