Santa Monica Residents take back their Development from Politicians.

See the webpage of the Residocracy HERE

The Residocracy Santa Monica LUVE Initiative will:

  • Give voters the right to decide how much development is right for Santa Monica.
  • Protect the existing low-rise character of the beach town that we LUVE.
  • Eliminate incentives given to developers in the new Zoning Ordinance to demolish existing buildings and replace them with larger, taller, denser developments.
  • Preserve our open skies, ocean breezes, and quality of life.
  • Protect renters by stopping the gentrification of neighborhoods and the demolition of existing rent-controlled apartments that are being replaced with non-rent-controlled buildings.
  • Prevent traffic from getting even worse.
  • Get special interests out of our City Hall.

The Residocracy Santa Monica LUVE Initiative will empower residents by requiring voter approval for:
  • Development Agreements
  • Development above the Tier 1 level  (2 to 3 stories across most of the city and 4 stories in downtown Santa Monica)
  • Major amendments to planning policy documents, such as the general plan, any specific plan, the Zoning Ordinance, and the official LUCE maps and zoning district maps
