San Jose is getting ready for an election face-off on one of the Bay Area's biggest challenges: housing. Measure B proposes rezoning the Evergreen Hills area above the city for residential development and would enable building on other non-residentially zoned sites as well. Measure C would restrict development outside the city limits to ensure that all development is environmentally viable and would render Measure B moot. We'll take a look at the opposing measures and what they could mean for San Jose.
