The P&Zs are beginning work on the Housing Chapter. One of the first discussions the group was answering the question, "Who is affordable housing for?" They used the results from the community keypad sessions in the discussion - those results showed that the community is split on who housing is for. Is it for our "workforce" or should it be used to promote "community?"
After a lively discussion, the P&Zs determined that affordable housing should be for our workforce and our community in general. The group agreed that calling it "Community Workforce Housing" was most appropriate.
Stay tuned for more information on the chapter! The next meeting on Housing is on February 23, 2010.
