Bornstein Poverty Q3

Published by Paola Avendano on

Adopt land-use and zoning changes for higher density housing, innovative housing designs and fee waivers for housing affordable to the lowest income residents in their cities. They should not zone the majority of their cities for single-family homes on large lots with minimum house sizes and required design features, like chimneys in hot climates.
Additional thoughts
Cities and counties must recognize their responsibilities to zone land to a density that makes affordable housing financially sustainable, to locate housing near jobs to reduce the cost of commutes and childcare and to examine their impact and building fee structure as it relates to housing for lower-income residents.
