Housing

 

Housing options near transit provide access to jobs, schools and amenities such as businesses and health care providers.


 


Housing opportunities are available for people of all income levels in communities throughout the corridor, especially current low-, middle-income, and transit-dependent residents.

 

 


Our Work

                                                     PLCC has convened a housing work group to carry out the goals of the Community Agreement Action Plan: 

                                                                                          -> Build and maintain a thriving and balanced housing market
                                                                                          -> Mitigate market disruptions with adverse impacts on existing residents
                                                                                          -> Foster homeownership opportunities through the corridor

The PLCC’s Housing Action Goal Team has developed its first Housing Action Plan to guide the Coalition’s work over the next three years before the Purple Line opens. This year we have been getting input from staff and elected leaders in both counties, and meeting with community organizations, developers, civic and faith-based organizations. A housing survey was conducted in summer 2019 with almost 600 residents responding. Recently approved County plans, policies and zoning updates that also reflect significant community input also inform the 12 draft Housing Action Plan recommendations.

The PLCC Housing Action Plan is designed as a living document that will evolve with the Coalition to frame and steer our strategic focus as we collectively work to preserve the affordability and vitality of communities along the Purple Line. Creating the Coalition’s plan marks an important milestone in our progress, but there is much more work and change still to come. 

All communities along the corridor deserve decent housing and affordable choices, and this plan puts us on track and heading in the right direction to get there. We greatly value your ongoing support and look forward to working with you in the months ahead.
