Predictions for California Planning in 2011
In addition to reflecting on his half-right predictions about 2010 from last year, Shigley looks ahead and foresees greater attention being paid to affordable housing.
"Affordable housing advocates have long complained that some small and medium-sized cities waste the 20% of redevelopment tax increment that must be devoted to providing low/mod housing. The well-documented report by the Senate Office of Oversight and Outcomes supports the argument. In 2011, we will see a number of bills that would limit the amount of low/mod housing money redevelopment agencies may spend on planning and administration."
