The bill will now head to the Senate Floor.AB 2442 allows housing developers to obtain multiple density bonuses from local government if the housing development sets aside ten percent for former foster youth, disabled veterans, or formerly homeless individuals.“Disabled veterans and transitional foster youth face a serious affordable housing problem,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “It is vital that we give our local communities tools to meet this challenge.”A multiple density bonus is a zoning tool that enables developers to build more units than normally allowed. AB 2442 expands state law relating to multiple density bonuses that have worked to address rising housing costs and a subsequent lack of reliable, affordable housing that plagues Californian’s most vulnerable populations.“I’m proud to author this bill as it came directly from a constituent, Jeannette Mann, who has been active in All Saints Church in Pasadena, and the 41st Assembly District helping foster youth and the community at large,” said Holden. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Community News Business News Government Assemblymember Holden’s Bill to Provide More Affordable Housing for Former Foster Youth, Homeless and Disabled Veterans Passes Senate Appropriations Committee Published on Tuesday, August 2, 2016 | 11:41 am Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy 0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it center_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Subscribe More Cool Stuff First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published.
