Stop State Takeover

Preserve Local Control

2022 CATALYSTS’ TOWN HALL SERIES (on Zoom)

Housing and Litigation

Hosted by Susan Kirsch, Director, Catalysts for Local Control

Alternate Wednesdays, August 10 to September 21, 2022 5:00-6:30 pm

Legislators and the department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) are burdening cities with unrealistic, unattainable, and dangerous housing quotas called RHNA (Regional Housing Need Allocations). But their top down mandates are not providing housing that is affordable.

Sacramento is using threats to force local elected officials into compliance. It’s time to be bold and take back local control in our communities. Here’s how we do it!

LEARN from these extraordinary speakers, expand your network of like-minded colleagues, and join the litigation.
