This is not an ad, it is valuable community info. I hope that the residents of Buena Vista are made aware of the application process, this could be a great solution to their probable displacement.

Yet once again, MORE housing for the low, & "extremely low" (as the Eden housing website describes it) income population. The vast majority of affordable housing in Palo Alto is NOT for usual working poor - the low, "extremely low" MIDDLE class. I make just a little bit too much to qualify for this place, or all of the other places in town. As it is my kids & I have been on the P.A. BMR (below market rate) program for almost 10 years. They are almost finished with Paly!
I did some calculations with business friend a couple of years ago, & we figured out that by taking a lower paying job - as well as not needing to work so much overtime, with all the stress - I would have ended up with more cash in my pocket @ the end of the month.
It is just not fair....... I have no problem with the low, very low having housing. I just want the borderline families, like mine, to also have a chance.
