In a first-of-its-kind step, the state has filed a suit against its city, Huntington Beach, for “willfully refusing to comply with state housing law, even after extensive attempts to offer partnership and support from California Department of Housing and Community Development.”Approving this action, Gov. Gavin Newsom said that the Attorney General had filed the suit against the City of Huntington Beach on Friday. “The state doesn’t take this action lightly,” Newsom said. “The huge housing costs and sky-high rents are eroding the quality of life for families across the state. California’s housing crisis is an existential threat to our state’s future and demands an urgent and comprehensive response.”The problem with the City of Huntington Beach began in 2016 when the city’s residents disapproved a proposal to amend the housing plan to add more affordable housing. Since then the city has fallen short of its required quota for affordable housing by 400 units.California cities and counties are required by law to draft and adopt a housing plan that meets the needs of the broader region and its economy. Under this law, the city’s housing plan must accommodate a fair share of the regional housing needs and provide zoning that encourages the development of housing that is affordable to the city’s residents across all income levels, including affordable housing and middle-income housing.Though Huntington Beach had complied with this law in 2013, the Governor’s office said that the city had amended their housing plan by 2015 and significantly reduced the number of new housing units being built. It had also rejected a proposal by the Department of Housing and Community Development to build additional units.“Cities and counties are important partners in addressing this housing crisis, and many cities are making herculean efforts to meet this crisis head-on,” Newsom said. “But some cities are refusing to do their part to address this crisis and willfully stand in violation of California law. Those cities will be held to account.”Simply Not Enough Housing?The steps being taken by the state government may just be what California needs to tackle its affordable housing crisis.In his first budget, after being elected in 2018, Gov. Newsom allocated $500 million for incentives for cities that allow for new housing production and $250 million to provide technical assistance for cities to responsibly ramp up zoning and permitting processes. The Governor’s budget also includes another $1 billion in other funding for housing construction.According to a commentary in the Voice of San Diego by Brendan Dentino, co-Chair of the YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County Policy Committee and a housing policy consultant, and Maya Rosas, Founding President of the YIMBY Democrats of San Diego County and an urban planner, advocates are building more homes in more neighborhoods to combat the housing affordability crisis in the Golden State. They said that in the last few years, elected officials have also begun to take action to mitigate this crisis.  However, despite the “positive legislative and electoral developments,” Dentino and Rosas said that merely to satisfy the current household growth in California, the state needed to build 1.8 million dwelling units.A recent article in Forbes by Ingo Winzer, President, Local Market Monitor, revealed that while some markets in California had seen a more stable housing growth, certain California markets, especially those like San Francisco, Anaheim, Riverside-San Bernardino, Oakland, San Jose, and Los Angeles had seen home prices that were 25 percent or more above the income price (a calculated price closely tied to local income).  “The reason these markets are so over-priced, of course, is that the local economies have created demand for housing much faster than builders can produce new supply,” Winzer wrote, while cautioning investors that while they could still find opportunity in these markets, they needed to carefully check for the risks.last_img read more

first_img Hate Crime,  Remarks,  The Blog,  Videos ‘Stand Against Hate’ GatheringPhiladelphia, PATRANSCRIPT:The acts of hatred aimed at the Jewish community this week were acts of hatred aimed at us all.The desecration of the Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia was an act of desecration all of our core values.The threats against JCCs across PA were threats against our common humanity.These acts of hatred are wrong, and they have no place in Pennsylvania, or in the United States.I am calling on the United States Department of Justice to investigate these cowardly actions for what they truly are – hate crimes against the Jewish community and everyone in Pennsylvania.And I have directed the Pennsylvania State Police and the Pennsylvania Department of Homeland Security to work hand in hand with our partners in local law enforcement to help find those responsible for these actions.The vandalism and bomb threats aimed at the Pennsylvania Jewish community these past few days are reprehensible, and will fail in their attempts to instill fear.We are all here today to take a stand against these vile actions, and to say to those responsible that this kind of hatred and intimidation will not be tolerated in this Commonwealth.I am proud to see so many members of different faiths here to show that no one should be afraid, because as Pennsylvanians we stand together against acts like these.Pennsylvania is a place founded centuries ago on the idea that all are welcome, and can practice their faith and culture as they see fit.And we still live by that grand idea today, because ours is an open and welcoming state.We live by that idea not only because it is right to do so – it is – but also because its smart.We want to continue the rich tradition of openness and inclusiveness, so that when people are choosing where to go to school, where to begin their professional lives, where to start their business, or where to raise their family, they know that Pennsylvania is open to them.Actions like the ones we have seen recently present the opposite picture of Pennsylvania – and paint us as a place that is closed off and small minded.That is not what Pennsylvania is.Instead, PA is a Jewish day school hosting a Martin Luther King Day of Service to benefit their local community in Pittsburgh; it is the Jewish Federation of Philadelphia collecting food to donate to the hungry; it’s the Muslim community and labor leaders raising funds to rebuild the vandalized cemetery – it’s people reaching across lines of religious faith and cultural heritage to help one another – that is what Pennsylvania is.Pennsylvania is a place where we come together to accept and support each other.So these senseless acts are not what Pennsylvania is.Hatred has no place in this Commonwealth – any time – any where.Thank you.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf March 03, 2017 Remarks by Governor Wolf at ‘Stand Against Hate’ Gathering in Philadelphiacenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_imgDarius Kelly is a defensive back.It’s where he played throughout his first two years at Pima (Arizona) Community College. It’s what he’s listed as on Syracuse’s roster. And it’s where he lines up in practice and games when the Orange is in its base 4-3 set.But when SU forces opponents into a third-and-long passing situation, Kelly has to be a little more than that.“I’m basically that extra linebacker and safety,” Kelly said. “I wouldn’t say it’s difficult, I would just say it’s a different look.”Kelly plays the “star” position in the Okie package, which features three linebackers behind the defensive line, two cornerbacks on the edges and three safeties in the secondary. Syracuse’s defense implements the Okie in late-down passing situations and Kelly is the 11th man whose spot isn’t defined. Kelly can line up on either side of the line of scrimmage — sometimes he blitzes and sometimes he’s in coverage.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt’s his versatility at the star and vocality that helped Syracuse (3-6, 1-4 Atlantic Coast) limit North Carolina State to just 4-of-16 conversions on third down in a loss last week. When No. 22 Duke (7-1, 3-1), which averages nearly 36 points per game, visits the Carrier Dome on Saturday, it’ll be crucial for the Orange defense to put up similar numbers on third down.“We just take pride in that Okie package,” Kelly said. “We come on the field, money down, money down, we’re trying to come off the field. Get off the field right away. Make the play get off the field on third down.”SU defensive coordinator Chuck Bullough approached Kelly about taking over the star position last year, and it took Kelly a summer of studying the playbook to get a better grasp of the role.Kelly said Bullough saw his versatility, ability to make tackles, cover a slot receiver and beat the blockers on a blitz, which allowed him to take over the specialty position.“He’s done a great, great job,” Bullough said. “He has to learn safety, has to learn (the star), he’s done well, really, really well.”Kelly gets a chance to utilize his abilities in the Okie on third down and pass-only situations. It’s supposed to confuse the quarterback who won’t know where the pressure is coming from, with the star usually lining up in the slot and either breaking into coverage or shooting a gap at the line.The offense will have trouble knowing where its protection should slide. After facing a four-down front for most of the game, Kelly said opponents have trouble protecting a three on the line and the linebackers that SU regularly brings when it blitzes from the Okie.“If it’s third and long, you know what they’re gonna do, it’s a passing down,” SU cornerback Julian Whigham said. “You know they only have a certain amount of time to get the ball out when we bring a certain pressure. I think we do a great job of that.”Whigham is a part of the package, along with safeties Ritchy Desir, Durell Eskridge and cornerback Brandon Reddish in the secondary. When the team is in its 4-3 set, Kelly and Desir rotate before Kelly takes on his role in the Okie.Kelly isn’t just the wildcard in the secondary. He’s also one of its leaders. Whigham said he’s fiery and a “loud guy” on a unit full of players that don’t speak up as much.Whigham referenced a play on the goal line during SU’s loss to the Wolfpack, where Kelly jumped into a pile and an opposing lineman “messed with his leg.” Kelly immediately got up and pleaded with the referee to throw a flag.“You didn’t see that call,” Whigham recalled Kelly yelling to the ref. “You didn’t see that, man. Come on, man. What’s going on with you?”After not getting the call, Kelly turned to his unit and fired them up for the next play. It’s that personality, Whigham says, that brings the group up when it’s needed. It’s just another way, aside from his role in the Okie, that goes beyond his listed position as a defensive back.“He’s a vocal leader, a very strong leader,” Whigham said. “He knows where he needs to be, is a smart guy. And does what he’s supposed to do just about every play.“I think every group needs a Darius Kelly.”Sports Editor Jesse Dougherty, [email protected], contributed reporting to this article.

Only Newcastle (10) have lost more on the road.When the teams met at Carrow Road in October, Leicester moved up to fourth in the Premier League with a narrow victory, taking the lead through Jamie Vardy’s penalty.
