Continued growth in multi-family residential development throughout the region over the past 3-years has pushed some communities NIMBYs into over-drive. This is in stark contrast to HCD’s recently issued report which indicates that California is in the midst of a housing crisis. Housing production is falling behind and the projected housing need throughout the state is estimated at 1.8 million new units by 2025. Decades of resistance to new housing, especially in coastal communities, have contributed to record high rents, worsened inequality, and displacement of low-income residents. This session will bring together housing advocacy representatives to share their ideas for how O.C. Cities can change the narrative from NIMBY to YIMBY.
