Orange County seeks input on affordable housing

Posted by on Fri, Feb 13, 2015 at 2:18 PM

Affordable housing is on our minds for many reasons, not the least of which being the ongoing planning for Durham and Chapel Hill's 17-mile light-rail system. The light rail is expected to bring massive hikes in land values along the track, forcing local government leaders to make housing preservation plans now.

Next week is your latest chance to weigh in on the subject in Orange County. County commissioners will hold a public hearing Tuesday regarding housing needs in the county, Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough.

Commissioners are prepping a five-year strategic plan for addressing the county's housing problem. The plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which supplies federal housing funds to the county. Orange County must submit its plan by May 14 to qualify for federal grant funds.

Tuesday's meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Southern Human Services Center at 2501 Homestead Road in Chapel Hill. For more information, the meeting's agenda can be found here.
