Expand and Invest in Quality, Affordable Housing

The Problem

Our city lacks a clear, comprehensive housing strategy.

Michelle's Plan

  • Work with Alderpersons and housing advocates to create a clear, comprehensive housing plan for our city, while focusing on the needs of the 17th Ward.
  • Identify and work with developers who will create a housing stock that appeals to all levels of buyers and renters, including market rate, special needs, working class and older residents.
  • Help to develop programming designed to make our streets safe, eliminate problem properties, and attract basic goods and services.
  • Work to protect older residents from the impact of increased taxes as housing values increase due to area development projects.
