So what's your take on the issue? If the goal of legislative reform is affordable housing, perhaps a solution would be to shorten the liability period for condo buildings that have a certain percentage of units in the affordable range?

A few weeks ago, I was driving around NW Aravda looking at homes in that area and those bordering Standley Lake. Did not see a single for sale sign.

This list lost a lot of creditability (not that there was much to begin with) with the point highlighted in red.

To reach our top 35, we started with the 100 most populous cities in America and used open-source Internet data to measure vital stats like salary and employment rates, and the cost of rent and utilities, as well as everyday concerns like public transportation, weather and crime. We also considered lifestyle metrics such as the price of dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings and an ounce of high-quality weed—you know, the important stuff—as well as access to live music and sports.

Agree. I don't know a lot of 35 year olds for whom either BWW or weed rank high on any list of important lifestyle factors. Now if they'd used breweries per capita or bars and restaurants per capita it might have been a plausible list.
