California – Over 100 current and former elected officials from across California have announced their support for the Our Neighborhood Voices ballot initiative, which will restore local planning input and the ability of residents to speak out about what is happening next door to their homes and apartments.

“We are organizing the Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative campaign to give local communities back their say in the future of their communities,” said initiative proponent Bill Brand, Mayor of Redondo Beach. Brand added “We are grateful for the support of these elected leaders, and we know it is just the beginning of the statewide, grassroots movement to restore our voice in local planning and development.”

The officials announcing their endorsement today, which includes former legislators as well as dozens of current and former Mayors, Councilmembers and other locally elected officials, add to the more than 2,000 community leaders who have signed on to support “Our Neighborhood Voices.”   

The list of officials is provided below, and the full list of endorsements is available online at https://OurNeighborhoodVoices.com.

The “Our Neighborhood Voices Initiative” will protect the ability of local communities to adopt laws that shape local growth, preserve the character of neighborhoods, and require developers to actually produce more affordable housing and contribute to the costs associated with new housing.

The initiative seeks to qualify for the November 2022 ballot, and is actively gathering signatures across the state.

The five proponents of the initiative include three locally elected officials, a former city planning commissioner and an affordable housing advocate. The group cuts across partisan lines, and represents a broad cross section of California’s diverse population.
