Where are the people who don't win their petition going to go? Are they going to join the homeless people living in SFO? Rent is already so high. Is this company increasing rent because property taxes are increasing or what???

EPA residents will need to move somewhere else where they can find cheaper rent. It's that simple. Prime land will be re-developed in EPA and it is just a matter of time before many tenants and homeowners will need to move. Many people are leaving the Bay area because it is just too expensive. Our neighbors just moved to Paso Robles and some to Salinas.
