We’re on a break

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 6:01 am

Just a short one until next Monday.  That campaign — as truncated as it was — took a lot out of me mentally and emotionally.  Probably because I read too much NextDoor.  That was a whole lot of awful.

And thank you again, Alameda.

  1. So when we resume our discussion about solving the housing shortage, you can file this under “unique reasons governmental bodies find to reject a project”:.

    In San Francisco earlier this week, the city’s Board of Supervisors unanimously rejected an apartment complex, which would’ve contained 15 below-market-rate units, “because it would cast an evening shadow on a South of Market park.” Specifically, the building would’ve cast a shadow for 100 minutes on the longest day of the year, covering an additional 18.24 percent of the park in darkness.

  2. I closed down my NextDoor account! That was too much awful. And I won’t be going anywhere near Trader Joe’s for a good long while.

    • I was at Trader Joe’s twice yesterday, and it was amazing! Nobody hassled me for anything! If anything, I’ll go there more now! Except on weekend mornings when Slauson is out there.

  3. A lot of work to be done if we are ever going to solve the challenge of providing enough places for people to live.
