On June 12, 2018, the San José City Council adopted its Housing Crisis Response Workplan. The goal of this Workplan is to build 10,000 affordable and 15,000 market-rate homes in five years. As part of that Workplan, the City Council directed the Housing Department to write a Citywide Anti-Displacement Strategy. That same year, a public/private team from San José was selected to participate in PolicyLink’s 10-city All-in Cities Anti-Displacement Policy Network (ADPN).
In summer and fall 2019, the San Jose team is organizing a series of stakeholder and public meetings. City staff will bring forward a Citywide Anti-Displacement Strategy for the City Council's consideration in winter 2019-2020.
The Housing Department is scheduling several upcoming community engagement meetings with developers, property owners, and other real estate professionals regarding displacement in October and November. If you are interested in attending one of these meetings, please check this website for updates or call Jacklyn Joanino at 408-794-7472.
San José Resident Survey
Do you live in San José, or have you lived in San José within the last 10 years? We would like to hear from you.
The City has heard from the community that many long-time San José residents are being displaced and moving out of San Jose. Your input and experience can help inform the Citywide Anti-Displacement Strategy to reduce, prevent, and mitigate displacement. Responses to this survey will help staff better understand how the community has been affected by displacement and identify potential trends.
