Assemblymembers Roger Dickinson, Ken Cooley and Richard Pan have formally supported the preservation of the landmark Inclusionary Housing Ordinance in the Sacramento County Housing Element with a letter to the Sacramento Board of Supervisors.

The Inclusionary Housing Ordinance, which  builds homes for Extremely Low Income people–our fellow Sacramentans on social security, people with disabilities, veterans and other community members on fixed incomes–is now at risk. Many community residents and groups, including Sacramento Loaves & Fishes, Resources for Independent Living, Sacramento Area Congregations Together and the Sacramento County League of Women Voters have voiced concern alongside SHA about the removal of this landmark requirement, which would jeopardize affordable housing for our most vulnerable neighbors.  SHA has written an Open Letter to the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors stating its concerns, which can be viewed at http://www.sachousingalliance.org/open-letter-to-county-board-of-supervisors/.  We encourage you to sign on if you have not already.

Thank you to Assemblymembers Dickinson, Cooley and Pan for backing this important cause.
