6:54 am
>> reporter: there's one problem not easily addressed, building consensus nem smaller cities for affordable housing. >> the biggest way to do it is to rally the community so they feel engaged and part of the conversation earlier rather than at the end when they start to see shovels breaking ground. >> reporter: in cupertino, a civil suit to oppose the use of a state law that allows fast tracking of an affordable housing project at vallco is still pending. the case won't go before a judge until august. even things meant to streamline approval of affordable housing can lead to delays. david louie, abc 7 news.
