|(April 13, 2019, 12:45 p.m.) -- On the day Gov. Newsom was sworn into office (Jan. 15, 2019), he signed Executive Order N-06-19 directing Sac'to's Dept. of General Services to create an inventory of all state-owned property parcels "in excess of state agencies' foreseeable needs." He then ordered that agency to work with Sac'to's Dept. of Housing and Community Development and Housing Finance Authority to prioritize affordable housing development on those parcels by identifying and evaluating them based on the following:
In Long Beach (apart from leased office space, the Governor-ordered process identified ten state-owned property sites in Long Beach, but several don't seem likely to be deemed "in excess of state agencies' foreseeable needs." These include the DMV office on Willow St., Marine Stadium, downtown LB's Deukmejian Courthouse plus parking structure and CSU Chancellor's office. They also include CSULB's campus (large open spaces but also space-constrained and in parts seismically challenged) as well as the off-campus Belmont Heights residence used by CSULB's President.
Among the ten sites were three state-owned properties currently used by CalTrans (images via CA Dept. of Gen'l Services GIS map at https://spigis.apps.dgs.ca.gov/). It's not immediately clear to what extent, if at all, these might be deemed in excess of the agency's "foreseeable needs" and might otherwise meet the criteria under Governor Newsom's Executive Order regarding use of state-owned properties for affordable (subsidized/low income) housing.
