A proposal to build a 146-unit, 8-story apartment building with 10 affordable housing units next to a BART overpass and a Home Depot in El Cerrito has set off a firestorm of opposition from neighbors. ...

Not everyone on the Nextdoor thread opposed the project, however. Matt Hoeft of El Cerrito commented, “…For every project that gets downsized, that’s fewer homes available for people who want to live here, resulting in higher rents and housing prices for all.”

Hoeft added, “This tendency to slow and stop housing [has been] a Bay Area custom for decades, and it has caught up to us. It’s benefited some, and it’s hurt anyone that wants to move here, or who lives here and needs a house with more room, or one that is closer to work.

“It has pushed commuters farther and farther away from the job centers making traffic worse and worse,” Hoeft said.

guaranteed those 10/146 units will be responsible for 90% of the crime in the complex.

Well, that is a valid point which should not be censored.

Poor people are supposed to be used for target practice, not for giving housing to.
