East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO), TransForm, and other allies have worked hard to urge Oakland's City Council to do the nexus study required for getting an affordable housing impact fee in Oakland. We've testified at public hearings, written letters, met with Councilmembers, and done public education in our communities to prepare for winning a housing impact fee. We've built incredible power, and it looks likely that City Council will pass an impact fee, but we still need to make sure that they pass the strongest fee possible - a fee dedicated to building affordable housing.
