Re: “Pending Eviction of Former Black Panther Aunti Frances Highlights Just-Cause 'Loophole'

There doesn't seem to be an easy solution to gentrification. Both tenants and landlords are between a rock and a hard place. The fast-paced rising cost of living in the Bay Area has left working class citizens unable to keep up. At the same time it's unfair to demand that a mom-and-pop landlord subsidize the cost of living for a tenant for the rest of their life. The only solution to this problem is to build high rises in places with high demand. The Bay Area needs to move away from single family homes and three story buildings just like New York. However, some NIMBY folk oppose this type of development.
