Taking Steps Towards Solving California’s Housing Crisis

It is no small secret that California has been suffering an extended and increasing housing shortage for the last several decades. Bringing an end of this crisis involves the coordination of numerous public agencies and private organizations, and it begins with a plan. RRM’s Community and Urban Design group is proud to share news of the adoption of several new city-wide housing-related documents, all of which play a crucial part in the process of building sufficient housing across California.

RRM’s Community and Urban Design Group is happy to share that six out of six city planning documents in recent months have successfully been adopted by their respective city councils. Why is this big news? Because this is how more housing in California is planned for and built.
