San Francisco

Development Without Displacement

For the first time in decades, the Tenderloin has caught the attention of market-rate housing developers, high-end restaurants and short-term vacation rentals. This increased attention comes at a cost, as eviction rates increase, rents rise, and current residents feel unwelcome in their neighborhood. What can be done to accommodate change, yet preserve the Tenderloin as one of the rare places low-income residents can still dwell in San Francisco? Generously sponsored by Zendesk and co-presented by APA Northern California.
