JOEL ON HOUSING
As a westside homeowner, Joel believes neighborhoods of single-family homes are a unique part of San Francisco's diverse mosaic. Yet Joel also knows that building more housing will help middle income residents become homeowners — and he wants to keep families from leaving San Francisco. We need to construct more housing that families can afford. Restricting supply only drives prices higher. We also need senior housing, so our vast Baby Boomer population has options to safely age in place in San Francisco. With community input, we can preserve westside neighborhoods of single-family homes while building housing along transit corridors served by trains. It’s also important to create a Westside plan to know where existing sewer, water and transportation infrastructure can support more housing. The new homeowners will revitalize commercial districts and we’ll create housing for our kids to ensure our city’s future.
