Housing Production

Nancy worked with other municipal leaders to elevate the voices of Sunnyvale residents who are being displaced by our uneven economy by reading their messages into the record at the League of California Cities Housing Community and Economic Development Policy Committee meetings. Through her efforts, the League of California Cities this year launched a housing production platform. The League of California Cities now advocates for legislation requiring cities to take fourteen immediate actions designed to help spur housing production, while ensuring cities like Sunnyvale retain flexibility. The platform also calls for the Legislature to provide new funding mechanisms for affordable housing. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has put a pause on these efforts, but as Mayor, Nancy will continue to push her colleagues around the state and the state legislature to build more affordable housing with all due haste.
