Downzoning in Los Angeles

Los Angeles used to be a city where everyone could find housing at a reasonable cost. In 1960, the city’s infrastructure and planning were designed for a population of up to 10 million, and zoning allowed for plenty of housing to be built. Since that time, not-in-my-backyard activists have steadily chipped away at the city’s zoning capacity, and by 1990, there was barely enough room for the city’s growing population. It’s no surprise that we’ve faced steadily increasing rents since that time. High housing costs are a burden on low-income residents, and damage the state’s economy. Join us in support of abundant housing for all, and help make LA a place where everyone can afford to pursue their dreams.
