By Housing, Community, and Economic Development Issue
Affordably priced homes are out of reach for many people and housing is not being built fast enough to meet the current or projected needs of people living in the state. Cities lay the groundwork for housing by planning and zoning new projects in their communities, but they cannot solve the housing crisis alone.
For more than a year, Cal Cities proactively worked with city leaders on solutions to the housing crisis. In February 2020, the Cal Cities Board of Directors overwhelmingly supported a bold housing production proposal that, if fully implemented, will lay the foundation for the immediate production of much-needed housing across all income levels.
Our advocacy efforts are strongest when joined by the voices of city leaders. Visit the action center for a list of current priority legislative bills and proposals, and sample letters of support or opposition.
