Ownership vs Renting in Emeryville
As Emeryville continues on with its program of building nothing but 100% rental apartment buildings, housing activists release the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, a very informative website allowing for graphic income comparisons between owners and renters in the Bay Area and beyond. The site addresses issues around ownership wealth building for communities. It's clear that ownership housing changing to rentals, a common thing in high rent Emeryville, cements the income gap. This site is valuable for Emeryville residents to increase understanding as we begin the debate about narrowing the ownership to renter gap for new residential projects in our town.
