This is not what I signed up for nor what I believe in.

Yes, I've been in the affordable housing arena for over 3 decades and have worked with thousands of seniors and entry level homeowners that are looking for lower cost living solutions. One of those is to assist people who have the appropriate size lots to put an Accessory Dwelling Unit on their property.

But just for the record what you see in this link is not what I stand for in any way, shape or form. This is pushing the envelope beyond the pale and is the beginning of the end for our neighborhoods and our quality of life.

I do believe that property/homeowners have the right to create an additional living space on the earth they own beneath their feet. There has been a paradigm shift in the way we choose to live out our lives. Many Baby Boomers now wish to age in place on the property they raised their children on. Or they may need to provide a living space for a family member. Or they may just want to create an additional revenue stream to enhance their income.

All of these options are legitimate and every property/homeowner should have the right to do this. However, what you see in the video takes it to a whole new level. But even more disturbing, it takes our rights as homeowners and citizens in our own community away and gives it to the State bureaucrats, hedge funders and high density developers.

We must maintain the integrity of our neighborhoods and communities. If we don't wake up and smell the roses on this you will see your neighborhoods change dramatically in the not to distant future. Please do not allow this to happen in your neighborhood. I encourage you to share this link with everyone you know anywhere in America before it's too late. California is just the tip of the iceberg. As we all know most trends start on the West Coast and work their way across the Country.

Hi John Henry, Florida Architect - Thanks so much for sharing this video.  It is an eye-opener but something I would expect from California.  I will share this on my social media.  I have many friends and relatives who live in CA and may not know what is going on right in front of them.

Scary. And they wonder why so many people are leaving California. It seems to me that politicians never think very clearly - and they never look at the consequences of their decisions.

For every action, there is an opposite and equal reaction. Politicians rarely understand the ramifications of their decisions.

Unbelievable.  This isn't just going to be a California problem either.  This is going to be an everywhere problem.

Hmm.  We can all agree that more affordable housing is needed, but along with development comes the infrstructure to make it work.  Small towns become big towns, and they become cities.  Density increases and that's called progress.  If we didn't build multi family housing a long time ago we'd all still be living in caves or huts... but in a normal society, we can flush our toilets and turn on the lights and things function.  It will get worse before it gets better...

Myrl Jeffcoat Spot on! It's also one way to meet the arduous RHEA demands that we are faced with and the fact that San Diego as well as many other parts of Cali are getting built out to the point where it's increasingly more difficult to find affordable and developable land.

Kathy Streib Our politicians are too consumed with their self importance and thinking they have to always be writing laws to earn their keep as public servants. Problem is they're not always looking out for the good of their consitiuents.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® Do spread the word; especially in Cali. The more folks that know about it the faster the better is very important. These guys want to try and pull a fast one on what they think are a bunch of sleeping little lambs.

Marte Cliff I used to beat the same drum about the folks leaving Cali. Only problem is they're being replace by wealthy offshore investors who don't seem to mind paying for crazy high properties. Add to that all the illegals coming in that will have to be fed, housed and educated and we're definitely destined for a two caste system.

Carol Williams Sadly our whole political system is growing more self serving and less concerned about their constituents nowadays. Pretty sad.

Chris Ann Cleland Spot on. What starts in Cali usually works its way across the Country. Look for this type of governing coming to a town near you.
