SPUR Comments on San Jose's Affordable Housing Investment Plan and the Housing Crisis WorkplanJune 19, 2018
SPUR strongly supports the city’s efforts to address the serious housing challenges that the Bay Area faces. We offer comments specifically on planning and zoning tools and on new resources to support affordable housing. SPUR also strongly supports the city’s participation in the regional CASA effort and advocacy on statewide housing legislation, both of which could have significant impacts on planning tools and funding sources for San Jose. Finally, SPUR supports the mayor's proposed development of a strategy to attract and retain senior planners to achieve the city's ambitious goals.
