The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously Wednesday to support a Linkage Fee affordable housing ordinance, which will generate about $104 million annually through commercial and housing development fees to provide a consistent funding source to address the City’s affordable housing crisis.
The City’s Economic Development Committee approved The Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Partners & Claridge Properties (Angel’s Landing Partners, LLC) as developer team for Angel’s Landing development adjacent to Angel’s Flight in Downtown’s Bunker Hill - site was state-owned and slated for development – City given permission to oversee proposals.

For Council District 14 and our work on behalf of the entire City, October (with a touch of November!) was about profound change. In my office’s day-to-day work on your behalf, our goal is to move the community service needle forward in whatever we can and this month’s work is a great reflection of that.
We took a huge step forward in securing about $100 million annually to protect and build affordable housing throughout the City, we ramped up efforts on our door-to-door campaign to inform renters in rent-controlled units of their significant protections against displacement, and we assisted homeless college students find a home in the near future.
We celebrated a victory against unfair jay-walking tickets at crosswalks, new roadway and façade lighting improvements on two of the District’s oldest streets: Soto and Broadway, with more coming for Soto. And we took a huge step forward in protecting our communities against odor pollution from animal rendering plants, as well as protecting our largely immigrant street vending community from undue harm from the federal government.
I thank you as always for the opportunity to allow my staff and me to do our best to move the community service needle forward on your behalf, in whatever way we can – each and every day.
