On a panel hosted by the nonprofit Marin Housing Solutions last year, Megan Kirkeby, the California Department of Housing and Community Development’s deputy director for Housing Policy Development, noted that in the last eight year housing cycle, Beverly Hills was required to accommodate just three units of affordable housing, while Azusa, a far less affluent city of the same size, was assigned a goal of more than 600. Now, Kirkeby said, exclusive cities will have a harder time using their political clout to avoid taking on their fair share of affordable housing.
