May 3rd               




1. The SB 27 debate isn’t going away. This bill aimed at increasing housing construction near transports may have been defeated but it will come up again. 

2. California’s business reputation is on the line. The corporate conversation in the Bay Area has shifted dramatically, to the point where executives are deciding it’s cheaper to open new offices in other states where housing is still attainable.
3.Young people are California’s new political force. For too long legislators have focused on appeasing existing homeowners at the expense of building enough housing for an expanding millennial population.
4. 2019 will be a big year for housing.
5. Housing is a health issue. Research has revealed that the housing crisis is leading to displacement and homelessness throughout the Bay Area.
6.We need high cost housing too. It’s commonly accepted that the Bay Area needs more affordable housing, but if we want to stop the tide of displacement, we need to build more luxury housing in upmarket areas too – and tackle the NIMBY-ism . of existing residents head on.
7. The environment is being used as a cop out. NIMBY’s are using false concerns about environmental protections to oppose housing reform, housing advocates say

While some modernization and remodeling through out in the kitchen, bath, carpet, paint, light fixtures, doors and wall treatments, this cabin still holds its logger charm.
