In the Midst of a Crisis, Metro Takes on Affordable Housing

Will Voters Support the First-Ever Regional Affordable Housing Bond?



I'm genuinely confused-- did we not just do one of these last year? That passed? I remember voting for it, so I'm pretty sure that happened.

Also, is there any dispensation built into these taxes for the elderly or poor who happen to own their homes (because they used to be affordable)? I personally could swing this, but I have more than one neighbor in my now-completely-unaffordable neighborhood who owns their home because they bought it decades ago, but genuinely questions whether they'll be able to stay in the neighborhood if property tax keeps going up and their income does not.
