MT @NathanTriplett: Housing Commission has identified challenges, like vacant properties & economic hardships from down market #ELHousing

MT @NathanTriplett: Those challenges are real, but the solution Commission proposed lacks community support. It had shortcomings. #ELHousing

MT @NathanTriplett: Based on those facts, I will be recommending that Housing Commission ask Council to withdraw Ord 1288. #ELHousing

MT @NathanTriplett: The issues the Commission raised are real and important, but the proposed solution just isn't a good fit. #ELHousing

... but I think for a solution to really work, it needs broad and deep community support. That doesn’t exist for this proposal." #ELhousing
