Affordable Housing: 'Still Ground Zero'

(RECAP: While the city has implemented some measures from its plan to expand affordable housing, other measures remain undone. The city’s 2013 Housing Master Plan (HMP) recommended 23 specific measures — or “tools” — to increase affordable housing. These tools include zoning ordinances, funding assistances, and other city programs. Eight have the highest potential to expand affordable housing, some proponents say. Of these high-impact tools, the city has implemented four so far, according to a Jan. 5 progress report from the Office of Housing.)
