CITY COUNCIL, COUNTY SUPERVISORS AGREE TO BUILD 10,000 AFFORDABLE UNITS ON PUBLIC LANDS
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors and San Diego City Council Monday agreed unanimously on a resolution aligning the two bodies in plans to construct 10,000 units of housing on government-owned land, use available funding for housing and explore residential density options.
“The resolution the county and city passed allows us to drive toward an ambitious goal of building more affordable housing in the region and puts us in alignment with how to achieve it,” said Nathan Fletcher, chair of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. “This was another important step in strengthening our relationship with the city of San Diego. I hope the other 17 jurisdictions and numerous agencies see this as motivation to join us as we work to build 10,000 units of housing on government land by 2030.”
