The Bay Area Plan is one of many mandated by social activists and special interesr groups in control.of the state legislature. Next is SB 1 that will authorize the creation of un-elected local boards to tax, borrow and take private property for various purposes including spurring economic growth. Will.Governor Jerry Brown go along? You bet.

The only way to fix freeway traffic congestion is if you transfer building from the central valley to the bay area. That is not being done. We are going to be building more, and the central valley will continue to develop. This will be adding to the problem. People I know who have moved to the central valley is because they can get a bigger house for their 'investment'. By forcing all this high-density housing to go in here, you are now forcing people more people to move to the central valley if they want a larger house, thus increasing the traffic, because there will be less larger houses and more apartment/multi-family units.
It is possible that this plan is going to raise the prices of single-family homes even more, which I guess is a good thing for those of us who have one. This looks almost like a moratorium on single family houses with yards if the cities are forced to build multi-family on the remaining land. That will make the single-family homes with yards worth even more because we will not be building new ones. I believe this is the intention of our elected officials as they will need more property taxes from the existing housing stock to pay for the services for the subsidized housing going on.
