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.
