Housing Balance Report Reinforces Need For Preservation Legislation

December ccho newsletter – excerpt

The Board of Supervisors Land Use Committee held its hearing on the City’s latest Housing Balance Report recently released by the Planning Department. The report states just under 18% of net new units built in San Francisco over in the last decade were affordable, showing that SF is losing stable rent-controlled units at an astonishing rate — for every two new affordable units, the City loses an existing rental housing unit.

CCHO worked with ABC News on a story that aired over the weekend about the housing balance report and how it reinforces the funding need for San Francisco’s small sites acquisition program. Watch it here.

Stories around the housing balance report reinforcing the need for preserving affordable housing also appeared in SF Weekly, KQED, 48 Hills, San Francisco Examiner and San Francisco Chronicle
