For as long as I’ve lived in our neighborhood, affordable housing has been a problem. Whether it’s looking for a place to call home as rents rise and large institutions in our neighborhood buy up buildings, or trying to shop at local stores and restaurants that are being pushed out by high rents and big box stores - everyone has felt the crunch of the rising cost of living. In recent years, these factors have only accelerated.
The people that are building this city can't afford to live in it themselves. We aren't making the future better by creating housing issues that effect the whole community.
