Is there a plan to build more housing on Treasure Island?
Yes, the Treasure Island Development Authority has proposed a plan to build a neighborhood to accommodate roughly 19,000 people. This plan is controversial to say the least. Proponents of the Treasure Island plan argue the new construction will boost our local economy, generate revenue for our city and create more affordable housing. Opponents of the Treasure Island plan point out that Treasure Island is not connected to Bay Area public transportation, is built on unstable and earthquake-prone land and that the plan does not provide enough affordable housing options.
