Developments must offer affordable housing for all
In my reading of The News article describing the development proposals for Women & Children’s Hospital, I was left with one major question. Is there a plan to include affordable housing in these developments? It would seem, in a city that is struggling mightily with issues of racial and income inequities, that the inclusion of a portion of apartments for families and individuals with limited economic resources would send a strong message that all of Buffalo’s growth and development is for all of Buffalo.
I urge our business and development community and our political leaders to take steps toward ensuring housing development is for all of our city’s residents – not only at the former Women and Children’s site, but in all large-scale developments.
