A recent report by cityLAB UCLA and the Center for Cities + Schools and the Terner Center for Housing Innovation at UC Berkeley found that there are about 75,000 acres of school district land across the state that could potentially be developable for housing for the education workforce. At a density of 30 dwelling units per acre, such properties could contain over 2 million units of housing. However, despite the high interest by school districts to house their staff, those relatively few educational workforce housing projects that do go forward take more than seven years to complete. For this reason, Assemblymember Richard Bloom introduced AB 2295 to expedite this process by considering a school employee housing development on district property to be deemed an allowable use. Join us to learn more about the details of the legislation including various amendments that have been taken through the committee process before being sent to Governor Newsom at the end of the legislative session.
