Los Angeles voters overwhelmingly approved a November ballot measure meant to spur development of affordable housing and ensure that builders rely on local labor. Now, the city’s planning department has released guidelines for a key part of that initiative. Measure JJJ, which passed with nearly 64 percent of the vote, sets affordable housing mandates and hiring restrictions favoring local laborers on residential projects requiring a zoning change or an amendment to the city’s General Plan. It also creates incentives for developers building near transit stops.
