SAN FRANCISCO (Aug. 25, 2016)—In a letter to U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro today, City Attorney Dennis Herrera urged the federal housing agency to reconsider its rejection of San Francisco’s Affirmative Fair Housing Marketing Plan.  The local policy intended for the Willie B. Kennedy Apartments in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood seeks to protect existing communities from displacement in the midst of spiraling housing costs.

Herrera’s letter called HUD’s decision to disapprove the City’s plan “wrong as a matter of law and public policy for several reasons,” outlining several bases upon which HUD could rely to reverse its decision.
