6:01 pm
really a violation and of course, i understand her reaction to this issue and so that means we have to work harder to make sure that we have more police officers on streets, that we are addressing some of the causes of crime in the first place and investing in the right programs and doing everything we can to deal with these issues. >> reporter: we shared the mayor's response with angela. >> what do you think? >> i'm glad to hear she's taking seriously and addressing the root causes. i would love to see the statistics that show car break-ins and crimes are down because that doesn't really match with everyday experience. and i'm glad to hear she's thinking about it but i think we need really specific plans. i want to know exactly what the plan is. >> so about plans, angela's city supervisor said the city made significant investments in place and drug treatment and pretty hopeful the changes will help

turn things around in the next few years. >> l's hope >> yeah. >> all right. thanks. crime is one issue that drives people to the breaking point with the bay area. cost of living is another. housing here is among the most expensive as you know in the entire country so it's a struggle that a lot of us can relate to. >> while cities are trying to build more housing, it may come late for teachers and firefighters and anyone trying to earn a living wage. >> lyanne melendez is live with the story of a teacher desperately, leeann trying as best she can to stay in the city. >> reporter: yes, indeed, dan. we heard of people having two, three jobs just to be able to live in san francisco and other parts of the bay area. this teacher went on next door to say my teaching job is no longer sustainable so i need a couple of jobs to make it work. the ever increasing cost just to live in san francisco has impacted the quality of life of this struggling teacher. >> going out just around the

goal of 10,000 affordable units by 2020. as of last december, the city had completed 7,386 units and confirmed 2,827 units are in the pipeline expected to be completed by 2020, which would surpass the goal set by san francisco. the california legislature is also trying to pass a bill that would cap yearly rent increases in the state at 10%. to keep people from being forced out. >> i rent when i'm 20% one year, many people have experience those spiking increases and for many people in the bay area, that's a matter of life and death. it's a difference between keeping a roof over their family's head and being on the street. >> it makes no sense anymore sometimes to struggle here when we could go somewhere else, make the same amount of money and make it work. >> recently the city agreed to
6:05 pm

themselves from being forced out. >> there is some help outside. we just need to be looking for. >> reporter: meet this woman that's relieved because of a recent home makeover that will provide her with recent stability. >> i couldn't believe it. if that's true or not. they said yes, we're going to help you. you qualify. >> reporter: waters was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and lives on a fixed income. she got in touch with catholic charities after learning about the organizations home share program. they connect people that need housing with homeowners that have under utilized space. waters had a spare bedroom to rent out. >> we do the background check and get to know our clients. i got to know her and find out what they are looking for to make the match perfect. >> reporter: there was a slight problem. waters' home had fallen into disrepair and didn't have heat nor was it wheelchair friendly so catholic charities connected to rebuild silicon valley. volunteers came in and made the repairs valued at $5,000 for no

6:08 pm
you know, you should be able to move out of the bay area and be fine and get a cheaper place elsewhere but she says why should i have to move? this is my home and this is where her medical team is. >> thank you so much, chris. to the east bay where they are thinking big picture when it comes to creating new housing. >> development planned what's now the south shore center in alameda would transform the island with some big city style high rises, construction could last for decades. >> liz continues coverage with a look at the details on this plan, liz? >> reporter: hi, dan and ama. this proposal would build 1200 units here including an eight-story apartment building in this parking lot. it will help address the detail and lease space here in the shopping center as well as address housing shortages but people who live here, many say it's the size of the proposal that has them concerned.
6:09 pm

6:11 pm
liz, traffic in alameda just like everywhere else around the bay area is a big concern for folks. did the developer say if they have a plan to address it? >> reporter: yeah, you know, they didn't really have an answer to that concern. they say it's still an early phase. they are getting input as they try to figure things out. the mayor said it's incumbent on everybody to do their part to help, take the bus, walk, take the ferry, carpool. she said if you want to help with congestion, you know, be part of the solution. >> okay. liz, thanks very much. >> what do you think about all of this? we want to hear your ideas about building a better bay area. new at 6:00 tonight, the abc 7 news i-team digs into a report pg&e knew the equipment could spork wildfires. >> the evidence that's specifically linked to the deadliest wildfire in state history. november's campfire in spencer .
