Housing is eating up more and more Americans’ budgets and making it impossible to get ahead. There are ways to provide much more affordable housing but they require new approaches to zoning and development. If we relaxed zoning laws in certain areas it would enhance productivity and allow us to create many more affordable housing options.
Problems to be Solved
- Zoning laws have made the creation of affordable housing impossible in areas that are most in need of new housing, driving workers for those areas to multi-hour commutes
As President, I will…
- Work with localities to relax zoning ordinances for the purpose of increasing the development of affordable housing.
- Encourage the building of new innovative housing options like micro-apartments and communal living for people in high-density urban areas.
