In San Jose, California, city leaders are proposing a housing plan that would allow developers to build affordable housing alongside places of assembly, such as churches, private clubs, lodges, and theaters. These places often have excess land, like grass fields or parking lots, and the city estimates between 300 to 500 affordable homes could be constructed if the plan is approved. A San Jose megachurch, Cathedral of Faith, is already working to develop a two-building project that will offer 258 affordable units for low-income families and seniors. These efforts will help meet the city’s goal of building 25,000 homes, including 10,000 affordable units, by 2023.
