Inclusive Lafayette started this petition to Lafayette's City Council

FOR COMMUNITY MEMBERS OF LAFAYETTE, CA ONLY: 

Multi-family unit housing (i.e. apartments) is demonstrably better for the environment, economy, affordability, and community than other kinds of development. Lafayette, a town with a median income over $150,000 a year and a median home price over $1.5 MILLION, has very little multi-family unit housing. Coincidentally, we also have very little affordable housing! 

After almost a decade of deliberation, Lafayette's City Council will be deciding to either allow or prevent the construction of the Terraces of Lafayette, a 315-unit multi-family development that will have 20% affordable units. The discussion will start on AUGUST 10, 2020—just a few days from today! Anti-development interests, which have long been the most powerful group in Lafayette, have been organizing since 2011 to defeat this housing, so we must signal massive support quickly. 

Sign and share this petition to tell Lafayette's City Council that you support the Terraces of Lafayette and a diverse, inclusive town. 

If you want to learn more about how you can get involved in promoting affordable housing in Lafayette, join Inclusive Lafayette on Facebook or Instagram. The organization is dedicated to promoting higher-density, multi-family unit development in our town. If you don't support increasing affordable housing development in Lafayette, join anyway to learn about why it's great for the environment, schools, local economies, and so much more! The photo for this petition is part of the area planned for the Terraces of Lafayette development. Does that space look like it is being well used right now? 

This petition is exclusively for Lafayette community members, meaning residents and those involved with community resources (service providers like teachers or business owners, religious institution attendees, etc. who are not necessarily residents).
