UPDATE: 5th graph replaces previously published version of Rosendahl’s position on CCFO
The Public Safety Committee will discuss a controversial plan to amend the Los Angeles Municipal Code and regulate State licensed community care and residential care facilities, Councilmember Bill Rosendahl announced today.
According to the agenda released today, the committee will hold a special meeting on Monday, December 10, 9 a.m. in the John Ferraro Council Chamber on the 3rd Floor of City Hall.
Proponents of the proposal want to define a single housekeeping unit and amend the definitions for rooming and boarding house and family in the current municipal code.
While some argue this will crack down on drugs and crime, others say the ordinance will eliminate shared housing in single family neighborhoods and hurt the most vulnerable in the community, like people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Rosendahl initially supported the proposal but then opposed it when the draft was fleshed out. Rosendahl had serious concerns and is now studying the new proposal and what impact it would have on homes for veterans, victims of domestic violence, homeless children, and others.
The agenda for the meeting can be found on the City of LA website.
Rosendahl wants to hear what you think, and encourages you and your Neighborhood Councils to weigh in on the issue by posting your comments below.
