Teleconference: City Planner Dick Platkin on Why L.A. Times Refuses to Report that SB 9 Allows 8 Units Not “Duplexes.”


This is an RSVP-only teleconference. Please register HERE at this link by noon Friday . Any problems registering email [email protected].


Former L.A. city planner Dick Platkin is a major critic of “upzoning” and “trickle-down” laws that fail to build affordable housing but DO destroy communities. Mr. Platkin will lay out why newsrooms fail to inform the public, don’t appear to know what’s going on, and side with huge financial interests over residents and readers.


Join us Sat., March 20 at 10 am!

  • Why is news coverage on housing law so unusually one-sided and inaccurate
  • Are the zoning and land-use laws too complex for overworked journalists?
  • What steps can you take to see meaningful coverage in your paper?
  • Why Dick Platkin decided to launch his own column!
