Condos in Old Town, Alexandria.

Condos in Old Town, Alexandria.

The city of Alexandria has 16,000 fewer market-rate affordable houses available than it did in 2000. While activists and city officials wrestle with how to preserve and increase Alexandria’s affordable housing stock, low-income residents say they’re being squeezed out. Our guests look at new proposals, including building housing on land owned by Metro, and discuss the future of 38-year old legislation that preserves public housing in the area.

Guests

  • John Chapman Councilmember, Alexandria City Council
  • Sasha-Ann Simons Housing & Urban Development Reporter, WAMU 88.5
