How do we incentivize more affordable housing near transit? 

Do you have ideas to share about density bonuses that will allow for more mixed-income projects, and yet, prevent displacement?

If so, please make plans to attend our upcoming Political Outreach Committee, which will be on Tuesday, April 11 (6pm) at Hanson LA Architecture in Downtown LA.

The meeting will serve as a forum to review and finalize your comments on the draft proposal of the City of Los Angeles Transit Oriented Communities Affordable Housing Incentive Program Guidelines. (see attached)

Transit Oriented Communities Affordable Housing Incentive Program Guidelines

The Department of City Planning is pleased to have released the attached Transit Oriented Communities Affordable Housing Incentive Program Guidelines. The TOC Program is a new transit-based affordable housing incentive program that applies to all qualified Housing Developments located within a one-half mile radius of a Major Transit Stop. The program was created by the voter approved Measure JJJ in November and is codified in LAMC 12.22 A.31. These TOC Guidelines provide the eligibility standards, incentives, and other necessary components as outlined in the Measure.  

A public hearing for the Guidelines will take place at the City Planning Commission meeting on Thursday May 11th after 8:30 am in City Hall. The documents will also be available on the Department website (planning.lacity.org) under What's New.
