Pueblo del Sol
Administered by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles, Pueblo del Sol occupies the Los Angeles River-side site of the former Aliso Village housing project. Under the HOPE VI grant program introduced by the Clinton administration, the Garden City-influenced Aliso Village was demolished and replaced by a New Urbanist development, Pueblo del Sol. Whereas Aliso Village consisted mostly of apartment buildings, Pueblo del Sol's housing stock is largely semi-detached single family apartments. Most are subsidized to varying degrees. The project reduced the amount of units from 685 to 377, a 45% reduction that displaced the majority of the former residents. The project has been criticized for reducing the number of units, at a time when Los Angeles suffers a severe shortage of affordable housing. The families that were displaced from the public housing receive priority in the rental or purchase of the new units. (Displaced households can use Section 8 vouchers to find temporary—or permanent—housing elsewhere.) And the residents and managers of the replacement housing are empowered to enforce a zero-tolerance policy of responsible behavior within the premises.
