Stop State Takeover

Preserve Local Control

Save Your City, Sue the State

Stop State Takeover!  Make the Audit Count!


Goal:  Recruit 10 or more cities and counties to be co-plaintiffs in an HCD/RHNA lawsuit

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.
