Every day that Traverse City housing projects and zoning reform are delayed – Traverse City’s housing shortage gets worse.
Our teachers, nurses, firefighters, wait staff, grocery clerks, and people experiencing homelessness/housing insecurity can’t keep waiting for homes to be built.
We need more homes now.
How are more homes being delayed in Traverse City?
- HomeStretch still hasn’t acquired Lot O
- The Planning Commission still hasn’t approved any of its 2022 zoning reform goals
- The City still hasn’t put any more of its housing-appropriate parcels in the pipeline
- Building height lawsuits continue to hold up ~200 new homes
How can you help?
Send a friendly nudge to your City Commission, Planning Commission and DDA Board that you’d like to see “housing” on the agendas of every one of their meetings from now through the end of the year.
The City Commission made housing their #1 2022 goal.
Let’s help them make that happen because waiting is no longer an option.
