United Neighborhoods for Los Angeles (UN4LA) is made up of community members who are frustrated by City Hall's unwillingness to listen to their concerns about poor planning, the lack of affordable housing, crumbling infrastructure and inconsistent enforcement of building codes. Growth is necessary for any city to survive, but the City of LA has shown a disturbing disregard for accepted planning principles by the frequent use of spot zoning and by recklessly handing out entitlements to developers with deep pockets. Instead of well-planned, sustainable growth, for the past several years City Hall has fostered a culture of rampant real estate speculation, approving projects that have made life more difficult, more costly and less healthy for the majority of Angelenos. UN4LA believes in community-driven planning, in other words planning that starts in our neighborhoods and meets the needs of the public at large, not just the select few. If you feel the same way, we welcome the opportunity to work with you.
