Gen Fujioka, of CCHO member organization Chinatown Community Development Center, responds to Plan Bay Area. Full story here.

 

“…Many PDAs [Priority Development Areas] include existing mostly working class neighborhoods with high concentrations of renters. …the PDA strategy will put tens of thousands of families and seniors of modest means at greater risk of displacement, including most of the eastern third of San Francisco where a majority of lower income minority residents live and where many also work. Some of the locations considered to be the best targets for smart growth today are those urban neighborhoods with transit reliant communities that persevered through decades of disinvestment from middle class suburban flight.”
