Finding an affordable place to live in San Diego is a challenge. More and more people are being priced out the market which is why it is so important to keep building affordable housing projects. There are laws defining how much affordable housing must be built whenever a developer builds a new project, and 20 percent of redevelopment money is supposed to go that affordable housing. Is that all gone now that redevelopment agencies have been eliminated by the state supreme court?
