Title: TIC conversion to condo deep solution walking tour
START DATE: Friday February 01
TIME: 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Location Details:
American Youth Hostel
312 Mason Street
San Francisco California
Event Type: Teach-In
The SF Board of Supervisors is taking up the fast-tracking conversion of Tenancies-in-Common into Condominiums. Tenant Rights advocates want to preserve the rental stock and resist rental conversions into home ownership. Would-be condo owners know that with conversion of TIC to Condo, unit value will increase by upwards of ten percent, and that makes securing a loan much more likely.

Come along on a walking tour of land use history and possibility in San Francisco and beyond. Our guide, Leon Phat (past candidate for SF Mayor and Supervisor), escorts participants through a short history of San Francisco land use social movements, identifying places and people who have valiantly tried to secure both individual liberty and community puissance. Leon will present the 130 year old San Francisco legislation, as vital today as it was in 1879, which would simulatanteously make renters and land owners of us all, and in so doing resolve the housing schism manufacturing displacement, poverty, political opportunism, and the intellectual aneurism which plagues The City.

Free. Anticipate losing a millimeter of shoe tread on this dialetic stomp through downtown.
