Editor’s Note – Not too sure I agree with the reporters assessment. Why are RHNA numbers on the rise- the same numbers that have been deemed fatally flawed in a court of law. Why is the State importing poverty; then, claiming that social justice is the answer? Why do developers get a wavier to pollute when transit oriented is offered as solution for climate change? Why are interest rates next to nothing, fomenting malinvestment in more high-density, when it is proven home buyers want single-family homes?
Why do agencies and politicians push the narrative that there is a housing – affordable housing – CRISIS?
It is government regulations that have pushed up prices. Therefore, government is complicit in causing a problem that did not exist in the first place.
