Citywide Anti-Displacement Strategy


Anti Displacement Strategy.jpg


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). The San José ADPN team members are:

  • Councilmember Magdalena Carrasco
  • Derecka Mehrens from Working Partnerships USA
  • Nadia Aziz from the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley
  • Shiloh Ballard from the Silicon Valley Bike Coalition and San Jose Planning Commission
  • Jacky Morales-Ferrand, Director of Housing
  • Rosalynn Hughey, Director of Planning, Building and Code Enforcement
  • Jeff Ruster, Office of Economic Development

Over the past year, the San José ADPN team has learned how other cities are working to prevent urban displacement. The focus is mostly on residential displacement, with some focus on small business displacement as well.

In summer and fall 2019, the San José 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 fall 2019.
