May 2023 SMCDFA Monthly Meeting



Housing - Who Needs It? - We ALL Do!

Speaker: Josh Abrams

Principal, Community Planning Collaborative

May is Affordable Housing Month! Join the celebration at our May 3rd meeting with Josh Abrams!

Josh Abrams, Principal with the Community Planning Collaborative, has been instrumental in working with San Mateo County jurisdictions to navigate and complete their Housing Elements.

Josh will talk about the challenge many cities have in getting their Housing Elements approved by the State, the Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA), how difficult it can be for cities to reach their RHNA targets, and how Josh Abrams and 21 Elements support San Mateo County cities in getting it all done. 

Please join us for what promises to be an excellent meeting. The Zoom link information is below:
