Re: “Enviros Battle Developers Over Richmond Hills Open Space

This kind of development does not solve the housing crisis in any way. This is old school low density car centered suburban sprawl. The homes will probably run at least 750.00, many of which will be snapped up by cash buyers and investors. If we really want to relieve the housing shortage, high density multi unit developments along public transit corridors is the way to go. There are hundreds of acres of infill development sites available throughout the east bay. Why build on open wild lands if the real object is to provide affordable housing for the middle class and not compounding the already impossible traffic congestion along the I-80 corridor. I've heard it said that that american suburban development is the greatest misallocation of resources in history both in terms of land use and transportation planning.

Re: “Oakland, Richmond, Berkeley Leaders Vow to Protect Immigrants Against Trump Administration

We will see how long the city administrations endure the pressure of losing federal dollars. That's when the rubber will hit the road...when city governments and residents have to choose between protecting the undocumented and cutting city budgets. Will people be willing to make such a sacrifice...a sacrifice that may involve layoffs of city employees, cancelled capital projects, neglected infrastructure, longer police and fire response times. I'm curious to see if a wedge materializes between these two interests or if people are able to resist Trumps divide and conquer strategy.
