Ericka Erickson, Marinwood Mom, Housing Advocate, and recently appointed Planning Commissioner will be submitting her recommendations for the Housing Element SEIR (Environmental Impact Report) for Unincorporated Marin and the Housing Element that puts 70% of all affordable housing for unincorporated Marin in Marinwood-Lucas Valley on July 8th.
In her professional life she is a housing advocate and community organizer with Marin Grassroots (www.maringrassroots.org) where she is an advocate for "social equity" In the above clip, she argues for the inclusion of the Los Ranchitos affordable housing site in a single family neighborhood because single family home zoning is a "tool for segregation".
We have no idea what data she uses to support this assertion but clearly zoning policy is being established on these ideological grounds. So essentially, if multifamily homes have a right to be anywhere,then single family neighborhoods will become illegal in Marinwood-Lucas Valley.
This is another good reason that you must speak out against the Housing Element.
|The Apartment building next door to you? Planners advocate placing multifamily homes in single family neighborhoods to "combat racism". Essentially this outlaws single family neighborhoods in favor of multiunit dwellings. Radical proposals like these have been implemented in Seattle over the outrage of the community. http://www.onehomeperlot.com/|
It doesn't sound like a "planning exercise" to me. These housing advocates are demanding immediate implementation of the Housing Element to build in our neighborhoods
Here is the petition being solicited by www.maringrassroots.org
