In this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast, brought to you by Eden Housing, host Joanne Greene speaks to Alameda Mayor Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft. As Mayor Ashcraft says, “[California] can’t boast about being the 5th largest economy in the world, while at the same time have thousands of our citizens unsheltered on the streets. We have to do lots of things, and we have to do them simultaneously.” Most recently, the City of Alameda, along with Eden Housing and Alameda Point Partners, broke ground on Alameda Point Senior Apartments, which will provide 60 new homes to seniors on the site of the former Naval Air Station Alameda. Hear more about this development, as well as Alameda's unique history, successes, and future plans, in this episode.

In this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast, brought to you by Eden Housing, host Joanne Greene speaks to Supervisor John Gioia, a long-time supporter of affordable housing in California. Gioia serves as Chair of the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and represents the Western area of the county.

Rank #3: Creative Solution to the Affordable Housing Crisis: ADUs

Podcast cover
Read more
While there are many creative ways to address the affordable housing crisis, the development of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) is one that is quick to build, does not require a public subsidy, and can be integrated into existing neighborhoods practically seamlessly. Unfortunately, cities and local governments have erected great barriers to their development. In this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast brought to you by Eden Housing, host Joanne Greene speaks to Senator Bob Wieckowski, a champion of affordable housing who represents California’s 10th Senate District. As Wieckowski brings to light, many barriers still need to be conquered in order to reflect the notion that ADUs accessorize the mother house and should not be treated as new developments.

Rank #4: Addressing the Housing Crisis: What Must be Done?

Podcast cover
Read more
The Bay Area, along with the entire state of California, is facing a housing crisis. There are a multitude of complex causes, including a history of under-building, obstructive policies, and a constantly increasing demand for housing. In this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast brought to you by Eden Housing, host Joanne Greene speaks to Caitlyn Fox, Director on the Justice and Opportunity Team of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI). As Fox explains, housing is the most foundational component of the opportunities that an individual and a family get access to in their communities. It determines where children go to school, what types of jobs individuals have access to, and how long it takes to commute to work. She offers brilliant insight into ways we must continue tackling the crisis.
