Affordable & Attainable Housing

 

To build a stronger city, we must address our housing crisis in a way that accounts for every resident and ensures we all benefit.

Our current council has taken important steps to address our housing crisis with Mandatory Housing Affordability (MHA) implementation, and the responsibility will continue to rest on the council’s shoulders to ensure it is executed smoothly.

I will work hard on the city council to address Affordable and Attainable Housing by:

  • Supporting the expansion of MHA legislation and legalizing condos and row houses city-wide, while monitoring the impact it is having on community members, and course correcting as appropriate.

  • Making ‘Housing First’ the standard in our city for our homeless community members, and ensuring those most vulnerable have access to compassionate care services.

  • Helping our aging neighbors to stay in their homes by raising the financial ceiling they have live under in order to receive property tax and utility breaks.

  • Collaborating with housing nonprofits, local businesses, developers and other stakeholders to conduct ongoing needs assessments of homeless community members.
