Denver’s affordable-apartment program is finally ready to launch — smaller and later than Mayor Hancock first intended

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock makes his State of the City address in the gymnasium at the Hiawatha Davis Jr. Recreation Center on July 10, 2017, in Denver. He focused part of the address on affordable housing programs. When Denver Mayor Michael Hancock underlined the urgency of the city’s housing affordability crisis in a speech last summer, he declared: “Many residents need an affordable option today, not a year from now.” But that’s how long it will end up taking to launch the potentially innovative initiative Hancock announced with those words in July 2017. The plan then was to use taxpayer money to “buy down” the rents of vacant market-rate apartments… Read More

Why Columbus won the DOT Smart Cities Challenge2

Ohio’s capital city, Columbus, is rumored to have won the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Smart City Challenge, receiving $40 million from the DOT, and $10M from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Inc. — along with another $90 million pledged by private sector partners to change the mobility landscape of the city. “This funding is a game changer for the City of Columbus and central Ohio,” Sen.

The Monthly Interview: A Conversation with Christopher B. Leinberger

If you build it, they won’t come: Urbanist Chris Leinberger argues for harnessing market forces to reduce excessive housing costs. Among liberals, few topics are as hotly debated as gentrification. The issue is often presented in moralistic terms: privileged white people are pushing poor black and Hispanic people out of their neighborhoods. The truth is a little more complicated.

The rapid pace of change and rising rents also raise the danger,… Read More
