Article 34

 

Article 34 is a California state constitutional amendment that requires voter approval for publicly funded affordable housing projects. This 1950 law creates roadblocks for cities by requiring costly elections and adding red tape to the development of affordable housing. State Senators Scott Weiner and Ben Allen recently introduced legislation that, if passed, would place the repeal of Article 34 on the next statewide ballot for voters to decide. Join us to learn more about this law and its impacts on housing production.

Missing the Mark: Examining the Shortcomings of CA’s Housing Goals


At the current pace of development, certain jurisdictions in California will not meet their low-income housing production targets for more than 1,000 years, according to a new brief from Beacon Economics and nonprofit think tank Next 10. The brief, Missing the Mark: Examining the Shortcomings of California’s Housing Goals, grades the state’s 539 jurisdictions on progress toward meeting their current Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) goals. RHNA targets, updated every five to eight years, determine the amount of housing units at each income level that every California jurisdiction needs to permit each 8-year cycle. The study finds most regions are chronically behind on permitting new housing units, and 100 of the 539 jurisdictions have not been participating in the reporting process at all. CCA members are invited to a comprehensive overview of this brief.

323 W. 5th Street

JMF Enterprises, LLC proposes developing an architecturally innovative mixed-use high-rise project at 323 W. 5th St. Inspired by iconic California mid-century architecture, the project will create a new tower, on vacant land, with frontage on South Hill Street and West 5th Street. Plans call for a 53-story (784-foot-tall) mixed-use tower with a luxury hotel and condominiums units, specifically: 31 residential units, 190 hotel guest rooms with approximately 10,000 sf of ballroom space, 29,232 sf of restaurant and bar uses, and 6,119 sf of meeting space. Join us to hear about this new development.
