Affordable Housing

The Blue Line Coalition has adopted a six-point policy platform for the preservation and creation of affordable housing in the corridor:

  • Just-cause eviction
  • Tenant relocation assistance
  • Notification of sale and first right of purchase
  • Inclusionary housing
  • Affordable Housing Trust Fund
  • Affordable Housing Acquisition Fund

For more information, see our Housing Policy Platform or one-pager.

Equitable Development Principles Scorecard

The Blue Line Coalition is finalizing its Equitable Development Principles and Scorecard for the corridor. This document outlines BLC’s expectations for new development in its communities with the goal of securing community benefits and preventing involuntary displacement. The scorecard is a tool for the community, public agencies, and developer to use together to make development processes clearer and more consistent for all parties.

See the draft version of BLC’s Equitable Development Principles and Scorecard here.

BLC recently participated in a panel discussion about its use of the scorecard at a workshop titled, “Building Healthy Communities with Equitable Development Principles and Scorecard.” Part of the event was filmed and can be viewed online (Part 1 and Part 2).
