The Joint Development team is in the process of updating the Joint Development Policy to strengthen our response to the LA County housing affordability crisis. Our updated policy will determine key aspects of our projects such as affordability levels and land discounts, as well as define important steps in our process such as developer selection and community outreach.

To inform the policy update, we released a Policy Paper to the Metro Board in January which outlines potential tools we may incorporate into the update.

We hosted a public event to share what we’ve learned and hear from the public on important issues such as LA County’s housing and affordability crisis, and the effects of displacement and gentrification. We were joined by over 200 participants who heard opening remarks by Metro Board Director Jacquelyn Dupont-Walker and a panel discussion with housing developers, advocates and representatives from community-based organizations. If you couldn't be there, you can watch a recording of the event here

You can also submit feedback to the Metro Joint Development team on how best to update the Joint Development Policy here . After incorporating feedback from this survey and our Metro Conversations, we will return to the Metro Board to recommend adoption of the updated Policy.
