SDHF's Housing Development Law & Policy Seminar

This in-depth and informative training will focus on the legal tools and constraints to building housing in California.  The loss of California Redevelopment Law left cities and counties without many of the traditional tools to support development in their communities.  Recent federal and state court rulings are changing the legal context for determining how land use can be regulated. All the while jurisdictions continue to work to meet the mandate to implement the landmark greenhouse gas reduction bill, SB 375.

California State Assembly Reconvenes

After a month-long summer recess, the Assembly returned to Sacramento on Monday, August 5th.

For the first time in more than 50 years, however, the Senate is on a different schedule, returning next Monday, and that’s when the final month’s action really kicks into gear.

With a September 13th deadline to get bills to the governor (or have them turn into two-year bills), the Assembly has 20 policy committee hearings -- and a huge appropriations committee agenda -- next week.

A Developers Forum featuring Bill Pavao, CTAC Executive Director

In 2014, the CalGREEN building code will significantly increase efficiency requirements. Any project permitted after January 1st will have to be nearly TWICE as efficient as your current projects.

What will this mean for your projects in Pre-Development?

SCANPH and Promise Energy present an interactive forum with policymakers, TCAC, fellow developers, and energy experts on how your organization can be ready. If you plan on building projects in California next year, you’ll want to join us for this
important event!
