State officials praised the City of Desert Hot Springs for “meaningful” progress on the City’s housing plans, in a press release distributed today.

 

The California Department of Housing and Community Development wrote in the press release that the City of Desert Hot Springs is “demonstrating progress” towards addressing the housing affordability crisis in California.

 

As the City of Desert Hot Springs reported, Mayor Scott Matas met with California Governor Gavin Newsom in February to discuss the housing crisis and the state’s Housing Element law.

 

 

Since then, the City has already begun planning for State-approved low-income housing.

 

“Strong local planning is key to building a California for All, and the progress thus far is encouraging,” said Department of Housing and Community Development Director Ben Metcalf.
