Mayor Sam Liccardo has a new idea for San Jose. He suggested cutting construction taxes in half on high-rise developments and moving more money into affordable housing.
According to KTVU “The workplan calls for the construction of 25,000 new homes by 2023. About 10,000 of those homes would be affordable units.”
The Mayor has said that high-rise development will be “Bleak” if a plan is not made soon.
There is a City Council meeting on March 19th at 1:30 p.m. in Council Chambers at 200 E. Santa Clara St. in San Jose.
