Affordable Housing Recommendations Approved by Wake Commissioners

The community is aware of the growing need for affordable housing because rapid growth is driving up property values and rents. To address this, on October 16, 2017 the Wake Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the 20-year Affordable Housing Plan set forth by the board appointed, Wake County Affordable Housing Steering Committee. WakeUP spoke in support of the recommendations and affordable housing plans to be put forth in the future.


We want to thank the Affordable Housing Steering Committee for all their hard work in 2017 developing these recommendations and thank the Board of Commissioners for approving them.WakeUP plans to advocate for many of the recommendations in the coming months. To read the plan, visit:
