“In District 2, we have folks that are at the highest risk of displacement with the lowest opportunity to jobs and employment. That is a breeding ground for displacement, so OK we’ve identified those two problems. What are we going to do about it?”
Morales said allowing backyard cottages and the city’s Housing Affordability and Livability plan as possible solutions to reducing displacement. She also said the city should start directly building more public housing.
To fight rising childcare costs, Morales said the city should incentivize building new childcare centers and subsidy costs for families so no family is forced to spend more than ten percent of their income on healthcare.
