This is a heavy lift. There is a lot to do in a short period of time:
1) Please get the word out. This impacts ALL Californians. Tell as many of your family, friends and neighbors, etc. as possible. Have them tell as many Californians as they can, and so forth.
2) We're up against special interests with deep pockets. Contribute what you can afford. It is estimated that at least $2M is needed to increase the likelihood of success.
Also, please consider donating your time. Support will be needed to gather signatures and educate the public.
3) This state constitutional amendment would allow cities to refuse to adopt state bills SB 9 & SB 10 and any other zoning and land use bills. However, we are up against special interests with deep pockets. Do what you can.
The group has 180 days to collect approximately 1.4 million signatures to get on the ballot for Nov. 2022 election. They anticipate this will cost $10 million.
On the question of how this amendment would affect existing state zoning laws, we understand that the state constitutional amendment would undo any preexisting state land use and zoning laws and that they would become null and void.
Our Neighborhood Voices aligns with the following NFABSD's positions:
California has a shortage of affordable housing, which must be addressed directly and at the local level
Zoning/land use laws coming out of Sacramento will incentivize developers to build market-rate housing
Trickle-down housing does not work and won't produce affordable housing
Zoning/land use laws coming out of Sacramento will destroy single-family neighborhoods and remove wealth-building opportunities associated with home ownership.
Neighbors for A Better San Diego is supportive of this initiative. We ask that you read the Our Neighborhood Voices ballot initiative website and join us.
