Plans are not regulations, but they set the tone and scope of regulations and are a clear voice of what a community wants. Plan development is an excellent place to discuss the need for affordable housing, dispel myths, and build support for subsequent regulatory changes.
- Clearly identify your community’s need.
- Create strong statements supporting affordable housing in plans
- Have community discussions to dispel myths around affordable housing and showcase the economic benefits.
- Recommend changes in regulations to further affordable housing.
