Background
 The Figueroa Corridor Community Land Trust is located in
  South Los Angeles
 Founded in 2005 in response to Figueroa Corridor Coalition
  for Economic Justice's successful organizing around the
  Staples Center
 Recognition that affordable housing is not being preserved
  and new, permanent, affordable housing is not being
  developed.
 Mission is to “to combat the collision course between slum
  housing, escalating real estate values, gentrification, and
  displacement in Los Angeles’ Figueroa Corridor. “
Opportunities for Land Acquisition
 Real estate bubble burst  hard for FCCLT to acquire land
   Looking for opportunities to acquire land
   City and other agencies (CRA, HUD) have expressed interest in
    long-term preservation of existing affordable housing stock
   If FCCLT can show it can help the city in these efforts, might
    provide way to acquire land at below-market costs with support
    from the govrnement
Opportunities for Land Acquisition

Two Questions

 Can the FCCLT show the city that it can be a valuable
  partner in housing preservation?

 If so, where in South L.A. are the areas most likely to have a
  concentration of at-risk housing?
This Project
 Uses data FCCLT received from CRA/LA listing CRA
  affordable housing covenants set to expire through 2015
 Look to see if South L.A. had covenanted housing at-risk of
  expiration as compared to rest of city
    Also indication of other possible at-risk buildings
   Demonstrate to City it needs FCCLT’s assistance and expertise
    to maintain permanent affordability
 Look specifically at South LA to identify most at-risk
  covenanted buildings in neighborhood

                               626 total



    Charts
Conclusions
 The South LA area has a greater concentration of at risk
  buildings than most parts of L.A.
   This might make the city more amenable to partnering with
    FCCLT
 There is a disproportionate number of at-risk units near the
  Expo Line than in the rest of South L.A.
   The proximity transit and USC probably makes this housing
    more at-risk
Metadata
Model
Some Skills Used *4 Required*
 Seven Layers (Map 7)
 Metadata (All maps)
 Modeling (was used to create map 2, used in all but first map)
 Measurement/Analysis
   Completed spatial joins to calculate the distance between Expo
    Line stops and buildings within 1 mile of the Expo line
 Original data (Map 2: combined LA Parcel Polygon map to
  APN numbers in data, then calculated centroid of covenant
  parcels and rendered XY coordinates to make point file)
Skills Used *6 additional*
 XY transformation of covenant data and LA Parcel map
 Inset Maps
 Attribute Sub-selection (map 8, 9)
 Boundary Sub-selection
   CovInBuffer derived by selecting buildings located within buffer
    (map 9)
 Creating indices (for risk analysis map based on number of
  units, expiration date, property type, and owner type)
 Charts and Images (5, 9)
 Geoprocessing (clipping)
 Extracting info from buffer (calculated sum of buildings in
  Expo Line buffer)
