This morning, a coalition of labor groups, elected officials, housing advocates, public safety officials and business leaders from across the region convened today at the County of San Diego Waterfront Park to call on San Diegans to vote Yes on Measure B to choose the creation of housing and open space instead of massive shopping mall and luxury homes.
“Voting Yes on B will provide a community with affordably-priced homes that can be obtained for working families earning at or below 120 percent of the County’s Area Median Income. I ask that all San Diego County voters vote Yes on B because it is the better choice to help solve our housing crisis.” -Ricardo Flores, Executive Director of LISC San Diego
Currently, the San Diego County General Plan has designated 2 million square feet of office and commercial space and 99 luxury homes for this property located in North San Diego County. Instead, VOTING YES ON B PROVIDES A BETTER CHOICE: 2,135 homes, 60 percent of which are legally guaranteed to be affordably-priced for working families. In addition, 10 percent of the homes are affordable rental units for low income families in San Diego County.
