Repairing a Broken Program
L.A. Controller Ron Galperin released a new report analyzing the City’s sidewalk repair program and urging sweeping changes to get more walkways fixed. Controller Galperin found that less than 1% of the City’s sidewalks have been certified as repaired. Why so few? When it fixes a sidewalk, the City replaces the entire parcel — far more than it is legally required to do — making repairs more costly and time consuming than they should be. In addition, the current priority is to fix sidewalks next to City-owned facilities, leaving out L.A.’s residential neighborhoods and commercial centers. Controller Galperin also determined that the City is responding slowly to simple repair requests. READ MORE
Mello Ordinance PLUM Hearing - Nov. 30
CPC-2019-7393-CA for the Mello Ordinance is scheduled for the Planning and Land Use management (PLUM) Committee on November 30, 2021. The PLUM agenda will be posted on the City Clerk’s website, located here:

The proposed ordinance is a code amendment to implement California Government Code Sections 65590 - 65590.1, also known as the Mello Act. The Mello Act seeks to preserve and expand the number of affordable dwelling units located within the Coastal Zone areas of the State of California. Local compliance with the Mello Act is accomplished through regulating demolitions, conversions, changes of use, subdivisions, and new construction activities that involve existing or proposed dwelling units in areas of City that overlap with the Coastal Zone, which include Del Rey, Pacific Palisades, Playa del Rey, San Pedro, and Venice. The City’s proposed Mello Ordinance specifies the review and approval process for demolitions, remodels, and new construction projects to ensure that such projects comply with State law.
The most recent draft ordinance is available online. This draft was recommended for approval by the City Planning Commission in May 2021. Additional materials can be found on the Planning Department website, located in Proposed Land Use Regulations under Mello Act Ordinance and can be accessed here:
