Awareness of the Impact of State Housing Legislation
State housing legislation aimed at solving California’s housing crisis has a major impact on how San Diego plans for it share of new housing. I hold public meetings in order to help residents engage with the planning process. Legislation such as SB330 (The Housing Crisis Act of 2019) would have suspended until 2026 the Coastal 30 FT height limit in La Jolla when it was first introduced in the state senate in February of 2019.
I organized a response group that wrote letters, signed petitions, and notified their neighbors to put pressure on the state senators who wrote the bill. Our hard volunteer work paid off and we were successful in getting SB330 amended to protect the height limit on May 7. 2019.
When purchasing a home, buyers should be refrencing their Community Plan. The place to start is with the County’s TPA (Transit Priorty Map). All of San Diego’s new housing projects will be located within TPAs. The planning model implies that urban sprawl is better than suburban sprawl.

San Diego is undergoing radical changes in the way city and county governments plan for the future.
