San Francisco Redevelopment Agency Finally Exits The Fillmore

See this story in the San Francisco Chronicle about the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and The Fillmore district. Some folks in Alameda are touting redevelopment as our salvation for Alameda Point, but what hath redevelopment wrought in San Francisco?

The San Francisco Redevelopment Agency will leave the Western Addition in January, ending a 40-year “urban renewal” project that was touted as a move to wipe out blight but actually destroyed the city’s most prominent African American neighborhood.

“The agency’s time there has not been a happy story,” said Fred Blackwell, who recently took on the title of executive director of the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency. “There have been thousands of units of affordable housing developed and a substantial investment made in the community, but those things are in no way envisioned as making up for the damage that was done in the early days.

“There is no way to make up for clearing large swaths of land and displacing thousands of people.”

Alameda residents need to beware of the actions of Alameda’s redevelopment agency, the Community Improvement Commission of the City of Alameda.
