Neighborhood Change and #LatinoUrbanism with Ed Mendoza - when the neighborhood of Jefferson Park tried to become more than what it was zoned to be, the city was quick to shut everything down. Where have the pupusa ladies been? What could have been if urban planning was more understanding of Latino traditions?

“LA used to be a place where people like my parents could really find success” - Thank you Michael for sharing your housing story with us. It feels vulnerable when the narrative has been one that if you can’t afford homes, it’s because you are not working hard enough, not smart enough, not saving enough. But you are enough - it’s the housing market that needs to be fixed 🙏🏼👊🏼

It's very concerning that HCD certified San Diego's housing element. What type of message does this send to other cities, who are currently trying to wiggle out of rezoning? 
-
Here are a few less than ideal sites included in SD's housing element. Without substantial rezoning of R1 neighborhoods, We worry this plan is a recipe for more displacement and gentrification.

As you can see, government-subsidized Affordable Housing™️ typically serves seniors, folks with special needs, & large families. But it has so much more potential to serve all types of communities.
•
#SB679, which ultimately did not pass, could have made building these homes here in LA a lot easier, faster, and more cost-efficient. We hope to bring back this proposal stronger for the next legislative year.

Gentle density = affordable, inclusive, & sustainable 💚
-
Current research suggests that gentle density, referring to a dense layout of low-rise buildings, is the best urban form for low-carbon cities. Paris is a real-world example of such urban growth pattern.
