This video shows that Hollywood is now choked with traffic that elected Los Angeles leaders predicted would be dramatically reduced thanks to massive development near the Red Line transit subway stops. Instead, videographer Casey Maddren shows how he can walk faster than the cars can drive in a jammed-up, overdeveloped Hollywood where the vast majority of people ignore mass transit. The Coalition to Preserve LA is demanding intelligent planning, not greed-driven overdevelopment, by urging voters to approve the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative on March, 7, 2017 ballot.

Instant bulldozer destruction of another affordable L.A. bungalow in this sad video! The City Council says it supports affordable housing, but allows the demolition of 2,000 rent-stabilized units a year.

Dick Platkin, a city planner with 30-plus years working in the public sector in Los Angeles, explains in this video in plain English the mysteries of land-use for anyone wishing to fight overdevelopment with the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative.

Watch our informative video of the Coalition to Preserve LA’s notable achievements to date — and watch a bonus video of citizens from across LA talking about the desperate need to reform LA City Hall.

Recently, TheEastsiderLA published a story about an artist-led movement in Silver Lake, where homes threatened by the L.A. City Council’s support of runaway overdevelopment show their opposition with giant “Up” balloon displays on the rooftops. We hope to end the need for Up Balloon Parties, as shown in this video.

In this video, Los Angeles residents take on the corrupt City Hall system that is paving over neighborhoods, demolishing affordable housing and destroying our sense of place.

Check out the videos from our marches, rallies, partners, battles and victories! The Neighborhood Integrity Initiative starts the process of fixing L.A.’s broken, rigged and unfair planning and land-use system, which is controlled by deep-pocketed developers and powerful City Hall politicians to serve their own self-interests.

The videos show a citywide, grassroots movement that aims to reform L.A.’s broken, rigged and unfair planning and land-use system through the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, which has been placed on the March 7, 2017, ballot.

For too long, deep-pocketed, politically connected developers have controlled City Hall by shelling out millions in campaign contributions to L.A. politicians, who, in return, grant “spot-zoning” approvals for mega-projects that are not normally allowed under city rules, shown in these videos. Ordinary people, who have little clout at City Hall, suffer the consequences — increased gridlock traffic, the destruction of neighborhood character and the displacement of longtime residents, including senior citizens on fixed budgets and lower-income Angelenos.

Check out the videos showing the Coalition to Preserve L.A. aiming to reform City Hall by winning reasonable controls back for all Angelenos.

The Coalition to Preserve L.A. and its supporters are saying no more. We believe that the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative is our best hope to ensure that local residents have greater voice in how their communities grow and develop.
