Catalysts launched in March 2021 in response to a barrage of housing bills. The bills dismantle local control over planning and land use and bestow authority to unelected bureaucrats in regional agencies and the state Housing and Community Development Department (HCD). The bills are often based on inaccurate numbers and the unproven pretense that cities are to blame for the housing crisis.
The bills create density and congestion, reduce parking, and impede fire and ambulance vehicles without providing housing that is affordable to lowincome wage earners.
Catalysts seeks to EDUCATE, ENGAGE & EMPOWER citizens and generate solutions that benefit people, neighborhoods and communities.
