The RKG study merely outlines what our housing policy should be and there is no reason why the CDC's can not work with the City of Worcester, private developers and individual home-owners to implement the recommendations in the study.
At the next meeting in August I hope that the comments are centered on the recommendations from RKG.
Remember this one important thing, this very same company (RKG) did a great Housing Study in 2002 and pretty much none of the recommendations were followed. Do you think the Housing Stock has improved during the past ten years??
- If you like the direction Worcester Housing stock is going, then we should not pay attention to their recommendations again.
- If you do not like the direction Worcester Housing stock is going, then we should follow the recommendations that RKG has laid out for us.
