The City of San Diego Wants Your Input!

Post by dh92126 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 3:31 am

The City of San Diego has put together a draft document, outlining San Diego’s future housing policies, goals and activities. The document is called the Housing Element, which is part of the City’s General Plan. It will guide housing policies from 2021 to 2029.

Take a look at the draft and learn how to submit your comments here: https://www.sandiego.gov/planning/genpl ... mentupdate

Let them know if you feel there are any activities missing from the draft and provide your suggestions on how the City could implement them.

Here are a few questions to think about:

-The City is working to help increase the construction of accessory dwelling units (i.e., granny flats), especially for lower income households. What incentives could the City offer homeowners to construct accessory dwelling units on their properties that are rent-restricted to lower income households?

-The City’s population of senior residents (age 65 and older) will nearly double by 2035. What can the City do to help seniors live comfortably and car-free as they become less mobile and more reliant on special services in the future?

-The City would like to engage in an ongoing dialogue with residents about housing. What would you like to know about housing from the City, and in what ways would you like to hear from the City about housing topics, challenges, and programs?

-The 6th Cycle Housing Element includes a variety of proposed activities for staff to consider, research, explore and potentially implement to help facilitate more housing construction. What activities do you think are missing from the draft, and what are your suggestions for how the City could implement them?
