We are for a balanced and sustainable approach to housing. One that prioritizes the environment and the quality of life in our community while allowing for housing to be built.
The proposed housing development at 1900 Diamond Street in its current state does none of these things. Nor does it provide affordable housing – none is actually being built. The developer is paying a fee, required by law, to buy their way out of the commitment, instead of directly building units which the city wants. The development does not solve the city’s housing crisis: all 24 units are between $2.3 and $5 million.
The proposed development:
**This is a multi-year, large scale project that will require the total destruction of a hillside, including removing 7,500 tons of dirt and fully exterminating the current ecology.
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION: If you agree that this project as proposed is out of scale for the area, not in keeping with the environmental values of San Francisco and will have significant negative impact on the community (loss public view, 27 Monterey Cypress, more traffic, etc.) without addressing the affordability of housing. And if you agree that a more in-depth review is needed by the city of the environmental impacts as well as an alternative plan developed to create a more balanced approach to the 1900 Diamond. Thank you for your support!
