AB 2896: Congregate Housing (2002)


AB 2896 (2002) would have provided cities and counties with additional flexibility and incentives to meet the challenge of the State’s housing crisis. The bill would have cities and counties to include “congregate” housing when establishing compliance with State mandated housing goals.

Congregate housing provides individual living areas with shared dining facilities, and is a common choice for both seniors and university students. In a State particularly hard hit by the high cost of housing, congregate housing offers a somewhat more affordable alternative for many.
