Hi Allies and Community Members,

Sign our Petition. Send Us Your Photo! We need YOUR support to help save & protect Lincoln Heights/Chinatown/Cypress Park neighborhoods!!! Currently the City of LA has a threatening development plan called the Cornfield Arroyo Seco Specific Plan (CASP).

As it stands, CASP will continue to allow the development of unhealthy neighborhoods where homes are located next to polluting facilities and parks next to freeways. CASP does not set aside land or support for the development and preservation of affordable housing, nor does it aim to provide living-wage jobs in a neighborhood where 36% of residents live below the poverty line.

The current draft of CASP is looking to create new homes that most people in our community cannot afford and we want to take this opportunity to ensure that the Plan meets the needs of existing community residents by:

-Creating a Healthy Environment Where We Live, WOrk, Learn, and Play by reducing the exposure of residents to environmental hazards in the Plan area
-Creating More Affordable Housing by offering incentives to new housing developements to be affordable to low-income households
-Creating Safe & Sustainable Jobs for Local Residents by targeting industries that offer living-wage jobs and provide career ladder opportunities, while also protecting existing small businesses & employers
-Providing Meaningful Public Participation on a more consistent and timely basis to update stakeholders, the community, on the progress of the Plan

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
-Sign this Petition
-Send Us Your Photo. Check out our SEACA Facebook, post your pic there.
-Call-In or send a letter to Councilmember Ed Reyes
-Mobilize your friends, family, and community members to also send photos and petitions
-Participate in upcoming meetings & public hearings

THANKS...
THIS IS OUR CITY TOO!!!

      I have lived in Chinatown my whole entire life. My family and friends live there and also in Lincoln Heights. It's OUR HOME.

      My best friend grew up here. If someone as awesome as her can come out of such a community, it deserves a chance to be saved.

      The first beneficiaries of city "development" must always be its current residents of the community, not an imagined future built upon the shattered lives of others. If there is not a provision of affordable housing included in this plan, I can't see how this benefits the people of this community today.
