Host Susan Kirsch in Conversation with Tom Campbell talking about The Common Sense Party
A core group of Marin’s staunchest density opponents is strategizing ways to challenge state housing mandates.
Catalysts for Local Control, founded by Mill Valley resident Susan Kirsch, held a teleconference meeting attended by about 36 people on Thursday. The statewide organization’s stated mission is to promote “affordable housing while preserving single-family zoning, the environment and reliable infrastructure.”
While San Francisco has a reputation for being progressive, it’s actually quite conservative when it comes to housing policy.
Fortunately, progressive leaders across the Bay Area are advancing housing solutions to build more equitable, affordable, and inclusive communities and setting an example other cities should follow.
In September, 2021, two days after his recall victory, Governor Gavin Newsom signed SB9 as part of a 24 bill package intended to address housing supply and affordability..Legislation to change housing policy statewide is an ongoing thrust and highly contentious. Can recent and future Sacramento legislation deliver a lot more housing and improve affordability? What are the consequences — good and bad?
Every eight years the state assesses how much housing California needs. This cycle, the assessments doubled and, in some cases, tripled for cities across the state. Palo Alto will be required to build more than 6,000 housing units between 2023 and 2031. Housing is not just a California issue. What’s really causing our housing prices to be so unaffordable?
