"First off, show me that this is in fact a true crisis. Show me people who are truly priced out of every available housing option in the entire metro area. "

do a dozen unrelated men living in a older 3bR house in disrepair in an aging suburb count as priced out? two or more families sharing an apartment in an aging walkup apt complex? People paying over half their income toward rent?

There may not be many people sleeping outdoors in this region - but there are lots of people in housing situations that are very stressful, and that there really is no excuse for. Especially as many of the solutions simply involve getting out of the way of the free market. Or doing things like adding transit to enable density, that have substantial side benefits unrelated to housing.
