Coalition for Affordable Housing and Transit Regular Meetings
3rd Mondays, 12:00-1:00 pm (starting in February 2017)
First Presbyterian Church, 305 E Main Street, 27701.
People’s Alliance is leading the Coalition for Affordable Housing & Transit so residents of all incomes can afford to live near rail transit stations and bus hubs in Durham. We need your help to achieve our Affordable Housing Goal in a Resolution, adopted unanimously by the City Council and County Commission. The Resolution sets a goal of 15% homes within a half-mile of each transit station to be affordable to residents earning less than 60% of area medium income (less than $40,000 for a family of 4). These are homes affordable to starting teachers, fire fighters, police officers and nurses, as well as Teacher Assistants, Nursing Assistants, and anyone working for minimum wage. PA had to fight for the goal to apply to each station instead of concentrating affordable housing around just one stop. We are working to with the City, County, nonprofits, and developers to implement this goal by including affordable homes in new development and preserving homes and land around transit stops.
