- In Brisbane, a battle between small-town and housing advocates
By Lizzie Johnson - Tuesday Aug 8, 2017
After a heated, two-plus hours of public comment, the Brisbane City Council pushed to at least the end of the month its vote on a proposed mixed housing and commercial development that has pit proponents of the city’s small-town feel against those who say the region desperately needs more housing.Just south of San Francisco, the property owned by S.F. developer Universal Paragon Corp. rests along a high-tech, job-saturated corridor stretching to Silicon Valley.The sprawling plan would fill 684 acres of former rail yards and bay fill with 7.5 million square feet of office, industrial and retail space, and — most controversially — 4,434 homes, apartments and condos.Brisbane officials’ reluctance to approve the housing — they continue to delay the decision — has sparked a heated debate over the region’s housing crisis, with housing groups and advocates weighing in.At the meeting’s start, housing activists passed out neon green stickers reading “Build housing.”The Bay Area Council, a business advocacy organization, and a handful of state legislators also released statements Thursday in support of the proposed thousands of units of housing.“The Bay Area and California are in this housing crisis for a long list of reasons, but the fundamental issue is that we simply do not have enough housing that our residents can afford,” said a joint statement released by state Sen. Scott Wiener and assemblymen David Chiu and Phil Ting, among others.[...] at the meeting, some residents pushed back, saying that increasing the city’s housing stock would destroy its identity and that it wasn’t their responsibility to solve the region’s housing issues.
- Richmond mayor wants to scrap city’s public Housing Authority
By Kimberly Veklerov - Saturday Aug 19, 2017
Richmond Mayor Tom Butt is proposing the dismantling of the city’s Housing Authority, saying that diminishing funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development make the agency’s continued operations untenable. Butt said dissolving the Richmond Housing Authority would not eliminate existing public housing, but would essentially divorce the city from financial responsibility over the subsidized homes. He said the city has spent millions to maintain the properties because HUD has not provided its fair share for upkeep. In calling for the authority’s elimination Friday, Butt requested that the authority first investigate the inadequacy of its federal funding levels.
