Measure S Wins Voter Guide Fight

Backers of Measure S, also known as the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, won what could be an important procedural victory when opponents agreed to stop calling a study criticizing the measure an “independent” analysis of it’s potential economic impact. In return, Measure S backers agreed to drop their lawsuit accusing the opponents, the Coalition to Protect L.A. Neighborhoods and Jobs, of submitting inaccurate statements for the voters’ guide, which will be mailed to voters ahead of the March election and includes arguments for and against the ballot measure, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The story reports on the back-and-forth between the two sides in what is likely to be a very contentious political fight for the measure, which could, if it passes, impose a two-year moratorium on building projects that require zone changes or variances. The measure also requires the City to create a general plan and update community plans during the two-year moratorium.

The Buzz has reported on this measure since its introduction because of the potential impact it could have on all our neighborhoods. Not surprisingly, there are lots of different points of view, including housing advocates who oppose the measure, saying it will restrict housing for low-income and homeless people. The Buzz will cover the issue as comprehensively as we can over the next several months before the election in March.
