Local Forum: 'The Cost of Living', October 26th at Florey's!

Florey's welcomes you to our discussion group!

***Thursday, October 26th, 7:30pm-9:00pm***

We will be meeting to discuss the topic: The cost of living.

From Nico:

Last month's discussion regarding education was fun, and we even managed to have a new face come by! Towards the end of the discussion, we started to talk about how even having a higher education doesn't guarantee you'll live comfortably, especially out here in the bay area.

So since Measure C is coming to a vote next month, and a majority of us have lived around in Pacifica to experience what is happening money and price wise, it's only fitting that the discussion on October 26th should be: The Cost of Living.

Admittedly, my expertise on this subject isn't as vast as some of yours are. So I hope to learn as much as I can about the nuances of the housing market and the cultural shift we're beginning to see.

Questions to Consider:
-How much was the rent for your first apartment?
-What would be a reasonable rent for an apartment now?
-With people moving out of the city, how does that affect the community?
-Do you know of anyone who's considering moving out or already out of the bay area?

We hope to see you!
