Morning Report

  • While many apartments in the City of Los Angeles are covered by rent control, there is no similar law in neighboring East Los Angeles, an unincorporated community governed by L.A. County. But this week tenants from East L.A. and other areas are scheduled to hold a march to demand rent control protections in unincorporated portions of the county. Curbed L.A.
  • “The 14th Factory,” a huge multi-media art exhibit housed in a Lincoln Heights warehouse complex, has generated a lot of Instagram photos and attracted many visitors willing to pay the $18 admission. But L.A. Times reviewer Sharon Mizota was not impressed for the most part. She described the sprawling show as a “herculean vanity project in which everything fairly shouts ‘Art!’ …. If art were a ride, I’m pretty sure it would look like “The 14th Factory.”
  • 4th District Councilman David Ryu has proposed a city program to open a $50 savings account for every L.A. Unified kindergartner. But that proposal could cost as much as $3.4 million a year. Daily News
