The Next Step: What can Rochester do to address affordable housing?

The Next Step: What can Rochester do to address affordable housing?

Introducing "The Next Step" — a new series where we ask local leaders and community members to weigh in on the issues of the day. More than a diagnosis of a problem, we are seeking out potential solutions and pushing the conversation forward. Join the discussion on Facebook.

Our first topic: Housing

What steps can we take as a community to ensure quality housing is within reach for our growing workforce? Are there programs or initiatives you support? What would it take to put these solutions into practice? Is progress already being made?
