City continues to work toward affordable housing project here

The city of Half Moon Bay, like many other jurisdictions, continues to struggle to facilitate an affordable housing development. Problems include costs associated with attracting a project and the policies around affordable housing. 

It’s a familiar scenario across San Mateo County as reductions in federal and state funding have reduced investment in affordable housing by more than $31 million, or 78 percent, annually since 2008, according to the California Housing Partnership.
