San Francisco: a city of uncontrollable cycles of boom and bust, crises of evictions and displacement, and battles over development and affordability. The question again looms: How do we deal with the impacts of these market cycles and ensure that we will continue to be a beacon of economic and cultural diversity?
Responding to the 1980s office high-rise boom, Proposition M has defined development and infrastructure in the City's downtown to this day. Now, in the midst of another boom of development and evictions, Central City activists are proposing a Housing Balance Act, to link the rate of market rate development to affordable and middle-income housing.
