Zoning Doesn’t Work For A Growing City

Changing Rules of Game to Close California’s Housing Gap

Discussion Framework

 

The attached LA Times OpEd – contributed by two individuals who clearly understand the history of US land use and its zoning underpinnings – challenges both the mayor’s Hoover Style Development & the protectionists’ Neighborhood Integrity Initiative strategies for dealing with the current LA Housing Crisis. It has implications for the VNC’s LUP and Homeless Committees among others.

The authors of the attached propose the following alternative integrated strategy:

    • Instead of trying to preordain exactly what is or isn’t allowed on every single piece of land, we should abandon micromanagement and — simultaneously — think big by funding improvements to infrastructure.
    • We should begin by eliminating parking requirements and easing up restrictions on commerce in residential areas, which can make neighborhoods more walkable and diverse.
    • We should reverse the bans on density that hindered L.A.’s ability to absorb new housing units in the early 1970s, resulting in today’s affordability crises.
    • We should undo community planning policies that exclude low-income residents from “high opportunity” neighborhoods by limiting where multi-family housing can be built.
    • Opening up the city to more small and medium scale projects can empower families, building groups, co-ops and community corporations to become their own developers and city shapers, rather than trying to block change in order to feel heard.
    • But such tweaks will only take us so far. If we want a better city, we as a community need to build a framework for productive growth, more equitable access to opportunity, and a more sustainable future. A safer street grid, expanded transit, well-maintained and shaded sidewalks, sustainable water and energy systems, more parks and adequate city services are the real pathways to a city that works for everyone.
    • If we focus on public projects that benefit us all, a better city will evolve around them.
