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.

    I am a disabled vietnam-era veteran who was the last 2 years residing in a transitional housing complex for homeless veterans. I was just granted a Choice Voucher for housing for myself, wife, and 12 year old daughter. The voucher is for Solana Beach and Del Mar, for a maximum of $1,387.00 per month for a two-bedroom apartment. I am having diffficulty finding a 2bd in the aforementioned two cities. Could the Solano Beach and Del Mar Housing Authorities assist me in finding rentals? If so, please direct me to whom can help. Thank You,
