Oppose CF 11-0262, "Community Care Facilities Ordinance"

      Van Nuys, CA

As written, this ordinance would effectively shut down hundreds of sober livings and transitional housing centers in L.A.; putting thousands of recuperating individuals out on the streets, and cutting them off from a support network and crucial recovery services. These are at-risk youth, veterans, disabled and otherwise vulnerable community members that the government has already turned away, who are trying to better their lives. The homes being threatened right now are safe havens for those who have nowhere else to go. Please help our recovering community continue on their path back to normalcy, and out of harm's way by opposing Council File 11-0262, Community Care Facilities Ordinance.

      After a flood of public comments, and a strong showing of disapproval at the PLUM meeting yesterday, the matter of CF 11-0262 was continued to April 24, 2012 (2:30pm). Until then, we need to keep on the Committee - especially the Chair (Ed Reyes). He still believes the proposal can be passed with minor revisions. The proposed revisions by the Planning Dept are insufficient. As Councilmember Alarcon put it, "A bad idea is a bad idea - no matter when it gets passed."

      This is a bad ordinance and will only hurt not help those who need a helping hand.

      The City needs to face up to it's failure to enforce appropriate nuisance ordinances. Instead it pretends to solve the real problems neighborhoods are experiencing by using what amounts to Collective Punishment by Zoning - doing many times the damage of the original problems. And all because the City doesn't want to call attention to the fact that the problem is an enforcement failure, not a planning issue.

      Los Angeles should be looking at more ways for adults to share living expenses, not making it harder.

      This ordinance will hurt people and cost money. It also will impact broadly any other group of friends or relatives who wish to rent a place together. It threatens everyone, as well as hurting people and places that are saving lives.

      It is the right thing to do.
