No earlier than 5:30 p.m., the Board will conduct an informational workshop regarding the Assessment of Fair Housing Work Plan to identify barriers to fair housing choice. A legacy of discriminatory housing policies has created wealth disparity and racial segregation in Marin communities. Since initiating the County's Assessment of Fair Housing in fall 2016, more than 1,400 Marin residents -- most from communities impacted the most by the barriers -- have been engaged by staff from the Community Development Agency. Many volunteers have joined a County-initiated committee and worked on possible recommended solutions to housing inequities. Recommendations addressed in this Board update reflect the work completed to date on the first phase of community engagement. Staff requests that the Board consider the recommendations and provide direction to staff as it prepares an updated work plan for fall 2018. The Board does not take formal votes during informational workshops.
The Board conducted the informational workshop and accepted a presentation from the Community Development Agency. Without voting, the Board members expressed interest in scheduling another workshop to gather public feedback about a possible just cause for eviction ordinance.
