In response to the DTLA2040 Community Plan, a coalition of Skid Row community members and groups have created a coalition: Skid Row Now & 2040. The coalition created a Vision Paper for the Skid Row community and additional ideas for funding housing that will get people off the streets and into housing.

As a result, the Department of City Planning created a special zone where only affordable housing with extremely low and deeply low-income levels can be built: the i X 1 zone. But the zone doesn’t cover all of Skid Row, it squeezes affordable housing into the blocks East of San Pedro: between Alameda and 5th and 7th street. We want the expansion of the i X 1 zone to the existing Skid Row neighborhood boundaries: from Main to Alameda, and from 3rd to 7th street.
