Summary

Activists and politicians are trying to end that distinction by forcing Piedmont to build “affordable housing” and increase density by allowing multi-family units.One activist put it this way: “This is really what people have been pushing for — this desegregation of Piedmont,” Darrell Owens, a member of East Bay for Everyone, said in a San Francisco Chronicle article about the effort to transform yet another American suburb to an urban neighborhood.The anti-suburb movement is based on the idea that these kinds of neighborhoods are racist based on restrictions on who could buy houses decades ago under now unenforceable rules.And on top of the activism in California, cities are required to outline housing development goals every eight years.The Chronicle reported on the efforts to transform Piedmont to a smaller version of Oakland, which is rated “safer than 1 percent of U.S. cities” with safest being 100 percent:In the last housing cycle, Piedmont was asked to plan for 60 new homes and the city fell short, issuing permits for just 37 units.
