Davis has an enormous affordable housing crisis. Unfortunately, each city council candidate's plan for affordable housing reforms has not been part of the questions at forums. A group of citizens that I am conversing with are concerned about affordable housing, particularly for at risk populations. Please address these questions: 1) What would you do to increase affordable housing?, 2) What are you ideas about addressing the housing crisis in Davis?, and 3) If it were necessary to get university full participation (50% of current and 100% of new students), would you be willing to sue the university, as some UCs have done? submitted by Martha Teeter
We should work with affordable housing nonprofits and facilitate their work in our community. This can be done by dedicating land for affordable housing, requiring new developments to build affordable units and finding funding to support affordable housing.

In California, the resurgence of redevelopment agencies can come to fruition with the next elected Governor. Legislators have introduced a bill (AB 3037) to establish redevelopment housing and infrastructure agencies to fund affordable housing and infrastructure projects in the state.

I support our community’s long-standing commitment to affordable housing. Since the late 1980s, Davis has had inclusionary requirements in its General Plan policies, and in 1990 adopted an ordinance requiring affordable housing for households from extremely ow to moderate income levels.
