A ballot measure that would provide a greater variety of affordable housing options in Healdsburg is heading to voters this fall.

The City Council on July 18 voted to place the Healdsburg Housing Measure on the November ballot.

At numerous community outreach meetings over the past two years, Healdsburg residents have repeatedly requested changes to the city’s Growth Management Ordinance, or GMO, which was adopted in 2000.

The California Apartment Association supports the Healdsburg Housing Measure, which would help provide the city with a greater variety of housing, such as multi-family rental units, small-lot and higher-density projects. This would boost the availability of housing affordable to middle-income and working families.
