Affordable Housing?

September 27, 2012

On the day that the Mayor’s Task Force on Housing Affordability was published, the folks next door — renting a house that is due for redevelopment at some point — came close to completing their own affordable housing structure:

Not so much a lane house as a front yard house, I guess.

Task Force On Affordable Housing

September 27, 2012

The Mayor’s Task Force on Affordable Housing has released its Report.  It is available here as a PDF, and I urge everyone to read it.  The Report is important in and of itself but is of especial significance given that we are currently involved in the development of a new Community Plan for Grandview — a plan that will be strongly influenced by the Report.

I have only had time to quickly skim through the Report and so cannot make any specific comments yet.  However, I did notice that it recommends an experiment with Thin Streets in Grandview, a concept that I have previously supported.

When I have had time to re-read and digest the Report’s recommendations I will certainly make my views known here,  In the meanwhile, please let me know what you think.
