Opportunity for Comment: The City of Los Angeles 
Permanent Supportive Housing Ordinance
 
The City of Los Angeles' Planning Department has released a draft ordinance to improve the permitting process for permanent supportive housing (PSH) developments and is seeking comment and feedback from the public. The Planning Department will be holding two public hearings on the following dates and your support for this ordinance will be vital:
 
Monday, September 25, 2017
5:00 pm -7:00 pm
Marvin Braude Constituent Center
Public Meeting Room 1A
6262 Van Nuys Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91401
Thursday, September 28, 2017
5:00 pm -7:00 pm
Los Angeles City Hall
Room 1060
200 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
 
In addition to the hearings, the Planning Department will be receiving written public comment until October 30, 2017. You can access the draft ordinance here. A summary of the ordinance and frequently asked questions can be assessed by clicking here. Written comments can be submitted by e-mailing Cally Hardy at cally.hardy@lacity.org.
 
Voters in the City of Los Angeles approved Measure HHH in November 2016, which will raise $1.2 billion to construct 10,000 PSH units over the next decade. As the City begins to deploy the resources to construct these units, a PSH ordinance to improve the permitting and zoning processes will be instrumental in ensuring the City meets its goals. Your comments and support as service providers, housing developers, and community members are critically important in supporting the PSH ordinance.

Northridge, CA – Thursday, The Resistance Northridge, will hold a protest rally in coordination with several other local resistance groups at the Mike Pence GOP Fundraiser this week.  

Mike Pence will be at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Thursday, September 14th to host a fundraiser dinner for the GOP California Representatives that are vulnerable in the 2018 mid-terms. While Pence is there pandering to the 1%, We, the People will be outside engaging in Democracy. We, the People, who represent America, will be calling Pence and the GOP to task to represent all Americans no matter race, color, creed, or sexual orientation.  The message of the rally focuses on the point that our Democracy should not be for sale. 

Counter fundraising is also planned to benefit organizations, such as Swing Left, Planned Parenthood, CHIRLA, Black Lives Matter, LGBT Center, and many others.  Feel free to donate in the name of Mike Pence. 

Voter Registration will also be taking place.  Anyone who is looking to take a more active role in civic engagement, let us know and we will connect you with a group in your neighborhood. 

Parking: Parking restrictions before 6 (1--2-hour parking during the workday) no restrictions after 6, during weekdays.  We looked at some residential streets N, of Wilshire, such as Walden (2 hour before 6), Linden (1 hour before 6) Roxbury (no parking 8-5).  Therefore, no limitations after 6 on many of the streets. There is also a 2 story lot that runs a few blocks between Santa Monica and Little Santa Monica, has paid parking before 6 and free parking after 6.  You may also want to consider carpooling or using a service like Lyft or Uber. 

Media is encouraged

 

Resist,
