Regulation of Sober Living Facilities:  Beyond proactively and consistently enforcing our local ordinance (to the full extent permitted under the law), I will work with other cities in California (and in other states like Florida where sober living homes are a significant issue) to lobby our federal representatives to amend the ADA and FHA in a manner which allows cities to effectively regulate sober living homes in residential neighborhoods to protect the residential character of our neighborhoods. We must also ensure that local residents needing assistance with substance abuse get the help they need in a safe, compassionate environment.
