Two state housing bills, AB411 and SB330, are poised to impact Santa Cruz. AB411 would bring $16 million to the city to fund affordable housing projects. SB330 may foil the city council’s effort to prevent higher density on Soquel Avenue, Mission Street and Ocean Street. The two bills are on the governor’s desk. We break down what you need to know about these and other noteworthy state housing bills.
