In this article, you will get all information regarding Measure Requiring LA Hotels to Provide Rooms to Homeless to Come Before Voters – MyNewsLA.com

A proposal that would require hotels in Los Angeles to place unhoused people in vacant hotel rooms and the city to consider its affordable housing needs before approving new hotel developments will come before voters in 2024, it was announced Friday.

The citizen-initiated petition, filed in June, collected over 126,000 signatures and was submitted to the council. The council voted unanimously Friday to place the ordinance on the March 2024 ballot rather than adopt it immediately. The petition arrives as Project Roomkey, a program created in response to the pandemic which provided shelters for more than 10,000 homeless individuals over the last two years, is being phased out.

The ordinance will require a majority vote to pass. If it becomes law, the city’s Housing Department would pay hotels a fair market rate to lodge each person after identifying hotels with vacant rooms. It would require hotels to report the number of vacant rooms to the city and prohibit them from refusing lodging to unhoused people seeking housing through the program.
