DRAFT – NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION Page 2 1. Introduction: We Plan for People The Mission Anti-Displacement Coalition came together in the year 2000 in response to the hyper- gentrification affecting the Mission District. In the past ten years, hundreds of residents, artists, seniors, children, youth and families, as well as small locally-owned businesses and non-profits, have been impacted by displacement. Much of the displacement was a result of private development that did not take into consideration the broader social, economic and cultural impact on the Mission District community. Market forces and city-driven development policies disproportionately affected lower income working-class, immigrant, and Latina/o families and community-serving businesses. Given the economic downturn, many of the proposed and implemented development projects sit empty or uncompleted while the necessity for sustainable, well paying jobs and affordable housing needs go unmet. Instead we have a glut of unaffordable live/work lofts, high end condominiums and office space which drove out existing businesses and vulnerable residents. The Mission District community responded by organizing an anti-displacement movement which brought about the demand for justice and community participation in planning and development policies. One key demand was for the City to agree to a community planning process to rezone the neighborhood. Over a 1,000 Mission district residents have come together in a community planning process to articulate the goals which inform all new development proposals in the neighborhood. These include the promotion of more affordable housing, family-sized housing, protection and creation of living wage jobs, community serving uses, and public open spaces. We believe that affordability should be key in any discussion about new development. Neighborhood impacts, particularly cumulative impacts that displace residents and jobs, should be central in any discussion about new development. New development should prioritize the goals that have emerged from the community planning process and respect local organizing on land-use issues
