For the past 10 years in San Francisco, eight jobs have been created for every housing unit built. This has led to a severe housing shortage, particularly for middle and working-class people. As Supervisor, I will:
- Build more housing at every income level - Accelerate and expand housing production at every income level and along transit corridors, especially affordable housing, by crafting solutions that tackle the unique obstacles to development on the Westside.
- Expand homeownership opportunity for middle class residents - Create financing programs to support first-time homeownership for families, teachers, and first responders.
- Encourage accessory dwelling units (ADUs) - Provide logistical and permitting support to residents seeking to add them to their property, and work with the Department of Building Inspection to fast-track approval.
- Preserve neighborhood character - Work with the Planning Department and other City agencies to produce a plan for development and preservation of our neighborhoods, prioritizing their unique architecture and character.
