Affordable Housing and Labor Standards Related to City Planning
Passed by the voters on November 7, 2016, Measure JJJ provides that development projects with 10 or more residential units may only receive general plan amendments or certain zoning changes if the project (a) includes a component of affordable housing or the Developer pays in-lieu fees into the City’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund, and (b) complies with Labor Standards regarding using licensed contractors, paying prevailing wages and hiring workers from local and disadvantaged areas and state-approved – and in the case of a project which receives federal funds – federally-approved Apprenticeship Programs. Administrative responsibilities for the Labor Standards required by the Measure are placed on the Department of Public Works, Bureau of Contract Administration (BCA). These Labor Standards include both the monitoring and enforcement of the payment of prevailing wages by contractors working on any residential housing projects created under the measure, as well as the employment of Apprentices and a 30% Local Hire and 10% Transitional Hire requirement on said projects.
