Only in San Francisco

In an "only in San Francisco" moment, an affordable housing development in the Mission is being opposed by neighborhood groups.

Typically the ones fighting development in their back yard, the Mission Economic Development Association (MEDA), is finding itself on the other side of the fence. Neighbors oppose the group's project at Shotwell and Cesar Chavez, arguing that not only will the building cast shadows on a park, but it doesn't do enough to create jobs in the area. 

If even the Mission can't get behind an affordable housing development, what hope does the city have at making a meaningful impact on sky-high rents by building subsidized units?
