Jerry Brown’s 10K Plan Fell Way Short

Former Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown’s plan to bring 10,000 new residents to downtown only produced about half of that number because of the housing market collapse. According to a new analysis by the San Francisco Chronicle, the building boom during the Brown administration resulted in just 5,000 new residents in downtown — not counting all of the people who moved out of the area during the period. Brown’s 10K plan also resulted in a housing glut that threatens to slow the city’s economic recovery.
