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.
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, and foster homeownership opportunities through the corridor. The PLCC’s Housing Action Goal Team is developing a Housing Action Plan to guide the Coalition’s work over the next 3.5 years before the Purple Line opens. 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 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.
Before finalizing the plan in early October, we invite you to review the summary recommendations and share with us any feedback or ways that you would like to engage with us on this work in the months ahead. Please send any comments or feedback below. We will continue to share updates in the coming months!
