Palo Alto Online Palo Alto Weekly: Who Palo Alto’s 2,860 homes are planned for (June 11, 2008)
Who Palo Alto’s 2,860 homes are planned for
690 homes: very low income (less than $53,050)
543 homes: low income ($53,050 and $84,900)
641 homes: moderate income ($84,900 and $126,600)
986 homes: above moderate income (more than $126,600)
* Income for a family of four
Honestly, if you don’t make at least $84,900 for a family of four, you really shouldn’t be allowed to live here. There should be some sort of income police that checks your W2′s and 1099′s, and has the power to forcibly relocate you to Vallejo or Gilroy if you don’t meet that criteria.
Don’t take it personally. It’s all about protecting community.
