Stop Mansionization in Los Angeles: Amend the BMO

This petition had 887 supporters


We are residents of Los Angeles, California, and we need your help to fight mansionization (tearing down existing homes and reconstructing super-sized homes that are completely out of character and scale with established neighborhoods).

While we support the rights of homeowners to renovate, expand, or rebuild within reasonable size limits, these “McMansions” violate neighborhood character, degrade quality of life, and damage long-term property values.  McMansions will blight our neighborhoods for decades – long after speculators move on.

We urge you to meaningfully update the flawed 2008 “Baseline Mansionization Ordinance:”  eliminate the bogus and self-defeating “green” bonus, attached garage exemption, and other loopholes that make these monster houses possible.

Mansionization is a citywide problem that calls for a citywide solution. Voters across your districts and across the city want mansionization to stop, and we are looking to you for leadership on this vital issue.  Please, AMEND THE BMO.
