Abstract

"City" piece on plans for the depressed Bayside area, including an offer of Bayside property for a new civic center by Owen Wells, administrator of the late Betty Noyce's Libra Foundation. Some members of the Bayside Neighborhood Association feel that the lack of affordable housing has become a crisis, and the city isn't doing enough to improve the condition or amount of housing in the area. Members have been taken on field trips to visit civic centers in other states and have been asked to sit on committees considering the neighborhood's future. Jay York, a Bayside property owner, believes that the rents will go up if change occurs, and that property owners will have the last word on what happens in the area.
