A Critical Win for Affordable and Supportive Housing
One of Consensus’ most important projects, Enlightenment Plaza, was featured in the LA Biz Journal this week! Consensus hosted a virtual meeting and mobilized an overwhelming number of supportive stakeholders to make their voices heard during the Los Angeles City Planning Commission hearing held online last week. The Commission unanimously approved the entitlements package putting 454 units of affordable and permanent supportive housing on track to be built. With LA facing a historic homelessness crisis right now, supportive housing projects such as Enlightenment Plaza have been shown to be one of the best ways to help vulnerable populations, with over 90% of supportive housing residents staying housed and showing improvement on a variety of quality-of-life indicators. Through projects like Enlightenment Plaza, we can help solve LA’s affordable housing and homelessness crisis once and for all!
