Smart Growth

Those who want to get involved in smart growth/affordable-housing issues can attend the San Diego City council meeting today at 2:00pm.  The City Council members have submitted ideas, summarized here:

  •  Sell or lease government-owned land.
  •  Defer or waive permit/development fees.
  •  Streamline the approval process.
  •  Solicit state and federal funding for affordable housing projects.
  •  Encourage granny flats and smaller houses and lots.
  •  Reduce parking requirements.
  •  Tax rebates for building affordable housing.
  •  Issue specific policy on short-term vacation rentals (Airbnb).
