California's housing affordability crisis has created lasting repercussions throughout the state, from Redding to San Diego and everywhere in-between. Are local or state laws and regulations creating a greater barrier to housing construction? What solutions might help reduce those barriers with a minimum impact on other important considerations, such as environmental impact, public participation and equitable treatment of low-income communities of color? A new study looks at the land use entitlement processes of 16 high-cost California cities, including Oakland, over a four-year period in an attempt to answer some of these pressing questions. Come learn more about the study's findings.
