Go Big for Homes and Jobs: How AB 2011 Will Change the Game for Affordable Housing

Evening Forum


5M Building in SF

AB 2011, the Affordable Housing and High Road Jobs Act of 2022 by Assembymember Buffy Wicks, allows residential development to proceed by right in commercial zones. Upon introduction, it quickly became the most high-profile housing production bill of the state legislative year. Come learn the backstory and genesis of this bold legislation directly from the author and sponsors, including how it was crafted to boost housing production in tandem with significant labor standards, protections and benefits and how the proponents overcame opposition by building support among legislators and creating a large statewide coalition of housing advocates, labor unions and urbanists.
