    Sadly, I suspect that Father Greg might be right about the NIMBY initiative. Passing it will definitely make it more difficult to build low-incoming housing. But if it does not pass, it is highly unlikely that the current legal situation is going to create a bunch of low-income housing either.

    If low-income residents are one’s concern, the future will be worse with-or-without the measure, why not chose the route that reduces the rate of change?

  • Joe Linton

    That makes no sense. Passing this NIMBY initiative will make L.A. worse for low-income housing.

  • Mike

    It certainly makes things worse for the *potential* for low income housing. But nobody’s going to build any low-income housing in LA, with or without this law.
