Brisbane Baylands, just south of San Francisco's border, presents a tremendous opportunity to create over 4,400 homes on an underutilized, transit-rich site. However, the Brisbane City Council is not entirely convinced housing should be built there. To take our advocacy a step further, we published a video to show why homes at the Baylands are important for the region. Watch it here and then sign our petition!

Really? Of all the problems we could address, a nap room?

It's for the commuter students who are here 12+hours for their classes of the day. Yes, it really is a good problem to work on.

NASA agrees!

"When NASA scientists conducted studies on astronauts, they discovered that a 25-minute nap improved judgment by 35 percent and vigilance by 16 percent. No surprise, then, that NASA encourages afternoon snoozes."

YIMBY Party

Senator Scott Wiener's housing streamlining bill that forces cities that ignore their regional housing goals to expedite housing through the entitlement process is up in the Assembly! Everyone is talking about the impact it could have on housing across the state. Some of us are going up tomorrow, Wednesday, morning for the last Committee Hearing in Sacramento!

Contact your Assemblymember, especially over social media! They need to hear that there is loud public support! You can find their contact and social information by using the new YIMBY Scorecard: sankarravi.github.io/yimbyscor...

Mayor Edwin M. Lee

"On Monday, I took a walk through the City’s Medical Respite Center, a facility that provides specialized treatment and healthcare services to residents dealing with homelessness. I was able to speak with our dedicated employees and learn more about this important center and the critical services it offers.

That facility will soon double in size, expanding from 7,500 square feet to 15,000, while increasing the numbers of available beds from 45 to 79. Our $3.5 million investment into this expansion has been strengthened by a $612,000 funding contribution from Tipping Point, a private organization that has pledged $100 million over the next five years to reduce chronic homelessness by 50 percent in San Francisco.
Tipping Point’s $100 million allocation will go toward the creation of new housing units, and investments into mental health, child welfare and criminal justices systems.

Our partnership with Tipping Point is the latest example of how we can work with our philanthropic allies to expand, develop and scale-up our successful homelessness programs. Homelessness is a complex challenge, without any silver bullet solution, and I have called on our private partners to join the City in tackling this issue."

SFHAC-member Panoramic Interests has proposed creating up to 1,000 homes for formerly homeless residents using prefabricated steel construction. But this idea has made little headway in San Francisco because of concerns from trade unions and unwillingness from city staff to devote public land to such a project. The SF Chronicle reports on this and other solutions underway to address homelessness.

Supportive housing in short supply, but tiny homes may fill need

The best way to pull the hardest-core, most visible homeless people off the streets of San Francisco is to provide them with supportive housing — rooms or apartments in buildings with counselors on-site to shepherd them through the addictions, mental or other afflictions that had ruined their lives. The city has placed 14,000 people into...

What I like about the modular style stackable and tiny homes, is that they can be moved to wherever there is a temporary space. Just pop it on a trailer. That is the point, right? Why not set them up like parklets?

Several subsidized affordable and market-rate housing projects are underway in the Mission, totaling in over 1,000 homes. The SF Business Times highlights these plans, which will enable thousands of people to live in a walkable, transit-rich neighborhood with two BART Stations.
