Today, HCD also released maps for Bay Area, Central Coast, Central Valley, Sacramento, San Diego, Southern California and California (statewide), as well as a comprehensive summary document showing which cities and counties in California are now subject to streamlined housing development under Senate Bill 35 (SB 35).

Help Shape the 2017 Housing Package Implementation

Our outreach efforts will continue to evolve in order to ensure we’re engaging a varied range of stakeholders, including advocates, city and county staff, public interest groups, developers, homeless service providers, health and mental-health professionals, and many others. We will host listening sessions, workshops, regional convenings, webinars, and more.
