East Palo Alto Reconvenes Anti-Displacement, Second Unit Task Force


The Task Force met again in July to collaborate with City staff in continuing to identify sensitive solutions to habitability issues in unpermitted second units. Get Healthy SMC is excited to continue this partnership with the City, which has been a local leader in thinking about habitability without displacement.  The City has made much progress in addressing key issues identified by the Task Force over a year ago like enhancing relocation benefits for displaced tenants and working closely with homeowners that need support to address code violations. In the coming months, the City will explore different policies related to ADU. On September 3 at 6:30pm, the City Council will be discussing impact fees on second units. The meeting will take place at 2415 University Ave, First Floor – City Council Chamber East Palo Alto, CA 94303. The Task Force is aiming to have final recommendations for the Council by the end of this year. Stay tuned!
