Local 2007 Takes on the Bay Area Housing Crisis

SEIU L2007 Fights for Affordable Housing

What’s Happening?

The County of Santa Clara is currently in the process of determining how much Stanford should contribute for housing to mitigate Stanford’s impacts of development under the proposed General Use Permit. We have urged Stanford to build affordable housing on or near campus for service workers. We are working with the county, students, and affordable housing allies to push Stanford to commit to supporting its workforce by creating affordable housing. The county recently voted to direct staff to draft an ordinance with a proposed fee of $68.50 per square foot of academic development, but this number could go up or down depending on the level of community involvement.

Next Steps

There are several upcoming community and county meetings where your voice is critical to pushing Stanford to build affordable housing units. The next meeting to provide input through the Stanford Community Resource Group committee is:

June 14, at 7:00 pm. 1313 Newell Rd. Palo Alto, CA.
