Build a wall around Pacifica. We don't want these evil outsiders stopping in town and spending money.

They're not doing that anyway, so there's no need for a wall

Are you guys joking ?
Who with a right mind would like to invest on mass cheap development for everybody ?
Beside that, let's say some one build 10,000 homes for low income people, do you think people with low income can afford the tax, interest, high utility bill or is this just a dream.

Thanks to Trump, he messed up all right-offs to a $ 10,000 cap. So later people with very low income can not afford to pay mortgage, so we will be stuck with 10,000 foreclosed homes.( This is to own a property )

On the other hand, if you guys think some one is going to build cheap homes with very low rent,what is in it for that investor ?
I tell you what. He would like to pocket money ( Nimby's favorite word ) and use our city as a solution for his right-offs at another location.

So some other locations get promoted and we get demoted.

PLUS, All the NIMBYS who are against traffic and widening Highway 1, now have to deal with 10,000 extra homes and about 15,000 extra cars.
I rather see we build less of a home and giant size property's with obviously less cars.
Some people can not get over the rent control and other non sense ideas and always try to hurt this beautiful town.

Who said we should take every body in ?
Whay qualification our city has in terms of financial or capital that makes us to think we need to solve every one's problem. Why don't you guys ask rich cities and town like Hillsborough. Atherton, Palo Alto, San Mateo, Belmont, an Carlos , ... etc which are way more richer than out cities to build super cheap houses.

1. You could always go to the meeting and tell him yourself.
2. What low-end level construction comes to us? What construction at all?

useless talk about housing in Pacifica. Enviros, Housing 4 All have defeated all housing projects, therefore there is no market rate housing available to pay any affordable fees = no funds to build affordable. Additionally, where is the land to build affordable? Gimme an address. Neighbors will oppose. Most affordable is 2 or 3 story, which no one supports. Housing 4 All propose a tax increase to pay for affordable? Fat chance. Soo, ferget about affordable in Pacifica. We talk the good game and that's it.

So tired of those complaining that Trump screwed us on our write offs regarding our state and local taxes. other states which have lower or no state taxes are sick of subsidizing California's outrageous tax system. The outrage should be on our local and state government to stop taxing us to death.
again, it's all Trumps fault.
