It costs too much to live in California, and we need radical change to fix it. To address a statewide housing crisis on the local level, Mayor Faulconer is enacting his “Housing SD” plan – a set of dramatic reforms to make San Diego a more affordable place to live.

Bureaucratic institutions have historically been set up to empower anti-housing forces, such as frivolous lawsuits, that delay or deny projects at every turn. Mayor Faulconer is working to get government out of the way so constructing homes becomes easier, faster and less expensive.

The plan’s goals are to increase housing supply, lower development costs and promote smart growth for the benefit of San Diegans at all income levels. To address the shortage of affordable homes, the plan:

  • Spurs construction of low-income and middle-class housing through incentives;
  • Streamlines development standards and speeds up the review process;
  • Directs available funding toward affordable housing; and
  • Encourages growth in transit-friendly areas to make it easier for San Diegans to live close to where they work, which reduces commute times and supports the goals of San Diego’s Climate Action Plan.
