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.  


  1. Clearly identify your community’s need. 
  1. Create strong statements supporting affordable housing in plans 
  1. Have community discussions to dispel myths around affordable housing and showcase the economic benefits. 
  1. Recommend changes in regulations to further affordable housing.
