Last week, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer laid out his priorities for the upcoming year in his State of the City address.
Faulconer outlined an ambitious housing plan that includes eliminating height limits along public transit lines and parking requirements. It also allows unlimited density for projects that include affordable housing and housing for homeless residents.
San Diego Councilman Chris Ward, a Democrat, represents some of the densest neighborhoods in the city.
Ward is also chair of the Regional Task Force on the Homeless, which this week will be conducting its annual homeless count. Last year the task force was criticized for not including some homeless people in the count.
Ward, who recently announced he's running for state assembly, joins Midday Edition Monday to talk about his goals on homelessness for the year and weigh in on Faulconer's housing proposals.
