We are urging our members and voters in King City to vote ‘no’ on a recall election that would remove the majority of city councilors from their seats and potentially reverse long-standing land use decisions that will generate needed housing for the city and region. Last year, a very small group of disgruntled citizens gathered enough signatures to recall six out of seven City Councilors, including their pro-housing Mayor Jaimie Fender. The election will be held on February 13th, 2024. The issue stems from the 2018 decision by council (and approved by Metro) to expand their Urban Growth Boundary by 500 acres to build roughly 3,000 needed, new homes for existing and future residents. Rather than working collaboratively with council to concept a workable vision for growth, a few property owners are instead attempting to torpedo the years of thoughtful work carried by council and citizens to address the city and region’s housing affordability crisis, with the ultimate goal of reversing the established UGB growth decision. HBA is opposed to this recall, and we urge you to support the campaign to defeat it.
