Maria and Jeff Kalban with United Neighbors presented in a teleconference with Livable California on Saturday Feb 20, 2021.

United Neighbors is a coalition of neighborhood residential groups. Their common goal is to protect single-family neighborhoods while supporting affordable and equitable housing for all. They believe the rights of all residents of single-family homes and the rights of people needing affordable housing are bound together, and the solution to our affordable housing crisis requires thoughtful, effective, and rapid-acting legislation.

Their goals include:

  • Preserve single-family neighborhoods
  • Protect open spaces and environments
  • Ensure local control so housing is built in appropriate areas with adequate infrastructure
  • Create housing in commercial areas and on publicly owned land

We highly recommend all neighborhood and homeowner groups join United Neighbors HERE.
