Build Better LA: How will LA grow up?

Hosted by

As rent prices continues to rise in LA, Measure JJJ, or the "Build Better LA" initiative, seeks to carve out some space for lower-income Angelenos. It would require so-called mega-developers to set aside as much as one-fifth of their new units for affordable housing. It would also require them to hire local, union labor to build these projects. Developers oppose the measure, arguing it does not solve the city's larger problem: a lack of housing, period.
