League Offers Informational Housing Briefings

October 20, 2017
The League of California Cities® is sponsoring informational briefings on the 2017 Housing Package and what cities need to know.
 
In 2017, over 130 measures were introduced in an effort to ease the ongoing housing crisis, which is marked by rapidly rising housing costs and declining supply across the state. On Sept. 29, 2017, Gov. Jerry Brown signed 15 bills that comprised the “Housing Package.” These measures fall into three categories; funding; streamlining; and local accountability.

Topics will include:
  • Summary of 2017 Housing Legislation;
  • New Funding for Affordable Housing;
  • Changes to Housing Element Law;
  • Changes to the Housing Accountability Act;
  • Streamlining Housing Approvals; and
  • Options for Cities Moving Forward.
