This month, changes to California’s Surplus Land Act were made through AB 1486 to help ensure that unused public lands can be more efficiently transformed into affordable housing, parks, and open spaces that can serve our communities for generations. What are these new changes, and what will they mean for agencies and organizations working throughout the region to address our housing affordability crisis?
Join the Great Communities Collaborative and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Community Development Department as we dig into the Surplus Land Act and AB 1486 to answer this question. The discussion will bring together public officials, agency staff, policy and legal experts, and advocates to shine some light on how the Surplus Land Act and AB1486 can be implemented to expand the use of public land for public good. You’ll learn how agencies can be better prepared to implement this new law in service of expanding housing affordability in high opportunity areas.
