Housing for a Diverse and Sustainable Community

CITY PEOPLE 2.1We’re well into the third year of our public education campaign about preserving and creating* affordable housing. We’ve talked to people all over the County and find most agree that more affordable housing is critical to keeping Arlington diverse and sustainable, but they have concerns about how—the tools and strategies needed to make it happen.

If you’re new to the issue—

Link to Arlington County’s brochure on why affordable housing is important to our community.

Flip through AHS’s Just the Facts: An Affordable Housing Source Book for Arlington VA, with supporting data.

Invite AHS to present a more detailed look at the subject—to your neighborhood or civic association, congregation, or other group.

Learn on your own through the campaign’s resource page.

If you’re ready to learn more about the scope of the challenge and tools and strategies being considered—

Bring yourself up-to-date on Arlington’s Affordable Housing Study. Review the just completed needs analysis. The County Board will consider Housing Study Task Force recommendations in Spring 2015.

Link to highlights and presentations from AHS-sponsored events designed to stimulate discussion about current and critical issues.

We appreciate the support provided to this public education campaign by—
