Designed to encourage home ownership, Los Angeles is allowing developers to build single family homes on very small lots. The ordinance, however, is also triggering evictions of low-income tenants and home designs that neighbors find unsightly. Reporter Derrick Shore goes to a community meeting, meets with homeowners and tenants, and looks at the long-term impact of this controversial development trend.
Featuring Interviews With:
Richard K. Green, director and chair of the USC Lusk Center for Real Estate; Urban Growth/Housing policy expert.
Jennifer Deines, concerned neighbor who supports the Small Housing Ordinance, but is concerned that many developers are taking advantage of the ordinance and building huge structures that don't fit in with a neighborhood.
Raquel Arias, Silver Lake resident facing eviction. Her rent-controlled home will be demolished later this year to make way for 10 single family homes in a new small lot subdivision.
