I would like to see an analysis of how many COVID deaths San Francisco “outsources” to surrounding counties because the essential workers who support the city can’t afford to live here.

I thought Santa Cruz would take a hit because to a large degree we have become a bedroom community to Silicon Valley. Surprisingly the majority of our cases are homegrown and socio/economic. One case in the county yesterday, part of a downward trend. Fingers crossed

I've had the same thought, but the stats for the Bay Area as a whole have been pretty good.

What is not special about SF and the Bay Area is that low income communities have borne the overwhelming brunt of it.

That's blatant here. 67% of the cases are from Watsonville a heavily hispanic/farmworker community that makes up 17% of the total population.

Commercial real estate apocalypse

The comments really embody the lived experience of SF public policy debates. And not just because they go on for ever and never reach any sensible conclusion.

Can they change office space --> housing?

There are also zoning issue with people living in non-residential buildings. I’ve been saying to clients for years that they should be looking to change zoning to make it possible to convert vacant retail and office space to residential.

One planning advantage would presumably be fewer NIMBYs in areas that are primarily commercially zoned?

Oh, aren't you precious? A NIMBY's backyard expands to fill whatever space between himself and the proposed building.

Dropped off my ballot at the polling station closest to my house. There was plenty of parking and if I had been voting in person there would have been no wait either. I guess that’s how you set it up if you actually want people to be able to exercise their right to vote?
