JOEL ON HOUSING
As a westside homeowner, I believe neighborhoods of single family homes are a unique part of San Francisco's diverse mosaic. Yet I also know that building more housing will help middle income residents become homeowners -- and we want to keep families from leaving San Francisco. Restricting supply only drives prices higher. We can preserve westside neighborhoods of single-family homes by building a few stories of ownership condos with parking and retail along transit corridors -- with community input. The new homeowners will revitalize commercial districts. We’ll also create housing for our kids and grandkids.
