Gloria Molina Announces $63 Million Affordable Housing Trust Fund

(Special thanks to the LA County Board of Supervisors Public Affairs Office) Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina announced today the official creation of a $63 million affordable housing trust fund using remaining dollars from now-defunct Community Redevelopment Agencies which previously had been dedicated to creating low- and moderate-income housing.  Molina’s motion – co-authored by Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas – is part of the county’s $25 billion Fiscal Year 2013-2014 budget, which was formally voted upon today.

CCFO Update (City of Los Angeles)

(Special Thanks to Greg Spiegel, Inner City Law Center) As you recall, on January 30th, our collected efforts to fight the proposed Community Care Facilities ordinance succeeded and we prevented it from passing.  Since that time, much around City Hall has changed – there is a new mayor, seven new council members and a new city attorney.  Mayor Garcetti has already restated his opposition to the CCFO (http://argonautnews.com/garcetti-receives-warm-westside-welcome/) as have several new council members. 

Canby Woods Opens in Reseda

Exactly two years after a smashing groundbreaking ceremony, Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine returned to Reseda to unveil Canby Woods, the latest affordable housing wonder developed by Thomas Safran & Associates. Like their previous Del Rey Square, the project includes landscaped gardens and outdoor sitting areas and warmly decorated interiors which, this time, will house 98 low-income seniors.

California State Assembly Reconvenes

After a month-long summer recess, the Assembly returned to Sacramento on Monday, August 5th.

For the first time in more than 50 years, however, the Senate is on a different schedule, returning next Monday, and that’s when the final month’s action really kicks into gear.

With a September 13th deadline to get bills to the governor (or have them turn into two-year bills), the Assembly has 20 policy committee hearings -- and a huge appropriations committee agenda -- next week.
