As housing affordability worsens, what will it take for Atlanta to better use residential space?
When Atlanta Civic Circle reported on metro housing leaders’ visions for denser, more diverse, and, therefore, more affordable residential communities this time last year, it gave public officials plenty of food for thought—and even some explicit legislative proposals.
So what’s changed since then? Not much, housing experts said this week.
“We certainly haven’t seen any improvement in regulation, or use of existing resources that I’ve seen—certainly not to the degree necessary to keep pace with demand,” Atticus LeBlanc, the CEO of start-up PadSplit, a management service for homeowners renting rooms to multiple tenants, told Atlanta Civic Circle last week.
