Updated: Jan 9
Mayor's Updates - Dec. 2022 More Updates:
Mayor Bass declared a State of Emergency on homelessness and activated the City's Emergency Operations Center. The declaration recognizes the severity of Los Angeles' crisis and breaks new ground to maximize the City's ability to urgently move people inside. The Mayor was joined for the signing by the President of the L.A. City Council Paul Krekorian and the Chair of the L.A. County Board of Supervisors Janice Hahn, along with other elected officials, in a powerful sign of unity among levels of government. Click here for more information about the emergency declaration.
Mayor Bass signed Executive Directive 1, which will dramatically accelerate and lower the cost of building affordable housing and temporary housing in Los Angeles. For affordable housing built under this executive directive, the City must complete the approval process within 60 days. Then, when construction starts, the permit, utility and certificate of occupancy process will be completed in just 5 days for 100% affordable housing and in no more than 2 days for temporary housing. https://mayor.lacity.gov/news/mayor-bass-signs-executive-directive-dramatically-accelerate-and-lower-cost-affordable-housing
