Posted on 01/25/2019 1:16:14 PM PST by RedMonqey
California is suing one of its own cities for not allowing the construction of enough affordable places to live, signaling an aggressive approach to the states housing crisis by the new governor, Gavin Newsom.
Huntington Beach, an upscale coastal city outside Los Angeles,

Huntington Beach is NOT a sanctuary city, btw/
How ‘bout Gav sue his own town of Kentfield (median home price $2.2 million)? Bet lots of folks would love an affordable place there... maybe next door to Chateau Newsom?
If you build ‘affordable housing’ in high value neighborhoods, you bring down the value of those houses and lose your tax base to people who can’t pay taxes...............
I hear the continued sound of California swirling further down the toilet.....
The Rats are eating their own.
Who was it that said; “When your enemy is in the process of destroying themselves - leave them alone.”?
Thatll fix it!
Beverly Hills is right next door, why no lawsuit there?
You heard of gentrification?
This is slumification... Because that’s what Rats do.

When does Newsome sue Beverly Hills?
Probably targeting Congressional districts they want to pack with more welfare Democrats, to take over.
The rich liberals can embrace the suck.
Newsome gets too much money form Malibu
Gavin just bought a three million dollar house in Sacramento, too.
Betcha there’s no low-income housing in that neighborhood, either.
It’s not about revenue. It’s about diversification. You are 100% on the mark though. California has other ways by which it could make housing more affordable if that was really the goal.
The problem (in California, the US and the world) is too damned many people.
by a factor of several hundred times.
Let the market decide, let the low-lifes go somewhere else.
we need a good plague and a world population of a few hundred million tops. 2 million is too many for California.
If they merely ended zoning, the way Houston and a number of other cities never had it, affordable housing would zoom with none of the complicated, sweetheart deal mandates the legislature keeps on dreaming up. No need for government subsidies and waiting lists or lottery drawings for affordable housing. Of course, wealthy liberals would be up in arms about apartment complexes suddenly popping up next door. Liberals love poor people, provided that they’re located far, far away.
“How bout Gav sue his own town of Kentfield (median home price $2.2 million)?”
In a rational and logical world, you’d be correct. But many many liberals (especially the more well-off ones like Newsom) are NIMBY’s.
Like Rosie O’Donnell who rails against gun ownership - but has one herself for protection.
Or people in a certain tony section of Minneapolis who are all in favor of light rail - until a line is considered near their residences?
Or public policy activists who rail against big money in politics - unless, of course, that big money is from labor unions and leftist billionaires like Bloomberg and Steyer?
Or Nancy Pelosi who has a wall surrounding her home for protection - but refuses to allow a wall on the border for the rest of ours protection?
I despise liberals because I feel they are the ultimate hypocrites. For them, it always “Do As I Say, Not As I Do”.
All they would have to do is set aside some unused city property and haul in a couple dozen pre-manufactured modular homes and set them up. It would be cheap and quick..............
