Topic: Housing Legislation re: Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)


Main Points:

  1. Commend ADUs as a suitable local solution to a local housing dilemma; best implemented via local City Councils, not the top-down, one-size-fits-all mandates of state legislators.
  2. Challenge the narrative of a housing crisis, and center the issue around affordability.
  3. Raise the question, "Who benefits from the state legislation usurping local control? (and given a chance, oppose the Regional Housing Finance Agency)
  4. Describe how the financialization of housing undercuts the value of ADUs as a local solution and destabilizes the middle class and democracy.
