SDCAA attended the meeting and expressed concerns with the draft ordinance that was presented and asked that the issue be vetted more by stakeholders on all sides. The draft ordinance was just a starting point and the committee did not take a vote on the proposed language. The committee requested that the City Attorney’s office work with Councilmember Emerald’s staff and other city departments, such as Development Services and the Independent Budget Analyst, to draft an ordinance and bring that back in 90 days. SDCAA has already scheduled a meeting with staff from Councilmember Emerald’s office and a few SDCAA members who operate mini-dorms to share input. SDCAA acknowledges that this type of housing does present challenges, but believes that by working with members who run their properties well and in compliance with existing law, many of the community’s concerns can be addressed. SDCAA also is committed to working with the community to address the need for additional housing near San Diego State University.
