Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nithya Raman, 4th District, introduced three motions on June 15 to support the building of affordable housing and permanent supportive housing in the district and across the city.
The first two motions instruct the city administrative officer to review city-owned lots at 1905 N. Highland Ave. in Hollywood and 728 S. Cochran Ave. in the Miracle Mile as potential sites for permanent supportive housing development – projects with built-in supportive services and 100% of units dedicated for people experiencing homelessness – or for 100% affordable housing. The lot in Hollywood is currently vacant, and the location in the Miracle Mile is a parking lot.
“Exploring a possible site for supportive or affordable housing is just the first step in a long process toward getting a project built,” Raman said. “I’m very excited to work with city departments, builders, community organizations and residents to make sure these developments are assets to their communities and to the whole district.”
Raman also introduced a motion to instruct the Department of City Planning and other city departments to produce a strategic plan to streamline 100% deed-restricted affordable developments in Los Angeles.
The motion instructs the city’s departments to consider strategies such as shorter appeal and review periods, prioritization of 100% affordable projects in the housing pipeline, and use of an administrative review process.
