Last week, the city’s Affordable Housing Task Force presented its suggestions to City Council on how to implement affordable residential units in at least 20 percent of development throughout Pittsburgh. The proposal was created with help from four committees and with input from five community meetings. We’ll hear about the group’s progress and suggestions from City Planning Director Ray Gastil and City Councilman Daniel Lavelle. We’ll also ask Helen Gerhardt, member of the group Homes for All Pittsburgh, what she’d like to see in the next draft of proposals.
