City Seeks Input on Local Housing Issues on June 17 and 18, 2008

In a letter dated June 6, 2008, the City of San Leandro invited residents to attend community meetings on local housing issues:

"Dear San Leandro resident or interested party:

The City of San Leandro invites you and your neighbors to attend a community meeting on local housing issues. Meetings will be held on June 17 and June 18, 2008. The meetings are part of a year-long program to update the San Leandro Housing Element, the state-mandated plan addressing affordable housing and housing conservation in the city.

The current San Leandro Housing Element was certified by the State of California in 2003. State law requires that an updated Housing Element be adopted by the City Council and submitted to the State Office of Housing and Community Development by June 30, 2009. State certification is an important prerequisite for affordable housing funds, grants, and other programs that benefit San Leandro residents.

The new Housing Element will include specific policies and actions related to new housing construction and rehabilitation, affordable housing development, first-time homebuyer programs, housing for seniors and others with special needs, and fair housing practices in San Leandro. Your input is an important part of this process.

Each of the two meetings will include a presentation on the Housing Element process, a discussion of housing issues and needs, and opportunities for questions, suggestions, and feedback. All residents and local businesses are encouraged to attend.

Meeting times and locations are as follows:

Housing Workshop 1
Marina Community Center -Auditorium
Tuesday June 17, 2008
6:30-9:00 PM

Housing Workshop 2
San Leandro Public Library-Karp Room
