It's very concerning that HCD certified San Diego's housing element. What type of message does this send to other cities, who are currently trying to wiggle out of rezoning? 
-
Here are a few less than ideal sites included in SD's housing element. Without substantial rezoning of R1 neighborhoods, We worry this plan is a recipe for more displacement and gentrification.

As you can see, government-subsidized Affordable Housing™️ typically serves seniors, folks with special needs, & large families. But it has so much more potential to serve all types of communities.
•
#SB679, which ultimately did not pass, could have made building these homes here in LA a lot easier, faster, and more cost-efficient. We hope to bring back this proposal stronger for the next legislative year.

Gentle density = affordable, inclusive, & sustainable 💚

Enforcing parking *minimum* near transit makes no sense at all! 🤷🏻‍♀️ AB 1401 will fix this - it combats climate change AND makes homes more affordable. It faces an important (read: pass or die) hearing THIS THU, please help support by calling your Senator today:  cayimby.org/call-ab1401
