San Diego LGBT Weekly: Gloria bill to spur production of middle-income housing in San Diego signed by Gov. Brown
As excerpted from San Diego LGBT Weekly:
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A bill to produce more units of affordable housing for middle-income earners in the City of San Diego as well as Santa Clara County has been signed into law by California Gov. Jerry Brown. AB 1637, authored by Assemblymember Todd Gloria(D-San Diego), grants new authority to the San Diego Housing Commission and its counterpart in Santa Clara County to develop and finance mixed-income housing projects.
“We cannot forget about middle-income Californians – those who have jobs and work full-time yet still struggle with the monthly rent and won’t qualify for subsidized housing. They are hurt by this housing crisis too, and that’s why AB 1637 is so important,” said Assemblymember Todd Gloria. “This bill helps the middle-class by ensuring they have a real chance to put a roof over their head at a price they can afford. I am grateful Governor Brown signed AB 1637 and I look forward to finding more solutions like this to ensure the “missing middle” is no longer lost.”
