This is not a battle over whether we should stop building "affordable" housing or not. Nobody can do this.. The is a question as to what the City should do with their monies
We have two options:
- Continue what they have been doing and keep subsidizing more "affordable" housing projects.
- City of Worcester stop subsidizing "affordable" developers and put them on a level playing field with any other property owner/developer. If we did this then we could make changes; for example, give monies directly to qualified home-owners in targeted districts to do their own repairs.
