Excess state land: development of affordable housing.


Existing law establishes the Department of General Services (DGS) in the Government Operations Agency for purposes of, among other things, planning, acquiring, constructing, and maintaining state buildings and property. Under existing law, by executive order, the DGS was required to, among other things, create a digitized inventory of all excess state land, create screening tools for prioritizing affordable housing development on excess state land, and issue requests for proposals for and select affordable housing developments on excess state land, as described. Specifically, Executive Order No. N-06-19 required the DGS to create a digitized inventory of excess state land no later than April 30, 2019, and required the DGS, the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) , and the California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA) to collaborate to develop 2 new screening tools for prioritizing affordable housing development on excess state land no later than March 29, 2019. Existing law requires the DGS to develop, in consultation with the HCD, no later than September 1, 2023, a set of criteria to consistently evaluate state-owned parcels for suitability as affordable housing sites. Existing law requires the department, on or before January 1, 2024, to update the digitized inventory created pursuant to the above-described executive order with all excess state land suitable for affordable housing identified, as specified. The bill would require the DGS to verify a sample of the digitized inventory at least once every 4 years to ensure that digitized inventory is accurate.
