This article from the LA Times asks some important questions: “California needs to vastly increase its supply of homes, but it is becoming ever more risky to build them in the wildland-urban interface, or in low-lying coastal areas, or on floodplains, or next to freeways. So where can people live?”
California’s rural communities are facing the same plight when it comes to affordable housing and housing stock. It is time to get creative and use all the resources at our fingertips. In order to have a thriving, diverse economy we must make certain we have workforce housing. We can have affordable housing in our community without sacrificing our small-town charm.
