Catalysts Call for Donations
An anonymous donor has offered Catalysts for Local Control a grant of $5000 if we can match their donation by December 31st. Please help us to meet this challenge.
In the last 30 days, the Marin Independent Journal has published multiple points of view about housing that challenges the mainstream narrative that cities are to blame for the housing crisis and should adopt measures to build at all costs to meet Regional Housing Need Allocation (RHNA) mandates.
There’s a place for you in Catalysts’ mission to keep planning and housing decisions local.
In our first year, we’ve operated with a strong volunteer base and a modest budget. That will continue! In addition, in order to fulfill aspirations for 2022, we invite you to fund our work to strengthen local control. Contributions will pay for parttime work on the website, digital communication, marketing, and lobbying.
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.
