Affordable Housing

City leadership, government leaders, and nonprofits must be willing to work together and get creative in order to provide more affordable housing options in our district. Policies and measures that have been proven to increase affordable housing options already exist: building up, not down; allowing inclusionary zoning, providing cost offsets to developers; etc. We just need the political will to make these solutions happen. Affordable housing should cost no more than 30% of an occupant’s income, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. These days, however, local families struggle to pay for housing because wages have stagnated while home prices and rent continue to increase. I believe that having a safe, affordable home should be a right for all, not a privilege for the the few.
