Please feel free to send questions to me or Bob Pullum and we'll add to our list. After we get through all of the questions we received over email and the chat, we'll open it so you can ask questions yourselves.

Is $5M about what the single family homes will cost?
Sam deutsch
01:05:56
is there any way for more homes to be built via increased density
Allison Arieff
01:08:06
Just want to say I am 100% in support of this project and would like to know what I can do to help it get through planning.
Sam deutsch
01:11:53
have you explored building less parking? will there be options for car free families
Todd David
01:14:26
SB 35 allows for 100% Affordable Housing to be built by right
Milo Trauss
01:14:28
what about the carbon savings in transportation or from avoiding have to pave over more land somewhere else further for an equal amount of less densely built housing?
Chris Lehr
01:14:57
I just don't see how these townhomes or single family homes will be considered affordable!
Arpi Bekmezian
01:15:29
I agree
Chris Lehr
01:16:41
Mike and Betsy can you find out when the Planning Commission vote will be and email the rest of us please?

this link from Cal shows that building urban infill housing is the #1 way that we can reduce greenhouse gasses at a local level is building more urban infill housing https://coolclimate.berkeley.edu/ca-scenarios/index.html

Denser cities are much, much greener as this and a million other studies/articles will show https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2012-04-19/why-bigger-cities-are-greener
Allison Arieff

Kudos to Todd! More research in support of his housing data https://www.spur.org/publications/white-paper/2020-03-09/what-it-will-really-take-create-affordable-bay-area

Thanks everyone

Happy to chat with anyone about why new housing is good for our community and our values
Sam Deutsch
01:34:01
we should be denser!
Allison Arieff
01:36:26
Yes Cliff, there is a lot of affordable housing here. It’s all occupied. The city needs to build 100s of thousands of units to even begin to keep up with demand.
Sam Deutsch
01:36:42
Beauty is subjective. I think it's pretty tbh
Sam Deutsch
01:37:54
i'm not sure I understand this complaint when existing homes also go for millions of homes?
Chris Lehr
01:37:55
But Allison, WHY does SF need to build to keep up? WHY denser and denser and denser?? And for the super wealthy as the current speaker says?
Jim Ausman
01:38:25
Can I get on the speaker list?
Cliff Detz
01:38:52
Allison: The solution to the housing problem cannot be solves within the SF city limits. The problem has to be solved on a regional basis. The city is already the second most densely populated city in the US
Arpi Bekmezian
01:39:12
I agree
Chris Lehr
01:39:17
I agree
Allison Arieff

9 below market units will be built if this project is approved. Denser because why should so many people be excluded from living in the city we all love? And Cliff, I worked for several years on a Bay Area Regional Strategy, which you can find here. https://www.spur.org/featured-project/spur-regional-strategy I am well aware of how much housing needs to be build region-wide and the extraordinary lengths so many people are going to in order to prevent it.
Chris Lehr
01:41:06
Alison they might be below market but they are still for the ultra one percent wealthy
Sam Deutsch
01:41:30
my grandma is 80 and takes the bus everywhere!
Jim Ausman
01:41:45
I hope to ride Muni when I am 80
Todd David
01:42:03
Chris--The 9 Affordable Housing units this project will finance is for low-income individuals.
Chris Lehr
01:43:02
Todd, I guess you'll need to explain that to me - I don't get it. bnclehr@yahoo.com is my email, thanks
Todd David
01:43:22
Happy to. Thanks. I'm toddsdavid@gmail.com
Sam Deutsch
01:43:38
replacing green space and building housing in dense urban areas is actually good for the environment
Allison Arieff
01:43:51
Green space? Glen Canyon is 60 acres and is one block north of this project. Billy Goat Hill is one block south (and has a great view for watching the moon)
Sam Deutsch
01:44:38
I support the project but strongly agree with Robert that it should take advantage of the state density bonus
Todd David
01:46:43
Thanks everyone!
