Several affordable housing projects going up in metro Phoenix. But many more are needed
Only 20 apartments are on the market for every 100 low-income renters in the Valley, but some headway is being made. The article spotlights a handful of affordable housing developments going up and discusses Greenlight Communities, but it doesn’t mention that the company doesn’t take subsidies. The article also mentions most new apartments are unaffordable due to rising costs of land and construction and touches on NIMBYism, but doesn’t mention burdensome zoning laws and regulations.
