City of San Diego Invites Public to Discuss
Affordable Housing Issues at Task Force Meeting
SAN DIEGO, CA - The City of San Diego is welcoming public comment on affordable housing issues and concerns at the upcoming Affordable Housing Task Force meeting at noon on Thursday, Jan. 23.
The task force meeting will be held in the Fourth Floor Training Room of the City's Development Services Center, 1222 First Ave., in downtown.
Issues discussed at the meetings will be used by the task force to make recommendations on affordable housing to City Manager Michael Uberuaga. City staff will begin work this year on the City's 2004-2009 Housing Element, which will include recommendations by the task force as appropriate.
The Affordable Housing Task Force is comprised of 20 members who represent community organizations and planning boards, housing and environmental advocates, charitable organizations, academics, affordable housing developers, realtors, apartment owners, business and labor. The task force will assist in identifying areas of change that will result in an increase to the City's affordable housing stock. Recommendations could include such areas as financial strategies, housing production goals and current regulatory impediments.
