Background: In the December 2016 Woodlawn Neighborhood Association meeting, attendees began a project to create a value statement or policy for how we as a neighborhood feel about affordable housing (and possibly other related topics). More information about the exercise is available in the December meeting minutes. Since then the Land Use and Transportation Committee has created a draft statement.

We will review and refine at the March 2017 meeting – please review the attached PDF and come with comments! Draft Affordable housing WNA 2017
