Regional Housing Policy

The Tri-Valley cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and the Town of Danville (also described as the “Tri-Valley Cities”) value regional leadership and collaboration and recognize the challenge of providing adequate and affordable housing opportunities in the region. Recent efforts at the regional level and by State legislators have brought these challenges and the resultant policy implications for the Tri-Valley into sharper focus. 

There is a unique opportunity for the Tri-Valley Cities to work together, to develop a collaborative response to influence legislative efforts at the State towards outcomes that address housing needs, while respecting community character and desire for local decision making.
