The affordable housing crisis facing Woodstock is dire. Renters who lose their homes for whatever reason are being thrown into a marketplace of accelerating scarcity and cost. Purchasing a home becomes increasingly unaffordable for the middle class people we need to make our town work.
I fully support the immediate creation of this position to begin the work of addressing this crisis and coordinating Woodstock's initiatives to address this problem. Going forward, I would hope partnerships and additional funding might be found to offset some of the cost.
