PACDC will have signs and buttons for supporters, so let us know if you’re coming by RSVPing.
WHEN: Monday, November 27th at 10 am
WHERE: City Council Chambers, Room 400 City Hall
WHAT: Hearing on Bill No. 170678, which creates a Mixed Income Housing Program
ABOUT: Affordable Homes for a Growing Philly
Philadelphia’s development boom is leading to rents and home prices rising beyond what many Philadelphians can afford.
Rising housing costs mean that some Philadelphians will get pushed out of the neighborhoods they call home, and create more segregation based on income, denying people better economic and educational opportunities, and improved quality of life.
Everyone should benefit from a growing city, and Philadelphia should become a model for equity and inclusion by creating more affordable homes for our low- and moderate-income neighbors.
That’s why PACDC is advocating for the Mixed Income Housing Program. Read more and endorse the campaign at http://pacdc.org/policy/affordablephilly/
