Measure E Passed: San Jose Voters Approve a More Affordable City

Dear supporter,

Over the course of the past few months, San Jose residents showed the world their commitment to housing. Residents voted in support of a more affordable San Jose. The City’s housing bond measure, Measure E, has passed with 53.6% of the vote.

Measure E will generate an estimated $50 million annually for affordable housing by raising transfer taxes on luxury homes and commercial properties valued over $2 million. Countless low-income families, seniors, persons with disabilities, and veterans will gain access to a safe, affordable place to call home.

Eden Housing played a vital role in supporting this campaign. Staff showed up to rally, canvass, and phonebank for the measure. Site staff at Ohlone Chynoweth Commons graciously hosted the campaign’s video recording, and Resident Services and Property Management staff throughout San Jose helped inform residents.

I am grateful for Eden’s trailblazing efforts. Together with our partners and supporters, we are changing the world, one corner at a time.

Sincerely,

Daniela Ogden
Vice President of Communications, Advocacy, and Fund Development
