Problem DescriptionAffordable housing is a complex issue that brings together real estate development, housing policies (vouchers, rent controlled units, etc.), and transportation/job connectivity at a minimum. Keeping track of multiple factors, some of which are handled by specialists, can be challenging. Not being able to keep track of all the factors hinders progress towards realistic and multi-faceted planning.
Affordable housing implementation involves not only local/regional government decision making, but close coordination with real estate developers and transportation professionals to balance project needs.
