- Sound Off: The huge cost of pricing out
Friday Jun 30, 2017
If we don’t there won’t be anyone around to serve the food, fix the telephone poles or clerk in a retail store.If enough folks leave, rental rates and housing demand may go down.Increase the minimum wage to an actual living wage, allow more density as Oakland has done for accessory structures in residential neighborhoods and allow more multiunit housing in areas close to bus/BART.[...] there are affordable housing programs where in the city offers developers extra floors and exemptions from other requirements in exchange for promises to include affordable housing.Mission Economic Development Agency (MEDA) workshops and free coaching help low-income and working-class first-time home buyers learn of their many options to get into the tight and costly San Francisco market.The guidelines for Area Median Income (AMI) vary by property, ranging up to 120 percent, and is dependent on the family’s available downpayment.The principal amount, plus an equitable share of appreciation, is paid at the end of the loan term, or repaid upon sale or transfer.With the City cognizant of the need to help our middle-class SFUSD educators live where they work, the Teacher Next Door (TND) program was created for households making no more than 200 percent AMI.TND funds can be used for downpayment and closing costs to purchase either a BMR or a market-rate unit.Just look around at the huge parking lots surrounding business parks, malls - the cars sit there, baking in the sun, when they could either be underground or, even better, decreased in numbers because employees would have frequent, affordable public transportation with a well researched network of routes.Cities literally take years, not months, to approve projects, and a great deal of the blame for that lies squarely on us: existing residents do not want more housing in their neighborhood because more housing brings more traffic.

- Kushners face heated trial over suburban Jersey mall project
By GARANCE BURKE and BERNARD CONDON, Associated Press - Friday Jul 7, 2017
Plaintiffs in the mall suit are claiming town officials privately negotiated with the Kushners for half a year without telling the community, then rushed a vote on new zoning rules that benefited only Kushner's company after the deal already had been rejected.[...] the attorneys for the Kushner Cos. say the mall was in "steady decay" and that those opposing the expansion want to block the company from building affordable housing for needy residents.The Kushners have been pressing the city to approve a downsized version of a 22-building waterfront community the family promised years ago, but that is uncertain given resentment over stalled construction and a lawsuit from condo investors who feel misled.In August 2015, Kushner's parents threw a garden party honoring Trump at the family's block-long oceanside estate in Long Branch, where officials soon will vote on a proposal to give the Kushner Cos. and a real estate partner up to $25 million in taxpayer-backed financing for a resort development."Jared Kushner took the lead, he introduced himself and spoke about his company," Republican Mayor Dennis Connelly said in a description of the initial pitch, according to borough council meeting minutes.After news of the plan finally broke in the local press in February 2016, records show that one council member emailed Connelly to suggest people be allowed to comment in an upcoming meeting, saying residents felt "the project is being rushed."More than 100 residents packed a public meeting that April, with many arguing that Kushner's scaled-back plan to build 800 apartments would cause gridlock and drain social services in the sleepy borough.Judy Rutan, a caterer whose backyard flanks the mall, had been worried that the value of her home would fall with apartment blocks going up next door, so was relieved to think that the expansion was over."According to you, not according to us!" one resident shouted.[...] I'll call the vote now.With the town divided, four residents — three Democrats and one Republican — filed suit against Eatontown weeks before the presidential election seeking to void the council vote, claiming that borough officials' decision to meet in a smaller room was "practically designed" to limit debate.The suit accused officials of violating the public meetings act, along with breaking with procedure and land-use law by giving special zoning favors to a single developer, an illegal act called "spot zoning."
