Make it easier to build housing for military families.
San Diego is a military city. A significant portion of people either work in the military or work in jobs related to defense industry.
It’s no surprise that there’s a lot of military families coming into San Diego every year. Given the housing prices, it should also be no surprise that military families choose to leave San Diego after the service member separates from the military. We’re losing vital members of our community.
I’m proposing that if a housing developer chooses to build urban housing exclusively for military families that we make the process a lot easier.
If a housing developer builds infill mixed-use developments near transit that rent exclusively to military families, they should be automatically approved. Community planning groups will be informed of the developments, but they will not get to block housing development for military families.
