Statement: Chair Nathan Fletcher Supports SB9
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the critical importance of having a safe place to call home. But in the midst of escalating housing costs and a severe housing shortage, it continues to be difficult for Californians to find a place to live. I am supportive of legislation like SB9 (Atkins), the HOME Act, which provides an important tool to create much-needed housing, encouraging smart growth within urban areas and close to existing services and transportation, providing Californians with homes and helping us to reach our climate change goals.
Chair, Board of Supervisors
County of San Diego
