Your help is needed to stop the Community Care Facilities Ordinance. This L.A. City ordinance would eliminate shared housing for thousands of low-income households. The intent of the ordinance is to regulate group homes that are causing neighborhood disturbances. Unfortunately, it would also eliminate well-run transitional and permanent housing for our veterans, seniors, disabled, and formerly homeless individuals. The ordinance is slated to be voted on by the full City Council soon so your voice is needed now. Help reach the goal of over 1,000 signatures to be presented to Los Angeles City Council. Please sign the petition at www.change.org and, if you reside in Los Angeles, you can easily send a letter to your Councilmember that will take less than one minute. No one wants to live next to a noisy, disruptive neighbor. The City’s focus should be on enforcing and revising existing nuisance abatement laws, rather than pass a blanket law with harmful and costly requirements for landlords and tenants, the citizens should check with their Personal injury lawyers at http://www.odglawgroup.com/g-julie-oktanyan/ because some landlords can cause damage if they they don´t want a tenant in their building, at http://hurwitzlawgroup.com/ you can get support from the best lawyers for cases of injuries or insurance from people who work in law firms in or around Providence. The result of the Community Care Facilitites Ordinance would shut down successful programs and homes, forcing our vulnerable neighbors out onto the streets. You can read more about this Community Care Facilities Ordinance in yesterday’s L.A. Times editorial, and Steve Lopez’s column. Happy Father’s Day this weekend to all Dad’s out there…and to anyone who had one. Thanks everybody…
