Subcommittee Recommendations Regarding Affordable Housing
to be Discussed at May 10 Task Force Meeting

SAN DIEGO, CA - Recommendations by subcommittees will be discussed at the May 10 meeting of the City of San Diego’s Affordable Housing Task Force. The meeting will be held at from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Committee Room on the 12th floor of the City Administration Center, 202 C St., in downtown San Diego. The public will also have an opportunity to speak to the task force about affordable housing issues.

The meeting will primarily consist of reviewing and debating the various recommendations that have been presented by the subcommittees on Development, Regulations and Incentives; Finance; Preservation; and Renter’s and Homeowner’s Issues.

Issues discussed at the meetings will be used by the task force to make recommendations on affordable housing to the City. 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 Mayor and City Council will make the final decision on the Housing Element.

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.
