Housing Trust Fund

On Tuesday, County Commissioners unanimously approved a plan to create 2,550 affordable housing units in Orange County, along with a separate plan to incentivize the construction of more affordable housing. Despite all the attention on our rent stabilization ordinance, it is not a panacea. Rather, it is one of many ways we can begin to broach this issue. Done in conjunction with measures like these, we can make real short term and long term progress in providing our residents with realistic housing options. It takes a village to save a village.
