Let Builders Build!
Unnecessary delays KILL housing.
We can't scream and yell how we need affordable housing and then drag the developer through the process for years and years.
We really need to streamline planning and permitting. Keep treating developers like the enemy, then where do we turn to build our housing when they get fed up? We need to collaborate, negotiate and move towards the common goal of building housing.
Every dollar that goes into local construction equals $2.15 OUT to the local economy. 100 Units built = 80 (direct/indirect) jobs created. (GenHousing)
More supply means better pricing, so let's get over the hurdles and expedite the processes.
