More Tools Available to Combat Housing Crisis with Measure I Approval


Humboldt County residents on Nov. 3, approved Measure I – Humboldt County’s Affordable Housing Initiative, and the election results were certified on Dec. 1. Humboldt County has not been immune to California’s housing crisis, the lack of supply and rising costs.  With the passage of Measure I, the county can now access previously unavailable state and federal money and help increase the supply of housing affordable to seniors, people with disabilities, working families and lower income residents.  

“We all recognize that housing in the county has become increasingly expensive, to the point that it is now out of reach for many low-income residents,” said 2nd District Supervisor and Chairwoman Estelle Fennell.  “Passage of Measure I gives the county an important new tool to help reverse this trend by taking a more active role in affordable housing development that will create a more balanced community with a variety of housing opportunities.  Importantly, Measure I does this without increasing taxes or sacrificing any health and safety standards or zoning requirements.”
