From the Los Angeles website: Many developers fear the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, a proposed March 2017 ballot measure which calls for a two-year moratorium on substantial developments in Los Angeles that require certain zoning amendments.

Now, a coalition has formed to fight it, with a focus on how the initiative, if approved, could exacerbate L.A.’s housing shortage. It’s called the Coalition to Protect L.A. Neighborhoods & Jobs, and it is an increasingly organized and well-funded group. From January 1 to June 30, 2016, the Coalition received monetary and in-kind donations of more than $800,000.

“It’s probably the largest, broadest coalition our city has seen in response to an election initiative,” said Josh Komensky, a Coalition to Protect L.A. Neighborhoods & Jobs spokesperson. “People who do not agree on other issues are coming together to put a stop to this.” [more]
