When half of your city in uninhabitable because of crime it reduces housing supply considerably. But don't expect city leaders to understand economics.

All that money wasted on the streetcar would have bought a lot of affordable housing. But that would not have put money into the pockets of the movers and shakers, so it was a non-starter.

Only $850,000 and tax abated for 25 years! Mayor will be your neighbor and close walk to pop up drinking, artisan pretzels, dog yoga, and the Big Beard Coffee Cafe.

They are not. Gentrification, displacement, forcing people out, gouging retired citizens to death out of their life savings and homes, the blight card, etc is the only game in town.
