Convención Anual, que sesionará del 25 de junio al 3 de julio en Salt Lake City, Utah, se le pedirá en dos resoluciones propuestas que se comprometa con el permanente apoyo y desarrollo de los programas del Cuerpo de Servicio de Jóvenes Adultos (YASC) de la Iglesia Episcopal y con el de Voluntarios Episcopales en Misión (EVIM).A través de estos programas, cientos de misioneros episcopales han elegido abrazar la transformadora experiencia de marchar junto a una comunidad, con frecuencia muy distante —tanto geográfica como culturalmente— de la suya.La Comisión Permanente sobre Misión Mundial y el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal —que presentaron las dos resoluciones— esperan que en el trienio 2016-2018 se crearán los programas y se incrementarán las oportunidades.“La misión global es esencialmente encarnacional”, dijo Sandra McPhee, abogada de Evanston, Illinois, que ha prestado servicios como presidente de la Comisión Permanente sobre Misión Mundial, uno de los organismos interinos de la Iglesia que funciona a lo largo del trienio e informa a la Convención General con recomendaciones sobre las prioridades y políticas de la Iglesia.“Los misioneros jóvenes adultos en el programa del YASC y los voluntarios más expertos en compromisos a largo plazo a través de EVIM experimentan la acción de Dios en sus vidas y las vidas de otros a través del mundo”, le dijo McPhee, miembro de la iglesia episcopal de San Mateo [St. Matthew’s] durante toda su vida, a ENS. “Aun más, por compartir sus experiencias con sus parroquias a su regreso, manifiestan el amor de Dios”.El continuo apoyo a YASC y EVIM es esencial a la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal, añadió McPhee. “Debemos participar con nuestros asociados fuera de EE.UU. Este compromiso permanente es importante para ellos y es vital para nosotros. Vivimos nuestro pacto bautismal estando con aquellos que son diferentes de nosotros, viendo el rostro de Cristo reflejado en ellos y trabajando juntos por la misión de Dios”.La Resolución A112, presentada por la comisión permanente, llama a la Convención General a alentar a las diócesis, seminarios y parroquias a captar y apoyar misioneros para el YASC y el EVIM. La resolución propone un aumento en el número de participantes del YASC a 30 en 2016, 40 en 2017 y 50 en 2018, y en el número de participantes del EVIM de un 10 por ciento anual.En el momento en que la comisión elevó su informe, no sabía que una cifra récord de 45 jóvenes adultos en representación de 27 diócesis presentaría solicitudes para servir en el programa del YASC para el próximo año. Veintisiete por ciento de esos 42 han sido aceptados en el programa para 2015-2016.El presupuesto 2013-2015 aprobado por la Convención General asignó $1 millón “para poner la experiencia misionera al alcance de todos los jóvenes episcopales mediante programas tales como el del Cuerpo de Servicio de Jóvenes Adultos para la experiencia de un año de receso entre la escuela secundario y la universidad o el trabajo”.Esa asignación es parte del modo en que la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera está respondiendo a la tercera Marca de la Misión, que llama a los miembros de la Comunión Anglicana a responder a las necesidades humanas en amoroso servicio.La Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS) es el nombre legal y canónico con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión.“Cuando me inscribí por primera vez en el YASC, no tenía idea de cuánto cambiaría mi vida”, dijo Will Bryant de la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte Occidental, que pasó su primer año de misionero del YASC trabajando con la Misión a los Marineros en Hong Kong, y que actualmente está en su segundo año en el Centro de Refugiados Joel Nafuma en Roma.“En mis dos años con el programa he crecido espiritual y mentalmente de maneras que nunca habría imaginado”, le dijo él recientemente a ENS.Bryant dijo que sus experiencias con el programa del YASC le han ayudado a darse cuenta de que “si eres un refugiado afgano, un marino filipino o un misionero estadounidense, todos buscamos lo mismo: un lugar seguro y cómodo al que llamar hogar, empleo para mantener a nuestra familia y comunidad, y una conexión más profunda con nuestro Creador… Ahora bien, después de vivir en dos países y continentes completamente diferentes, puedo decir con toda propiedad que me siento más confiado en mi fe y en mis capacidades como ser humano. No sé exactamente lo que el futuro me depare después de mi tiempo en el YASC, pero sí sé que sea cual fuere, estaré bien preparado gracias a las lecciones que he aprendido como misionero”.“Los miembros del YASC son valiosos por el desarrollo de relaciones con asociados globales y por lo que ellos devuelven a las comunidades de las cuales provienen”, según la explicación ofrecida por la Comisión Permanente sobre Misión Mundial en su informe a la Convención General [que aparece] en el “Libro Azul”. “Asimismo, los participantes de EVIM son siervos importantes de la Iglesia, en la medida en que aportan su experiencia y pericia a los lugares donde los reciben, y traen de vuelta la Iglesia global a sus comunidades”.El Consejo Ejecutivo ha presentado la Resolución A013, que le pide a la 78ª. Convención General que afirme el creciente éxito de la obra de la misión global de la Iglesia, “especialmente las redes, las relaciones y los desarrollos espirituales globales vistos” en los programas del YASC y el EVIM.La resolución pide que las oportunidades para la misión global sea “incrementadas, diversificadas y priorizadas” para el tiempo en que la 79ª. Convención Anual se reúna en Austin, Texas, en 2018, e insta a cada diócesis “a explorar las oportunidades para la obra de la misión mundial y anima a tantas personas como sea posible a solicitar, asistir y completar una asignación de misión tal como estos programas hacen posible”.Martha Gardner, presidente del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Misión Mundial del Consejo Ejecutivo, dijo que todos los episcopales “deben saber de la maravillosa obra que están haciendo nuestros misioneros”. Ella afirmó que había oído muchas historias acerca de los beneficios mutuos experimentados por los misioneros de la Iglesia Episcopal que prestan servicios a través del mundo, pero también por sus asociados anglicanos y tanto en las diócesis que los envían como en las que los reciben.“Me encanta el modelo de cómo hacemos nuestra labor de misión global”, agregó. “Trabajando con diócesis e interconexiones, nuestro personal de asociación global facilita las asociaciones en todos los niveles, y es imperativo que continuemos apoyando esa labor que les ofrece a los episcopales de todas las edades una oportunidad de ser agentes de la misión transformadora de Jesús en el mundo”.La Iglesia Episcopal tiene una larga historia de participación misional, explicó McPhee, citando a los primeros misioneros que viajaron a lugares del Medio Oeste y del Oeste de Estados Unidos y a las mujeres respaldadas por la Ofrenda Unida de Gracias que trabajaron en Asia y en África.Pero la obra de la misión ha cambiado, dijo ella. “En lugar de un compromiso de por vida, una parroquia o una diócesis pueden enviar a misioneros de cortos plazos para un compromiso de dos a tres semanas. Nuestro Cuerpo de Servicio de Jóvenes Adultos envía personas a servir por uno o dos años en una variedad de lugares alrededor del mundo. Algunos de los miembros del YASC encuentras que son llamados a la ordenación o un compromiso más profundo y más largo de servir a la misión de Dios en el mundo. Otros prosiguen otras carreras, pero todos ellos citan el tiempo [pasado en el YASC] como enriquecedor y transformador de sus vidas.“Acaso lo más importante, la manera en que pensamos acerca de la misión global ha cambiado”, añadió ella. “Vemos a nuestros hermanos y hermanas en Cristo alrededor del mundo como asociados y compañeros, entendiendo que tenemos mucho que aprender los unos de los otros”.El Rdo. David Copley, funcionario de la DFMS a cargo de la misión, resaltó una nueva iniciativa que ofrece la oficina del personal de misión para apoyar a misioneros de corto plazo que pueden proporcionar destrezas específicas.Por ejemplo, Jim y Mary Higbee y Sue Dauer visitaron Kenia durante sólo un mes en 2014 para brindar adiestramiento a auxiliares de magisterio que continuarán supervisando en los próximos años.La oficina de Copley también sigue trabajando con las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal para fortalecer sus relaciones de compañerismo y respaldar los emplazamientos de misión a mediano plazo de adultos de más edad así como de colocaciones de miembros del YASC.“Veo el servicio de la misión como proporcionando experiencia técnica para capacitar a otros y también como una avenida para fortalecer las relaciones de compañerismo a través del ministerio de presencia”, le dijo él a ENS.La Comisión Permanente sobre Misión Mundial (SCWM) ha seguido promoviendo y apoyando el envío de misioneros del YASC y del EVIM “con el propósito de fortalecer y profundizar las relaciones a través de la Comunión Anglicana, cumpliendo nuestro pacto bautismal de ‘buscar y servir a Cristo en todas las personas’”, según este informe.La comisión reconoció que su futuro es incierto, pendiente del resultado del informe a la Convención General del Equipo de Trabajo para Reinventar la Iglesia Episcopal.Sin embargo, algunos miembros del SCWM esperan y ruegan que los cimientos de las múltiples relaciones globales que han estado fortaleciéndose durante muchos años de trabajo compasivo permanezcan sólidos… El nivel de confianza que la obra del SCWM ha establecido a través de los años debe fortalecerse, especialmente en este tiempo de agitación mundial, en lugar de debilitarse por graves cambios que nuestros asociados globales pueden no entender con claridad. Advirtiendo eso, el SCWM está avanzando con metas de ampliar el trabajo que ya ha comenzado, restaurar la confianza que se ha visto socavada por promesas incumplidas y capitalizar en el interés vital en la obra misionera que los jóvenes y los jóvenes adultos están desplegando”.Para más información acerca del programa misionero, diríjase al Rdo.

The original project signed by the architects Sylvio Sawaya and Edimilson Tinoco dates back to 1972. Over the years and after successive interventions, the construction gradually became uncharacterized. In 2017 we made a remodeling proposal respecting the main elements of the original project and added a leisure annex, resulting from the dialogue and demands of the current owners. The intervention in the house had three approaches: remodeling of the leisure area and garden, recovery of original elements of the project that were degraded and occasional reforms inside and outside the house.Save this picture!© Cassio ObaSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Cassio ObaThe first is an addition to the back of the house, an extension was made in concrete and steel that connects to the building through a bridge and glass cover. The choice of materials and their structural independence seeks to emphasize their autonomy in relation to the original construction. This intervention creates a large balcony for the couple’s suite and a covered area integrated with the social area of the house. All the necessary infrastructure to host events was condensed into a concrete block that supports the roof. The second approach is more subtle and is about the recovery of original elements of the house, maintenance was shown to be necessary mainly in its structural elements and floors. The exposed concrete beams and pillars were sanded, and resined, redoing, more stretched portions of its structure; the ground floor and mezzanine have been recovered.Save this picture!© Cassio ObaSave this picture!AxonometricSave this picture!© Cassio ObaThe third and last approach is about small adaptations inside and outside the house that seek to respect the 70’s project and meet the needs of the present moment.

Community and labor meet to fight Philadelphia privatization

June 15, 2021

first_imgGathering against privatization, March 11.WW photo: Ben CarrollPhiladelphia — Against a background of mounting attacks on public employee unions here, community and labor activists came together March 11 to address their common crisis at a forum against the privatization of postal, education and other government services.The meeting, held at Service Employees Local 668 union hall, was co-chaired by retired letter carrier Joe Piette and Johnnie Stevens, a New York City community activist, both members of Community Labor United for Postal Jobs and Services (CLUPJS).Stevens began by stressing the importance of organizing community support for the unions that provide vital services. He discussed his recent experience with Parents to Improve School Transportation (PIST) in galvanizing the community behind striking New York City school bus workers trying to defend their union.Stevens also gave the example of youth in Harlem, active with the Occupy Wall Street movement, who took over a post office to drive home the point that postal jobs are one of the few places youth without higher education can get jobs with decent wages and benefits.Piette told the crowd: “Whether we’re postal workers, teachers, state store workers, city workers or neighborhood activists, the drive to privatize adversely affects all our communities. The services we provide are not only decreased or eliminated, but lower-paid jobs through privatization mean more poverty for our neighborhoods.“Since the 1970s, corporations have exported millions of formerly union jobs to low-wage countries. These greedy billionaires have the gall to continue lowering our wages and benefits and attacking union jobs in the U.S., even when their profits are high.”Piette said: “The percent of workers in unions today is down to 1929 levels, leaving many without health care and pensions. … The austerity budget being pushed through Congress will furlough federal workers and cut funding for social programs from school lunches to environmental protection. Only the interest payments to the bankers — over $450 billion — are shielded from the ‘sequester.’”Gwen Ivey, president of the Philadelphia American Postal Workers Union, stressed: “What’s happening with the post office is not due to the decline of mail or because people don’t want to work.  The bigger monster we’re dealing with wants to privatize it all. In 2006, Congress mandated pre-funding of health benefits for workers who might not even be hired for 75 years. They are sabotaging the post office. Customers are made to stand in long lines. They want you to take your business somewhere else.”“They didn’t notify the union of plans to close 15 stations here,” said Ivey.  “We found out by word of mouth.  We held rallies and were able to save all but three.  We have to stick together. It’s not just about postal workers not getting paid, it’s about services to our communities.”Rosa María de la Torre of CLUPJS talked about how the organization came about in the Chelsea area of New York, where she has worked as a tenant organizer for 18 years. “We knew all the issues are linked,” she said. “CLUPJS is now a national organization dealing with a very local, very intimate neighborhood issue. With privatization, everything will be more expensive. We are already seeing the impact of these attacks on our block with mom-and-pop stores boarded up and replaced with banks and Starbucks. … ‘Affordable’ housing is geared to people making $75,000 and up. … This is affecting the quality of life of everyone in our area. Along with our local post office, tenants, seniors, youth and postal workers are all on the list to be shut down,” she concluded.Teachers, city and state workers affectedSeveral members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1776 talked about Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s campaign to privatize 600 state stores that sell wine and spirits. Local 1776 representative Chris Naylor explained how legislation currently in Harrisburg [the state capital] would result in the loss of 5,000 good-paying union jobs, along with retirement security and health care benefits.“Every year, $530 million from sales at the state stores goes into the state treasury to be used to benefit every resident of Pennsylvania.  Although only 43 percent of people in the state drink alcohol, 100 percent benefit,” Naylor noted. “Corbett’s proposal would turn this public profit over to Walmart, Rite Aid and convenience stores like 7-Eleven.”Danyell Dahn, a Philadelphia Federation of Teachers member and an organizer with the Teachers’ Action Group, said the efforts to sabotage the post office are exactly like what is happening with education. “The issue is about inequality. It’s not about an achievement gap, it’s about an income gap,” she said.“The Philadelphia School Reform Commission closed 23 public schools, yet the one item in the budget that went up was money for charter schools and a huge amount at that. Then the district leaked their proposed contract to the PFT that the district would ‘no longer be responsible for providing books, teachers’ desks, copy machines or water fountains’ in the schools, while seeking longer work hours, elimination of seniority and major cuts in pay and benefits of up to 13 percent with no raise in pay until 2017.”Gwen Snyder, executive director of Philadelphia Jobs with Justice, commented that the SRC had a plan to close the schools years ago.  “Corporate America’s plan for this decade is to privatize the hell out of the public sector and destroy the unions. We have been constantly fighting a defensive battle. We need to be voting with our feet to expose the lie that ‘privatization is good for the people.’” Snyder was one of 19 demonstrators arrested attempting to stop the March 7 SRC meeting when they voted to close schools.No borders in workers’ strugglesA lively discussion followed the speakers. One person commented that the sale of wine and spirits in convenience stores would keep a lot of young people from getting summer jobs since workers must be over 21 to sell alcohol.  Another called for a movement like the Montgomery Bus Boycott to boycott any agency attempting to privatize. Patrice K. Armstead with Building People’s Power spoke of the need to educate parents on the history and value of public schools and to let them know how detrimental it is to privatize.Berta Joubert-Ceci of Workers World Party raised how new ways of struggle in Latin America, particularly in Venezuela, are leading workers to take control over their workplaces. “Before the Occupy movement, there was the struggle by the Chicago Windows and Doors workers, who occupied their factory to save their jobs and won. The Bank of America didn’t want to give money to the owners to make payroll.”Noting that most of those workers were Latinos and Latinas, Joubert-Ceci stated: “Our fight is a global one. The old saying that ‘there are no borders in the workers’ struggle’ is even truer today.”People were urged to pack City Hall on March 14 to stop Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter’s attempt to impose a contract on American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees District Council 33 and to rally on March 24 in support of the call by the National Association of Letters Carriers to “Save Our Post Office!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Changes and Challenges Loom for 2018 Farm Bill

first_img By Andy Eubank – Sep 8, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Changes and Challenges Loom for 2018 Farm Bill Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Changes and Challenges Loom for 2018 Farm Bill looking-ahead-to-next-farm-billMary Kay ThatcherAgriculture organizations across the country are already turning their attention to the development of the 2018 farm bill. The American Farm Bureau Federation is putting together some early policy ideas in anticipation of testimony before the House and Senate Ag Committees as early as next spring. Mary Kay Thatcher, senior director of congressional relations with AFBF, said some changes need to be made in the 2018 farm bill compared to the 2014 bill.“Well, certainly we’ve heard from our cotton producers and our dairy folks, that they don’t think the new programs that were put into effect are working for them. Fairly low participation in both programs and most folks feeling again like they just don’t provide an adequate safety net.”The biggest challenge in writing a new farm bill is not enough money.“I think one of the biggest issues we’re going to face in the next farm bill is we’re going to have less money to write the farm bill than we had when we wrote the 2014, and obviously, prices are going to be much lower than they were then. So, you know, when it’s really a tough time and we need additional dollars, we’re going to have to find a way to do it with fewer instead of more.”The farm safety net in the next farm bill will be a hot topic of discussion.“We already know that there’s financial struggles in the country, prices are not good for most commodities, and even for the few that are, they’ve been in the tank mostly for the last year or so,” Thatcher explained. “We know that farm bills are always harder to write when you’re facing difficult times. We know that crop insurance will continue to be in the bullseye, primarily because it costs more than does a commodity program or the conservation program, but we’re going to have to work diligently to bring the conservation groups, the nutrition groups, and the farm groups together to hold a very strong farm bill.”She said there will be a push by some in Washington to split the nutrition title away from the farm bill, and the Farm Bureau says that simply can’t happen.“About 79 percent of the cost of the farm bill is the nutrition programs, but we know that especially in the House of Representatives that it’s largely urban, that if we split nutrition and farm programs apart, we simply don’t have the votes to pass an adequate farm bill with a good safety net. So, we need to have our members carry the message right now to their members of Congress, both House and Senate, we do not want to split.”And she said farmers need to let their senators and representatives know that times are tough in the agricultural economy.“We are having difficulties and farm programs are based on let’s provide assistance when prices and yields and revenues are low, and now is the perfect time to see that that’s indeed the confluence of events that are happening and we have to protect farmers with an adequate safety net.”Source: AFBF Facebook Twitter Previous articleSenate Ag Consolidation Hearings SetNext articleNo Major Problems Expected for Harvest Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Three days of national mourning are declared by President René Préval.28 June 2000: About 10 days after being arrested by police, Jean-Wilner Lalanne, suspected of being a link-man between those who ordered the killing and those who carried it out, dies during a minor hospital operation. When the new investigating judge orders a new autopsy two months later, the body is found to have vanished from the morgue.September 2000: After receiving threats, Jean-Sénat Fleury resigns as investigating judge and is replaced by Claudy Gassant.January 2001: Several members of the senate object to Judge Gassant’s request to interview Sen. Dany Toussaint (Fanmi Lavalas) as a witness. Senate president Yvon Neptune says “a simple little judge cannot summon a member of the senate.” On 30 January, shortly after questioning aides of Toussaint, the judge is threatened with a gun by a Fanmi Lavalas parliamentary deputy, Millien Rommage.3 March 2001: Soon after being sworn in for a new term as president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide promises that the government will provide the means for the judiciary to properly investigate the murder.25 May 2001: Toussaint is officially accused in the case and he and his lawyer are informed in person by the judge in his chambers. A few days later, the senator accuses Gassant of having exerted pressure on people in jail to implicate him in the murder. He cites illegally-made interviews with some of those being held in the case and on the basis of these, his lawyers file at least six suits before four different courts (civil, summary, appeal and supreme). Supporters of Toussaint stage several demonstrations in Port-au-Prince demanding that Gassant be arrested.

The police are also criticised for not having executed warrants to arrest Richard “Cha Cha” Salomon, considered Toussaint’s right-hand man, and Franck Joseph, the senator’s bodyguard, who have also ignored the judge’s summonses.9 November 2001: Panel Rénélus, seen as an important suspect in the case, is lynched by a crowd of demonstrators in front of a provincial police station the day after his arrest. Judge Gassant, present at the scene, says Rénélus was “handed over to the crowd by the police.”3 January 2002: Judge Gassant’s term of office ends and he leaves for Miami six days later.23 January 2002: President Aristide names three judges – Josué Agnant, Betrand Sainvil and Joachim Saint-Clair – to replace Judge Gassant.31 January 2002: The senate committee considering the request to lift Toussaint’s parliamentary immunity refuses to take a decision. It says it needs more information and asks the new investigating judges to supply it.24 June 2002 : The investigation into the murder of the radio journalist Jean Dominique has been handed over to Judge Bernard Saint-Vil, who has been in charge of the enquiry into the supposed attempted coup last 17 December. The decision to transfer to him all the former responsibilities of Judge Claudy Gassant was reportedly taken at a meeting of judges on 24 June presided over by senior judge Jocelyne Pierre.

John Muir students have taught our entire city how harmoniously the terms ‘urban’ and ‘farm’ can coexist, and Pasadena Community Garden is bringing 60 diverse city families onto a lot that was once part of Gov. Henry Markham’s historic ranch to learn to grow their own food.”Read added, “The Conservancy is especially pleased to make a grant to the Roots & Shoots community garden project at the Arboretum, in honor of our own Trustee Susan Kranwinkle, who was one of the founders of Roots & Shoots in 1994.”Mrs. Kranwinkle, an avid gardener, chef, and cookbook author, co-founded the Roots & Shoots project to help teach students where their food comes from. Today, the Roots & Shoots project serves 75 Pasadena-area students each year from schools including Willard Elementary, the Frostig Center, and the Gooden School. The students till the soil in the Arboretum’s children’s community garden twelve to fourteen times each year, growing fruits and vegetables and learning to cook with them during visits to the Arboretum from guest chefs.Each grant announced today by the Conservancy provides a $1,000 unrestricted cash donation, with the exception of the grant to Pasadena Community Garden at 720 S. Pasadena Ave., which receives a $3,000 Community Access Grant to underwrite five scholarships for families residing in “food desert” areas north of the 210 Freeway far from grocery stores. Scholarships will cover garden membership for two years, along with plants and supplies.Last year, more than 30 longtime Pasadena leaders came together to found the Conservancy, with a goal of providing long-term stewardship for community gardens as cultural, educational, and nutritional resources for Pasadenans as our city becomes increasingly urban. The majority of Pasadenans currently reside in multi-family housing, rather than freestanding houses with separate, private gardens, making community gardens increasingly desirable. In addition to grantmaking, members of the Conservancy provide advocacy and support to the city of Pasadena and its Public Health Department towards a joint goal of building and maintaining community gardens at several of the city’s public parks, modeled after the community garden at Altadena’s Loma Alta County Park, which has been thriving since 1984. Community gardens in public parks could take advantage of existing restrooms, electricity, irrigation systems, meeting spaces, and lighting.

California Bill Would Allow More Housing Near Transit Stops

According to the California Department of Housing and Community Development, 97.6 percent of California cities failed to meet their affordable housing goals in 2017. One proposed bill (SB 827) introduced by Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) would attempt to combat this problem by eliminating restrictions on the number of houses permitted to be built within a half-mile of train, bus, and other transit routes and stations, as well as increasing height limits on new buildings constructed within that zone.“We have a severe housing shortage and part of the problem is that core areas with transit access don’t allow much housing,” Sen. Wiener told the LA Times. “That creates sprawl, huge commutes and it’s not sustainable.”How much of a difference could this change really make? Quite a bit, according to a 2016 study by think tank the McKinsey Global Institute. They found that California could add as many as 3 million new homes if the state rezoned to allow housing within the half-mile limit of transit stops.However, the bill has its detractors. Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz didn’t mince words when he called the plan “the worst idea I’ve ever heard.” Koretz, who represents parts of LA’s Westside, told the Times, “I would have a neighborhood with little 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s single-family homes look like Dubai 10 years later.” Koretz argues that the increase in home building would dramatically increase traffic in the existing single-family neighborhoods that would be affected.This past week, LA Mayor Eric Garcetti joined the voices in opposition to SB 287, citing concerns about affordability issues with the new home developments and potential impacts to the existing “character” of the neighborhoods that would be affected.Garcetti spokesman Alex Comisar said in a statement, “Mayor Garcetti appreciates Sen. Wiener’s bold proposal to help address our housing crisis, and the most recent amendments are encouraging. But this bill is still too blunt for our single-family home areas.”California YIMBY, a statewide pro-housing group, remains a key supporter of the bill, arguing on their website that “Last year, California passed laws to designate over $800 million per year for public transportation by increasing vehicle and gas taxes. SB 827 makes good on that investment by allowing more people to live near transit-rich areas.” Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe About Author: David Wharton Home / Daily Dose / California Bill Would Allow More Housing Near Transit Stopscenter_img March 4, 2018 2,677 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Affordable Housing Affordable Housing Crisis California Housing Crisis Housing Inventory SB 287 2018-03-04 David Wharton  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Previous: Tiny Homes Could Help the Homeless Next: How Could Import Tariffs Affect Housing?last_img read more
