RT @ericmbudd: "preference for including a renter" on Housing Advisory Board. a single renter on a 9+ person board. more than 50%… https://t.co/BRku0tktjR
Rising property values help property owners and harm renters. Low & middle-income market rate renters experience housing insecurity as an ongoing source of stress and life instability in ways home owners and folks in permanently affordable housing don’t.
Sam suggesting that someone having been a renter in the past, even if they are now a home owner, would bring “the renter experience” to the board. But the incentives & experience are very, very different.
Bob & Mary both interested i having someone on the board that *doesn’t* live in Boulder, but works here. Sounds like such a board member would need to be non-voting.
Lots of discussion of renter & home owner spots on the board. Seems like there’s a general agreement on at a least 1 renter and 1 home owner (as if that wasn’t going to happen automatically)
