West Oakland is the capital of homeless

The article says Oakland city budget is only 1/10 of SF’s. Wonder how much of that is due to property tax. That’s a huge difference.


#65

SF spends a ton, but what results do they have? The bulk of the problem is due to alcohol/drug addiction and/or mental illness. Unless we get aggressive on court ordered alcohol/drug treatment and/or court ordered commitment to mental hospitals, how is the problem going to improve? Forcing that is a slippery slope in terms of infringing on individual freedoms. I think overtime you’d see significant over reach to lockup people for trivial reasons.


#66

Slightly dated, but provides some data as to why our budget is so big


#67

The airport and hospital are ~$2B/yr. so even removing those the spending level is insane.

I was visiting my property on Saturday and had contacted a LA for a SFH relatively close by to my 4plex. OMG, sold for over 600K for a SFH in an up and coming area (yes, realtor speak). Then, I go to another open house, plenty of hipsters and young couples. Asian and white. Things are moving…

Not too bad…1/1 condo of only 720 sq ft sells for 550K. Near good old Piedmont Ave though…

I heard on the news this morning there were already some NIMBYs not wanting the crowds of people in their hood…
