sf.citi is proud to stand in support today of Governor Brown’s signing of the landmark affordable housing package. This has only been made possible today through the steadfast leadership of our City’s representatives, Senator Scott Wiener, Assemblymember David Chiu and Assemblymember Phil Ting, Mayor Lee, and the tireless efforts of our partner organizations.
These measures will ensure that all San Franciscans are given the opportunity to a quality life and stable housing through streamlining affordable housing development, providing sustainable funding for new home development, and providing funding to shelter those experiencing homelessness. In San Francisco alone, we will be building 30,000 new and rehabilitated housing units by 2020 with over 17,000 units already created.
We at sf.citi believe that there is a home for everyone in San Francisco and that all San Franciscans, both newcomers and long-time residents, will benefit from this landmark legislation. This legislation will be essential to the continued job growth and prosperity of this city, and will allow for us to continue growing our economy to be the strongest in the country.
Join us in commending our legislators today for having the courage and perseverance to make this housing legislation a reality.
