Housing Mandates - High Density population is the friend of liberal politicians. When you look at voting patterns you will see drastic distinctions between rural, suburb and urban areas in voting. Not sure why that is the case, except there might be more dependence upon government in urban areas. Just my opinion.

The State wants to take local control from cities and counties in their quest to push their high density housing goals. These numbers are unrealistic, as San Ramon pointed out in their appeal, their method and calculations are flawed. Unfortunately, appealing the RHNA numbers is futile. Cities have to continue to plan for unrealistically high numbers of units which only frustrates and angers their communities, a vicious cycle.

I have a suggestion. The four cities should just withdraw their memberships from ABAG. Then ABAG will have no jurisdiction in the housing mandate.

Just dont comply. Everybody else seems to do whatever the hell they want regardless of the rules and regulations and this is going on across the country with our citizenry, businesses, government and even the President of the United States. Why bother with compliance?
