I am often amazed by a community’s initial response for permission to build affordable, clean, safe, low-maintenance, long-lasting housing.
They often refuse such construction, yet they must know or have a son, daughter, parent, grandparent or friend in dire need of suitable shelter. In today’s economy, anyone of us can suddenly be in that same situation.
The numbers show that 2/3 of all renters in America are one or two to a household and 40% of those make less than $8 per hour. Communities that oppose construction of needed housing are not facing reality. Why not allow something good to happen? The need is with us and it’s not going away.
