Opportunity Housing in San Jose
SV@Home supports Opportunity Housing citywide in San Jose!
Opportunity Housing, San Jose’s General Plan Task Force recommendation to legalize duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes citywide, will be considered by the City Council in August. At that time, Council will decide whether to direct city staff to study Opportunity Housing, including:
- Conducting robust citywide community engagement,
- Studying incentive to include units at affordable or moderately-priced levels,
- Developing tools to minimize displacement risks, and
- Proposing strategies to preserve historic areas.
With a safe, stable place to call home, our children have a better chance of succeeding in school, getting a job, and building their own strong families here. Allowing a greater variety of housing in our neighborhoods can help ensure our children and the next generation can afford to stay and live in the communities where they were raised if they choose to. SV@Home strongly supports Opportunity Housing in San Jose!
