Re: “Oakland's Poorest Neighborhoods Will Be The Most Susceptible to Flooding Due To Climate Change And Sea-Level Rise

Sounds like time to build on higher ground. In San Francisco we have the opposite situation with most of the "high-value" property at risk of floods and sinking into the landfill mud. How will the wealthy cope? Will they lose their fortunes or sell out in time to beat the tides?

Re: “Low-Income Residents Thrive at 'Homefulness,' An East Oakland Affordable-Housing Hub That Does Things a Bit Differently

This is a great story. So good to hear that people are finding solutions that work and making them happen.

Re: “Dozens of Renters Lose Homes as City Closes 1919 Market Street Warehouse in Oakland

Enforcement or lack of enforcement is a sticky issue that is often the prime reason for displacement. There is supposed to be a separation of powers to protect citizens. But we are fast losing any separation or any protections for individual rights. The courts are our last resort. Good for the people who can and do fight those battles.

Re: “The True Sharing Economy

Glad to see others questioning the "sharing" concept as it is being used to describe anyone with an app that feeds the public online demand for services. The only sharing going on is among investors.

Re: “Oakland's Sweeping Plan for Parking

If you are smart you will fight it. This is another brand of forced scarcity that is driving up the cost of living. They started it with food and now they are using it with every other thing you may possibly need to survive. Ever wonder why your water bill gets higher when you use less water? The same principal applies.
Either you live the way you want or you live the way the government tells you to live. Don't give up another right. Stop them now!

Re: “Turning Housing into Hotels

I was just told by a realtor that there are over 20,000 units off the rental market in San Francisco. How many of these are short term rentals? If SF residents pass Prop F we may find out. If Prop F passes the internet services will be responsible for registering all the the hosts that support and we will know for sure where they are. More on Prop F: http://www.sharebettersf.com/

Re: “Oakland Sticks to Backward Thinking

You should publish the whereabouts of the empty parking garages near BART. I'm sure lots of people would like to know where they are.
