Report from Housing
The Housing Stakeholder Group is expected to wrap-up meetings in the next month, and
Housing Advocates are among the highly engaged stakeholders and are encouraged by dialogue that is goal-oriented, strategic, and practical. The group is anchored by a shared sense of responsibility and view that our housing crisis is a problem to be owned by all sectors, including government, business, and individual interests. There are more than a dozen strategies being proposed and discussed and expectations are high that the report developed at the conclusion of the meeting process will bring a sound recommendation to the Board. Policies, ordinances, fee waivers, deed restrictions, tax incentives, and public-private partnerships are among the many topics on the table. A primary focus for Housing Advocates is to keep a steady drum beat on near-term solutions, so actions that lead to real construction can happen now.
