Housing

All of our residents deserve equal opportunity for access to quality, income-indexed housing.

Housing which meets varying socioeconomic needs esp. low-income and moderate-income families which includes multi-family units, cluster housing, single-family homes, modular and prefabricated houses & townhouses must be high priority. As well, it is important we continue to build and advocate for safe, clean housing & supportive services for people experiencing homelessness, poverty, or chronic illness. 

We can create an inclusive, shared economy which does not uproot current residents.

  • Create mixed use complexes with low/moderate/market rate housing in 10/20/70 ratios which provide communities & developer with +/+ benefits.
  • Create transit-accessible housing options which combine housing, employment y amenity-rich communities-within-communities housing complexes with low/moderate/market rate mixed use situated in areas most in need of transit services and greatly impacted by lack of services to date.
  • Create incentive programs for developers meeting stated mixed rate ratios & levy impact fees to those not in compliance.
  • Ensure state compliance department is holding all communities accountable for zoning regulations and contributing to meeting housing demands or consider impact fees for noncompliance.
  • Strengthen Communities through limited rent stabilization while minimizing impact to small rental unit owners; we can create a shared economy.
  • Utilize air space in creating additional housing opportunities.
  • Consider the social impact of uprooting & displacing marginalized communities and the reparations the state owes to these individuals, rebuilding these communities and placing residents back into their homes.
  • Create mini sponsored villages with tech and corporations willing to share in the profits ~ to UC-Berkeley in Albany (Albany Village) – East Bay communities have the land and inventory; Silicon Valley & SF have the need for property for their employees who need homes and short commutes. Let’s negotiate.
