CALE Endorses the “Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative”

Faced with difficulty gathering signatures during Covid, the statewide coalition pursuing the Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative has informed us they are refocusing to place the initiative on the California ballot in 2024.

Sacramento has gone too far, driving up land values and housing prices at the worst time in modern history. We support our allies who created the Our Neighborhood Voices InitiativeIf approved by California voters in 2024, it ensures that local zoning and local land-use is decided locally, not in Sacramento. It gives each city council the power to override state land-use and zoning laws by adopting approaches that actually serve local needs. (In the unincorporated areas, county boards of supervisors will be empowered to set local zoning and land-use law.)
