Vacant city lands for affordable housing

New York City’s scarcity of inexpensive land is often cited as an impediment to building more affordable housing, but the comptroller’s office has identified more than 1,000 city-owned vacant lots across the boroughs that have been sitting idle, most for more than 30 years.

In the bay area, there are city lands that are vacant that should be allocated for affordable housing to show our care to the middle class and low income families and millenials.

Our population, those working in the high tech and non-high tech can no longer afford the high cost of housing in the bay area.

In a rented house, about 7 working adults are cramped to share the cost of $6000 per month house rent.  How can our millenials and families afford housing in the bay area?

Please email your comment to motherhealth@gmail.com to share and find solution to bay area’s high costs of housing.

If New York turns all its vacant lots for affordable housing, bay area cities should follow the same.
