A new @berkeleyigs survey has revealed broad backing across party lines, demographic groups and all regions in California for restricting housing growth in wildfire zones.  http://ow.ly/YHOr30oXEkN 

We just had the deadliest and most destructive wildfire season in California history. And officials are growing increasingly anxious over what many fear will be another one.

Previously, @dillonliam found that Northern California’s wildfires burned homes at a greater pace than developers were building them, deepening a housing shortage that already has left millions struggling to find affordable places to live.

But aside from agreeing that new homes should be limited in fire-prone areas, voters were evenly divided over whether California should require cities and counties to build more homes in their communities.

The survey did find a split among age and demographic groups on whether California should take a larger role on expediting more housing.  https://lat.ms/2WQyuvk
