The Mission Moratorium plan to stop all new housing development that is not 100% affordable housing is an ill-conceived policy introduced in response to a very real and serious problem. We absolutely must do more to create new housing for people in San Francisco and protect those who currently live here from evictions. This requires a broad range of solutions, but halting construction of new housing should not be one of them. A moratorium will increase pressures on existing residents while depleting funding for badly needed affordable housing construction. Last week, I took part in a debate on this issue on KQED's Forum, which you can listen to here.
