None of this development is solving the problem of returning housing to its original purpose of housing people instead of investment dollars. The only way to change that may be to repeal Costs Hawkins. That would open each community up to experimenting on their own and with so many new options available, someone may come up with something that works better than what we have now.

For that reason we are supporting the Costs Hawkins appeal. If you agree, let your state representatives know. http://www.tenantstogether.org/campaigns/repeal-costa-hawkins-rental-housing-act

    This seems to mirror the comments we heard in Washington regarding the Speed Rail being able to whisk Silicon Valley workers living in Modesto home from their jobs once the speed rail goes in, as a good investment option. The theory was that the City real estate was too expensive and workers would rather have longer commutes than to pay such high rents.

    Not sure how many stops are planned for the speed rail, that was sold as a fast way to get from LA to SF. Stopping along the way will slow that trip down. If one can get from SF to LA why not live in LA and work in SF for that matter. Makes little difference either way.
