Finally, our housing analysis concluded that the region needs more than 70,000 additional homes that working families can afford. This includes roughly 14,000 affordable homes for people with disabilities, including older people. And we urgently need to create more affordable housing options in areas that are within commuting reach of new job centers far from downtown. To do that, we need a more unified approach to planning housing developments and transportation, keeping in mind where the jobs of the future will be. At the same time, we must continue to leverage federal and foundation dollars to bring much needed development to our highly challenged housing markets, like Sandtown.
