As excerpted from NBC 7 San Diego:
The new law aims to alleviate the severe lack of housing for middle-income families in California
Middle-income families in San Diego will soon have a better chance of owning a home thanks to a new state bill signed by the Governor last week. AB 1637 aims to spur construction of middle-income housing, which could help alleviate the severe lack of housing for middle-income families in San Diego. Assemblymember Todd Gloria authored the bill and calls the housing crisis his central preoccupation.
“I do not believe that the Golden State can be a great state if we’re not building housing for the middle class,” Gloria said. “The numbers show that we simply aren’t.”
