Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin on Wednesday, Jan. 12, released a list of 26 properties owned by the city that his team has identified as being suitable to house people experiencing homelessness.

The locations were selected with criteria that included examining their size and current use.

Galperin found that the city uses only a small portion of its land to address the homelessness crisis, and the 26 properties he identified would provide an additional 1.7 million square feet of space for interim housing.

The locations could support tiny home villages, safe parking and safe camping areas as well as support facilities such as rest rooms, showers and laundry centers, Galperin said.

“Homelessness is an existential crisis for Los Angeles, and things have only gotten worse during the pandemic,” Galperin said. “With tens of thousands of people sleeping on the streets nightly, the city must do more to alleviate homelessness by using the properties it owns.”

Vacant land identified by Galperin includes:

— 394,000 square feet at 10901 S. Clovis Ave. in the Green Meadows area of South L.A.;

— 121,000 square feet at 5975 S. Western Ave in the Chesterfield Square area of South L.A.; and

— 96,000 square feet at 12568 N. San Fernando Rd in Sylmar.

Galperin also identified a 25,000-square-foot parking lot, controlled by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, at 2010 S. Pisani Place in Venice.
