MEHC

In Marin, building affordable housing has become highly complex and difficult – in part due to growth and traffic concerns, environmental and infrastructure constraints, the set-aside of large areas for open space and agricultural protection, a post-Prop 13 inclination of governments to favor commercial development over housing, the desire of existing residential owners to maximize their property values, and the increase in residential land values.

MEHC makes connections between adversaries, aligns the goals of competing missions, and provides stronger support for elected officials who want to vote for environmentally friendly affordable housing but hesitate in fear of backlash. MEHC demonstrates that leaders in the environmental and affordable housing communities share vision and values and can collaborate to bring more environmentally friendly housing to Marin.

MEHC has brought leaders in the environmental and affordable housing communities together into an active, committed, task-oriented group. MEHC has demonstrated that environmental and affordable housing advocates can break out of the cycle of conflict.
