Affordable Housing is welcome in SoHo and NoHo. Upzonings and more and bigger big box retail are not.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Affordable housing is welcome in SoHo and NoHo. But upzonings -- massive giveaways to developers that result in out-of-scale development and vastly increased amounts of super luxury housing -- and allowances for more and bigger retail and chain stores are not. There are better and more effective ways to address the need for affordable housing in these neighborhoods, and the city should be helping small independent businesses, not big retail chains.
