Dave Gustafson has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Coastal Housing Coalition.

Gustafson is a retired community development professional with nearly 40 years experience in his field.

Before his retirement, he was the assistant community development director/housing and redevelopment manager for the City of Santa Barbara for 13 years and was the acting community development director during the last year of that tenure.

Before coming to Santa Barbara, Gustafson held professional community development positions with San Diego County and the California cities of La Mesa and Chula Vista. He is an expert in affordable housing and redevelopment programs, Community Development Block Grant activities and economic development programs.

Gustafson also serves as vice president of the Board of Directors of Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, a nonprofit housing development organization, and serves on the board of the PSHH-associated organizations, the Duncan Group and Chapel Hill Housing Corp.

“Dave brings to the board a real expertise in the generation and preservation of affordable and workforce housing,” board President Jim Youngson said. “He will be an invaluable addition as we continue to develop and promote workforce housing solutions throughout South Santa Barbara County.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
