Marin's housing crisis gets national coverage

A deep dive on marin's housing crisis from npr

We've known it for years: Marin is in the middle of an affordable housing crisis. With a decades-long wait time for affordable homes and near-stasis in development of any new homes, seniors have taken to living in storage units and families have taken to living in their cars.

American Public Media's flagship economics program, Marketplace, has taken a deep dive into Marin's housing market: over 20 minutes of national attention on one of the worst housing markets in the country.

As a small place, we don't often get a mirror so we can see the ugliness and problems we face, but this time we get a really clear one. Comments about how affordable homes are always the ghetto or that our kids don't deserve to live here betray a dark side to Marin's affluence.
