“Not enough is being done…”

10 04 2014

From the SF Chronicle, on the Housing Balance:

“San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood is ground zero for the city’s housing construction boom, and Supervisor Jane Kim is worried that not enough is being done to ensure a good portion of that housing is affordable to low- and middle-income citizens. Kim believes that at least 30 percent of new housing construction in her district, which also includes the Tenderloin, should be earmarked as affordable. On Tuesday, she introduced legislation to maintain that “floor” by requiring developers to justify their projects to the City Planning Commission if the amount of affordable housing in District Six dips below 30 percent, where it has been historically.”
