An Affordable Housing Workshop on Monday, September 18, 2017 at 10:30 am, hosted by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, will discuss how the money from the League-supported county ballot measure for $580 Million should be spent to create affordable housing. The workshop will be at the Board of Supervisors Chambers at 1221 Oak in Oakland.
The Alameda County Supervisor for our District, Keith Carson, has invited the League to the workshop next Monday. “Alameda County is in the middle of a housing crisis.” According to the Alameda County Public Health Department the lack of affordable housing has led to high rent burdens, overcrowding and sub-standard housing and is forcing people to become homeless. There is an extreme need for safe, decent, and affordable workforce housing.
Measure A1 was passed by voters last November which authorized Alameda County to create a $580 million dollar bond to create permanent affordable housing.
This workshop is an opportunity for everyone to learn how affordable housing is created within Alameda County. This is a chance for your members to come and learn about how we make housing safe, decent, and affordable.
When: September 18, 2017
Time: 10:30am – 1:30pm
