StimULI Breakfast: CA’s 2017 Housing Legislation: Meaningful Tools for Change? – SOLD OUT!
On September 15, 2017, Governor Jerry Brown signed one of the largest legislative packages in recent memory to address California’s unprecedented housing shortage.
In enacting this legislation, the Legislature found that with an accumulated unmet housing backlog of nearly 2,000,000 units, California must provide for at least 180,000 new units annually in order to keep pace with growth through 2025. The lawmakers themselves acknowledged that a key factor in this historic crisis is “the absence of meaningful and effective policy reforms to significantly enhance the approval and supply of housing affordable to Californians of all income levels.”
The 15 bills signed by the Governor tackle the housing challenge on several fronts and include new permit streamlining (SB 35), inclusionary rental housing (AB 1505), amendments to strengthen the Housing Accountability Act (SB 167, AB 678, AB 1515), and funding for affordable housing programs (SB 2, SB 3). While the bills are far from a panacea, legislative leaders and the Governor characterize them as an important shift in state housing policies, increasing the commitment to secure housing for all economic segments of the population.
But does this legislative package offer “meaningful and effective” change in housing policies and regulation? What tools, opportunities, and requirements do the new laws create for cities and developers? What are the likely impacts in the short and long-term?
Join our distinguished panel as we explore this new package of state laws and share insights from the public and private perspectives.
