Recommendations Directly From Our Community
As a result of listening to our communities recommendations on improving the quality of housing, NECIC has worked on a innovative solution for the community. The housing recommendations from the community's feedback were constructed into The Plan as follows:
-Increase housing code enforcement.
-Reduce land speculation.
-Develop affordable housing options, particularly for single childless adults, seniors, single parent families, ex-offenders, artists, residents in need of supportive housing and youth aging out of foster care system.
-Ensure that demolitions are being done in such a way that is conductive for future new construction.
-Increase the availability of housing related educational resources for residents including: financial literacy, personal credit, buyer readiness, and foreclosure prevention.
-Increase the capacity of local housing practitioners to improve all aspects of local housing, affordability, health, and safety etc.
