Judge Orders More Suburban Housing

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch has ordered the suburban East Bay city of Pleasanton to build more housing, in a move that promises to worsen suburban sprawl. According to the CoCo Times and the Chron, Roesch ruled that a 1990s era voter initiative that capped the number of homes in Pleasanton violates a state law that requires cities to meet their share of regional housing needs. Pleasanton has added tens of thousands of jobs in the past decade, but very few homes.
