The hardest part of our work here at Eden are the daily pleas my staff and I get from people who are desperate for an affordable place to live.
We help them find the way to our waiting lists and to the new communities we are developing. The sad reality is that our waiting lists are years long and when we open a new development, we are getting thousands of applications for every home we have to offer.
Today we have more than 22,000 households on our waiting list and for once, WE AND YOU can do something about it!
In Alameda County, San Mateo County, and Santa Clara County there are three ballot initiatives that could generate more than $2 billion of badly needed investment for affordable housing. If these pass, it will help Eden and our colleagues in the Bay Area make a real dent in this problem.
Tuesday’s election offers all of us the opportunity to make a difference in our own communities by making room for people to live here affordably.
