View Horace’s obituary in the San Diego Union~Tribune.
It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of our friend, great leader and industry giant Horace Hogan II, a veteran California homebuilder and San Diego Building Industry Association leader. Hogan died Monday after a lengthy battle with cancer.
“Horace was a pillar of our tight-knit industry community and even more importantly, an extraordinary generous human being,” said Guy Asaro, Chairman of the Building Industry Association of San Diego County. “ His legacy is vast, and his efforts helped lead our industry through good times and bad. All of us who knew and worked with him will miss him sorely, especially his infectious spirit-lifting signature laughter.”
At his death, Hogan was a principal with LandArc Group, a private land development company of planned residential and mixed-use communities based in Carlsbad. He previously was president and chief executive officer for Brehm Communities in San Diego, and before that was division president for Ryland Homes, a cofounder of Pacific Gateway Homes in Aliso Viejo, and was vice president of the Mission Viejo Company. In all, he had more than 30 years of executive leadership experience in the homebuilding industry. (more…)
The Solana Beach City Council voted to continue its hearing on whether to increase Inclusionary Zoning fees and requirements on new home construction. Responding to concerns raised by the BIA, the council voted unanimously to push the hearing to January 12, 2011 rather than adopt an ordinance that would result in a regulatory ‘double dip.’ The proposed ordinance would have required homebuilders to still pay the city’s in-lieu fee of up to $35,000 per unit even if the project is building low income units on site as part of the state’s affordable housing density bonus program. The state Department on Housing and Community Development requires local cities to provide density bonuses for projects that build low income housing but Solana Beach maintains that still does not satisfy their local ordinance
