The Region

August 26, 1986

A nonprofit agency seeking to build a low-income housing complex for the elderly sued the city of Monterey Park, claiming the city's refusal to approve the project was racially motivated. The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by the Taiwanese-American Affiliated Committee on Aging, said the City Council had initially approved the 43-unit project, but reversed itself in April after a new council majority was elected in "a racially charged election" that included charges that residents of the proposed project would be mainly "foreigners."
