These days, saying that there’s a housing crisis in California’s Central Coast is like saying the polar caps are melting. Duh! But how did we get here and how bad is it?

Over the next few months, Voices will present a series of real estate-centric stories in a project called “Tales from the Housing Front.”

We launch this project with a mile-high view of the numbers and will grow to include stories — in their own words — from renters, homeowners, advocates, policy wonks and developers.

If you have a housing story to tell and would like to participate in the project, email  joe@vomb.org.
