Sustainable Growth Yolo to Host Housing Element Webinar


The Housing Element process is a little known, but potentially very impactful, required set of policies for Davis and other cities to meet the housing production required by the state. In the next month, there will be multiple public hearings of the draft Housing Element. Sustainable Growth Yolo, a recently formed pro-housing and pro-jobs grassroots activist organization, is hosting a webinar to discuss Housing Elements.

Two speakers will be sharing their expertise in what is required by state law in a housing element and what types of policies can promote the creation of more housing. Dov Kadin, an analyst for the Sacramento Area Council of Government (SACOG), will share the process for Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and what is required from local governments to meet their RHNA. Jes McBride, is a Program Director with YIMBY Law, will share her knowledge in types of policies that can be implemented in a Housing Element that can help promote the production of housing.
