The Los Angeles City Council recently approved a plan for greatly increased housing near the Expo line in Los Angeles. The "Exposition Corridor Transit Neighborhood Plan", would expand housing density and affordable housing near the Expo Line - a train that moves between downtown LA and Santa Monica.
Housing density will be increased by over 6,000 housing units, incentives to build affordable housing, emphasis on walkability projects, and more.
The move comes on the heels of the city council also approving plans for additional shelters for the homeless throughout the city. Further action is scheduled on the council's agenda related to housing, homelessness, and related issues.
