When to Apply Sunscreen

You should apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before heading outside and remember to apply it to your next and ears because, these are the two areas that most people forget to apply sunscreen to.

Will California Supreme Court Ruling Mean More Affordable Housing In Pleasant Hill CA?

Pleasant Hill Business

By Pleasant Hill Times

On Monday our California Supreme Court rules unanimously that cities like Pleasant Hill CA now have the right for requiring developers to create affordable housing if they are building new multi-family rental units across the state.

Upholds 2010 State Law

Thanks to the Supreme Court’s ruling, developers will be required to continue following a 2010 state law which will require them to deem 15 percent of their units as affordable housing if they are building multi- family rentals which have up to 20 or more rentals.

Why This Is Important

If you’ve searched for rental property in Pleasant Hill CA, or across the East Bay in the last six months you know that it’s tough to find rentals which are affordable for individuals let alone families.

This ruling will hopefully light a fire under developers so more will be done to help renters.

Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said this about the ruling: “the ordinance falls within cities broad discretion to regulate the use of real property to serve the legitimate interests of the general public and the community at large.” Problems stemming from a scarcity of affordable housing “have reached what might be described as epic proportions in many of the state’s localities.”

Opposed By The building Industry

One of the chief opponents of this law is the building industry in California who went on record to say that this law is an “unconstitutional taking of property without just compensation”.

A Battle That’s Not Finished Yet

Although there are over 170 cities across California who have now adopted what can be considered to be similar laws, the reality is that this battle between the California Supreme Court and the building industry isn’t over yet since potentially hundreds of millions of dollars per year are at stake.

Controversial 4th of July?

Yes 4th of July in Pleasant Hill California is a good thing and a tradition not to be missed but because of the drought some Northern California cities including Cupertino are ending this tradition due to the 100,000 gallons of water needed to put out fireworks if they were to hit the ground.

Although some cities are saying no to fireworks this year the reality is that thanks to modern technology we’re seeing safer, more efficient fireworks shows than in years past and that’s a good thing, especially when the entire state is under water and one spark could be costly.
