Final Vote on Housing Opportunity Fund Happening Dec 20th!

The final vote on the housing opportunity fund is happening tomorrow, December 20th at the City County Building (414 Grant Street) at 10am.

PPT supports the creation of this fund, especially based on the community control through the advisory board, the tenant protections, and the anti-displacement policies. However, we are very concerned that access to frequent transit went from being a “requirement” (in the legislation from July) to a “priority.” The current legislation requires that the funds go to affordable housing in “high opportunity” areas but that should explicitly be defined as areas with access to frequent transit and bikeable/walkable streets.

Please come to show your support for the fund and to share your concerns about the removal of the transit requirement language. Here’s the fb link to the event:
