Solana Beach creates housing authority

Amid recent issues revolving around a shortage of affordable housing in Solana Beach and state mandates to build more affordable homes, the Solana Beach City Council on Aug. 24 voted unanimously to form a housing authority in the city.

The matter was brought to the table by City Attorney Johanna Canlas, who said Solana Beach needs a housing authority to be up to speed with other cities and comply with what the state suggests as good practice in making sure adequate affordable housing is provided.

The members of the council will serve as housing authority commissioners, and they will present Solana Beach Housing Authority bylaws at a future council meeting.

    In my experience, the last person you want dealing with this, if you want a productive, positive, efficient solution to the problem is City attorney Johanna Canlas. It was my impression she is not too bright when it comes to simple logic, and thinks that a sneer and a bad attitude are a substitute for intelligence.
