Program

Steve Maher, Our Valley Our Future Coordinator, discussed the affordable housing initiatives from the Our Valley Housing Report.  A diverse group of community members met for over a year and a half to develop a plan with 18 recommendations.  He talked about barriers and costs to future housing, where building is likely to take place, and types of buildings we might see.  The focus is on middle level market housing (household income levels from $41,800 to $74,000).  Steve handed out flyers summarizing the 18 recommendations.
