City council plans for more affordable housing

Affordable housing is one of the most talked about issues in Austin. City council members tell KVUE people in their district will often ask for more affordable housing. “Our latest strategic plan for affordable housing shows that we need over 135,000 more homes within our city within the next 10 years if we don’t want to keep pushing people out of the city, and at least 60,000 of those have to be available for people in working class jobs. These are the hard working folks that are doing everyday work from service industry jobs to lots of middle skill jobs,” said Council Member Greg Casar.
