LOS ANGELES ordinance initiative - HOUSING
Los angeles responsible hotel ordinance
Enhanced voucher program for unhoused Angelenos.
- Would require hotels to report room vacancy on a daily basis and accept homeless occupants. Hotels will be subject to city oversight.
- Vacancy reports to be sent to City daily and quarterly
- Permits shall provide the name and address of each hotel’s
- Stockholders (with 10% holding), officers, directors, subcontractors, lessees, and hotel employee’s applications to be subject to CA Public Records Act. In addition, all application information will be posted on a public website.
- Ordinance approved for the November 2024 ballot.
- Recommended Position: Oppose
- Government officials continue to fail to solve the homeless problem, so they take it upon themselves to force businesses to do it for them. This would severely impact our tourism business and tax revenue for the city. As an example, the city of Los Angeles had to pay the Mayfair hotel $11 million dollars in damages.
- The city shouldn’t be casually exposing a person’s private information, but they will have the ability to do so without requesting it. They want to put it out because if someone were to oppose, they would instead come back to each of those individuals and charge them a fee. They may not be saying it but history has shown it.
