Mayor Bailey Rallies Coronado to Oppose 1,000 New Housing Units

Coronado Mayor Richard Bailey is encouraging residents to sign a petition that he will take to the SANDAG Board of Directors opposing a proposal to add over 1,000 new housing units to the City of Coronado.

One Size Does Not Fit All

Mayor Bailey said in a statement, “The current methodology is a perfect example of how out of touch Sacramento is with the rest of California. This one-size-fits-all approach fails to account for the unique characteristics of each community and does not even consider that some cities, like Coronado, have already done more than our fair share to meet the housing needs of our region.”

Bailey went on to say, “Sacramento is looking to the cities to bail them out of a housing problem that they are largely responsible for.”

In a letter to SANDAG, Mayor Bailey pointed out that the current methodology forces Coronado to build additional housing units for sailors that are on aircraft carriers deployed on the other side of the world, even if those sailors claim residency in another state. “This simply defies common sense. If the goal is more affordable housing, this will fail miserably while destroying a town.”

Coronado Needs Residents to Act Now

SANDAG indicates they have received over 115 letters and emails from Coronado residents protesting the flawed RHNA Methodology. There is still time to send in comments, but you must act quickly as the SANDAG meeting is on September 6.

To see Mayor Bailey’s letter, Objection to Proposed 1000+ Units for Coronado, and easily sign the petition online, CLICK HERE. The deadline is Wednesday, September 4th for letters to arrive at SANDAG if you choose to write your own letter.

The Mayor and City Council cannot do this alone. The SANDAG Board and Sacramento need to hear from Coronado residents as well.
