Representatives of San Francisco and San Mateo County call on Brisbane City Council to put forward a development plan that addresses regional need for housing
San Francisco – Today, Senator Scott Wiener, Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin, Assemblymember David Chiu, and Assemblymember Phil Ting released the following statement in advance of Monday evening’s Brisbane City Council meeting on the Baylands Development:
“The Bay Area and California are in this housing crisis for a long list of reasons, but the fundamental issue is that we simply do not have enough housing that our residents can afford. California got here as the result of thousands of decisions, like the one being considered by the Brisbane City Council tonight, where the question was should we build housing and, if so, how much should we build. Too often the answer has been to either build no housing, or to build very little of it.
