Improve Housing Options for All Residents
Finding enough affordable housing in Hall County is a serious problem for a growing number of people, one which is well-recognized by local government, businesses, and social agencies. Housing affordability and availability are complex issues involving many factors and with many possible solutions. However, without affordable housing options, many entry level workers who are critical to our quality of life, such as teachers, policemen, and firemen, must commute from long distances and cannot build the lasting ties of residency in Hall County.
Wisdom Project 2030’s Accessible Housing Committee contributes to the United Way of Hall County’s “One Hall” Financial Stability Housing Committee and are working to identify long-term housing needs and supply, define enabling rules and regulations, and develop community education on the issues.
“I wanted to understand what was happening with housing in our community and see how I could help find good solutions. I found that my past work and volunteer experience gave me the tools and contacts I needed to contribute.”
Duane, Committee Member
