Hosted by Susan Kirsch, Catalysts for Local Control,
with special guests
Legislators and the department of Housing and Community Development are burdening cities with unrealistic housing quotas called RHNA (Regional Housing Needs Allocations). Top-down mandates do not provide housing that is affordable. Sacramento is forcing local elected officials into compliance. It’s time for bold action to save our cities.
