“It would be really transformative. Over the coming decade or so we could have millions of new homes with access to transit.”

The measure would allow housing developments of four to eight stories within a half mile radius of every BART station, Caltrain stop or other rail hub, and a quarter mile from bus stops with frequent service. The limit would be higher for main streets and developments near bus stops or immediately surrounding the rail stations.

Some can't reach a destination that doesn't exist.

This seems to rhyme with centralizing shopping out of the suburbs. You'll really enjoy traveling 10 miles to shop in your new car.

That is what we need. Not allowing homes to be built is a crime.

Ready for 6-story apartment complex (with 20% "affordable units") on the neighboring lot overlooking your backyard?

If you want a large garden with privacy you can always leave the metropolis and go live in the country side.

You can’t keep entire cities, and millions of people, hostage of your little backyard.

Once there is enough people on the other side of you, you won't get a say in the matter.
