Cities themselves are one of the biggest employers of people seeking workforce housing. Although they have all of the necessary tools (Planning & Zoning, Economic Development, Community Development, Housing Authority) they typically lack the technical expertise to address their growing workforce housing problems. Indeed, I have seen cities where as many as 70% of their employees are forced to commute to work each day because they cannot afford to live in the very town they serve.
My company offers the technical expertise to help cities address this growing problem. Visit our website at tartanresidential.com for more information.
From the piece:
“The Myrtle Beach City Council voted in favor of two resolutions on Tuesday that they hope will help solve the lack of housing options for city employees.”
