Activism for Housing in SF

In Cramped and Costly Bay Area, Cries to Build, Baby, Build

According to a recent report from the California Legislative Analyst's Office, underdevelopment is the primary cause of the high housing prices in California. An interesting article in the New York Times describes a San Fransisco activism group trying to see more housing built. Unfortunate name, controversial tactics, but some similar themes to questions Eugene is confronting as well.

This might make it tempting to dismiss Ms. Trauss as just another colorful activist in a place where activism is a local sport. But the anger she has tapped into is real, reflecting a generational break that pits cranky homeowners and the San Francisco political establishment against a cast of newcomers who are demanding the region make room for them, too.
