City Council, District 3
I agree with the first statement that increasing supply is only one part of the supply side equation in the affordability crisis. However, with much respect for the information you have provided, I cannot fully commit to the second statement. I do understand the calculations made in the data provided, the overall net benefits and costs, but beyond those strict measures, I need more information to decide where I fall along the spectrum on this question.
I am by no means antagonistic nor put off by the perspective offered, and appreciate its refreshingly frank position in a climate that sometimes just boils down to “Build, Baby, Build” at whatever cost. In my time I have for this question, I would like to take the valuable information that you have provided, among others, and generate a stronger position. Please don’t interpret this as a traditional politicians cop-out, but as a serious attempt to work towards a more honest nuanced point.
