Fair Housing at committee this week
Monday, May 23, 2016 by Elizabeth Pagano
In a post on the City Council Message Board, Council Member Greg Casar said that, this Tuesday, his Planning and Neighborhoods Committee will be taking up the issue of fair housing, and he encouraged his colleagues to join in on the discussion. According to that post, the committee will be talking about such things as more mixed-income developments, small housing in high-opportunity areas, increased public investment to subsidize affordable housing and options that would allow homeowners to stay in place (as opposed to selling due to unmanageable property taxes).
