Metro Conversations: Joint Development Policy

Join us on Wednesday, April 7 for a conversation on Metro’s Joint Development Policy and learn about how we’re updating it to strengthen our response to the L.A. County housing affordability crisis.

Our Policy determines key aspects of our projects such as affordability levels and land discounts, as well as important steps in our process such as developer selection and community outreach. To inform the update, we released a Policy Paper to the Metro Board in January which outlines potential tools we could deploy with the new Policy.

This conversation will be an opportunity for you to learn about the Policy and the changes we’re considering, ask questions and provide input.

  1. The Red Line has several stops where Joint Developments should have taken place long ago. Do we really need to study the housing problem in Los Angeles any further?
