In August, KIWA in association with DataCenter released Reclaiming Koreatown, a report that presents current and future needs of neighborhood residents and analyzes the challenges facing the multi-ethnic, low-income Koreatown community in Los Angeles.  Rent increases, the reduction of affordable housing, displacement, unaffordable new businesses, an increase in traffic, and a decrease in parking are among top concerns, with up to 90% of surveyed residents expressing concern about these issues. The report calls for development that is accountable to the Koreatown resident community and puts forth a set of principles for improving housing affordability and economic well-being.
