Housing, Land Use & Transportation

Overview

Housing, Land Use & Transportation

The CSAC Housing, Land Use and Transportation Committee reviews state budget items, ballot resolutions and state/federal legislative proposals in these three important interrelated areas. Major areas of policy development and review include, transportation/infrastructure planning and funding, public works contract administration, general plan/planning procedures (e.g., water planning, etc.), growth strategies and regional government decision-making proposals, housing policies, airport land use commissions, authority of state agencies (e.g., Office of Planning and Research, CalTrans, and Housing and Community Development) and federal transportation programs. In addition, Native American issues were recently placed under the purview of this committee, which includes policy development related to Indian Gaming, protection of sacred sites and other collaborative opportunities for government-to-government relations between counties and tribal governments.

Overview

CSAC Joint Homelessness Task Force

Homelessness impacts all 58 counties in California – rural or urban, northern or southern, inland or coastal. It impacts individuals and families of every background.  The causes of homelessness can be traced to a variety of problems including loss of employment, lack of affordable housing, drug and alcohol abuse, and physical and mental illness. There is no one solution to this growing problem.
