Policy Papers



This policy brief analyzes the California Quimby Act as well as Los Angeles' existing Quimby and Finn implementing ordinances and policies. The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust undertook this analysis to better understand the potential for, and limitations of, Quimby to serve as a mechanism to mitigate the severe deficits in parkland found in Los Angeles' most vulnerable communities.



In developing this analysis, the Land Trust drew upon the expertise of recognized policy experts and held discussions with representatives of the Los Angeles Department of City Planning (DCP), Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP), as well as park and open space advocates.

This report was done in partnership with the LA Neighborhood Land Trust, the University of Southern California GIS Department, and the City of Los Angeles, with administrative support from the Los Angeles Conservation Corps. This report serves as a community garden planning guide designed for residents, organizations and public agencies. This tool will help those interested in community gardens get started; groups using it will have to undertake site specific site research and investigation to move a project forward. Funding for this report came from Community Development Block Grant.
