3/9/18 ADDENDUM: THE MAILBAG (BILL BRADBURD)

3/9/18: BLACK UNLIKE ME

Clark,

The Amazon debate was against two people representing the Chamber of Commerce for the YES proposition. And while only 17% identified as Amazon, it was pretty clear from the start that the audience veered young and tech. (Ex-mayoral candidates) Moon and Oliver were able to swing the vote 6% points winning the debate as the audience slightly went fractionally for the NO side in the end.

Re Parking, reading Crank it’s no wonder that you frame it as a NIMBY problem. In reality it is developers that are producing expensive (not affordable) housing without parking because they can now by externalizing their costs to already crowded streets. The promise was that without parking, housing would be affordable.  And a 50 unit micro project–if it actually had affordable units, would be understandable without parking. Instead we get $1,200 220sft units that only drive other lower end units up in process, and on average 30+% of those units have cars pushing us over the capacity of street parking. We are not managing the problem well, and erring in favor of developer profits.

Regards,

Bill
