Affordable Housing Wire

Today the California Supreme Court ruled that cities and counties can legally require developers to include below-market-rate housing in their projects, as a condition of receiving a building permit. The ruling came after the California Building Industry Association challenged an affordable-housing ordinance San Jose passed five years ago. Developers argued that the requirement amounted to an unconstitutional seizure of private property, but the court wasn't buying it. [LAT]
