Huntington Beach Sued While
Marin County Exempted from Affordable Housing Requirements
Did Govs Brown and Newsom play favorites over affordable housing laws?
“While Gov. Gavin Newsom has sued the Orange County city of Huntington Beach for failing to provide enough additional ‘affordable housing,’ his own home county of Marin is enjoying a moratorium on affordable housing building requirements until 2028.”

“…over 95 percent of California is undeveloped and unoccupied.
Why would state regulators go to war with some cities
over home construction but not others? Why would the
state impose housing higher densities on cities at all —
given that so much of the state is unoccupied?”

Housing plans in Oceanside
spark community debate about state and local policies
“We make important decisions and we need to be held accountable for them. … When I have the discretion to make a decision, I obviously take ownership of it whether I’m right or wrong. But the fact that we don’t have that discretion anymore is extremely frustrating.”

More discussion at Wake Up Oceanside
How do residents of Oceanside feel about developers tearing down Regal Cinemas? Will the theater be replaced with apartments due to state mandates for more housing?
Are high rise apartments mostly rentals rather than home ownership? Does this rental income mostly benefit large corporations?
What about the strain on water and energy and schools and transportation and pollution and other infrastructure? Is the state of California allowing developers to build without paying for the infrastructure cost? Is California mandating policies for which local communities are expected to pay the bill?
Is there no requirement for developers to even build affordable housing?
Can California legislators save us from this? Or maybe a people’s referendum?
Does centralized state control keep local citizens from having a say in their communities?
And did SANDAG punt mileage tax and toll roads decisions to the California Air Resources Board? Can SANDAG now say that any mileage tax is out of their control?
The California conundrum
Fewer people, more homes,
but an acute housing shortage
Los Angeles Times
Between January 2020 and January 2023
did the population of California
decrease by 709,000
while the number of housing units
increased by 378,000?
If the population is going down and there is more housing available… shouldn’t home prices be going down?
Are large corporations buying up homes and bidding up prices? Are they outbidding potential residents? Does that explain the increase in home prices? So, will building more homes actually even make prices more affordable?

“This is so simple at the root. The central bankers are using the government to shut down the main street economy, and then they are going direct and injecting money into the private equity firms and Wall Street who are running around the country buying things. Think of this as a leverage buyout of the world. We are being purchased with our own money.
Also, we are liable. If you look at all the debt the government is issuing, our assets are liable for that debt. This is a continuation and consolidation of the financial coup that we have been taking about.”

The Federal Reserve gave rich entities low interest money? This money could be used to buy up assets like homes? The average would-be homeowner can’t compete in that kind of a rigged market.
Then cities get mandated into demolishing existing businesses and homes so they can be replaced with easily controlled and surveilled 15-minute cities? Argh…

the Cabal’s Land and Real Estate Stealing Tactics
Due Diligence and Art
Catherine and Sasha discuss the tanking of San Francisco. Is this a planned demolition for the purpose of buying up SF cheap and replacing it with 15-minute cities?
San Franciso is a city that is basically wall-to-wall housing. So, where does California expect San Francisco to put 10,000 new homes each year? There really isn’t any open land left upon which to build. So, San Francisco would have to steal existing owner-owned homes to replace them with huge monstrosities owned by rich investors? The rich get richer? And, San Francisco has to pay for the infrastructure to support all of that expansion? This is looneyville.
