I find it odd that no market rate housing development guest is part of this conversation. Housing that is subsidized by the public in some manner is an important part of our socieity’s housing equation; however, it by no means is a “solution”. The Housing Partnership Network (the nation’s leading alliance of non-profit affordable housing developers) report they collectively developed 225,000 housing units since 1990. While this accomplishment is laudable, its impact is insufficient when compared to the 28 million+ housing units created by the private sector over this same period. As out housing stock wears out and people’s preferences shift, solutions that enable the private sector to deliver housing more affordably are the only true long-term solution.
