I want
in San Francisco.
Dalila Hardwick

Hello everyone,
I have been following this site for a while, but unfortunately, nothing really is happening. I guess we need people on site to keep pushing, asking, and possibly demanding action from the officials.
I live in Los Angeles and I would love to move to San Francisco so I could finally ditch the car. But, prices are prohibitive and the idea of having roommates does not appeal to me given I am way past the "roommate" age.
The idea of a tiny home is extremely appealing to me - living on my own but close to other like-minded individuals, the best of all options for sure.
The push for more affordable housing ideas is actually there in the San Francisco area, so we might need someone or a group who can galvanize people and become a "real" movement.
I would love to help somehow, so if anyone has ideas please put them forth.

There are more parcels available in the east bay (El Cerrito, Richmond) but I am sure there are restrictions, ordinances around having tiny houses on the lots, especially without any primary building structure.

Several major mixed-use development projects slated for SF's southern bayfront hit significant milestones this fall. Forest City won final approvals from the SF Board of Supervisors for Pier 70, a 28-acre redevelopment in the Dogpatch. The Giants’ 28-acre Mission Rock mixed-use development near AT&T Park was approved by the Planning Commission and heads to the Port Commission next. BUILD's India Basin, a 38-acre project further south along the bayfront, is anticipated to get approvals in the first quarter of 2018. Together these projects could create up to 4.25 million square feet of commercial office and retail, nearly 5,000 housing units, many of them affordable, and 50 acres of parks and open space. Meanwhile, environmental review has kicked off for the former Potrero Power Plant redevelopment proposed by Meg Whitman and Associate Capital. And the Warriors’ Chase Center has reached 25 percent completion.
