We are thrilled with the City’s latest effort to address the housing crisis. This decision is a 180-degree turnaround from a 2012 decision to not allow new housing in the very same area. That 2012 decision was made even though Greenbelt Alliance, Google, and the Mountain View Coalition for Sustainable Planning argued that a mixed-use neighborhood in North Bayshore would be a model for environmentally-friendly growth.

New Housing to Sprout up in Mountain View | Greenbelt Alliance

Back in November, the Mountain View City Council voted to maximize new housing in the city’s North Bayshore area, allowing up to 9,100 new homes in a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood in this key regional job center around Google’s campus. But the seeds for these new homes were planted long ago.

Better add some more housing for middle income and lower income people or else will have no diversity or workers in lower paying service jobs.Unless you just want all high tech and robots to do all the work

Yesterday, San Francisco residents overwhelmingly said yes to more affordable homes by voting for Proposition A, easily clearing the required two-thirds majority.

Here’s what Prop A will do:
- Provide new housing for low- and middle-income individuals and families, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities
- Repair dilapidated public housing for San Francisco’s lowest-income families
- Offer loan assistance for teachers and first-time home buyers
- Help ease the housing crunch in the Mission District

San Francisco and the Bay Area have the highest median rents—as a city and as a region, respectively—in the entire country. Prop A is a $310 million bond for affordable housing that will directly fund building more homes for low-income and middle-class individuals and families. It will also create local jobs and ease development pressure on the Bay Area’s open spaces.

Proposition A isn’t just a win for San Francisco, but the entire Bay Area. The future of our region depends on our ability to create thriving, diverse neighborhoods while protecting the natural and agricultural lands that surround them. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote!

Prop A was endorsed by Greenbelt Alliance, the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California, SPUR, TransForm, the Sierra Club, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, the San Francisco Labor Council, the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition, and many others. Learn more about Prop A.
