Patrick Thorton has it right imo, but I think one ought to sprinkle that with the issues Dizzy raised. There is indeed a lot of close in affordable housing that many looking would not consider for whatever reason. The issue there is where would the people who live there currently move to...sprawl, as Richard Layman indicated. Also, the boogeyman of gentrification woujld raise it's head again, and that tends to stall most conversations. In the end, we just aren't meeting demand, which imo could easily be enhanced with building more metro lines or streetcars asap. That along side with easing the beaurocratic restricions to getting permits would go along way to easing the pinch.
