Bob Sledd, Chair of Virginia’s Housing Policy Advisory Committee, is soliciting input on a statewide housing policy from housing advocates across the Commonwealth.
He writes: “On April 30, 2010, Governor McDonnell issued Executive Order 10, which established Virginia’s first executive housing policy framework. The Governor’s framework will guide the development of a statewide housing policy that will be announced in the fall. The Governor’s housing policy will address homelessness and affordable housing, as well as workforce housing, economic development, healthy neighborhoods, effective coordination with transportation, environmental issues and other housing related opportunities. The housing policy is being developed under my leadership as chair of the Housing Policy Work Group and Housing Policy Advisory Committee…We are now seeking input in the form of suggestions for addressing the identified critical housing issues. Broad policy areas, initially identified by the Virginia Housing Commission in 2006, provided the initial structure for soliciting comments. The Housing Policy Work Group identified several questions under each policy area that they would like you to address.”
Here’s the survey so that you can add your opinions (note: the survey will close July 9th).
